Alaskan Malamute Mix Dog for adption in Augusta County, Virginia - Neko

Neko's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

Neko's Story...
Neko: For the month of March, Neko’s adoption fee is only $125. He’s neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative and on preventative.
Neko has been with us since 4-25-12. From Kansas, Neko and his partner Mallory (who has been adopted, now Maya) were removed from a bad situation. Terribly underweight, unsocialized and frightened, it took Neko a while to acclimate to us. Once he realizes you’re not going to hurt him, and that you’re the person who doles out the food and treats, Neko becomes your best buddy. Heartworm positive, Neko recovered from treatment and is in good health. In his 6 years, Neko has not had an easy life. He deserves a chance to sleep in a soft bed, and live a life treated with respect. If you have a secure fenced yard, or a pet safe basement/garage, that is going to be Neko’s preference of where to hang out while you aren’t home. He is not going to tolerate a crate. Typical Malamute, Neko cannot live with cats, male dogs, nor other small pets. A large boy at 80+ lbs, we cannot adopt Neko to a home with small children as he’d likely knock a child over. Chances are he would need to be the only pet in the household.

Hi, my name is Neko. I came in with my sister Mallory, all the way from Kansas. At first I don’t trust people. You can’t blame me, I’ve not had an easy 5 years. Once I get to know you, I’m a big teddy bear. It’s best if I’m the only pet in the household. Plus, I’m a big guy so you’d need a large house. My last place I was tied outside, and didn’t get fed very often. Then a darn mosquito bit me, and I tested positive for heartworm. Once I got to the rescue, I was treated and the medicine took care of the worms. I think I’d like it best if I could be outside during the day while you are at work, and come inside at night to spend time with you.

About Alaskan Malamute Rescue of Delaware

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of dedicated volunteers saving the lives of Alaskan Malamutes. We pull Mals from shelters that euthanize, accept owner release Malamutes and help educate the public on the characteristics of Malamutes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are all volunteers. Our dogs are with fosters or in boarding kennels. Arrangements are made to meet them by appointment once your application has been processed and your home visit completed.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an application which requires references, including a vet reference. If you rent, we require written permission from your Landlord allowing you to adopt a Malamute. Once we receive your application, it is processed and then we arrange a home visit. Upon completion, you are invited to meet the Mals. From you application we generally have a good idea of which dog suits you. Our adoption contract states that if something should happen, the dog is returned to us. Our adoption fee is $225 for an adult and higher for a puppy under one year. All of our Mals are healthy, up to date on shots, spayed/neutered, and heartworm negative.
