Zuko's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Zuko's Story...
Adoption fee on this dog is $300.

Zuko is a 12 to 18 month old Malinois who was surrendered to a Sacramento area shelter when the owner had no time to train or devote to him. He is a slender male with long legs that can propel him 4 feet off the ground when he is excited. Zuko is very affectionate and can be a bit pushy by insisting on getting his head scratched by any available hand. If he feels ignored, you may also get a paw on your leg to remind you he is near and ready for a good petting.

Although he was outside for a good amount of time before coming into rescue, he has developed decent house manners and has not had an accident in his current foster home. He sleeps in a crate at night, and settle fairly well on his dog bed in the living room during the day.

Zuko is looking for a very active home that will meet his exercise needs, and a home without small children, as he can be a little mouthy when excited. A home with another young active dog who likes to play rough would also be desirable. Zuko needs continued basic training and socialization to develop to his full potential as an amazing companion dog.

This dog is a Level 3. Please be sure you understand what a dog of this Level requires. Go to our GCGSR Dogs page for an explanation of the Dog Rating Levels.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zuko, a Sacramento Belgian Laekenois dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Belgian Laekenois for sale in Sacramento, or seeking a Belgian Laekenois dog from a breeder in Sacramento.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sacramento already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Sacramento breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Belgian Laekenois breeders who help with Belgian Laekenois rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sacramento paves the way for another one to be saved.
