Cane Corso Rescue would like to welcome Mala into the family! What could this precious female have done to deserve being dumped at a kill shelter? Her owners response, “I’m done breeding her.”
Mala is approximately 3 years old & very mellow. She easily went to her foster dad to take the 4 hour road trip out of the shelter. From there on, Mala has had a serious crush on that big guy! Currently, she is being fostered with 2 other dogs (a dominant, 9 yr old Cane Corso/Boxer female & a stocky, 3 yr old male pittie) & a 1 year old human. Mala is easy going with both dogs, but playful with the male pup. Our older female is not into playing & likes to be the boss; Mala is not a push over, but she does not challenge at all & is dismissive of any signs of dominance. When it comes to being around the human child, she is not at all rattled or reactive by typical toddler antics. Our son can walk around her, touch her, drop toys near by, eat with no reaction from Mala. Due to her size, I would only recommend a family with small children if the adoptive family has breed experience.
Mala is very easy on leash & enjoys walking. She walks well alone, next to the stroller & with the other dogs. She pays no mind to passing dogs or barking dogs behind fences. Her ears do perk up a bit & she watches the neighborhood cats, but does not react to them. Based on her overall personality, I would bet she would be okay with cats, but will do more testing. She is food motivated, but we haven’t noticed any food aggression issues (though haven’t done much testing yet). She doesn’t beg for food or take food off of low tables.
This girl is very much a family dog. She loves to be near people! She would prefer to be on the couch, but we are breaking that habit. While she easily goes into her kennel when asked, she does not like to be left in there & she will break out of an unenforced kennel. This is a smart, strong girl! We are starting to work on basic commands like sit & down which I know she’ll pick up quickly!
Mala would be most comfortable in a forever home that has other dogs as she meshes well in a pack. Family should be moderately active (willing to take her on daily walks) & while she can be left home alone, someone with a long work day may be a little tough on her. This girl summed up: laid back & easy going. Currently, snoring at my feet in the office while I type this up.
Mala is currently being fostered in Florida. She is current on vaccinations, has been spayed and microchipped. She is also current on preventative care for heartworms, fleas, and ticks!
