Valdez!'s Story...
Valdez and his buddy Bethel were rescued from a Southern California shelter. They were not properly socialized in their prior lives so will need an experienced and patient home. They have come a long way since rescue but still have a long path ahead of them. It takes them a while to learn to trust so we are looking for homes that might have dealt with neglected dogs before and are prepared for the added challenges that this breed might posses. One of these challenges for Valdez is his ability to jump a 6ft fence. These boys are very sweet and mild mannered, they deserve real homes for the holidays. Here are some notes from their current caretaker: Wooly Boys, Valdez & Bethel, are northern breed mixes with fluffy coats perfect for snuggling in the chilly weather.
Both came into rescue lacking social skills & confidence, but good progress has been made with a lot of time being walked on leash.
Valdez has a gentlemanly handshake greeting. Bethel likes to give kisses.
Each needs a calm & patient home. Bethel might do best with another large dog - these two are about 65lbs. Valdez is 7 yrs & Bethel, 3 yrs. Please email right away if you would like to learn more about this dog......and visit our website to learn more about our rescue group. Adoption fees range from $150-$250 for dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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