Diamond's Story...
LOCATION - PORTLAND-METRO AREA, OR
COURTESY LISTING - for Wolf Angel Rescue of Oregon

Shentea and Diamond need a new home together. They are brother and sister from the same father, and appear to be malamute and shepherd crosses. While we really prefer to place them together, for the right home we may be open to separating them and placing them individually.

They are both 'medium' dogs, measuring between 24-25" at the shoulder and about 36" long from nose to flank, excluding their rather bushy tails.

Diamond is the long-haired one, and is the younger of the two at two years old. His full name is Black Diamond, since he was born black, but then lightened to his current coloration. Diamond is very affectionate with people once he becomes accustomed to them, and enjoys offering his paws for behaviors and light wrestling matches even with people.

Shentea and Diamond have both been housebroken at their current foster home, even overnight. However, they may need some reminding when they transition to a new space. They are microchipped and up to date on shots. Neither has shown signs of food possession issues, and will go into their dog houses when told it's time to go 'night night', allowing the door to be shut behind them, so they will likely be easy to crate train.

Shentea and Diamond have both been exposed to a cat and live with one in their current foster home. While they would love to chase the cat, the cat is pretty much dog-proof, and ignores their efforts. After the initial attempt, Shentea and Diamond seem just as content to ignore him too.

Diamond can be a little over protective of his sister, so if play escalates and he thinks she may be in trouble, he will try to play police officer. He also can be a little showy when first meeting other dogs, and likes to posture a bit, so a home without another dominant male would be best. Otherwise he's a typical male husky mix - goofy and playful! We don't think he'd do well with small children though. His very small exposure to them has been through the television, and the sounds of them playing (even scripted) made him neurotic. He also doesn't like to be approached by children when out on his walks.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Diamond, a Ashland Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Ashland, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Ashland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ashland already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Ashland breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Alaskan Malamute/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ashland paves the way for another one to be saved.
