Kermit's Info...

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

Kermit's Story...
Kermit is an easy going guy about 3 years old and 84 lbs. He interacts well with large female dogs and is fairly submissive to the couple males he's been introduced to. Here's a description from his foster mom:

I made friends with a 12 year-old boy (human) personality. Foster mom has taught me “off” and sometimes I believe her. In the kitchen, there are really good smells and my nose can easily reach the counter top. But foster mom is persistent (it takes two “no’s” for me to believe her when she says “off”) and then I lay down in front of the refrigerator like a good boy.

I take all the stuffed animals off the couch but I don’t tear apart my toys. I even got the couch cushion off once, but foster mom, said “off” and put the cushion back so I leave the cushions alone now. I sit when foster mom puts on my leash and I know to ”wait” when she opens the front door all the way. I stand with my head out the door but my feet are in the house so it counts that I am waiting. I like to go on walks and don’t pull too much. An EZ harness would help with that if needed. Foster mom says “turn” and I turn and circle her instead. It gets kind of confusing sometimes and foster mom finds me funny. Foster mom says I am 80% like a balloon on a string and am getting better.

Each night I sleep quietly, but I get up before foster mom. Then I just go outside thru my doggie door and lie on the porch next to the bird feeder. It really annoys the squirrels for me to be in what they consider their space. During the day I just hang out in the house while foster mom is at work. Sometimes I take out the box of Tupperware containers but I don’t chew on any of it. I just set them free all over the house. Most of the time when foster mom gets home I am just snoozing on the back porch.

Car rides are fun and I can jump in the back of a vehicle. I don’t do anything silly while foster mom is driving. I stand behind her with my head on her shoulder while she drives. OK, I can’t help but drool a little bit, but foster mom just puts a towel down.

I love the dog park and play really well with other dogs. When I get really hot, I like to lie down in the kiddie pool. Foster mom says it is ok that I get muddy - she has a towel in the car for clean up. When I’m at the park with other dogs, I’m not aggressive but I am very playful. Some dogs and their humans think I’m too rough. They don’t understand I’m a big guy with lots of energy and love to run, run, run!

A perfect home for me would have someone that would take me to the dog park or take me out for a run every day. I am a really good boy at socializing and have no problem being anywhere with foster mom, including the bank, the gym and to a restaurant for lunch. But I have a typical amount of energy for a young guy and need plenty of exercise every day.

Our adoption fee is $250. Please request an application from

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kermit, 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.
