He is a big beautiful boy looking for a new family that has the time to spend with him. Diesel is a very sweet and friendly malamute/husky mix who loves giving out hugs and kisses. He is great with all people including older kids but may be too big for a household with younger children as he sometimes forgets his size and can knock little ones down. Diesel is a master hunter and gatherer and will bring you his trophies of moles and mice back to you to show off his prowess. Because of his accomplished hunting skills he needs a home without cats or other small critters. He also is a skilled passenger in the family pick up truck as he frequently calls: Shotgun! and he rides beautifully in the front seat. Diesel does well with other dogs his size but is unknown with small dogs as he has never been around them. Diesel is house trained and kennel trained and enjoys his leash walks. Being a young strong mal he is a puller but he is working on his leash manners.
If you are looking for your next loyal companion hiking buddy running partner and all around love bug then Diesel may be the mal for you!
The adoption fee of $300 includes spay-neuter and all vaccines.
Diesel is being lovingly cared for in Washington.

Alaskan Malamutes are warm and friendly, playful, gentle, intelligent and silly. Their exquisite beauty is the result of centuries of adaptation to the harsh Arctic climate where they lived as close companions to the Mahlemut Eskimos, pulling heavy sledges over terrible terrain in harsh weather.
Malamutes shed twice a year and should be brushed regularly. Since they are so large, they should never be left alone with small children unsupervised, though this is true of any dog.
Malamutes participate in many sports such as backpacking, weight-pulling, carting, sojourning and competition obedience. Their best-known feature is their extraordinary sweetness of temperament.
