Shepherd / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat) : : Female (spayed) : : Young : : Medium
Cutie is a Shepherd mix. She is a wonderful dog. High energy loves to play ball. She lives with 4 pit bulls and very old Shiba Inu. We are working on walking on the leash. She does well in public. She needs someone who wants to stay busy. This dog is not a couch potatoe, she would love to go for long walks and hikes. If you are a jogger this is your partner. She is a very loving dog and will give kisses if you throw the ball.
We tested Cutie with cats she jumped up and gave the kitty a bunch of kisses. Silly dog.

CUTIE IS NOT A SHEPHARD, she is a BELGIUM MALINOIS.
BACKGROUND ON THE BREED:
The Belgian Malinois is one of four Belgian sheepdogs. A very bright and obedient dog, it is determined and observant with strong protective and territorial instincts. Socialize well to prevent it from becoming shy or sensitive. The Belgian Malinois needs an experienced master who is firm, but not heavy handed. If you are harsh or overbearing it will become uncooperative. Owners need to display a confident, natural authority over the dog. Consistent rules must be set and made clear. This breed is instinctively protective so it should be trained and socialized very well from an early age. Puppies should be socialized right from birth. Good for working and competition obedience, these dogs make excellent police and guard dogs. This type of work is currently their main occupation. They do however, make excellent pets if they have owners who can challenge their minds with an air of leadership. They are ever watchful, alert and loyal. The Belgian Malinois is good with children if socialized well with them. This breed needs to be part of the family and not locked up in a kennel. They need leadership, daily exercise along with training and companionship, for without it they may become destructive and hard to handle. The Belgian Malinois is high energy, with a high mental capacity, and is quick to comprehend. It needs a job to do. The Belgian Malinois may instinctively display herding behavior such as chasing and circling, moving effortlessly for hours and nipping at people's heels. They must be taught not to do this to people. This is a very demanding dog. It needs an experienced owner for it can easily be difficult to control unless the owner knows how to handle him. The way the owner handles the dog can produce wide differences in temperament and aggressiveness.
This little sweetie was taken into our rescue to avoid having to turn her into the local animal shelter. She is the sweetest girl, loves giving kisses and is a total snuggle baby.
