In the U.S. efforts were made to establish the breed. At first the Malinois had to compete with the Groenendael and Tervuren under the general heading of Belgian Sheepdog. In 1959, the breeds were separated and the first two became Belgian Sheepdog and the Belgian Tervuren respectively. However, there were so few Malinois in the country that full recognition was not given until 1965 when the A.K.C. gave the breed full status and approved its standard.)
