Are You Considering Adoption of
An Alaskan Malamute

 

This is a good time! If you’re investigating, or have taken the decision to apply to adopt of one of our Alaskan Malamutes, here is a brief summary of some of the things you need to consider.

You’ll find full explanations on the Rescue Process and FAQs page so please be sure to check out the details that apply to you.

If you have young children and/or cats, it doesn’t mean that we can’t place a dog with you but it does mean that it may take more time and require some patience and careful screening.

We do not place Malamutes in households where there are children under five years of age. And, because Malamutes have a high prey drive, there is no guarantee that a dog who accepted a cat in its former home (and “pack”) is necessarily going to accept your cat, or cats, in your home.

We have resources and volunteers to help with the transition. When you’ve considered all the options and concluded that you’re ready to apply, please use the link below to download an application and email it to

MALE

 

Maximus

3 years of age

based inStaffordshire

 

UNDER PROFESSIONAL ASSESSMENT

 

 

 

 

About Maximus.......Massive Maximus is looking for a forever home; Max has lived with another male Malamute previously and although his canine manners out and about are not too bad we feel he will be suited to either being the only dog in the home or living with a friendly female Malamute or a dog of a similar temperamental type so he doesn’t push his luck with a ‘lesser’ dog too much. Max doesn't particular respond to well to other male dogs near his immediate space. Max enjoyed his day out at Sherwood recently with one of his walkers Tracy, the photo here is from Max’s day out which he thoroughly enjoyed. Due to his size, strength and confident nature Max is looking for a home without children under the age of 16 years and an experienced dog owner.

A message from Maximus……..Hi…I’m one big big Malamute! You will need strength to handle me that is for sure as I’m a typical lively Malamute with the edge of being huge….I was just born to grow and grow I think! I can be a bit ‘gobby’ around other dogs but I do react quite well to commands and redirection – I will need an experienced handle if I don’t say so myself! Cheers and hope to hear from you soon; Max aka BIG BEAR!

Chubbs

7 years of age

based in Glasgow

 

Available to adopt

 

 

About Chubbs…… What a wonderful friendly male Malamute we have here! As you can see from his photos, he’s an inquisitive soul and pulls some lovely funny faces at times…..a Malamute that will make you chuckle I’m sure.!!

 

A gentle Malamute….Chubbs is full of character, a strong boy with an expression that could melt your heart. He’s a wild child at heart, full of energy and would work well in harness if given the opportunity. 7 years does not reflect his effort and energy – one could easily mistake him as a 2 -3 year old Malamute!
Chubbs can be a little unsociable around other male canines, however he could take quite well to a female of the similar breed ; although to be fair…..we think he would quite enjoy having all the attention to himself! If you would like a slightly older Malamute but yet who still has lot of go go go in him…this is the lad for you!

 

Chubbs is a cheeky chappy, he really will make someone a wonderful canine companion.

Not to be homed with children under the age of 12 years of age due to no history of him doing so in the past.


 

 

MALE

 

Max

3 years of age

based in South Yorkshire

 

 

STILL LOOKING TO BE ADPOTED

 

 

About Max......Modest Max has through no fault of his own – owner’s change in circumstance. Max will need a calm, quiet environment, where the owner will give him chance to ‘come round’ at his own pace. Once he’s comfortable and has made friends he really is a good dog. Max is not to be homed with children under the age 14 years purely due to their being no history known of him living with smaller children successfully.

 



A message from Max.... I’d like to meet someone who has a sensitive side, someone who can identify with being shy but someone who can show me the way and show that meeting people is good and understands that I may just need them to take their time with me. I’ve been told that there are lots of dogs out there like me…you know…a dog that needs time and I’m also told that AMCUK Rescue have homed some Malamutes like me in the past and they are doing well with the right adopters. You can find a few success stories on the website about dogs similar to me – just thought I would give you some encouragement to give me a chance if you can…..Max ;)

 

 

MALE

 

Storm
2 1/2 years of age
based in Stoke on Trent

 

 

STILL LOOKING TO BE ADPOTED

 

 

 


About Storm….Storm entered rescue due to family circumstances and the owner lacking confidence with his handling. He is young with much potential for someone that can give him some one to one attention, embark on regular training and socialisation sessions - this is clearly needed for him, would be a good worker for anyone wanting to train him in a harness. When storm came into rescue he wasn’t overly confident but the last few months he has grown an developed, he loves going on walks with the other rescues and loves to play especially with his best mate Blake, he gets on will with the rescues but is always up for some playtime with them. An experience Malamute owner would best suit Storm.
Not to be homed with children under the age of 14 years of age – due to no history of living with smaller children.


A message from Storm…….I’m a lively lad with much potential, I’m very independent and sometimes like to do my own thing, I’m not much for being fussed over as i will come to you for cuddles when I’m ready, i love being out and can walk miles so I’m looking for someone who’s going to help me burn my energy and guide me in life as I’ve picked up a few habits, if you have the time and patients to help me get on the straight and narrow I’m waiting for you.

Blaze

4 months years of age

Based in Glasgow

 

STILL LOOKING TO BE ADPOTED

 

 

 

About Blaze…. Bright Blaze, one lively focussed lad! We feel he would work excellent in harness given his nature and desire in life. Blaze can react strongly when walking near other dogs however we are working with Blaze on this and he is improving so I’m sure he will improve with someone who wants to give a dog some one to one support and time.
Not to be homed with children under the age of 16 years of age due to know known history of doing so successfully.

A message from Blaze..... Howdie! Blaze here, I’m a lovable rogue; I will keep you on your toes that is for sure; I see myself as a Del Boy of the World; ducking and diving; sometimes in mischief sometimes trying to avoid it!

About Bonnie…Beautiful Bonnie is loving and affectionate, loves being the centre of attention, she has a massive heart with lots of love just for you, this lovely lady is looking for someone to give her some tlc and lots of love in return, she is a joy to walk, and loves nothing more that going for gentle strolls, and especially the country parks the best, especially ones that have lots of water as she loves to swim,but be warned if she see’s water your off, you may even go for a dip yourself if your not careful, she is ok around other dogs on walks but is not too good in very close proximity hense this lovely lady is looking for her to be the only dog in the home. Please get in touch with rescue if you can offer this beautiful girl a loving home that she deserves. Not to be homed with children under the age of 14 years of age – due to no history of living with smaller children

 

A message from Bonnie….. I’m a very happy girl who has so much love to give and wants nothing more than someone to love me back, give me comfy bed and lots of cuddles, i love being out on walks and really enjoy going out with the other rescues although i do boss them about at times, i listen really well and can follow instruction from my handlers, my all time love is water and if theres any about I’m in and really enjoy swimming.

KEENO

Under assessment

 

 

 

About Keeno…. About Keeno.......Kriptic Keeno is one lively lad full of energy who loves to jump and run. Keeno is a typical Malamute but does require guidance and he needs to really up his manners…Don’t disregard Keeno though!….all he needs is someone who can give him the time, patience and attention he deserves. Keeno has walked great with the rescue Malamutes where he now kennels in Stoke however can be reactive to some dogs he passes but nothing too serious.
Keeno would probably suit being the only dog in the home, although someone who has experience a placement could work with a female of similar stature but they would need to be experienced.
Keeno is not to be rehomed with children under the age of 16 years of age due to their being no history of him doing so successfully in his previous time.

A message from Keeno..... Oh my where do I start! I’m a happy lad…and…I’m a pushy lad. I have wise Malamute shoulders soyou will need to be able to take care of me and show me the way; a new way. I’m friendly with people but I do have a really bad habit of being too bouncy and jumpy which I know isn’t great especially when a dog is as big as I am! I promise to try though if you promise to try with me?? Please??

DEISEL

Based in Glasgow

 

Available to adopt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About Deisel…. Devoted Deisel is a very nice natured male Malamute. Deisel is very big and very strong so it is essential we find him an experienced, strong and confident new owner. Deisel has lived with another male Malamute successfully in the past and he has also lived with a female Malamute cross in foster care.
Although Deisel seems to take well to living with another dog in his environment, he will need professional training and guidance with regards to his interest in other dogs whilst out and about. However having said this he walks better on his own than when with another dog. Having another dog walk side by side with Deisel does not help his cause and for this reason we would prefer him to go to a home where he is the only dog and where the new owner can give him the guidance he deserves. Deisel has improved dramatically though but there is still some way to go. What Deisel lacks in canine manners, he certainly makes up for in nature and character.

When his dog walker Pamela tries to take a photo of him, he follows her about so the photos are close ;)

A message from Deisel..... Deisel could live with children above the age of 8 years we feel.
A message from Deisel:
Well that’s just about spot on, what can I say. I’m a lovable rogue, I’m great natured and sincerely a great guy but I would prefer for someone to come along and be able to give me all of their time and devotion; I like living with other dogs but I need some work outdoors so I’ll forfit the canine friend for your help if that’s ok? Can you help me?

SWEETIE

2 years of age

Based in Glasgow

 

 

Available to adopt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When Sweetie first came in she was friendly, noisy, and energetic and she still proves to be just that!

 

Sweetie gets on well with all the boys and enjoys being let out to play with them, especially Ricky. Sweetie is a bit of a flirt with the boys, turns it on when she needs to. Sweetie is very well behaved, calm and confident in kennels and with people she knows. However, she is very nervous when out on lead, and still easily scared and nervous with strangers. This is not unusual for the Northern Ireland dogs. We feel Sweetie could live alone but think she would prefer to be with a male or males, she seems to enjoy their company. We feel she will settle with most lifestyles as she doesn't seem to have any particular needs or be overly needy. Sweetie would prefer an active lifestyle, long walks and runs, after all she is just a young healthy Malamute.

 

A message from Sweetie….’ok..I’m a Diva, I am the pretty girl, the lovely friendly girl, the great and the wonderful girl, the mighty…..!...ok back down to earth…..I’m Sweetie, the sweet Malamute he he ;) I love the boys woo hoo…I love to greet people too. Infact I like most boys I meet so would love a male companion or two, hopefully same type as me, you know one of us lovely Malamutes ;)…..take care everyone, LOVE Sweetie xxx

BART

Viewing pending

Approximately 18 months of age Based in Glasgow

 

 

 

Available to adopt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bart is the dog who is taking longest to learn how to behave and engage with people. He was the longest to become unafraid, and while he still will show fear of people it is much better. He wants to approach you and make contact but he prefers to do it at speed while running by or will jump away immediately after. He is definitely beginning to connect with time and patience is improving daily. On a positive note, Bart enjoys human contact when he feels comfortable and will lay on his back to be brushed.

 

Bart gets a lot of confidence from Tubbs, he loves to play with him and learns from him. I wouldn't say Bart is ready to be considered for homing but when he is I think he would benefit hugely from staying with Tubbs if possible. He may also do well as part of a large team. Bart will need someone who is patient and confident, a good listener to listen to how his carers have brought him on so far.

 

A message from Bart….. No no no I’m not Bart Simpson! Great name though hey?..I’m famous yah! Ok, granted I’m still coming around but with time I’m sure I will be just fine…honest..I’m doing quite well but just need a little more time before I depart from my carers. Please keep an eye out for more updates on me and if you feel you could offer me a home, let the rescue team know now as you could perhaps come and visit me just so we can meet each other initially until I am ready for rehome and then perhaps more follow up visits……now that would be nice’…thanks for reading love Bart x

RICKY

Available for adoption

Approximately 18 months of age

 

 

 

 

Available to adopt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When Ricky first came in he was more active than the others.

Ricky is so much fun! Ricky is so very affectionate and loves to climb all over his carers and get as many cuddles as possible. If there was a competition for the dog that could gain the most cuddles in one minute…Ricky would win hands (sorry paws) down. Ricky gets very attached to soft toys and seems to get comfort from them. Ricky is outgoing, energetic, loves to play, likes to play with balls and squeaky toys. Ricky would need someone who is at home most of the day as we think he may suffer from separation anxiety given his need for human company. Ricky would also benefit from being with a confident dog, preferably an older male or female of a friendly nature, same breed would be ideal. Ricky can be noisey and tell you what he wants, he always seems to have something to say – I suppose he just knows how to express himself….not a bad thing really.

 

A message from Ricky…..’awright everyone….Ricky here….fun loving, memorable guy, that’s me….modest....nah not me ;)…so you like cuddles with a friendly dog? You like to be active and bouncy? You will be home most of the day? You have a friendly dog in the home already? You have experience of a large breed? Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes? well Cool.....come and get me now! I’ll send a post card to my carers as I love them dearly but boy you sound great if you tick those boxes!

TUBBS

Available for adoption

5 years of age

Based in Glasgow

 

 

 

 

Available to adopt

 

 

 

 

 


When Tubbs first came in he was sad ;( so sad ;( very still but jumpy with noise and very quiet.....well a good few weeks on and already he's coming on GREAT!.....


..........Now Tubbs has become a wonderful, easy going, calm, mature, sweet, gentle, playful dog. We think he's 5 years old. He is the biggest and oldest. He's confident with the other dogs and takes the role of pack leader. He's very light on his feet and loves to jump up, and likes tummy rubs if you bend down to him. He's learnt to sit, and is slowly becoming more confident outside on lead but that's when he is at his most vulnerable and nervous but then again most of they are so not unusual to his situation with the right guidance and patience he should develop in this area without trouble. He settles well in his kennel but may be feeling a bit stressed and we are doing a few things to try to change that. Tubbs may live successfully with a steady male or female. Tubbs likes people and dogs and ideally we would like to see him go to a home with a friendly dog or dogs as he is natural leader and thrives with other dogs.

 

A message from Tubbs.... ‘Hiya everyone ;).... I’m the oldest, no I really am! I know I look smashing but really I’m coming up to the lovely age of 5 years...I can really strut my stuff you know! My mates tell me that’s a wonderful age for a Malamute; still full of energy but a bit steadier in the lunatic department ;) well that wasn’t quite their words but they are mine as I’m a cheeky monkey! Hope to hear from you and would love to make friends with a friendly dog or two! All the best from your mate Tubbs!

Thalia

My name is Thalia and my carer calls me a sweet girl. I am still getting used to being stroked but everyday I am getting better and better. I don't like sudden movements so my carer is very gentle with me and talks to me in a gentle manner. I love treats and do take them gently. When it is feeding time my carer asks me to wait but sometimes she does hold my collar because I can't wait to get tucked in to my food, we are working on that. I get on with other males as I have a friend named Thor that I like to run around and play with in the garden. I also have another friend called Chuck who likes to come and see me at the fence and always talks to me. I don't bother other dogs as I see plenty of them about and pass their kennels, I just look and walk on by. I am still a little apprehensive when we go for walks and I am still wondering what my carer is holding, she tells me it's ok, it's a lead and gently guides me along. It will take me a while to get used to traffic and I wouldn't want to go anywhere where it is too busy just yet, so please be patient with me.


 

 

BREEDER REHOME

Timba

 



Timba is a well bred, 6 year old, healthy neutered male. He has recently had a full health check, with no problems, he is micro chipped and up to date on his boosters/worming/flea treatment. He walks very well on the lead, has been taught basic obedience commands and is very well mannered. As Timba is from good working parents, he could be a good candidate for working training, subject to a correct introduction to activities. Timba doesn't like to be left on his own for any length of time, as a very affectionate boy, he prefers to be with you. He lived with a female GSD at his previous home. Timba was returned to his breeder as the family had a further child & Timba was too boisterous around him. To that end, the breeder is looking for a Malamute experienced home, with either a large female dog or a home where the owner will be home for most of the day. No children under 10 years old.
