Rescue Me ID: 16-09-23-00464Artemis (female)

Alaskan Malamute    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Artemis. She is a pure bread Alaskan Malamute and will be 6 yrs old this November. She weights 110lbs and is considered to be of healthy weight. She IS spayed, but has Hypothyroidism. This means she takes 2 pills a day; one in the morning and one in the evening. This helps regulate her weight and keep her coat beautiful. She is up to date on all of her shots, and records can be obtained per request. She is on a grain free diet; specifically she eats Whole Earth Farms grain free formula. We are her original owners, and purchased her from Cascade Kennels in Washington State. Artemis is very loving to her people; loves to roll over and ... (Read More)get her belly rubbed and she will cuddle in bed or on the couch if you allow her up. As per malamute personality, she is a talker. She will howl or whine if left alone, or if separated from her people. When she is separated, she does not eat the walls or d̩cor. However, if you leave dishes in the sink or butter on the counter and she is left alone'|.she will pull dishes out and lick them clean or eat the Tupperware and butter. Artemis is very food motivated, but has never harmed a human over her food. She will grumble if someone or another dog is trying to mess with her as she eats, but again doesn't react physically to a human. It is possible that she will snarl at another dog that comes up as she eats, but she has never attacked. This behavior eases over time as she gets to know the other animals in the home. She has moved with us several times, and adjusted to new animals throughout the various moves, so I am confident she will adjust well in her placement. When it comes to cats, she does quite well once she gets to know them. She was raised with cats and small dogs, but Artemis is an Alpha female. She will grumble at other dogs for a while, and then adjusts nicely. However, she will want to rule the roost. Her Alpha tendencies have improved since getting spayed, but the behavior still lingers at times. She is incredibly strong and stubborn, but does well on a leash (I don't suggest a harness due to it making her think she is supposed to pull). Artemis isn't sure about small children. She will grumble at them and walk away if she doesn't want to be bothered, but she never has harmed a child. Artemis likes her own space in the house. She tends to curl up in corners where it is coolest or a breeze is available. So I would suggest a bed filled with cedar shavings, otherwise there is a chance she will destroy a fluff filled bed. She loves treats (no real surprise there) but absolutely LOVES stuffed dog toys with a squeaker inside. While they won't last very long (destruction of the squeaker becomes her goal in life) but she acts like a puppy during the process. Artemis, like most dogs, loves walks. She used to run beside my husband on his bike as well, though she could use some work on this practice since it has been so long. She absolutely loves to ride in the car and stick her head out the window, as long as you don't mind slobber running down the side of your car. At dog parks, she does well off leash. She tends to just roam around on her own and doesn't really care about the other dogs. She loves walking in tall grass and will remain close and respond when called. When it comes to bathing, she hates water. She will struggle with you, and her size makes it difficult. However, she does well at the groomer (go figure.) But always request that she not be blow dried. The sound makes her anxious and difficult. We love Artemis very much, but she needs more time and space than we can offer her. When we originally got her, we had 3 acres of land to let her run. Now we are in a town house with no fenced yard, causing her to get bored. We understand the needs for a Malamute of her size, which is why we are seeking someone with plenty of space and time so that she can live the full life that she deserves. Giving her up is extremely difficult for us, and we wish we didn't have to. If possible, we would like updates from her new home; pictures via email. Please contact me via email or text for more information (Less)

    He will be four years old on Nov 9th, he is fixed and has been to all his checkups and had all his shots. He is fantastic with other dogs, both big and small. The only time there has been an issues was with other males that were not fixed. He is getting better with chickens but has has issues in the past and cat are just a no. He is one of the friendliest dogs I have ever met, he has a special affection for children. We go on a 45 minute walk ever morning and he has always had room to run and get that extra energy out. He is not kennel trained, but he is ridiculously smart and with a big enough kennel I'm sure he could figure it out. He is ...

PIease Read Before Adopting an Alaskan Malamute in Oregon
    Alaskan Malamute Dogs can make good pets in Oregon 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.
