He was brought here after being picked up running along the highway as a stray. He jumped in the man's vehicle and befriended him immediately. The man knew we were the only ones that would not kill him, so he immediately brought him here at 5:30 in the evening..... So the story goes!
Do we believe a dog that is this bad of a fear biter was handled by a stranger? Humm....I dont think so! Anyway Malone wanted to eat us and was one of the worst cases of fear biting we have dealt with. It took three days before we could touch him without a catch pole. He is slowly warming up to people.
From the looks of Malones neck it is obvious he was chained. When we tried to get him to play ball, he cowered like he had been beaten. At only about a year old from the looks of his teeth, what could this boy do so wrong to be so fearful? Ones like him just break our hearts...and its going to take a VERY SPECIAL person with experience dealing with a dog like this.
Malone doesn't seem to know any commands at all...but we are working on it slowly. Malone brings to mind the TRUE meaning of a NO-KILL shelter which we are, thanks to our wonderful donors, THANK YOU! Every animal deserves a forever home, and a dog like Malone deserves one too....but, he will definitely need an experienced handler/adopter who will take the time (like us) to work with him and get him over his fears. He will be best in a home with NO young kids, no cats, and no other dogs.
