Malachi is a happy, energetic and often vocal little guy that was picked up as a stray at a county shelter. When no owner came forward to claim him after 6 days, we had one of our wonderful volunteers go pick him up and spare him the fate that so many strays face when there 'time is up.' Malachi weighs 15 lbs and is a great size to accompany you on outings. While we don't know if he is house-trained, he can hold it for quite a long time! Malachi has great leash manners and loves his walks. He seems to do well with other similar-sized dogs as well as children and canine-friendly cats. What Malachi doesn't do well with is being left alone. Poor little guy hates being by himself and will vocalize his unhappiness. If you live in an apartment or condo and/or are gone from home for long stretches at a time, Malachi wouldn't be very happy and would make sure anyone within hearing distance knew it. On the other hand, if you're home most of the time, can take your dog to work with you or want a dog that's a great size to accompany you on outings, then Malachi would love to meet you! If you have been looking for a small dog with a big personality to share your life for the next dozen or more years, make sure you stop by our shelter and ask to spend some time with this personable little fella!
