Facts about Althea

  • Breed: Alaskan Malamute
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female

Althea is a lovely, smaller Alaskan Malamute that came from a severe neglect and abuse case. One of 31 dogs seized from a breeder by the authorities, all dogs, including Althea, were emaciated, ill, and in horrible shape. Althea is one of the four that k9.5 Rescue took in, and we are so glad that she's a part of our rescue.

Althea was emaciated, had several mammary gland masses that we had to remove, a severe UTI and parasites. She has recovered well from surgery and treatments, and is now ready to find a forever home that will never let her face hard times again.

Althea would enjoy a large male dog as a companion, but NO smaller dogs and NO cats. She would also do okay as a spoiled only dog. She loves people tremendously and likes to give out kisses and snuggles. She enjoys all sorts of toys, and you'll find her hoarding them all in a pile to play with at any given time. Her other favorite thing is sprawling out on the couch for nap time.

Althea has lived a life in a kennel, never knowing kindness or if she would get any sort of meal. Today she is enjoying life despite the past hardships, and we look forward to finding her a kind, devoted family that will make her their pride and joy. If you would like to commit your life as her a best friend and guardian, then let us know!
