DescriptionGerman Shepherd Dog / Belgian Shepherd Malinois / Mixed
Special NeedsTommy was adopted from us 3/1/17 at 4 mos old but now returning back to us at 6 mos old due to lack of time to take him to puppy training exercise and weekly dog socials. He now needs a very experienced adult foster home for all training training classes socials and daily active exercise. He is smart and needs the training now to ensure he will be a good citizen as an adult. We have to see how dog reactive he is now. He doesn't know any commands and will jump on people to greet them. Fun dog sport would benefit him. Tommy was rescued from a crowded shelter. He is super friendly active playful and confident. Great with other dogs. He needs training with guarding his bully stick chew (low growl) with trade. He is thin (was starved) and needs healthy food. Tommy is smart and knows to sit for treats. Loves attention and needs training. He is ready for puppy classes and fun socials. Tommy is adorable. Due to chew bone (high value) guarding he needs an experienced adult home to train him. Maybe dog experienced kids 12 yrs+. He will grow up to be a large smart and athletic dog. More info. to come as we learn about his personality.
