Romeo the giant malamute is a prime example of a life that was clearly endangered by the wolfdog misrepresentation.
He was found in the back of a hot car with no food or water and had been living in those conditions for several days. When the county shelter took him in he was untouchable. Now Romeo is in his new foster home and his prior nervousness and fear has melted away. He cuddles with his foster family at night he waits patiently for his food he listens to commands and even gets along with their dog-savvy cat!

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.
