Blitzen's Story...
Meet Blitzen! This big handsome man spent months at a shelter. For some reason, he kept getting passed up :( Sophie's Circle was asked to pull him hoping we would have a better chance at finding him a home. "Blitz" likes car rides and is great with kids! He calms down after initial excitement with new people. He doesn't bark, and he loves to chase a ball! His favorite things are long walks and snuggles. He is a big boy (about 85 pounds) and is 1 1/2 years old.

From his foster mom:
He is good on a leash and loves, loves, loves walks and playing with balls and toys in the backyard. He has a lot of energy.

He is very quiet - rarely barks. One woof in the back yard yesterday and then quite a display (appropriately so) when a man crossed the street diagonally and headed toward us. He doesn't lunge at dogs, bikes, people, cars, or cats when we are walking....squirrels are a whole other story!

He is very loving and understands boundaries (he could get into so much, given his height, but he doesn't). We're working on "off" (jumps up on people sometimes and sometimes puts his paws on the counter, being nosy). A 5 and 7 year old stopped by on Sunday and he was fine (typical) with them! :)

He doesn't react to his name or basic words (walk, treat, eat, outside, car ride), let alone any commands. His hearing is fine, though. He is learning "leave it" and "no" quite easily. He is not food or toy aggressive - and he let me retrieve a sock from deep in his mouth without blinking an eye (snatched it pre-walk and ran, our first night...doesn't do that anymore).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Blitzen, a New Smyrna Beach 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 New Smyrna Beach, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute dog from a breeder in New Smyrna Beach.

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