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

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

Red is a high energy youngster who is one handsome boy. He is super friendly with humans and loves to jump up and give kisses but he knows he needs to learn to keep four on the floor. He is curious and eager to hang out with other Malamutes in his walking group but gets a little too boisterous on the play front so will need to work on his playtime manners. Given his youth he is a strong guy and enjoys pulling but will wear himself out after a bit.

Red would like to find an active family who is on the move and will take him on all kinds of adventures. He would also like to work on his training with a family who is looking for a young dog to guide and to help grow into a great canine companion. He exhibited some resource guarding during his time in the shelter but this can be corrected in a consistent and loving environment. Given his size and boisterous nature he is best suited for an adult home or family with teen children.

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

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

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.

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.

ID: WO28-0418-AM7



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

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

Due to some family changes Carbon is looking for a new start with an adult-family or one with teen kids. He has spent his 7 years with his current family and hopes to find his forever family soon. He is a fit and active dog who loves attention from people. Cats and small critters should best keep away because he knows how to chase things down and his prey drive is strong.

With his handsome features Carbon is also a good natured guy who has a gentle and sweet personality. He even enjoys a good cuddle but like many of us he has gotten more stubborn with age. He walks well on a leash and is crate trained. Carbon gets along with most dogs he meets but if he is challenged he will stand up for himself. If you would like to meet this big gentle and sweet guy Carbon is ready!

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

BEAR
Age: Young Adult
Weight: 150 Lbs
Gender: Male
Color: Black/White
ID: WO21-0318-AM2



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

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

Big Bear is looking for a new family who has time to provide him with attention adventure and affection. Bear is a big boy at 150 lbs. and could stand to lose a few pounds so he would love a family that can provide him with a consistent walking program. He is a smart and curious boy who developed an interest in birds which is not good for feathered friends. With that in mind he would love a home with a secure yard sans turkeys and chickens and opportunities to play with his family. He has lived with other dogs and may enjoy another female doggy companion in his new home.

With the energy of a puppy he is ready for power packed play on a dime. He loves people but sometimes is a bit suspicious of men so he asks for time to warm up. True to his heritage he loves the snow but when it is hot out a dip in the water will do. Bear also enjoys a game of one sided fetch. He will go get it but will not bring it back. With his youthful exuberance and size he would enjoy more guidance and training to support his development. Can you resist a Bear hug? If not he would love to meet you.

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

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

Skye is sweet young girl who is eager to find a family who will provide the attention and care she deserves. Her grandparents have kindly taken her in to help her find her forever home. She is a sporty girl who would enjoy adventures with her family. At her past home she loved to explore on her own and could easily jump a four foot fence so a secured yard is a must!

This one-year-old is excited to meet new people but is likely best in an adult home or one with teenage kids because she can accidentally knock little ones down. She has not met many other dogs so some socialization work is likely in order. She also looks forward to training and learning new things. If you are looking for a young mal to help develop and grow this cutie is your gal.

Luna currently lives in a home with a senior dog and interacts with her well and gets to attend daycare too where we imagine she is the life of the party. She enjoys toys and the occasional tug of war too. She is happy to share her toys but loves her food so much she is protective of it and wants it all to herself.

This classic black and white beauty is super fit and runs with her current owner regularly. She also has solid prey drive so best with a home free of cats rodent pets and chickens. While Luna is in a loving home her owner knows Luna deserves more time and attention than she can currently give. Given her size and power an adult family or with older kids would be best.

Kiba is being lovingly cared for in Portland OR by his current family. For more information on Kiba please contact Travis at travis at stankhouserecords.com

Kiba is a smart loyal and sometimes insecure boy who has grown up in the city but longs for country life. He is looking for an adult-only home or one with teenage kids who can respect his need to build trust with humans over time and give him the space he likes to have. He requires careful introductions to people and needs an experienced handler who understands his personality and behavior type to help keep him safe and happy.

Due to a puppyhood accident Kiba lost his left front leg but that does not slow him down. He has an abundance of energy and would love to run and hike with a new family. He walks great on a leash and knows sit down come stay and roll over. Plus he waits for permission to eat as it is the polite thing to do.

Since Kiba lacks self confidence he typically has not enjoyed many dog friends but he seems to be more comfortable around ones who are smaller than him. He has grown up with three family cats and they all get along but chickens and critters are not welcome. Kiba enjoys playing fetch and with sticks outside. He has challenges with resource guarding food and toys so a family who understands that would be best.

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.
