Keith came to us as a young pup with the rest of his litter, and quickly proved to us that he was not like his siblings. We believe Keith is a Belgian Malinois mix, judging from his striking good looks, temperament and intelligence. He is a wonderful friendly boy with everyone he meets. He does really well with most dogs, although he does like to play a bit rough he has been taught to settle down and calm himself when asked. Before considering Keith as a new member ofthe family, please take some time to read up on his breed, the Belgian Malinois. Because he is so intelligent and has a lot of energy, he needs a family that will help keep him busy both physically and mentally. Luckily for Keith and his future family he has been, and is currently in training with one of the best trainers in Central Texas, and has learned a huge amount, and very quickly. Who ever adopts this brilliant, and beautiful boy will have to attend a six week course with him and his trainer paid for by Austin Dog Rescue.
Keith is crate trained, housebroken, walks nicely on leash, loves to play, and now knows dozens of commands, but understand that even though he knows these things, he will need lots of practice, and someone willing to help him continue to learn new things. He will need a strong and loving leader, but will return that love to you tenfold! Keith will do best in a home with parents that might work from home or have a schedule in which he can get plenty of daily enrichment and exercise.
