I'm Athletic!No small dogs
Two year old Teton was left in a neighborhood with collar and leash attached. No tags, no chip and no identification. Teton refused to leave the area as he was convinced his family would come back for him. Signs were posted but no one came to claim him. He landed in a crowded shelter still hoping his family would show up. When his time was up, GSROC stepped in to ensure this young guy would have a better life.
Teton is a Belgian Malinois and has the classic personality, He is intelligent, energetic and has a high prey drive. Teton has energy to burn, loves to work and thrives on challenge. He must have an intelligent and committed owner to thrive. Teton likes people and gets along with most dogs. He knows basic commands, sit, down and stay. He even knows how to army crawl. He walks well on a leash and is alert to his surroundings.
Being the typical malinois, Teton will pretend not to understand his commands initially. It’s his way of testing his handlers to see just how good THEY are. Once he realizes his handlers have his number, he settles right down and does what he is asked. After all, Teton really just wants to please and excel at the job he is given.
Recently, we introduced Teton to several small dogs on different occasions. . While he was not aggressive to the small dog, he was entirely too focused on these small dogs for our liking.
