LITTER: GERARD is part of the "MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE" litter

AGE/GENDER: Born 8/05/2022, Male

WEIGHT: 50ish lbs and growing
HOUSE TRAINING: He's working on it still and doing great, but he can get a little excited.
CRATE TRAINING: Good, he is crate trained.
OTHER DOGS: Good. He will need continued socialization. He has a dominant-type personality. He lives with dogs of all ages and sizes.
CATS: No cats as he has a strong prey drive.
CHILDREN: Dog-respectful children, 12 and older - he is a maligator after all
HEALTH: GERARD is doing well, but he came to us as a puppy who could not walk and was hospitalized for pyothorax as a young puppy. He has stunted growth and may not have the endurance of a typical healthy Malinois. He is altered, microchipped, flea treated, and dewormed. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as transportation and general care costs.

HISTORY: Gerard Way came from a backyard breeder in Yakima. He was unable to walk when he originally came to us. We worked with him and got him stronger and able to walk only to have tragedy strike as he succumbed to a lung infection. After emergent care and surgery, where it was touch and go, our miracle Malinois defied the odds.

NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME: GERARD WAY is a Malinois, which is a working breed of dog. These dogs need to be worked, mentally. They need a job. They are not a dog for a first-time dog owner. You cannot compare Malinois to a German Shepherd. Gerard requires an adopter with power breed experience. Someone who has worked with and trained power breed dogs. He would appreciate another dog playmate in the home. Gerard, while sometimes naughty, loves to train and will need an adopter who has training experience and someone who enjoys training and working with their dog. Gerard is a typical Maligator and is very mouthy, which is why he needs a home with older children. He is not a protection dog, as he is highly socialized to people due to his lengthy hospitalization and frequent vet care. Gerard is a lover and while he can be pushy he is dog and people social.

All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and either a Martingale collar or a harness, depending on each dog's particular needs.

Welcome to Motley Zoo Animal Rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization that is run entirely by volunteers. Motley Zoo does not have a brick and mortar shelter location. Instead, all our rescue animals are cared for in private foster homes where the animals receive one-on-one care and attention in a home environment until permanent placement is found. Please email and request an adoption application and we will work toward approving you as an adopter with our rescue so that we can set a time for you to meet!
