Razor is a little chunky right now, but he's actually a pretty petite male malinois normally. He's friendly and likes people- he can be a little aloof when you first meet him but he is normally your best friend by about 3 minutes into the greeting. He likes to "smile" when he meets new people...which is freakin' adorable LOL
Razor is good w/other dogs and likes playing. He's lived w/MANY other dogs in foster care and a Dutch Shepherd in his adoptive home. He likes to WWF style play, so bigger canine buddies may be better, but he has been taught a few lessons by smaller dogs in foster care- so he knows to respect them too. Razor lived w/children under 10 in his home and was good w/them, HOWEVER, his home was a police officer who is a K9 decoy and he already owned a Dutch Shepherd, SOOO, his children were very dog savvy. Given that, we think he'd do best w/kids ages 12+. Razor, despite being small, is a typical malinois- he likes to use his mouth and tug on things. He can also be quite sassy when he feels like it and that could be a bit much for smaller kids.
Razor has had very basic obedience training. He knows basic commands and is good w/his house and crate training. He has dabbled in IPO and dock diving and could easily go to a home who wanted to play those games w/him. He'd also love just about anything you wanted to do I think, from agility to obedience, etc. I think he'd be a great "first time" malinois for a sport home. He is NOT a working/detection candidate. He's a nice size, and has typical breed traits but isn't over-the-top demanding or high drive. He would be a great learning partner. While previous malinois experience isn't required we do want him to go a sport/performance home. His brother is a great agility dog (working on his MACH) and his sister is a fantastic nosework and dock diving dog - so the potential is there!
