Malachi means angel and that could not be more true for this guy! Malachi is an extremely social guy. He adores every human and canine pal he meets. Adventures + toys + snuggles = the winning combination to his absolute best day. Malachi enjoys dining on a patio, especially if scraps get "accidentally" dropped, but also enjoys ordering Postmates in and binge watching some Netflix. He just finished binging The Office and just started Orange is the New Black, but is flexible and will let you choose whatever you want to watch. He walks beautifully on a leash and rides like a gentlemen in the car. He is 100% house trained and is crate trained and overall is a lower energy, quiet mode and could totally live in an apartment setting. Literally, this guy is an angel!
