MALLOY - 5 years old, 65 pounds, house trained, friendly, active, likes females, needs time to warm up to men, interested in cats but has not been around them, may be ok with some dogs, protective of his owner, no children.
Malloy was barking and barking from behind the cage doors and he has quite the bark! This big boy is actually a bit bigger than you think when he's out of his cage but it just makes him more adorable--- yes, 65 pound dogs can be adorable! Malloy was surrendered to us when he became protective of his owner. He is house trained. He only eats when he feels safe. This is something we see in many of our shelter dogs, not taking treats from people they do not know yet. Time. Time is important. We need to understand it takes time for some dogs to adapt to new people and places. This actually goes for some people, too! Malloy has shown interest in cats but has never been around them. He also prefers the company of females and needs a bit of time to warm up to men. He has been sweet with the VBACAC staff though which we appreciate as he's stuck in a shelter and no longer in a home so let's do this! Malloy is taking appointments so call us at 757*385*4444 to make that appointment!
