Sanctuary Notes on Malakai: Malakai is a beautiful big headed boy who has shown from the beginning that he has reacted differently to being under-socialized than the others in his group. Malakai seems to be the beta of his family group, and would put himself in time out when unsure, rather than run away with the others. In the first week, I could approach this sad sweet boy and pet him and he would stay in his corner, even when the others were running from us and barking out of fear. He was very submissive and seemed to have shut down during his time in the shelter in which all the dogs were separated from each other. He would let the others eat his bowl of food and seemed to have given up. We now have worked out a routine where they have indoor/outdoor access all day and sleep inside at night and he will now go inside and out when asked and is more interactive with his group. He has put on weight and has come more out of his shell. Even though he still needs quite a bit of help building his confidence, Malakai seems to be a rock for his brother Leo who is the most fearful of the group, who will allow himself to be pet only if he is sitting on top of Malakai (which he never objects to even if Leo is sitting directly on his head). We can pet, brush and kiss Malakai with no objections, but we would LOVE a foster (or adoptive) home for him where he can settle in and feel more safe and secure, as our goal is for him to actually approach people for love, rather than allow it quietly and hope for the best, breathing a sigh of relief when it is over and no harm has come to him. Group notes: Milo took in seven beautiful yet under-socialized Pyrenees that had been seized from a hoarding situation, but were then set for euthanasia due to lack of space at the shelter. We have been working with them to gain their trust as they were not raised as family members, and some are making great strides. Because of this, they are looking for very patient, understanding and rurThis is the Animal Description Footer
