4-year-old, male, large, Belgian Malinois mix Good with other dogs: Selective Good with children: No Good with cats: No We rescued Jefke from the local shelter many months ago. He's a good looking Belgian Malinois mix of about 4 years old. He took an extended staycation with one of our wonderful fosters, but due to her work schedule and extended hours, he had to come back to the rescue. He was very protective of his home and didn't welcome the dog sitters with open paws, so this may be an issue that needs to be worked through. He is a VERY active boy, and particularly loves the ball. He was running almost every day with his foster, and he gets so excited when he thinks he's about to go on a run. He actually tries to put his own head through the slip lead! He knows several commands, knows how to use a dog door, loves toys, does well on a leash and is housetrained and crate trained. Jefke will need to be placed with a strong handler with some breed experience. We are looking for a home with no children or cats, as he may give chase. He may be OK with another dog given a proper introduction. If you have an active life and you think you have what it takes to bring Jefke into your home and heart, please fill out our online application to get the approval process started. We will not schedule meet & greets without an approved app on file. Here's the link: http://savingpawsrescueaz.com/adoption-form/
