About Kuah

Adoption Fee: $50
Belgian Malinois / German Shepherd
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

Greetings dear Animal Lovers. Kush is an almost 1 year old Belgian Malinois/German Shepherd, neutered male. He has been a part of our family since the beginning of May. Kush is leashed trained and house broken. He lives with 3 female humans, 1 Golden Retriever and 3 cats. The wonderfulness about dear Kush: With his owners, Kush is loving, sweet, playful and mindful. He is crate trained, but prefers to sleep with his human family or on the couch (when invited). He plays well with his brother dog, Arlo. He loves to run, play fetch and cuddle. He and his brother stay inside our home while we are at work, approximately 6 hours a day, 5 days/week. They go potty before and after, with no accidents. We have a very rhythmic schedule that serves them well... We are up between 5:45 and 6:00. We go out on a leash to go potty, then come inside for breakfast. Cuddle and play time until 7:00. Potty once more, then they are inside until we return home. Occasionally, a roll of toilet paper will be fiddled with, or a newspaper, but other than that, they play with their squeaky toys and sleep. In the afternoon, they are outside in a large enclosed area, where they can run and play until dark, then it's inside for the night, save for potty time. Kush has some challenges that come with his youth and temperament. 1. Kush is very protective of his owners, which can frighten visitors wary of this breed. I appreciate his protective nature and have found that once Kush is comfortable and feels safe, he relaxes and goes about his business. 2. He is an 'alarm barker', meaning that if he is alarmed or aware of something or someone outside or at the door, Kush will bark. Speaking to Kush in a soothing, reassuring voice, or distracting him usually works. We have a lot of deer and turkey that wander about! 3. Kush loves to chase cats, and he is very strong! 4. Kush is a 'runner' and if let out of his pen or leash will run like the wind! He will not return until he is good and ready, especially if he is chasing something. Kush has not chased a human, but if a human has another animal scent on his/her/they clothing, Kush will aggressively want to put his snout there to sniff and sniff. It is not hurtful, just very annoying. The reason we need to find a home for Kush is because Kush has raced to our neighbors house to eat their cat food and search for their cat. He will bark his loud bark and be a nuisance.They have a young child in the family and are understandably uncomfortable with Kush. We live out in the country with no-fence yards. The law of the land out here is 'if an animal trespasses onto your property, and you feel threatened, you have the right to shoot it'. I do not wish to have that happen to our dog, but know that is a very real possibility. We have reached out to friends with yards, as well as his wonderful trainer, to see if we can find a new, loving home for Kush. We would love to be able to visit him too. I n return for your kindness, we will deliver Kush to your home with everything he will need. We will provide food for a month and a 6 month supply of Next-guard. as well as his favorite treats, toys, bed and his favorite pillow. Even though Kush is quite large, he really loves to be inside, cozied up with family and friends. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I have many more pictures, that are way cuter, but this was what I could upload. In gratitude, Eloisa
