My name is Delilah. I’m a 5-year-old Belgian Malinois. 

Everyone keeps calling me stunning – haha, kind of embarrassing. But it’s not just good looks, I’ve been reminding everyone that I’m super smart too!

I’m a gentle, sweet, affectionate girl and absolutely adore being with my people. My new family should understand that even though I’m a soft girl, we Malinois dogs need plenty of time devoted to doing things with our humans. I will so enjoy new people who will keep my body and mind busy and healthy. It will be important for me to be active and to be mentally challenged. I think I would especially love to do scent work.

Something you should know about me is that I like to cuddle. You just might catch me sitting beside my people with my head in a cozy lap. I know this contradicts what most dogs of my breed like to do. My new friends say that I am a rare gem with a golden temperament. 

When I first came to stay with my foster family I was very unsure about this new place, new smells, new everything. I was so sweet and loving with everyone, but it was also very hard for me to settle down and feel comfortable. But as each day passes my fosters have seen my true spirit really start to shine! It took a whole week for them to earn a tail wag from me because I needed to build a relationship to find that confidence. I’m sure that when I find my forever family they will give me the patience and love I need to form that bond with them too.

If you are active, patient, and experienced with breeds like mine I will be an amazing addition to your family! 

I get along with other dogs and it’s likely I’ll be fine if you have a cat or two.

I am crate trained and have nice house manners although I haven’t learned many of the skills that other dogs my age already know. I’m sure to be a quick learner and will really enjoy the journey of becoming the very best that I can be. We Mals love to learn! 

While I wait for my very own family, I’ll be sharing my extraordinary foster humans (including 2 amazing kids) with three other dogs and two cats. 

If you’d like to meet me, I’ll be waiting in Sacramento.
