                      If you are interested in a dog on this list, please go to the Online Adoption Screening Form above, fill it out completely and submit it.  Once it is received, you will be "in the system" and will be contacted via email about the dog you are interested in.  Please be aware that the dog you are interested in may not be a good fit for your circumstances.  We will discuss this with you so you understand what is the best for you and the dog. 

Please be patient. Not all dogs available are listed on the website.  When a dog becomes available we first contact people that have submitted applications if the dog is suited to their household.

 

Again if you are serious about adopting an Alaskan Malamute please have a bit more patience than the breed itself, we are sure that the right dog will become available. 

We have tried to keep our adoption fees as low as possible, but due to the lack of foster homes we have kenneling fees along with the escalating prices of routine medical care, spaying and neutering of large dogs we need to require an adoption fee of    $ 350.00 - $ 500.00.  The fees do vary depending on the age and costs of the dog.

If you are unable to adopt but would like to make a donation to help us care and find homes for these dogs, you may make a secure online  donation using a credit card or check.  We are a non profit corporation but we are not a 501c3 and unfortunately the donations are not tax deductible.   Every little bit does help.  

THANK YOU !

 

 MUSH and the rescues would like to thank everyone who have made donations this year and we hope you will continue to give your financial support, but if this is not possible, please think about fostering.  Each rescue is unique in their situations, but loving dogs none the less.  If they aren't the dog for you, please tell others you feel may be interested.    We still find ourselves in a position where we must keep this urgent request for financial assistance.  As mentioned above we are a not for profit organization, but unfortunately not a 501c where your donations are tax deductible, but we hope you will find it in your hearts to give whatever you can to help us continue to save others.

 Carlos  3mth old male

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Carlos is approx 3 mths old and 21 lbs.  Here is what his foster mother has to say about him.  Carlos is very smart, extremely confident and pretty much fearless. He’s also got a wicked little mouth on him and we’ve spent a lot of time trying to impress upon him how he should/shouldn’t use his mouth. Some of this is normal puppy stuff, of course, but he seems like a dog that will always try to challenge his people if he thinks he can get away with it and one who does not like to be told “no.” He was horrible with being held/restrained when we first brought him home but has learned to tolerate it for the most part. He doesn’t like it but he knows he has no choice in the matter. He loves belly rubs but isn’t a fan of being brushed so we’re working on that too. He grabs everything under the sun when we’re out on walks, so he’s very accustomed to me taking stuff out of his mouth. I think he’ll shine when it comes to obedience training; he’s very food motivated and we’re working on the basics, including some impulse control. He also loves toys and will (adorably) go on walks carrying a stuffed toy. He does, however, seem to “track” the toys that he thinks belong to him when my other dogs play with them, so I suspect he will not be willing to share well as he matures. As far as other dogs, he’s played with all shapes and sizes and has done really well with everyone. I’ve had him play with other dogs almost every day, either one-on-one or as part of the play groups. He can keep up with big dogs without a problem but a Chihuahua told him off yesterday and he accepted it. He knows better than to mess with two of my adult females and has shown appropriate self-preservation skills when he’s tried to push the envelope with them. My read is I think he will end up being a high ranking dog but one who is still social with other dogs. He loves water in every form and will sit it in, splash in it, put his face in it. Last, crate training is going well.

 

Carlos still needs to be neutered and he is about due for his third DHPP which will be done prior to adoption.

 Rocky 7 yr - 8 yr old male

 

 

 

 

                ADOPTED

Rocky is approx 7 - 8 yrs old.  Rocky is a very shy one, he will tolerate petting, and when he is more secure in a home with one on one attention he will come around even further but it will take time and patience.
 

He does pull alot on the leash and in true malamute form would rather go a different way than the walker but he will relax to a certain extent and go with the flow, still pulling though.

Rocky actually does respond better when he is on the leash, and he likes his treats.  He seems to be fine with other females but no males !

Rocky is also crate trained and in the Sacramento area.

Lola is a large ( 90lbs )  18mth old female red and white malamute.  She is loving and affectionate, knows some  commands,  is housebroken, and loves to be brushed.  She was surrendered to the shelter because she didn't get along  with their other large female.  Lola  has been in a new home but she has proven to be a bit more than they were looking for.  Lola is quite energetic and needs plenty of exercise.  She has also has some separation anxiety.  She would love to have a male companion but those introductions will need to be done slowly, she is a dominant female and does react to other dogs.  Lola would love a home that will devote their time to her.  She would make a wonderful companion from hiking to laying around watching TV!

Sitka  2 yr old male

 

 

           ADOPTED

 

We have Sitka listed as 2 yrs old but the vet thinks he could be younger.  He is a big boy at 110lbs, and approximately 30" at the shoulder.  He also has a shorter coat.

 

He is leash trained, very mannerly, no jumping or anything like that, very laid back. He is one that will play ball with you but if you are just sitting there he will sit there beside you. He loves to be with his humans. 

Sitka will not be placed with cats or in a rural area, he likes chickens too much for that.

If you are an active person who is looking for that extra large boy and can give him the attention he needs, Sitka may be the one for you !

 TOBY   9mth old  Male

 

 

 

 

 Toby is 9 months old and weighing in at a healthy 80 pounds.  He is neutered, has been chipped, and is up to date on all of his shots. He has successfully completed the vet sponsored puppy socialization class as well as two obedience classes. 
He is great with many commands, such as "sit, down, stay, leave it, take it and wait", but is quite stubborn and still has some room for improvement with "come, heel, drop it and settle down."  He has lots of energy and is accustomed to two one-hour walks every day, but it takes a firm hand to keep him under control, he's quite mouthy and stubborn.
 

He sleeps well through the night in his kennel but struggles to behave in the house, again the mouthing issue but he does not chew on furniture and is housebroken.  He reacts well to other dogs of all sizes and breeds, if they don't try to dominate him, but does not do well with cats.   Toby would do well in a home that will have the patience, strength and stamina to complete his training and deal with the mouthing issue.

 

Toby is currently in Sacramento area
