If you are interested in Doug and Roxy please fill out an online application and we will schedule your home visit ASAP.
Doug is one half of a bonded pair that we would really like to keep together. He is listed along with his mom Roxy and they have spent their whole lives together. Doug and his mom Roxy are in need of a new home after their owner could no longer care for them and turned them into the shelter. Doug is very friendly with both adults and children although he can be a bit shy at first but give him a bit of time to warm up and he will be leaning in for pets and loving. Both Doug and Roxy have been outside only dogs so will need some help with potty training as well as learning their basic commands. Doug has not spent much time on a leash so will also need some work learning his leash manners. Volunteers are working with Doug and Roxy and we will update their bios as soon as we have more information.
If you are looking for a sweet and gentle bonded pair than look no further than Doug and Roxy!
The adoption fee of $400 for both dogs includes spay-neuter and all vaccines.
Doug is being lovingly cared for in Washington while he awaits his new forever home.

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.
