Rhea 64263

Date Available for Adoption: 05-21-2024

I am a 2 year old, Female, Belgian Malinois Mix.

Rhea has won all of our our hearts here at HSWC. She is a beautiful girl with a great personality. She wandered into a yard with another dog and cat that was not hers and ended up taking a ride on the Animal Control bus. We thought this girl would be reclaimed quickly but sadly no owners came for her. So now the quest begins to find the right home for this beautiful Malinois.
Like most herding breeds, Malinois have a high prey drive and are strongly interested in moving objects. This trait can lead to chasing children, vehicles, or other animals and so should be directed into acceptable activities through training.
She is smart, confident, and versatile. The Belgian Malinois breed is a world-class worker who forges an unbreakable bond with his human partner. To deny a Mal activity and the pleasure of your company is to deprive her of her very reasons for being.
Rhea is very interested in other dogs and cats.
She is highly excitable around young active children and should go to home with no children.
She has not yet been taught how to manage her excitement. She is very smart and willing to learn. The transition into her new home should follow the two week shut down process closely to give her a very slow instruction to the routine of her new family.
She is going to be a wonderful addition to an active family.
Meet and greets will be required with other dogs. Please consider if her high energy will be compatible with your dog’s energy to maintain peace in your home.
Please research this breed and come and visit this delightful young girl. She is currently in a foster home though, so a meeting needs to be scheduled.
