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.
