Breed: Belgian Malinois
Estimated Birthdate: 8/14/2020
We know there are some Belgian Malinois lovers in our group and this handsome boy will not disappoint! Jack is all Malinois all the time. Everything you’d want and need in the breed you will find in Jack. He’s driven, playful, determined, intelligent and has the all day energy active households are looking for. A true Malinois!
This breed is often found in the shelter system as people purchase them without doing the appropriate research on the breed. They absolutely need a strong handler and a job. They are not a good dog for first time adopters or those with limited dog knowledge. They do not make good backyard dogs and will get into all sorts of mischief if not properly stimulated daily.
Jack has energy for days! He loves to play and has a rough and rowdy play style not all dogs will enjoy. Dog introductions will be a must for this handsome guy to ensure everyone is compatible. Malinois are known for their prey drive so no small furry friends. This includes small dogs and cats. If you like the active pups and need a dog that can keep up no matter what’s thrown his way apply to make Jack part of your family.
Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook
Each pet will have its own profile here on the website
All pets will be spayed or neutered
All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date
Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)
It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.
We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.
It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.
If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.
Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.
If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
