Posted Breed: Shepherd / Husky / Mixed. Adoption Fee: $175. 6/15/17 Malcom (Mal) will be a wonderful dog for the right person, well-behaved, companionable, and very loyal. Mal looks similar to a white German shepherd, and like that breed is very loyal, a devoted companion who is very focused on obeying & protecting his person. He is neutered, up to date on shots, crate trained, and housetrained. He is quiet, doesn't chew, and walks well on a leash, and takes treats extremely gently. Mal loves his toys and will carefully pick them up and show them proudly to us to admire when we come into the room, and will immediately let go, if we ask to take it. Sometimes he carries a favorite outside with him, puts it carefully down while he moves off to do his business, then picks them up to bring back to the house. Mal is a such a sweetheart with us, his foster parents, and it's a shame he's still is looking for a permanent home. He would do best in a quiet home with with patient dog-experienced people, especially a family who wants a loyal protective dog. He is good with submissive dogs or cats he knows but is dominant & pushy with other dogs. This may be because before he came to rescue he had been attcked and injured by other dogs. He is also anxious and nervous around new people, and will act protective, however we have learned a process for meeting new people that helps him make human friends in less than 15 minutes. 11/14/15: Mal is such a well-behaved boy that the other day when I accidentally left a package of hot dogs on the kitchen table, it was still there when I got home from work. I don't think we've ever had another dog who wouldn't have eaten them when they were sitting out for 6 hours! Update 10/16/14: I just adore this dog! Mal is quiet and well-behaved, will sit and hug on command, and we are working on ball and shake. He wants nothing more than to be with us, but isn't clingy and does well when alone. Although interested in the cats, I think he'd be fine with a dog-savvy cat, and he's co-existing well now with our submissive dogs. 8/18/14 Update: Malcolm just arrived a southern shelter Aug. 16th. He is a super super sweet, gentle and quiet boy, who just wants to please. Malachi will be an extremely handsome boy once he's put on some weight, cleaned up, and had some good quality food to improve his coat. He was just treated for heartworm last week, so needs to rest for three more weeks before resuming normal activity, but could be adopted at the end of the month by someone willing to monitor him until that time. Notes from the shelter: This is Malachi…..who came in filthy and covered with fleas. I just don’t need to get started on that. These pics were taken before his bath, so next week, I’ll try to get pics of clean Malachi for you. He is a sweet boy, as you can see here. He had probably never had a bath in his life, but he was very good and SO enjoyed the gentle scrubbing to get the layers of dirt off his skin and no doubt itching from the fleas. He’s a gentle dog, and very pretty, and will be even prettier once his coat gets shiny and pretty from good nutrition and no fleas. He is HW positive. I think he is only about 2-3 years old and weighs 35 lbs.

verifiedPosted Breed: Border Collie / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. 5/10/17 Update from the foster mom: She is doing well. She's spooked by random things, she won’t walk by my rain boots if they are by the door. But she is much happier. She loves to be outside and to go on walks. She does better with walking if we are at a park rather than in a neighborhood. She feels the need to stop and look at every house as we walk by. Almost like she’s going to buy that house. She seems to have tummy issues about once a month but I spoke to the vet and they didn’t seem to concerned since she still is being active. She even wagged her tail the pass two days when I got home from work. She must know the sound of my car now because she’ll be waiting at the door for me so we can go outside when i get home. She loves to chew on fleece like things, such as blankets and pillows. I have since gotten her a fleece chew toy to discourage her from eating my things. She hates getting a bath and is shedding like crazy. She’s a good listener. She won’t really come to you if you call her to just pet her, but if I stand by the door and say lets go outside she’ll walk/run to the door and stand at the top of the stairs for me to put her lease on. She’ll also look out the window and grower and bark if there is a cat or rabbit outside. Depending on the time of day/night i have to say no or stop. The first two photos are after I said no and stop. First she tried to out smart me by just resting her head on the the arm of the love seat. The next one is where I told het stop again. haha she looked so guilty. Other than that which is super rare, she’s quiet. Chews on her bones and plays with her toys. She sometimes comes up for a pet but mostly she hangs on her couch. When I bring her to my parents she’ll play with their dog Penny. And when she wants a break from Penny she’ll hang under their dinning from table. She’s a sweet girl 2/16/17 Update fro the foster mom:Knaan is doing fine. She's starting to explore more outside. She likes to look at the Bunny that is hiding in the bushes out back. 1/16/17 Knaan arrived from a shelter yesterday and is still a little overwhelemd with all the changes. She is prettier her than her shelter pictures show, but very scared, especially of men, so she will need a patient owner to help her learn to trust. Notes from the shelter: Our 2 little black girls Knaan and Knollie (rescued previously) got to spend a long time hanging our with the students today. The students wanted to give our shy girls as much time out as possible so they just sat in the sun and hung out. These girls have been at the shelter for a long time and they have not had much opportunity to get out. Both are sweet girls, Knollie is more outgoing at this point and was more relaxed being surrounded by people while Knaan needs a little more time to warm up. Knaan does come up to you for attention, but she is a sweet, quiet girl, not demanding. Knaan is a beautiful girl who needs the company of other dogs. She sat very still while the students petted her.
