Adoption Fee: $495.00 - Adult Dogs 1-7 Years (2023 fee)
Meet Barry, a 1–2 year-old Malinois! This deep voiced crooner is the BIGGEST dopey lovebug. We should have named him Leggy because he sure is a tall one! This big boy wants nothing more than to curl up on top of you and snuggle on the couch and watch TV.
He is a very low energy malinois, needs less than 2–4 hours of exercise per day. He is picking up quick on his obedience, already learning sit, down, stay, wait. Crate trained, potty trained, not a huge wanderer and is doing well on recall training. No barrier aggression, no dog aggression, no cat aggression, no livestock aggression (including chickens), no resource (food or toy) guarding. In fact we have seen zero aggression at all despite being thoroughly temperament tested, not even a growl. He does not have a mean bone in his body. He has no ball drive and does not seem be a working or sport candidate but we don't mind because he sure makes up for it with his sweetness.
He loves all children and instantly gives them the lean of love while staring at them dreamily. His preferred stance is on his back with all 4 paws in the air because why would you do anything else than rub his belly? He truly is a dog that just wants to hang out and chill.
He loves going on walks and does well on a leash. He would do well with another dog in the house. He seems to do well at all energy levels from eeyore to border collie.
The only negative we have seen is a little bit of separation anxiety but he respects the crate and is non destructive. He barks for a few minutes, then lays down and goes to sleep.
