Mr. Malagator is a 10-week-old Belgian Malinois. As you can see from his photos he is an extremely handsome young boy. Already very athletic and adventurous. He is crate trained and sleeps well in his crate all night.

Gator is smart and has already learned to sit on command. He is also quite confident and a feisty guy. He will need a home that will provide the high level of exercise these guys need. Running, hiking, flyball, or agility training would certainly be something these dogs loved to be involved with.

He is working on house breaking and has done quite well so far. This is a great dog with unlimited potential. Even Santa thought he was pretty amazing!

Cats and small critters unknown.

Additional Adoption Information

For more information and to see when this dog will be attending an Adoption Day, please see our Dogs page on our main website. ( We operate within a reasonable driving distance from the Greater Sacramento area, the Central Valley down to Merced, and Lake Tahoe. A reasonable driving distance is determined by where one of our volunteers is willing to drive within our areas of service. That means we dont adopt out of our area, to Southern California, or out of state.

Puppy Requirements

We have special Requirements for Adopting a Puppy and a separate Puppy Questionnaire that must be completed on puppies. Please see our Requirements for Adopting a Puppy ( email us at for more information.
