In shelter Dog

Maryville, Blount County, Tennessee, ...
Pet name:
Boxer, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Mixed
Black with White
Coat length:
Maliboo is a medium/large (50 lbs), five year old, Boxer/Staffordshire mix. Maliboo has been placed and returned and abandoned by many different people in his lifetime and has suffered deeply because of it. He is now finally back on his feet and feeling better with his fosters and ready to finally be placed with his perfect people.
He has a very hard time trusting other dogs and should be the only pet in the house because of the unfortunate situations he has been put in. Being left alone with other dogs that are not dog-friendly has traumatized him and he gets defensive pretty quickly. He has a very low prey drive and while he loves to zoom around when he gets excited, he will not be chasing anyone’s cats any time soon! Because of Maliboo’s hard time trusting other animals, we’re thinking a home with much older kids or no kids at all would be best.
He has picked up some peculiar behaviors in all the interesting situations he’s been in, including being very vocal when he feels a little zoomey! He grunts and howls and talks and gallops all over the place! Seeing him express himself in silly ways has been such a relief for his fosters after seeing him depressed for so long. We would love to see him loved and happy in his new home.
