Shayna's Story...

Shayna is a 11 year old Malamute mix looking for a good home that has Mal experience and is not put off by a girl who likes to push the boundaries. For those of you who are long time visitors.............yes.....this is the same Shayna. The Shayna born here at Golden Years back on July 10 2002. She was the only surviving puppy and she was hand raised by Shirley's daughter. Her 1st home lasted about a year and she came back. When we placed her the second time things seemed to be going very well. Then we didn't hear from the folks again. Imagine our shock a couple of years later when somebody we didn't even know contacted us and asked us to come and get her! Turns out Shayna had been bounced around for quite awhile. Shayna had turned into a bit of a stinker but we think it was more of a defense situation. Humans have failed her so many times that she gets grumbly growly and makes the humans nervous so she gets dumped before she gets attached. Sounds like some poor human kids. Shayna is now back in our kennel just waiting for a new home to call her own. She is full of personality and would make a great pet for a retired person or couple. Shayna is a big ball of energy, however she has a malformed hip socket which means she gets limpy after a rough play session or too long of a walk. The older she gets the more she looks like her mother (we placed Nikki several months after Shayna was born) and she has her mother's beautiful sable coat coloring. The best situation for her is as the only pet that is taught fairly but firmly she is not the boss and no matter how big of a stinker she tries to be she still can't be the alpha, ever. She is a lover and has a lot to say (we don't believe half of what she says.....she is not starving!). Could this pretty girl be the Mal for you?

About Our Rescue Group...

Have been involved with malamutes for over 40 years. Started the malamute rescue in 2000 because I saw a need and love the breed. We specialize in older malamutes. We are small and depend on fosters. There is great enjoyment in meeting the different personalities of these dogs and even greater pleasure in the happy endings and new friends made.
