Timber is a stunning boy who had been on the run in Pierce County before he was taken into a local shelter. He is currently recovering from a leg injury but we suspect he will be back to his old self in no time. As a tall and lanky guy he is enjoying his regular meals and would like to put on some weight.

Timber warms up to humans quickly and is a friendly boy! He enjoys getting pats and looks forward to finding a family to call his own. With his trim athletic frame he may be a great running partner after his leg has healed. He is a classic outdoorsy dog who will appreciate a consistent home life. We will provide more updates once we spend more time with him.

If you are interested in Shadow please fill out an online application and we will schedule your home visit ASAP.

Shadow is a striking snow-colored boy looking for an experienced home to help him reach his full potential. As a young impressionable 2-year-old he spent some time on the street but despite his challenging beginning he is well-socialized and friendly with people and loves coming in close for the Malamute lean.

He is an all-white Mal-mix who loves getting out for walks and does really well on them until he decides it is time to break out with jumps and mouthiness. It is all done in the spirit of play but he is a big boy who needs to learn consistent manners and some self-control. During these episodes when asked he will calmly sit and compose himself hoping for a delicious treat. He takes them very gently and is extremely appreciative. He will need a family experienced and comfortable with young big dogs who will thoroughly and consistently support his continued training. He is a loving guy with much to offer and will benefit greatly from a supportive family. And he is very treat motivated which will help with training. On walks he has demonstrated a powerful prey drive so a home with no other furry creatures is recommended. He may enjoy and benefit from the company of another dog.

The adoption fee of $300 includes spay-neuter and all vaccines.

If you are interested in Blue please fill out an online application and we will schedule your home visit ASAP.

Blue is a fun-loving small Mal-mix with some Siberian Husky thrown in for good measure judging by his one parti-eye. He enjoys getting out for walks and would love other adventures too. He is a friendly guy who appreciates every human he meets and we suspect he may like other dogs as long as they play nice and are relatively calm characters.

He knows how to sit and would love to work on his training a bit. Blue does like to launch some surprise jumps on people and some occasional mouthiness so he is working on his manners to keep four on the floor. Evidence of a prey drive is in his history so recommend no chickens or cat siblings for this guy. Blue is a smart curious and alert guy who will also need an experienced and patient family to help him to transition from his desire to be a little too protective of his food and water as well.

Blue would thrive with more consistency in his life and looks forward to meeting his new family soon and sharing time together.

The adoption fee of $300 includes spay-neuter and all vaccines.

Blue is being lovingly cared for in Washington while he awaits his new forever home.

If you are interested in Crowley please fill out an online application and we will schedule your home visit ASAP.

Crowley is a handsome oversized love bug who enjoys meeting new people and showing how much he cares. He is a young energetic boy who is looking for a home with structure guidance and a big dog savvy family who can harness his enthusiasm for life and help him grow into all his potential. Given his youthful exuberance he will need a home without young children and no small animals of any sort. He needs a securely fenced yard and be leashed when he is out of the house. In addition to being a traditional snow dog he is also a bonus water dog. Put him on a long lead and he enjoys going for a swim! Due to his succession of homes where he was not getting proper guidance he has developed separation anxiety and struggles with alone time. He may do well in a home with a large adult dog who is willing to serve as a mentor to him. Crowley is bright and eager for more training to build on what he already knows. He loves car rides and getting out into the great outdoors.

The adoption fee of $300 includes neuter and all vaccines.

Crowley is being lovingly cared for in Washington while he awaits his new forever home.

* SECURELY FENCED YARD REQUIRED * NO SMALL DOGS * NO CATS

If you are interested in Sashka please fill out an online application and we will schedule your home visit ASAP.

Sashka is a sweet and gentle gal who loves people and snuggles. She is an energetic 10-year-old whose owner could no longer afford to take care of her so she is now looking for a caring home where she can enjoy being part of family.

She is more on the independent side and does not beg for attention but enjoys meeting folks and is content just to hang around folks as they go about daily activities. She is very choosy about her dog friends and as we have gotten to know her it is clear she needs to be an only dog. Sashka looks forward to improving her diet so she can gain a little weight and make her coat and skin healthier. She does have a little weakness in her right hindquarter so while she cannot leap up into a car herself she is happy to get a boost.

Sashka walks well on a leash and while she did not grow up learning commands she is polite and easy going and would like to learn some new stuff with her new family. And she hopes to meet them soon!

Sashka is a senior and qualifies for the Golden Paw fee of $200 and includes spay-neuter and all vaccines.

Sashka is being lovingly cared for in Washington while she awaits her new forever home.

SPONSORED!

Hannah has been lovingly sponsored by Jill and Hachi!

NO CATS * SECURE FENCING REQUIRED * NO SMALL DOGS

If you are interested in Hannah please fill out an online application and we will schedule your home visit ASAP.

Hannah is a California girl who found herself homeless and fortunately jumped aboard a Wings of Rescue flight headed to Idaho. Through west coast connections the Humane Society in Idaho got in touch with WAMAL to see if we could help her find her forever home. She is a beautiful girl with a white gray and silver coat. She prefers to be low maintenance on the grooming front but we are working with her on that. Hannah loves people and enjoys running in the yard chasing balls and sharing kisses. Rain and mud do not slow her down and shes a true all-weather gal who was happy to trade the SoCal sunshine for the PNW.

She loves getting out for walks and is learning a great heel command and walks well on the leash. Currently she prefers not to wear a harness as that is an accessory she did not grow up wearing. She does get periodic power boosts where she likes to ramp up her speed but she is responsive to commands and is quite eager to do the right thing for treats.

Due to her time as a stray she picked up some resource guarding behaviors as a method of survival and volunteers are working with her on that. Hannah is friendly girl who will need a malamute-experienced adult family to help her continue her development and a place where she can soak up all the attention as an only dog.

The adoption fee of $300 includes spay and all vaccines.

Hannah is being lovingly cared for in Washington while she awaits her new forever home.

* SECURELY FENCED YARD REQUIRED * NO SMALL DOGS * NO CATS

If you are interested in Koa please fill out an online application and we will schedule your home visit ASAP.

Koa is a friendly energetic two-year-old male who likes to be large and in-charge but also appreciates a good cuddle. Given he has grown to be a force of nature his current family realizes he needs a home where he will get a lot more exercise adventure and guidance to be the best boy he can be. He loves dogs of all sizes but is not a fan of cats or feathered creatures. Given his powerhouse physique dog friends of similar size may be best.

He will be a great companion to a family experienced with dogs who like to push boundaries and have alpha moments. Koa is young and is hoping to get more coaching to be a good pack member. He is an excellent leash walker and really loves to go go go so he will need an active family. He knows sit stay and lay down but would like to learn more. While Koa does appreciate a snuggle with his people he also likes his own space and is selective about where he likes people to pet him. He also loves snow but hates water so he prefers to groom himself.

If you are a strong pack leader Koa would like to meet you as he is excited about his future potential with a new active adult-only family.

The adoption fee of $300 includes spay-neuter and all vaccines.

Koa is being lovingly cared for in Oregon while he awaits his new forever home.

With her black and white wooly coat and distinctive markings Mali is a striking mal gal who would like to be a part of a family and experience a good home life.

TIKO
Age: Adult
Weight: 95 Lbs
Gender: Male
Color: Black/White
ID: O05-0118-AM5



COURTESY LISTING

Tiko is being lovingly cared for in Bend Oregon with Friends of Denali Sanctuary for Seniors. For more information about adopting Tiko please contact April at april_llane at yahoo.com

Tiko is a striking confident boy who hails from Southern California but was sadly abandoned by his family and he is now in the care of a rescue. He has classic malamute looks and disposition and will need a strong pack leader. He is an alpha type of guy but has a heart of gold is affectionate and loves people. He may prefer people in his pack rather than other dogs so we suspect he will need to be an only dog and soak up all the attention. But his interest in and tolerance of other big dogs should be evaluated further. He is very fit and would love to have outdoor adventures and join an active family. He has not had a lot of leash training so is a strong puller so for anyone needing a tow up the trail he is your guy. Tiko enjoys car rides and hops right in.

He is two thumbs up Tiko as everyone who meets him thinks he is a great malamute and will make a great family companion.

IMPORTANT-Please note:

Tiko is being listed as a courtesy. WAMAL has not evaluated this dog in person and any information we have listed here is information provided by the current rescue. WAMAL cannot guarantee this information or take responsibility for any inaccurate information posted in this listing.

COURTESY LISTING

VERY URGENT - NEEDS A PERMANENT HOME RIGHT NOW!!!!

PORTLAND OR

Gorgeous Gigi was originally acquired as a Native American Indian Dog who are known to be a mix of Husky/Malamute/German Shepherd and sometimes Samoyed. Gigi had knee surgery in November and is healing nicely with the tremendous help of her Foster Mom. Gigi is a real sweetheart but her Foster Mom is unable to handle this strong girl now that she is feeling better so Gigi needs to go into her permanent home right away. Gigi is 6 years old and is very playful so needs a forever home with someone who will take her out for short walks every day - but not too strenuous as to compromise her knees. Gigi weights about 95 and is still a bit overweight. She will need an experienced handler to teach her not to pull but she does respond well to simple corrections and is not pulling as much these days.

A very sweet girl Gigi is friendly with little dogs big dogs cats people good off leash and loves everyone. She is a sweet and easy girl to have around. She lived with a very tiny doggie who she was very gentle with as well as another large male pup. We would like to place her into a calm household as Gigi will not be able to rough play with another dog anymore but a home with nice walks and good companionship would be awesome for her as she loves other dogs.

You can contact Pamela Jo ASAP if you are interested. Email her at PamelaJoWolflady2 at sbcglobal.net r call 775-833-2066. Transportation help is available.

IMPORTANT-Please note: Gigi is being listed as a courtesy. WAMAL has not evaluated this dog in person and any information we have listed here is information provided by the current rescue.

If you are interested in Atlas please fill out an online application and we will schedule your home visit ASAP.

In this corner weighing in at 120 pounds is the gentle giant known as Atlas. Want to give a belly rub? He is your boy! This calm and respectful big boy grew up with kids in the house and loves all humans. His family had raised him since a puppy but given that they also had a pack of small dogs they decided he would be happier in an environment without little yappy creatures.

He is a fit and active guy who is used to four to five mile runs but he likely would enjoy a life of walks and hikes in addition to all the attention from humans of all sizes that he craves. For dog friends pups in the extra large bracket are likely best.

The adoption fee of $300 includes spay-neuter and all vaccines.

Atlas is being lovingly cared for in Oregon while he awaits his new forever home.
