ADOPTED ON 02-27-16 –Malcolm is a 6 month old Beagle Mix mix. He has beautiful coloring and gorgeous, sad chocolate brown eyes. His history is unknown, but luckily he was rescued while still a puppy, and has maintained that “puppy charisma”. His rescue story would have one think that he’s had a lot to overcome, but you’d never know it. Found barely moving because he was in such poor physical shape and was likely dehydrated along with starving, a compassionate rescue hero took him home, to nurture him to health. That began our love story with Malcolm!
Malcolm is playful and loveable guy, gets along with all the dogs he shares a home with and is sweet and affectionate with all people he’s encountered. He gets very excited to see foster mom, whether it is at meal time or play time and will display his talented doggie joy twist. He will turn around and settle down in an instant and will roll over to get a belly rub every chance he gets. He enjoys taking walks and seems to be an old pro on a leash. An amazing feat for such a young pup. He is gentle when he’s around children, however, children and dogs need to be supervised, no matter the ages. This is a great puppy for a family looking for a sweet and peaceful pup who is so sharp, keen, and alert; a pleasure to work with as he returns everything that is given to him and more.
Malcolm is purity and love and anyone that meets him feels similar affection and appreciation for this dog! One can’t help but feel devoted to his laid-back personality. How a throw-away dog so lifeless can personify such beautiful and priceless love is why rescuers are so committed to doing what we do. Finding this special young puppy a forever home where he will be cherished as an incredible dog, is the motivation for us to continue spending most of our free time to this worthwhile cause. These dogs deserve all of our attention, and we are committed to our adopters and our dogs—after all we make the best matches.
Malcolm would love a big yard to run around in, water to play in, he loves kids and other dogs to play with. He would be an excellent jogging or hiking companion. He is such a very handsome boy, deep chocolate brown on top with a splash of tan and white. He has kind of sad but beautiful eyes; he will let you know if strangers, animal or a human needs to be checked out by you. He is young and has a lot to learn, but he is also sweet, beautiful, and waiting patiently for a forever home with an adoring family that will welcome him as a beloved family member. We just know he will capture the hearts of everyone with his endearing little personality!

IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT PACK LEADERS
It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in its pack, therefore, the only way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success you must be the pack leader:
- When we humans live with dogs,we become their pack
- The entire pack cooperates under asingle leader
- Lines are clearly defined andrules are set
- Dogs communicateshis displeasure with growling and eventually biting
- Humans MUST be higherup in the order than the dog.
- The humans must be the onesmaking the decisions, not the dogs.
Schedule Feeding Time – Find your dog’s schedule so that you can work with that
- Feed your dog on a regular schedule time, always within a half hour of the time
Schedule Water – Help your dog bee successful
- Keep a schedule for water, however, you should design a schedule that fits you
- Remove the water dish after the first feeding in the morning
- After the night feeding, leave water dish for two hours, then take it up
- Before your last walk for the night, put the water dish down about an hour before
- Then walk your dog 45 minutes after he has had water. There will might be days where that might be an exception for water.
Schedule Walking Time – Find your dog’s schedule, then gently move it to your schedule.
- Start by taking the dog out every two hours for two days, if he goes every two hours,
- Then take him out every three hours, for two days,
- Until you reach the time frame you need – every six hours—eight hours etc
One accident in the house, there is a urine smell that the dog detects and his instinct to continue mark where he smells urine. This is how wild dogs let other dogs know that this territory is taken and for dogs not in the pack to go elsewhere. If your dog has an accident in the house, spray the area with 3 parts vinegar and 1 part water, brush with a soft brush, put a towel on top to absorb the liquid, then take it outside where you want him to go, take it out of the bag and put it on the ground, praise your dog when he goes outside.

- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
- Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Children need to be taught how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
- No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
- Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
- Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
