From the Foster:

We have only had Lola for a few days, but she has been a real gem to have in our household.  She is quite the stunning looking Malinois with a personality to match. 

She does have a few basic manners already under her belt.  She will sit politely on a rug or mat near you (especially if you are cooking or have a treat).  She also knows “down”, “come” and “kennel up” but will need some further re-enforcements as she is not 100% there.  Luckily she is amazingly smart and will pick up on any skills or tricks quickly (especially if you have a treat).  She is a very loving girl and loves to give kisses.  She does a fairly good job entertaining herself with balls (dropping them to chase after where they roll) and other toys. 

Lola still has puppy energy and will need a home where her humans will regularly exercise her and provide mental stimulation, training and maybe even a “job” of sorts (agility or the like).  In general, any herding dog, especially a smart Belgian Malinois like Lola will need exercise and something to do or they get bored.  Bored has the potential of meaning naughty and barky.  This is a breed that is not meant to be a lazy lap companion.  We haven’t had a chance to give her an open space, but given how she easily follows our herding dog at home, I think she would love to run.   She gets along very well with our resident dog, but she is a herding dog and would need to be in a home without kids, or kids that are older or she may have the tendency to treat little ones as sheep to corral. 

Lola also would prefer to be in a home without shared walls.  She does not bark very often, and if she does, it’s usually in play mode with our dog or reacting to her.  However, when she barks, she has the bark of a powerful shepherd and it is loud. 

If you are looking for a beautiful running buddy or an agility partner and are willing to keep Lola stimulated, she will reward you with loyalty and lots and lots of kisses!
