But, thanks to her dedicated foster family she is now doing well and will soon be ready to meet a new family who will carry on her fosterers’ good work and allow her to blossom into the stunning northern girl she is destined to become.
There are 2 black and white ones, a girl and a boy, and we have 2 of the silver with black markings. They are growing into lovely dogs but what you have to remember is that they will most probably be quite big. They will need lots of attention as they don’t cope well when left alone even when adults. They came in quite hungry so amongst themselves they will squabble for their food. They are all very quick at picking up toilet training.
Please remember that this breed is the heavy weight amongst the working northern dogs and will need their brains and their bodies well exercised to keep them out of trouble. It is vital that you look past the pretty face to the type of dog who comes with it. Malamutes are stubborn, friendly, independent, energetic, intelligent, dominant and possess a highly developed sense of pack hierarchy. Many people cherish all of these traits, but many people find living with them too difficult. The time to decide which group you are in is BEFORE you adopt a puppy. There are so many different breeds of dogs that there is absolutely no excuse for choosing one whose temperament and needs will not fit in with yours.
The RSPCA doesn’t rehome ANY dog as a guard dog and even though Malamutes are large dogs they most definitely aren’t guard dogs. They are likely to welcome the attention of any burglar and even show him/her where your valuables are kept.
We are looking for families where at least one adult family member is at home most of the time, especially whilst they are still such babies.
