A volunteer writes:
Hucch is a tan, eight month old Belgian malinois. He came into the shelter with another dog. His owner had to suddenly move into an apartment and feels that it is not fair to keep him cooped up in a small studio all day.
His behavior around strangers is dependent on how the person approaches him. He can be a bit weary of strangers but when the person approaches slowly from the side, and allows him to sniff he will allow them handling. He had been around children ages two, three, five and had played gently with them. He had lived with another dog and they had been friendly and playful with each other. On walks to the park, when he would encounter other dogs he would want to approach them.
He will relieve himself on walks outside to the park and he does not have accidents in the home. His owner had attempted to give him a bath but Hucch had not appeared to like it. The owner had not brushed him due to the fact that he has a short coat that is very low maintenance. Thusly the owner is unsure about whether he would tolerate having his coat brushed, although he suspects that he would not mind.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW:
Hucch is still a puppy which is evident in his playful demeanor. He is high energy and loves to play with his dog companion and people. He had spent a lot of time outside in the yard, where he and his dog buddy would often be found playfully wrestling. His owner did mention that Hucch had a tendency to dig holes in the yard from time to time. Since moving into the city the owner had opted to take Hucch on frequent walks to the park. He would pull excitedly on the leash which his owner would correct by stopping every time the pulling became too much.
BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE:
The owner notified the counselor about Hucch’s apprehension towards strangers. The counselor went slow when approaching him. After smelling the counselor he immediately began wagging his tail and sat while the counselor pet him. The counselor tried to collar him which became difficult only because he kept trying to give the counselor his paw which eventually led to him laying down and rolling over to expose his belly. The counselor pet him and played with him for a bit then distracted him with a treat so he could be collared. He took the treats gently and allowed the counselor to put a new leash on him.
Hucch is a 10 month old Belgian Malinois. He is a a altered male. Owner adopted him from ACC along with another dog from the same household prior. Owner has had them for 2 months and is surrendering due to him biting the owner. There are no injuries or health concerns owner is aware about and has not been to the vet within the two months.
Around strangers he is anxious and barks when approaching. He has to smell you first before being pet. He has not lived with any children but spent time with a 4 year old child. He was respectful and usually tolerant with child but doesnt play with them. He plays exuberant and usually rough with adults in the house. He lived with a 2 year old dog and was very tolerant with him. They played very rough together. He has not lived with any cats with owner. There is a bite history with a person but not with animal.
Owner stated that there are no behavior issues. He isnt bothered with storms or fireworks. He isnt bothered with touching of food bowl, taking a bone or toy out his mouth, holding or restraining him. Owner has not tried to give him a bath or trim his nails. He isnt bothered with brushing of coat. He barks at unfamilair approaches to house or family member.
