Malachi is an agile neutered male black and gold Shepherd mix approximately 12 months old. Malachi was surrendered after being “too much puppy” for his family. They loved him dearly but weren't able to provide him with the boundaries and consistency that he required growing up. Malachi is dog friendly (goes too doggie day care), house trained, very ball/ treat motivated, and loves to go for rides or on walks. He knows how to sit, down, roll over and shake. He is protective of his home but not to a fault, and enjoys lying in front of the fireplace next to his human. He’s a bundle of energy, and requires an active household. Malachi enjoys his chew toys and without them he’s likely to find something else to chew on. He sleeps at night either on a dog bed or in a crate without a problem. No chickens or cats for this guy! Malachi also enjoys being loved on and watching as people do their chores. Malachi’s perfect home understands the intelligence of the breed, need for daily exercise, mental stimulation, and need to have consistency and leadership.
