Kodak 3 YO Male in Arkansas - Adoption Fee $ 350

Kodak 3 YO Male

Kodak marches to the beat of a malinois drummer. Make that a malinois drummer with a passion for the offbeat! While saying a malinois needs a job has become a bit of a cliché, in Kodak’s case it is totally accurate: this boy desperately needs a job! Kodak loves to fetch, fetch, fetch. He also loves to chew, chew, chew. As a result, he has worn his teeth down, however, we promise he can still pick objects up.  

He is a very loving boy ready to be in his person's back pocket. He will work hard for praise and affection and seeks that attention with malinois intensity. He can go to a home with dogs, but probably not small dogs. Kodak is currently living with four-month-old Dutch Shepherd and a five-month-old mix that is a board and train. These young dogs tend to rev Kodak up and vice versa, so calmer or low key pack mates may be the best match.

Kodak has made great strides with leash manners, and this has been an area of focus while in foster care. More work is needed but the foundation has been laid and Kodak has proven himself to be an eager student. He sits and downs on command and will stay despite distractions. His longer down stays last about 30 minutes. He known his name and has nice recall. He crates up and rides well in the car.  

Playful with that classic malinois intensity, Kodak is ready to turn anything and everything into a toy – his food bowl included! He can develop compulsive (and ok, we admit it, annoying) play behaviors. His food bowl is removed as soon as he is finished eating because he chases it. His foster family has been working on self-control and helping him appropriately channel all his malinois lust for life. His forever family will need to continue this effort. He is the poster boy for high drive but he needs help focusing and channeling all that zest and zoom into healthy and productive behaviors.

Athletic and strong, Kodak can and will leap a four foot fence even with a deterrent. He does respect an electrified fence, and he jumps when motivated to get to his person. If supervised with his human outside with him, he doesn’t show an interest in fence acrobatics. This is a boy who struggles mightily with FOMO (that’s fear of missing out for you non-millenials) – he always wants to join the fun, wherever it may be, no matter what challenges lie in his way.  

Ball- and toy-obsessed, Kodak has the potential to be a challenge as a typical house pet. He will need patience and consistent training to leave items alone. He will grab anything that isn’t nailed down (and if a malinois can pry it up… it isn’t nailed down!) and he will chase anything with his nose. Kodak would be a great with tracking. Kodak was given a 14" plastic ball and he herded the ball nonstop all over the yard. He just doesn’t tire out at all.

If you are interested in a guy that is on the go go and who loves to follow things with his nose nose, Kodak is the gent for you.
