Facts about Achilles

  • Breed: Alaskan Malamute
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
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!

About Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals in rural areas, mainly in 'pounds' and shelters, both high-kill and no-kill. There tends to be a higher overpopulation rate in rural areas due to lack of animal ordinances and alteration to prevent unwanted litters. Many animals are 'dumped' on country roads left to parish or end up at the local pound or animal shelter if they have an empty kennel. Many of these animals have a limited number of days before they are euthanized. In addition to placing animals in foster and adoptive homes, networking with rescues to assist in placement and adoption of animals, RARE also performs fundraisers for spay/neuters and other vetting to prevent further overpopulation and promote quality of life for the animals we save.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees cover all vetting for the animals in our care, including vaccinations, Heart-worm test, Heart-worm treatment if needed, Feline Leukemia test, spay/neuter and may vary, depending on species.

Fosters and Adopters will be required to complete an application with personal and Veterinary references. A home visit is also required.
RESCUES, please contact us regarding pull information or pull fee, if any, depending on vetting already provided by RARE.
