Malou, applications currently closed

Malou is our lovely dutch herder cross who is now ready to go to a home. We think she is about 2 years old and she is very affectionate, absolutely loving to spend time with humans. As she is very clean in her kennel overnight we think she may be already house trained, or will need very little training in this area. She is a lively, intelligent, active girl, who loves her walks and walks very well on the lead. She also loves to play ball and chase a stick, which are both good ways to tire her out after as well as giving her a long walk. She does not like to be left outside, and will not suit a home where someone likes to leave a dog outside as they pop out to the shop as she gets distressed and tries to follow you (she can jump out from very high surrounds). She also loves her comforts and is very happy to spend time in our kitchen on the couch or a soft bed when our volunteers are taking their breaks, or when they take her inside for some special time alone with them. Her ideal family should have experience of large breed dogs, and should be prepared to give her some training , but also show her plenty of patience as she settles into her new home. She should go to a home where someone is available for a lot of the day to spend time with her, therefore will not suit a home where everyone is working long hours. She would prefer not to share her home with another dog or a cat. Also we would prefer her home to have no children under the age of 14 years as she is a bouncy girl. As she falls under the category of restricted breed she will need to be muzzled in public places and should not be walked by anyone under the age of 16 who is not accompanied by an adult. Malou is vaccinated, spayed and chipped (chip number 972274200175994, origin Ireland).
