ZincZinc Head

Zinc is an 8-9 month old Belgian Malinois mix, he came into our rescue from a Modesto shelter, so nothing is known about his background. What we do know, is that he is a bundle of fun! This little guy (weighing approx. 40lbs currently) not only loves to play tug, play with the dogs living in his foster home, and play ball, but he also loves a good snuggle at the end of the day!

Still very much a puppy, Zinc is working on his house manners. He sleeps nicely in a crate at night and walks very well on leash. He plays well with most dogs, however would not do well with a dominant male in the home as he tends to try to establish a little bit of dominance. He has your typical Malinois personality, he is active, very smart, and eager to please.

This is a dog you could do any kind of sport with, he would excel being given a job to do! Although he does not seem to have an off switch, he will settle down nicely in the evenings and is more than happy to lay next to you and get lots of love!

If you are looking for an active running partner, a fun dog to train, and an all around cool dog to have around, Zinc is a good pick for you! He would do well in a home with older children as he can be quite snappy when he plays, as is true of the breed and his age. He would be ok with cats as there are 2 cats in his foster home, he does like to chase them every so often but we are working on correcting that.

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