About Mallie......Mally is a happy smiley boy who needs time to settle in. He would suit a home with other dogs as long as they are patient with him because he still needs to learn some manners. He prefers to be outside whenever he can, so a well secured garden is a must! When he settles he is a funny and playful boy and when persuaded, quite loving. He enjoyed Jogging with his previous owners and will be trying out weightpull soon. Mally has a sensitive tummy so any forever home will have to consider his dietary needs. He is currently on half B.A.R.F (and coldpress). Mally needs a family that has the time to let him settle but when he does he will be a wonderful addition to the family!
A message from Max....Hello my name is Mally! I have been told that I am a little aloof...whatever that means. I take a while to warm to people sometimes but when I decide I like them I like to woo, snort & throw my head about. My Foster parents say this is my 'horse impression' and that I am a funny boy. I really like toys and my dinner, and have been told I need to learn to share. My Foster parents have taught me however to sit and wait for my dinner which I couldn't do before. I am a Happy smiley lad who just loves to laze about outside!
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 ;)
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!
A message from Ziggy.... Ziggy is 7 years old and has unfortunately had to come back into rescue despite efforts from his adopters to keep him. He requires a home with somebody at home most of the time, someone with a high level of patience as he gets stressed with changing environments. He can be very vocal and can require renewed efforts on house training until he is settled and feels secure. Ziggy gets very excited around other dogs, so probably a home where he is an only dog is best. He isn’t high maintenance in terms of exercise and as long as he isn’t allowed to get away with bad behaviour he is a good family pet, older children advisable.

About Sweetie…. 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 xx
About Bart….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
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!.....
About Tubbs…..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!
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.
Thor is being returned to his breeder due to the unsettled nature of his owner’s work. He is a well-bred boy around 4 years old with no known health issues and lives well as a member of the family including respectful children. Although he has been living as an only dog, his previous owners think he would do well with a female companion.
He would prefer a family home with a settled environment and a set routine as he finds constant changes stressful. He is a well-mannered boy and will do well in the right home.
