(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Spayed or Neutered,
ADOPTABLE Belgian Malinois!
Good with kids, cats, smaller to medium sized dogs, and tortoises.
Will be your shadow but doesn't need a lot of attention. He just wants to be near you but not on you.
Calm, happy boy.
Crate, leash, house, and car trained.
Likes pools and sprinklers.
No small critters, including fish tanks.
Age: 3 years
Male/Female: Neutered male
He loves people! He isn't needy and doesn't need to touch you hardly at all, BUT he loves to follow you and be by your side as much as possible. He would be a great travel partner or stay-at-home lazy pup
Excited by lizards! Lizards are LIFE with this guy Butterflies, grasshoppers and fish tanks are super exciting too!
Calm, gentle, somewhat independent, enjoys sleeping in bed with you when it's time to sleep, happy, curious about what you are doing
He LOVES meeting new people. He gives googly eyes to new friends and sits on their feet almost immediately
His tail doesn't wag like a normal pup Two vets have confirmed that it was probably an injury as a puppy. His tail wags front to back instead of side to side. When he is really excited it does an almost helicopter circle. It never wags like a normal pup's tail.
Favorite type of toy: Balls and tug toys
Favorite activity: Chasing lizards, playing with toys, and wrestling his foster doggie brothers.
Good in car: Jumps right in and rides like a pro in the back seat!
Likes water: He went right into a backyard, inground pool that had a big step for lounging. He even found the small step in the deep end. He didn't swim in the water, but enjoyed the steps and lounging. He runs through sprinklers too.
Up to date on shots: yes
Energy level (when they wake up, what is their energy like?): Low to Medium - He is gonna see what you are up to, but he is happy to chill by himself.
Strength on leash: Medium to High - He will pull but it's not overwhelming for a typical, healthy adult.
Kids: Has liked babies and interacted with children. It's important you do safe introductions and not allow children to hit, pull, or yell at him.
Cats: He did great when he was younger with cats. He has met Street cats and cats in a home while with his foster and he was so gentle and chill.
Small dogs: He does great with small/medium sized dogs. He is great at reading other dogs and their play/energy style.
Big dogs: he seems to get overwhelmed by any dog near his size or bigger. He needs medium to small dogs in his new home unless he's an only dog.
Other (chicken, llamas, goats, etc): Likes tortoises. No fish tanks or smaller creatures.
Leash-trained: Yes, but somewhat pulls, so not great for a walker that needs a calmer dog.
PLAY STYLE WITH OTHER BIG DOGS
Gentle and Dainty (let's sniff around together): Yes, his foster home has one dog that interacts this way, and they sniff their way through the yard.
Push/Pull (you chase me, I'll chase you): his foster home has one dog that likes to play this way and Trigger does great!
Rough and Rowdy (let's get our play wrestle on): He wrestles hard core with one of my 20lbs chihuahua mixes. He is gentle with him but still wrestles with lots of friendly, playful barks and noises..
Rockstar/Helper/Greeter (great with variety of dogs and help humans with playgroup): Yes!
He went to a home to help his foster pet sit with 13 dogs. He did great with all the small to medium dogs. After a few days, he didn't do well with the bigger dogs in the home.
Sit: You MUST make him sit at doorways. He WILL dart out the door if you're not careful (his foster guarantees he will dart out the door to chase butterflies and lizards). He sits for treats like a champ.
Stay/Wait: This seems like a command of his, but it's always been with treats in hand.
Gentle: His previous owner taught him this command and he tends to back off from whatever activity he is doing when used.
