Desmond or Dez for short is a big beautiful boy with a friendly personality. He loves all people he comes in contact with and lives by the motto that a stranger is just a friend you havent met yet. Dez is a sweet goofy boy who is just a big puppy so due to his size Dez would do best in a home with children over the age of 10. He is friendly with other dogs and may do well with another laid back dog his size but also would not mind being the only dog. He would not be a good candidate for a home with cats or other small animals. Dez is housetrained and as a puppy attended puppy training classes so knows his basic commands but he will need some guidance learning not to jump up on people. If you are an experienced malamute owner and looking for your next walking or running partner than Dez may be just right for you!
The adoption fee of $300 includes spay-neuter and all vaccines.
Desmond 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.
