Youki's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

Youki's Story...
Youki’s owner found himself homeless, living on the streets with both Youki and a Min Pin. Something happened to the owner and the two dogs were picked up by Animal Control. AMROD has had Youki since April 2016.

He’s hit and miss with other dogs, yet very friendly with women and children. Initially men can scare him, and it’s best to let Youki acclimate to the man, let Youki approach him.

Crating Youki is not an option. He will destroy one in a short period of time no matter what type or gage wire. Toys don’t hold any interest for him, nor does a soothing radio or TV station help. He’ll not destroy the bedding in a crate, but he will destroy the crate to get out of it.

The good news is, Youki is not destructive in the house uncrated and he’s house trained. He lies peacefully, enjoys a soft bed and is quite comfortable inside a home. However, if he is alone, he will become destructive. If he has another dog with him, he’s fine. Alone and he starts chewing at the trim on the front door.

The perfect home would be with someone who is home the majority of the time or able to take Youki to work (he loves to ride). A home that has another dog to keep Youki company when the person is out could also work. You could easily walk Youki and a 2nd dog at the same time. At 5 years old, Youki is quiet, playful and interactive, but not overly energetic. His anxiety at being alone is manageable and you’ll find he’s a very loyal and loveable companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Youki, a Augusta County 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 Augusta County, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute dog from a breeder in Augusta County.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Augusta County 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 Augusta County 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 Augusta County paves the way for another one to be saved.
