Sweet Belle is ready for adoption! She is 2.5 yrs old, currently in Tennessee. She is the sweetest girl ever and would be suitable for a first time Malinois owner. She is very affectionate, and while she is an active girl that loves to run, she does not have much drive. She does not have too much interest in toys, although she likes to play with the other Malnois in the house. She will play hard, so no small dogs. She does have prey drive though, so no cats, and it’s preferred that she goes to a home with a fenced in yard since she will chase small critters and go visiting around the neighborhood. No underground fences, she will run right through these.
Belle is super lovable and kind and loves all people of all sizes. She loves to snuggle and would crawl in your skin if she could--she just wants to be close to you! She can be placed with savvy children depending on the experience of a potential adopter.
Belle has wonderful manners. She doesn't jump up or beg at the table, she doesn't mind a bath, she loves to swim casually, she always releases a toy when asked. She does pull a bit on lead and loves to go for walks and runs. She sleeps very good at night and loves to be under the covers, she's very gentle both in spirit and physically. She is very shy, with a submissive personality, and looks to the other dogs in the pack and her people for direction and confidence. She will need someone to give her time to feel comfortable in a new home and to bond to her new people. She is good in public too and rides well in a car. She just wants to be where her people are!
Belle does not like her crate too much, but is not destructive when left in the house. She would appreciate a home where someone is home more often.
Belle sounds like an amazing dog that will be an amazing active companion for the perfect family!
