Plenty of Pets

He is house trained, crate trained and, walks well on leash. If he gets enough exercise he is well behaved inside the home, but if not exercised he gets bored and might chew things. He loves playing with other dogs of all sizes.

Malakai weighs 47.5 pounds and is neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and micro chipped. He comes with 30-days of free pet insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch. His adoption fee is $350.00.
