Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant

    Max is a DOGS FOREVER dog who was adopted in January of 2013 by a family in Merrill Wisconsin because they wanted both an indoor family dog and a sled dog. He performed well in sanctioned mushing competitions (both winters) but due to his tendency toward dominance (particularly toward other large male dogs) they have now decided to relinquish him. Prior to his adoption, Max struggled psychologically in our SAFE PLACE shelter (which is relatively small and does not have outdoor runs). He was temporarily in foster care but because of his size (42' length) and high energy level, he was able to escape from the fenced-in yard. Note: Max could ... (Read More)be in a home without a fence if the foster parent is dog-experienced. Max's ideal owner would be a runner/sledder/musher/drylander as he needs daily exercise. Max does not do well in a shelter environment and ideally should be a home WITHOUT another male dog as he has occasionally demonstrated an alpha nature his current dominant male sibling (but he gets along with his current female canine siblings). Despite his love of running outdoors, Max is not an outdoor dog; he very much wants to be with his human(s). Although Max lived affably the first 2 years of his life with a child equal in age and a submissive female dog, he is now living in a home with two teenage children and a dominant male Boxer with whom he has butted heads. Therefore he is being relinquished back to DOGS FOREVER on Saturday, May 10. Our foster homes are full. Note: we know that Max is an Afghan Hound / Alaskan Malamute mix because both of his parents (and his sibling sister) live here in Cedar Rapids. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Alaskan Malamute in Iowa
    Alaskan Malamute Dogs can make good pets in Iowa if they match your IifestyIe. The Alaskan Malamute is an extremely friendly, large breed. Alaskan Malamutes are wonderful with older children. Alaskan Malamutes like to roam outside and need a large yard or acreage. Fences should be high with a buried base, since Alaskan Malamutes like to dig and can get out easily. The Alaskan Malamute is rowdy as a puppy but calms down as an adult dog. Human companionship is important as Alaskan Malamutes can get into trouble and ruin property if not given enough attention. Alaskan Malamutes need to be socialized with children and other dogs at an early age. Alaskan Malamutes, especially males, can be very dominant and may fight with other dogs if not exposed to them when young.
