CharlizeCharlize Head

Charlize is a high-energy 18 month old with a soft coat and weighs just under 70 lbs. Her coloring suggests she is mixed with a Belgian Malinois. She was an owner surrender to a Sacramento area shelter.

Her previous home indicated she lived with children and a cat, although she has not been cat tested in our group. She has not had any accidents in her foster home, although she is not give the opportunity to be inside for much time alone. Once Charlize has bonded with her human, she is very friendly and loves human attention. There are 4 dogs in her foster home and she gets along with all of them, even a small 35 lb dog, although she plays very rough and can get pushy with the other dogs. Charlize should be supervised with other dogs smaller than her to be sure they won't be harmed by her rough play.

If you have a pool, Charlize will be a happy girl and wet most of the time. She loves the water. Charlize walks well on a leash, but will try to walk ahead until corrected then settles in nicely for the walk. If she has had enough exercise, she will settle down in the house. This girl knows the sit & down command, but responds best if coaxed with a treat. She certainly needs more training and socialization to become the best dog she can be. She sleeps in her crate without a sound and rides in a car well.

This is a Level 2 Dog
