Malia‘s Story

💙Malia is Available💙

Hello, I'm Malia, a 10-month-old Bernedoodle with a heart as big as can be. My foster dad affectionately calls me "noodles" because I'm still figuring out what to do with my body. You might catch me sleeping with my legs on the couch and my front legs on the floor – I may look like an Ugg boot, but rest assured, I'm all dog. This Christmas, I'm picking up extra holiday shifts playing a baby lamb in nativity scenes.

With my beautiful apricot ears, it's clear that I'm a puppy full of energy. I get super excited when you return from taking out the trash or grabbing the mail, and I adore cuddles and playtime. Ideally, my forever family has a brother or sister for me to play with, as I have more energy than I know what to do with. Sometimes, I like to spazz out with my noodle legs until I'm tired. I love chasing my tail and prefer not to be outside alone for too long – leave me too long, and I might find my way in, maybe even through a window.

My foster dad works from home, and it would be great if my forever family does too because I get super anxious when left alone for too long. Our routine usually starts around 8 am with coffee and breakfast, heading to work around 10. I go along and have a touch of separation anxiety, but I have another dog friend to play with during the day. Saturdays are filled with outdoor play, while Sundays are for laid-back lounging.

Potty training is nearly there, though leash training has been a bit challenging. On the bright side, I've mastered sitting faster than any dog my foster dad has ever seen.
