Meet Frunza

Belgian Shepherd Dog Malinois & Border Collie, 5 years old

🏠 Suburbs dog
🍷 Lives with adults only
Frunza was adopted!

She came from Amicii Dog Rescue .

My favourite thing about Frunza is...

She has an adorable, kind nature and always looks after her humans. She protects and barks even when she's scared to death just to make sure mum and dad are ok. She has her own will and will tell you exactly what she wants when she wants it. Her character has blossomed from a severely traumatised pup with PTSD who witnessed the worst on the streets of Romania. I'm proud of my girl.

The biggest challenge with Frunza is...

Frunza still suffers occasional bouts of stress and trauma response. She is suspicious if other dogs and doesn't get on well with them. She has difficulties controlling her stress (good or bad). So if she fears you she goes into protection mode and if she likes you she may just knock you down and sit on you, licking you As she is a big black dog, that scares a lot of people. She also still has he

The most surprising thing about owning a Belgian Shepherd Dog Malinois & Border Collie is...

I am amazed at Frunza's intelligence. When she arrived, she'd never been in a human home before. We showed her some things, but she has worked out lots on her own. She rattles the door keys to go out. She responds to certain questions by nodding for yes and shaking her head for no. She goes pee in the yard over the drain... Most dog games bore her cause they're too easy for her.

What I wish I’d known about Belgian Shepherd Dog Malinoiss & Border Collies is...

The mix of shepherd dog and collie is explosive. All of the guarding and herding traits are amplified. It's like living with a guard dog on steroids. Nothing gets past these dogs. Their hearing, smell and extrasensory perception are super developed Frunza hears a pin drop (or fridge open) from hundreds of yards away She also senses if people have good or bad intentions and is always right.
