Gino's Story...

This handsome guy is a 3-year-old (95lb) Alaskan Malamute who came to Best Friends as an older puppy for killing chickens when he was living outside. This sweet guy is fine with other large dogs and older kids (due to his size), but please no cats or small dogs or other small critters!

He is a strong, lovable, BIG boy! On volunteers sleepovers "He's housetrained, some obedience training, loves stuffed toys, but shied from men with cigarettes. Very curious, loyal, quiet, tries to be a lap dog! Food is the way to his heart!" On his behavior testing "He needs more handling (a bit mouthy) and more basic obedience training due to his size and thus older kids are recommended." This guy is amazing! He so deserves a loving home!

Please understand that Gino is currently at Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah. You will need to contact Kristi for more information and to make arrangements to meet Gino. Please call: (435) 644-2001 ext. 210 or email:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gino, a Southern California Alaskan Malamute/Siberian Husky dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Alaskan Malamute/Siberian Husky for sale in Southern California, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute/Siberian Husky dog from a breeder in Southern California.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Southern California 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 Southern California 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/Siberian Husky breeders who help with Alaskan Malamute/Siberian Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Southern California paves the way for another one to be saved.
