Facts about Youki

  • Breed: Alaskan Malamute Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
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 good with other dogs, pretty much of any size, and very friendly with women and children. Initially men scare him, and it’s best to let Youki acclimate to the man, let Youki approach him. If the man is aggressive or pushy towards Youki, Youki will back up, sit and give a low growl.

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.

About Alaskan Malamute Rescue of Delaware

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of dedicated volunteers saving the lives of Alaskan Malamutes. We pull Mals from shelters that euthanize, accept owner release Malamutes and help educate the public on the characteristics of Malamutes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are all volunteers. Our dogs are with fosters or in boarding kennels. Arrangements are made to meet them by appointment once your application has been processed and your home visit completed.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an application which requires references, including a vet reference. If you rent, we require written permission from your Landlord allowing you to adopt a Malamute. Once we receive your application, it is processed and then we arrange a home visit. Upon completion, you are invited to meet the Mals. From you application we generally have a good idea of which dog suits you. Our adoption contract states that if something should happen, the dog is returned to us. Our adoption fee is $225 for an adult and higher for a puppy under one year. All of our Mals are healthy, up to date on shots, spayed/neutered, and heartworm negative.
