Achilles's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Achilles's Story...
Well hello there!

My name is Achilles and I am a stunning Alaskan Malamute. I am currently 79 lbs and I will most likely reach 85 - 90 lbs at least, since I am just under a year old now. I probably won't get any taller. I will just fill out some until I reach two years old or so.

I am dog friendly, love all people and I don't really want to bother with cats. I will be more thoroughly tested with cats if you have cats in your home, so please let us know on your application if you do.

I am doing great with crate training at my foster home and working on house training. I haven't had one accident yet, but they're keeping a close eye on me. I will be an amazing dog for someone that has had Malamutes in the past or has researched my breed. We can be stubborn and headstrong, so we love when our humans are assertive with us and act as our pack leader. If you think you would be the perfect family for me and would like to meet me, please submit an application online at!

*Achilles' adoption fee is $350.00 (out of state transport fee may apply). He is UTD on vaccinations, heart worm negative, on preventative, neutered and micro-chipped.

**An application and home visit are required. Transport can potentially be arranged to approved homes. Please ask us for more information if you are not in Tennessee**

**All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have.

Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heart-worm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption.

Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Achilles, a Columbia 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 Columbia, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute dog from a breeder in Columbia.

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