Occasionally we have adult Alaskan Malamutes available as show prospects or family companions; this is usually due to changing family circumstances or sometimes owners realize the breed is not right for them and they are not well-equipped to properly take care of their Alaskan Malamute. We try to find suitable homes for these dogs so they do not end up in shelters where they are at risk of euthanasia and exposure to infectious disease.
Other times we may have a show prospect that isn’t quite right for our sled team, but may be the perfect dog for another show or pet home. When people are interested in showing, we encourage them to take a young adult rather than a puppy, as the former will be a better show prospect with fewer unknowns.
If you are looking for an adult Alaskan Malamute, please use our questionnaire and we will get in touch. When you acquire an adult dog, you can expect an adjustment period—changing households is stressful. We recommend safe confinement- both inside and out, and the use of dog crates (providing the Alaskan Malamute with its ‘own quiet space’ to eat, sleep & relax). New dogs should *not* be given run of the house or left unsupervised in the home. Prospective owners should be willing to take their new Alaskan Malamute through a 6 week training course for basic obedience & manners to strengthen the bond between the dog & its new owner.
