Rex 9 yr old neutered male - NJ
I wish I could explain how great a dog he is! He is sweet but not a lab!
Meet Rex, a handsome black nine-year-old neutered detection dog. He has lived in a kennel for the last few years but has adjusted to home life easily. Rex crates,well, he can't be left alone uncrated at this point as he needs to learn not to nibble on household items.
He is very fast when playing fetch as he was rewarded with balls and Kongs when working. He is learning patience and will wait for you to throw it. He has a great out, sit and down.
I have worked with Rex on a flat collar and a pinch collar, he is much better with pinch collar but with continued work he should not need it. He is a fast learner and has really adjusted to home life.
Don't let his age fool you. He can be very fast, loves to jump and run and have fun in the yard but he does settle well. He's a great guy to work with outside in the yard; he can entertain himself and keep you company at same time, without biting sticks and getting in your way. He just wants to have somebody to love him. Inside he's your typical Velcro Malinois, can you blame him? He spent years with out a human to spoil him, he worked so hard for us, let's take care of him now.
Rex needs an experienced Malinois home. Due to his highball drive he can be very fast and nippy when trying to get the ball from you. While he is much better at it I would not feel comfortable having children around .He is a hard-working, like to please, needs a program to help get him back in shape as he is a bit chubby.
I feel Rex is a great potential for doing nose work, tracking, rally obedience or barn hunts. We have had Rex with us on long car rides of nine hours plus and he does super well, he has been there, done it, seen it no problems with any enviroments, he enjoys going elevators and enjoys people and other dogs. Please consider giving this guy a new lease on life. He maybe nine years old but has a lot of life left in him and is just looking for a nice place to call his home. Rex has been treated for Lymne disease while in his foster home.
Preference will be given to homes in the Northeast. We prefer not to put this boy through a long distance transport.
