About Boston

Adoption Fee: $100
German Shepherd / Belgian Malinois
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female

Boston is a sweet, loving and high energy pup! She's 11 months old and 65 lbs. We think she's got some Belgian Malinois or German Shepherd mix.She's athletic, loves tug, fetch and to play with other dogs. She loves going to the dog park and to dog day care. It takes time for her to warm up to people but once she does, she loves to snuggle after a long day of exercise and play. Boston is incredibly smart, very trainable and has all her basic obedience down. We are working on her mouthiness and impulse control but the good news is training is one of her favorite games! We think she would be great at dog sports with her endless energy, love for a job and quick ability to learn. We love her to pieces but we are realizing she needs a home with a private yard large enough to get her daily exercise in, which we don't have. We currently take her to dog parks/off leash areas 1-2x per day for 2-3 hrs of exercise a day, but it would be great if she could get all that exercise in her own backyard and only need to head out to the dog park or day care occasionally. She can be reactive to strangers on leash and in the car and is taking medication for anxiety which runs about $15 per month. She has made a TON of progress and needs a loving & patient person or couple committed to continuing her counter conditioning and desensitization training. She is a wonderful puppy and we have no doubt she'll be a great dog, she just needs a slower introduction to the world. Boston did bite my partner on the arm when she was scared by neighbor outside and my partner grabbed her collar suddenly to bring her inside. This happened at about 6 months old, before she started the medication and isn't the reason we're rehoming her, but her future family should know she is a typical mouthy Mal. She would do best in a home with working dog experience in a quiet neighborhood and another dog for her to play with and show her the world isn't so scary. She's crate trained, house trained, spayed, up to date on her shots, microchipped, and has basic obedience (knows: sit, down, stay, extended stays, no, place, recall, touch, look, leave it, drop it, take it, off, find it, loose leash walking- heel is in progress). We want to reiterate that her new family must be committed to continuing her counter conditioning and desensitization training.
