This was how Henri van Aldaba de Haan Hettema expressed himself about Dewet (60 cm. high), when he was judge for the dog show in Brussels in 1902:
“He is a magnificent dog, very well built, with an excellent coat and highly recommended, remarkable shoulders and chest, back and croup out of the line, good head, fautless carrying of the tail, small triangular ears, excellent general effect. But, since there is always a but, the colour is rather pale. This fault however is largely compensated by the black mask and the strong shade on the shoulders.” Belgiandogs.org
Dewet was a powerful, but also a very coarse subject, whose fawn color was both too light and too charcoaled. BBA p51
The Malinois Dewet (6466) is now the property of Mr. Joseph Drossart of Wasmes.
