Max's Story...
LOCATION: ANDERSON INDIANA Meet Max!!! Max is an approx 70lb 11mo old boy. He's good sized but not huge by Mally standards; that and other characteristics I think he may be mixed with some Sibe in there. Max is a bit more mally then husky I think, he likes to be by his people and is a bit shy at first meeting new people and dogs but once he has figured out all is ok, play time is on! He has not met a person or dog he doesn't like but he does insist they be willing to play play play (he is a puppy after all!) He is very mellow outside of play time, likes soft comfy things to lay on or a cool spot to stretch his belly out on. He is tall enough to grab things off of the counters and he will get into an open trash can. He responds to correction very well for a puppy. He has met a 2 yr old and a 6 yr old and did very well with them but he does still mouth and jump and may be a bit much for younger kids. He will definitely need either a very active person or a playmate or 2, human or canine. He would make a wonderful sled dog with his energy, need for interactive play and trainability. Based on the way he stares down the neighbors cat, I would recommend no cats in his house. He currently lives with a 4 foot fence and has not made any escape attempts. Max absolutely HATES the crate. He does better with larger areas and he is more calm when he can see someone is there with him but does not do well alone, in a crate or otherwise. I honestly think he is claustrophobic cause he is terrified of the cone too! He currently has access to a large yard with a dog door and does well when left alone with the female husky (other then trying to make her play and getting her grumpy at him). Again, he would do best with other dogs. 100% house trained and knows how to sit, drop it and will take treats very gently after told 'OK'. Max shares his toys willingly with people and dogs (other than rawhides) and likes company when he eats his food. He is a picky eater when it comes to dog food (we are still trying to find one that makes him and his belly happy) but loves fruits and vegetables enough to steal and eat a whole tomato from the counter! Max had a bad case of fleas when we took him in; and he has a flea allergy so his poor little belly is still recovering. Its itchy and raw; and needs to wear a cone (THAT HE HATES) when you are not watching him so he gives it time for the meds to work and for his skin to heal. He MUST stay on flea prevent YEAR ROUND. Flea allergy can be aggravated by a single bite, so prevention is an absolute. He is so uncomfortable you don't ever want him to go through this again; or you for that matter smile emoticon Application, Home visit and contract apply. Adoption fee $300 Application:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Elkhart Alaskan Malamute/Siberian Husky puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Alaskan Malamute/Siberian Husky for sale in Elkhart, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute/Siberian Husky puppy from a breeder in Elkhart.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elkhart 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 Elkhart 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/Siberian Husky breeders who help with Alaskan Malamute/Siberian Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elkhart paves the way for another one to be saved.
