The Malinois, a litter of the Israeli male Malinois crossed with an American bitch, is preferred for patrol units, commando operations and difficult missions on harsh terrain. 


CISF wants to use the breed to exclusively help them in stopping ‘fidayeen (suicide) attacks’ and are spending lakhs of rupees per month in training the dogs to sniff out any such danger.

Even though the CISF will recruit more dogs after Khoj later this year, the Belgian Malinois was first inducted by ITBP in 2011.
