ADOPTED - Maya's Story...
Maya is a 2 - 3 year old girl that was surrendered due to sad life changes. What a sweetheart. Her foster reports that her tail is always wagging and is always happy to see you and dying for all the loving and attention she can get. She loves to play with other dogs, but is so energetic that her exuberance isn't always appreciated. She is learning better doggy skills. She also is a natural at biking - her foster has been taking her on almost daily runs to get the energy out of her. She walks well on a leash and has some house manners. She also loves any body of water, be it a bucket of water, a puddle, or a lake or a stream. This sweet young girl is a diamond in the rough just waiting for her new forever home to give her all the play dates, walks and runs she craves!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ADOPTED - Maya, a Mt Prospect 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 Mt Prospect, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute dog from a breeder in Mt Prospect.

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