Malcolm Junior is a blond, stocky boy with the loveliest big head and the warmest golden eyes and the softest fur and a wonderful pink nose.
Malcom Junior ("Junior") is a sweet, quiet, well-behaved gentleman. The look in his eyes is of pure love and trust. Junior needs a plenty of exercise, a fenced-in yard, and another dog to play with. He will also need a gradual introduction to a new dog and a gradual transition to a new home.<p>After taking trainer Jane Marshall's K9 Manners class at Cheery Dogs, here's what she wrote on her Facebook page: "The gorgeous Junior, an IAR foster dog, completes K9 Manners with honors. He is available for adoption, and you would be lucky to get this chunky sweetheart!"<p>

<br><p>Junior is housetrained and no longer needs to be crated. He loves to go for walks, although he needs more leash training. He adores riding in the car! Junior knows basic commands, and comes when you whistle. Very attached to the people in his life, he is super-friendly and loves to be petted and loved. Junior is happiest when he is in someone's arms being cuddled or resting his big head in their lap.
Malcolm Junior is perfectly healthy, neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations, and heartworm negative.
Malcolm Junior was found as a stray in a rural county running along the road. His rescuer pulled over to make sure he was OK, and he jumped in the car and made himself immediately at home with her!
IAR subsidizes post-adoption professional training with Jane Marshall (www.cheerydogs.com) to encourage a life-long and successful bond between the dog and the adopter. Group classes for puppies and adult dogs are provided at a substantial discount to IAR adopters.
