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

We pulled Emmett from one of our partner shelters and are learning more about this young adult. So far we have found him to be a friendly goofy boy just shy of 100 pounds-and still has a few pounds to gain. He is a typical malamute with a high prey drive so needs a home without small animals. He is great with mid-sized dogs and larger. He enjoys playing with toys and is a big strong boy. He can be protective of his food. He loves people and is just a happy pup!

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

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

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

The ideal home for Kubo has another dog companion and no young children. He can be a little timid when he is getting to know you but warms right up and is described by our volunteers as very sweet and easy to handle and walk with - he will even lean into you and give kisses. He knows a few basic commands and is house trained. He is such a good boy! Along with the good he does have the typical malamute challenge of being an escape artist so needs a securely fenced yard to keep him safe. That is really his only challenge as he gets along well with other dogs and loves all outdoor activities.

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

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

Are you looking for a new energetic friend to keep you company? Shadow would love nothing more than being your shadow! A good though energetic walker on leash he is responsive to commands-including sit and lay down-and was easily redirected when two small dogs were barking at him while walking by a fence. As is typical of the breed Shadow needs exercise to get out his excitement and energy. He enjoys people and walked right up to give our volunteer kisses and welcomed tummy scratches. He can jump up in excitement so will need to continue to work on this. He allowed handling but did pull a bit away when feeling one of his legs and appeared to have a bit of a hop when running. We will be monitoring this however initial vet reports state he does not appear to be caused discomfort at this time. He has done well with other dogs however has scuffled with other male malamutes so would likely do best with a submissive female. There were no issues with other dogs related to food toys beds or human attention. Shadow was previously an outdoor only dog that transitioned to an apartment dog. We believe his ideal home will have outdoor space with a secure yard with plenty of time indoors with his pack.

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

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

Meet Rainy who is a young impressionable male with boundless energy and cheeky behavior. This handsome youngster is in need of a breed savvy home who can help him develop and grow into his 90 pound frame and be a great companion. Right now he is working on his jumping and mouthy behavior. He says he is just showing off his pearly whites but knows he needs guidance and care in an adult only home or perhaps with teen kids. He also can be possessive over some stuff but is learning how to be more cooperative.

Rainy has played well with dogs his own size and he reportedly lived successfully with cats. He is a rough and tumble Malamute mix who will benefit from structure and outdoor activities. If you can offer room to run and live an active lifestyle that would be enhanced with a pup who needs to burn some energy Rainy is your guy. .

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

Meet Hannah our picture perfect Diva! She is a strong-willed Alaskan Malamute mix with one of the cutest fuzzy faces around. Being a true example to the breed Hannah likes to test her limits occasionally. As such she will require an adopter who has a good understand of pack rules and a loving yet firm hand during training. Hannah loves a long hike as much as a Netflix and chill night on the couch. Her favorite snack is cheese curds. So if you have access to Beechers Handmade Cheese she would like to meet you immediately.

Hannah loves being with her humans and so if she is left for long periods of time may try to escape to find the company of another person to spoil her. Hannah needs an escape proof home environment (Fort Knox like since she is a master at creative escapes). She is a bit cool towards other dogs and would prefer to be your one and only in true Diva fashion. Cats and young children are probably not a good mix for this girl. .

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

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

I am a Malamute through and through! I would do best with someone familiar with my breed and our needs. I have been outdoors most of my life and will need time adjusting to indoor living.

I have a history of taking myself out on adventures so I will need supervision when outdoors or we can go on adventures together on leash of course. I dont always like to share my food toys or bedding with other animals or people. I am not one to sit still! I will flourish in a home with someone that will keep me mentally and physically active. Not only do I pull on heart strings but I also pull on leash so I will need someone to help me with my leash manners. .

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

Nooka is full of fur and energy and ready to transition from kennel life to family life. She loves to sing and be heard. She is hoping her future family hears her soon. She is a big beautiful girl who would like to trim up a bit after she gets into a stable and supportive home environment. She enjoys walking and likes to pull but overall handles well on leash.

She can be protective of her food and Kong so will need a family who is savvy about her needs. She is happy with human contact but may be scared of or more hesitant around men. She can decide when she meets them. Nooka prefers her tail and backside not be touched currently so she has some sensitivity in that area. Nooka is eager for an active lifestyle and settling in with a family soon.

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

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.

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

Troys story is one of those heart breakers that we cant wait to turn into a happy ending! Abandoned at a shelter Troy is hoping for a fresh start with a family who understands and respects a dog who would like to trust humans but needs the space and time to feel comfortable and confident in his surroundings. Troy was placed into an experienced foster home and is reportedly making great strides in learning to trust and be the playful pup that confidence brings.

Troy loves his leash walks and getting outdoors and especially running and playing with a same sized doggie pal and would thrive with an active adult family. Folks who have met him see a lot of potential and he is opening up and feeling comfortable enough to give kisses and accept belly rubs. Troy takes treats very gently from peoples hands and given his love of treats he will appreciate training exercises where he can earn them. Troy is crate trained also.

Troy is a handsome boy who will need a patient dog savvy home where he can continue to build his confidence and trust with humans. This young Mal will require a larger than normal dose of patience gentle guidance and understanding to earn his trust but you will be rewarded with a larger than normal dose of love and dedication from this gentle Mal!

She has been with the same foster family since having her pups and she is now a healthy young huskamute via DNA testing she is exactly half Alaskan malamute and half Siberian husky who requires an experienced forever family.

Zaya is estimated to be around 2 years old and is as playful and affectionate as she is intelligent and mischievous.

Zaya adores people and other dogs but cannot be placed in a home with cats or small animals. Zaya has made significant progress around house training since being with her foster family but still has occasional accidents and will need continued active training regarding household etiquette.

Zayas adoption fee is $350 and includes her spay up-to-date basic vaccines rabies vaccine and microchip.

COURTESY LISTING

Maximus is being lovingly cared for by his current family. For more information on Maximus please contact steelnation210 at yahoo.com

We have had Maximus since he was three months old. He has always been a very happy friendly loving and high energy malamute mix. Unfortunately after 6 years Maximus is now needing a new place to call home due to some recent behavioral changes. He started showing signs of these issues after being attacked by another dog 4 years ago and it has slowly progressed.

He plays great with our other dog but since the attack can be fearful of dogs. We were working with a trainer and saw some improvement within just three classes with his training. Max was able to walk beside the other dog sniff each ether etc. but we are unable to continue training due to financial reasons. I believe with the right owner home and training he can become the confident social and human loving dog he was before being attacked.

IMPORTANT-Please Note:

Maximus 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 owner. WAMAL cannot guarantee this information or take responsibility for any inaccurate information posted in this listing.

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

Ozzie is a fun loving affectionate pup. His giant smile gets lots of attention- which he doesnt mind- as he loves to be snuggled and loved on. Ozzie prefers to sleep by his humans and is said to be crate trained. At just 10 months old he is still learning and can get a bit excited and curious. He will respond well to structure and continued discipline and education to help him learn his boundaries. Ozzie can get a little too possessive over food so he may prefer to be the only K9 in the house however he has previously coexisted with a kitty and with proper introduction may be able to do so again. Ozzie is a youngster which means he will need adequate physical and mental stimulation. Ozzie is looking for an active and patient family to help him continue to blossom into the wonderful dog he is.

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

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