VegasVegas Head

Ready to feel like you hit the jackpot? Vegas is a lean and tall 1.5 year old German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois mix who came to us after spending nearly 3 months at the local shelter. Vegas was surrendered to the shelter after his owner passed away where due to shelter overcrowding, he was constantly overlooked. Vegas was said to have lived with two little dogs prior to coming to the shelter. Vegas is an active dog who would love a home with another dog that can match his rough & rowdy play style or active owners who enjoy hiking, jogging or bike riding. He is a smart boy and if he's bored, he will find something to do. Although Malinois are typically working, sport or police dogs, Vegas is not a candidate for this line of work. Vegas does not have ball drive or tug drive but he does love a Nylabone or a chew.

Vegas is an active boy who is just jazzed to be alive. He loves people and other dogs, so much he is getting some help from his foster mom, who is a dog trainer, to learn what personal space is. He is being taught that all four paws belong on the ground and jumping up to give kisses isn't always appropriate. He is crate trained and learning "place", or a go to your bed command which has helped him settle down in the home. He is also learning not to pull on a leash or walk up and greet every dog and person he sees. Vegas is fostered on a 40 acre ranch and does amazing off leash with his foster mom and the other foster dogs. He recalls to his name and enjoys off leash walks around the property. He loves accompanying his foster mom while gardening or doing ranch chores.

Vegas would do best in a home with an active family, older children as he can be very jumpy and exuberant and may knock small kids over and someone who will continue proper socialization and boundaries.

It is unknown how Vegas does with cats and small critters.

This is a Level 3 Dog. Please be sure you understand what a dog of this Level requires.
