Dante is a sweet, loving cuddle bug that walks fairly well on a leash and is house trained.
Like most Belgian Malinois, he is smart and athletic, and he will benefit from plenty of exercise and training. He needs a confident human who will lead and provide structure and boundaries, especially in new surroundings or with a change in routine. If he knows you’re in control, he will be able to relax and enjoy the dog life, and will focus on giving you all of his love. He needs someone who will help him build confidence to avoid issues with separation anxiety.
Dante came to us as an owner surrender. He lived with another dog but on leash he can also be dog reactive. He will need continued training to work with him on this. Dante’s new home should have previous experience with this breed and if there are children, they should be over the age of 12.
