A cute Belgian Malinois and a German shepherd mix dog named flash, was a trained k9 dog, but she spent a lot of time on the streets before getting transported as a stray dog to the pound.
Harwinton’s animal control officer, Tom Mitchell, said that the sweet pooch has the intelligence of police dogs, she was trained and learned suspect apprehension and narcotics detection, and she was all ready to go in Texas and become a K9.
Unfortunately that law enforcement agency decided to take in another dog, and poor Flash is at the pound for two years now.
Mitchell reports: “it’s my mission to find this amazing dog a home other than the pound.” But, Flash has some habits that can make some refuse to adopt her. She is extremely protective when people she’s not aware of are near.
Flash is very well-behaved around her handler though.
“But if she doesn’t know you and you try to do something, she’s going to try and stop you.”
Mitchell loved the dog and was interested in taking her in, but he couldn’t since he lives on a small cottage, which for an animal like Flash that is active and needs space it’s not a good place to live.
Sweet dog loves kids, but the man advises to keep children away from her hyperactive self for safety purposes.
Mitchell says: “She has the potential to outsmart someone that doesn’t know what they’re doing.”
She is trained so much that can be a problem to the potential owner, now she is 3 years old is too old to work with the police department so the man is trying to find a suitable home for her.
According to Mitchell, Flash can’t work with police department now because she is “way too dominant to be considered for service work.”
Mitchell adds for the sweet canine: “She’s amazing! I wish more people would come and meet her!”
We hope lovely Flash will soon find a loving deserving home.
