RIO - Adoption Pending's Story...
Howdy everyone, my name is Rio and I'm a big, tall boy in need of a new home. I loved my other home - I had lived there since I was a puppy, but due to circumstances beyond my control, I couldn't stay with my family anymore. I'm a young guy - about 22 months old and everyone says I'm the biggest Mal they've ever seen. I tip the scales at around 130.

Some say I still act like a puppy and need to learn some manners. I just like having fun! If you have treats I will "sit" and "down" for you. I like to play with other dogs, but can be kind of intimidating to some because of my size. I wouldn't mind having a large furry friend to hang out with in my new home. Since I like to play with my mouth and paws a lot, I would be best in a home without children younger than 12. I'm also a big chewer, so you'd better be prepared with lots of Extreme Kongs!

I ride well in cars and enjoy walks, but do find biting at the leash is a fun pastime. I could use a little more work on my leash etiquette. Are you ready for a Giant Mal in your life?

Note: Obedience training is a must for Rio to work on his manners and puppy like behavior.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

RIO - Adoption Pending, a Boise 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 Boise, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute dog from a breeder in Boise.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boise 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 Boise 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 Boise paves the way for another one to be saved.
