6 Year Old Male Malamute

Bertie is a 6 year old Malamute, he is a really big lad, taller than most of the staff when he decides to give a bear hug! Bertie is finding kennel like quite frustrating and is looking for a patient owner who can understand it may take him some time to relax and settle in a home. When Bertie came to us he mixed well with other dogs but he has become more intolerant as his frustration has built. For this reason he will need to be the only dog in the dog. Bertie needs a confident but calm owner who understands and is keen to use positive reward based training to help Bertie settle. He enjoys his walks but doesn't need a large amount of exercise. He loves toys and is very playful, when he can be bothered! Bertie has a good level of basic training and is housetrained.  Bertie would like an adult only home, used to large dogs.

Whenever dogs comes into our care they are assessed before they are adopted. This is because the majority of our dogs come from Local Authority pounds and with little or no previous history. This initial assessment period allows us to assess temperament, personality and the best match for a new home. We do not work on a first come first served basis but always strive to find the ideal home for each dog.

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to adoption. A homecheck is required, and you will need to come along to the centre to meet the dog with your own dog(s) and family. Our adoption fee is £200.
