Saving Paws Rescue is committed to placing these dogs in homes that are able to meet the needs of the breed. Most of these dogs are not suitable for the average family pet home. They need high mental and physical exercise. Sassy will require a home that has previous malinois owner/handler experience. Sassy can do well with equally active dogs, but not senior, small dogs or cats for this girl. She is a rough play and expects that back from her playmates. She aims to please so when you are working with her she is ready to go. Obedience and leash training a must. Additional work/dog sports ( nose, SAR, agility, Rally) would be GREAT. We are working on her house breaking, but in a kennel it is hard to do, so some initial work on housebreaking may be necessary, but this girl is S.M.A.R.T so shouldn't take but a few days at all. Sassy will not be placed in a home with small children. As is common for the breed, jumping, nipping and racing around are behaviors that can place a small child at risk. Older teens or no children in the home would be ideal. This girl is fun, busy and faster than lightning.
