is a 55-lb, 11-mos old (born 7-27-20) intact female GSD/Belgian Malinois/???
who is energetic, happy and eager to please. She adores attention and being
handled. Pinot's mother is a GSD mix and her father a Belgian Malinois/GSD.
Pinot is friendly with strangers when properly introduced but is quite
protective otherwise. She has had limited contact with young children but
has done well with those that she has met.
Pinot wants to play with some dogs but will chase and challenge others. She
gets along great w/ her female littermate GSD. She is NOT good with small
Pinot is also NOT good with cats.
Pinot is fully housetrained and will even pee on command when outside. Her
person (Diedre) presently keeps her in a crate if she’s gone for more than
an hour. Pinot also sleeps in her crate.
Diedre has spent considerable time training Pinot. Pinot responds to
multiple commands, including “sit, stay, wait, be still, get in, look at me,
where's the toy?, bring it, give it up, and lie down. Diedre makes Pinot sit
and wait when she goes through doors and before she lets her into her car. (Click
here for a video of Pinot & her mother obeying Deidre's commands.) Pinot
must also sit patiently before receiving a treat. Pinot is very
food-motivated so training her is not difficult.
Pinot has not spent much time on leash, so it’s hard to say how her
leash-walking skills are. Off-leash, she has fairly good recall.
Pinot rides well In a vehicle. She loves to play fetch.
Diedre purchased Pinot from a private party when Pinot was eight weeks old.
She is now seeking a home for Pinot because she has a degenerative bone
disease and is not able to handle two young GSDs.
Because Pinot has yet to be spayed,
GSRSV and Diedre are requiring Pinot’s adopter to pay Diedre a $300 spay
deposit. This deposit will be refunded as long as Pinot is spayed
within sixty days of adoption.
Pinot is located in Magalia, in the Buttes east of Chico.
