Rhubarb is a sweet little pocket rocket who will always be stuck to you like Velcro! Affectionate, curious, and sweet, she can’t wait to find her perfect forever home. She has slowly come out of her shell in foster, and in a home with other large dogs and with a handler who has Malinois experience, we know she will continue to thrive!
Rhubarb is slowly learning that other dogs are not going to harm her and that playing can be fun. She has high prey drive and will require a home without small animals or young children. Rhubarb rides well in the car in her crate, loves playing with toys, and has even been known to watch the occasional nature show on television! A muzzle is required for veterinary visits. Rhubarb responds well to praise from her handler and is also highly food motivated. She only requires stern verbal correction, is fully house trained, and is working on not counter surfing when left to her own devices. She will need continued mentorship on being part of a pack if she shares her forever home with other dogs. Rhubarb is working on mastering basic obedience.
An experienced home with non-reactive large dogs would be ideal for Rhubarb. Since she is still learning how to be part of a pack and family, a patient handler is required. She is active and up for adventure and might excel in nosework or barn hunt if her family is interested. Rhubarb is just starting to come out of her shell, and she can’t wait to see what forever will bring!
