Male Malinois mix, 3years, neutered, looking for a forever home. Trooper needs someone to commit to him and is being rehomed because his former owners could not keep him due to no fault of his own. He has basic obedience (heel, sit, down, climb, stay, no, name recognition, shake) and is very social with other dogs. He's a great dog and easy! Trooper is also a little guy and only weighs 50lb, but he is healthy.

Trooper is good with children, loves to cuddle and is a very low drive. He is NOT suitable for a working home: he is a pet dog. He will bark at men, but has shown improvement and will warm up within minutes.
Trooper has never bitten and is submissive by nature. He needs a balanced handler who will be fair with him. Coddling behavior from a handler will not suit him, nor will someone who lacks patience or is heavy handed. He thrives with a little training and exercise every day. He will NOT thrive being overly sedentary or living in a crate. He is not well-suited for a working dog lifestyle either.
Trooper travels well and has a gut of steel. He is crate trained and quiet. Aside from a little training and exercise, Trooper is a pretty low maintenance boy and very goofy :) He has a sense of humor and loves spending time outside running, walking, exploring and sniffing things. He also likes to chew, but is not destructive in the house.
Please adopt Trooper. He needs a last stop and best friend for life. There will be a small rehome fee.
