A volunteer writes: Gorgeous in her rich caramel color coat, Malorie is always ready to meet new people and ready to play. Surrendered to our care as her people are moving where she’s not welcome, we’re told that she’s outgoing and playful, lived with an 8 year old with whom she liked to play wrestle, doesn’t guard her things, enjoys showers and baths, is scared of a broom and will bark at it, is housetrained, crate trained and knows ‘sit’ and ‘stay’. Malorie and I enjoyed our walk to the park, her leash manners are lovely, she pottied as soon as we were outside, and she loved watching the kids playing ball in the park. I couldn’t decide whether it was the ball or the kids who kept her attention (as she stood and watched with her tail wagging), or maybe both. There was a lot going on in the park and Malorie was unfazed by all the activity, simply watching and enjoying it all.
Malorie greeted a little dog walking with her person with an easy tail wag, and in group play she engages in bursts of running play with both males and females, but can get overwhelmed with very exuberant play. In the yard we played ball, Malorie enjoying the game. She’s been beautifully taken care of and is looking for a new family with whom to
play, go on long walks and get plenty of exercise. She’s got great energy and would love to share it with you.
Malorie was brought in as an owner’s surrender due to owner moving. Owner has had Malorie for the past year after receiving her from her previous owner. Owner says Malorie does not have any injured or health concerns.
Socialization & behavior
Malorie is described as being outgoing and playful when meeting strangers, owner says Malorie will attempt to jump and play with them. Malorie lived with an 8-year old, and owner says the two were very playful, often having rough wrestling play. Malorie behaviors in the home with other animals are unknown, but in passing she attempts to play with other dogs. According to owner there have been no past issues of Malorie biting anyone or another animal. Malorie becomes scared when seeing the broom and will continuously bark at it. Owner says if she attempts to touch Malorie’s food while she’s eating she will keep attempting to place her body between owner and the food. If she continues Malorie does a “sneezing noise” but allows her to grab it. Malorie allows owner to remove items from her mouth and is trained not to get onto furniture. Malorie enjoy showers and baths.
For a New family to Know
Malorie is described as playful, excitable, and friendly with a high activity level. When home she is normally following her owner and enjoys all toys. She is taken out once a day, and is house-trained going outdoors, owner said she never has accidents. When home alone Malorie is in her kennel, owner says she’ll sometimes chew shoes if out. Malorie understands commands sir, stay, good/bad girl.
Behavior during Intake
Malorie was friendly and excitable during intake. She leapt onto counselor to show affection and allowed petting. Malorie accepted treats and allowed all handling. Malorie sat when instructed and allowed collaring. Malorie showed no signs of aggression during intake.
Malorie came into our center as an owner surrender citing moving issues. It is reported she lived with an 8 year old, playful together and sometimes they engaged in rough wrestling play. Owner reports Malorie will attempt to place her body between owner and her food bowl if owner attempts to touch it while she is eating, she barks at brooms. It is reported Malorie may chew shoes if left out alone, so she is crated when no one is home. She is reportedly housebroken to use the bathroom outside. Malorie is described as playful, excitable, and friendly with a high activity level. During intake, Malorie was friendly and excitable, leaping onto counselor to show affection, she allowed all handling. Walking on leash for her relief walk, Malorie may buck backwards if she doesn’t want to go to certain areas (down stairs, back in the building, etc). She pulled out of assessor’s hands on three Look attempts, displaying high energy and movement. Malorie was difficult to position for Sensitivity item, but once fully positioned she leaned into assessor, open mouth, body soft. Malorie followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, became playful and jumped up on assessor towards end of game. She did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts, displaying high energy and movement in between, jumping on assessor at end of item. Malorie kept a firm grip on Toy, loose body. When off leash with other dogs, Malorie greets politely with soft body language, appears interested. Due to her energy and exuberance, including mouthing and jumping, the Behavior Team feels Malorie would do best with an Experienced adopter. Malorie may benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners as well as body awareness and focus in regards to jumping up/mouthing.
