History - Mally was a street dog in Romania before being taken in by a shelter where he was confined to a small, dark and dirty pen. Fortunately, he was discovered by IDR and has been at Oakwood Dog Rescue since August 2017.

Mally is a lovely boy and can be very affectionate once he gets to know you. He can be nervous with new people and new situations so you need to take things slowly with him.
He walks really nicely on the lead and is generally friendly towards other dogs although can sometimes get scared.

Adoption Fee - £200

Free Training - 4 weeks
