More About Alaskan Malamute Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Siberian Husky
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Siberian Husky (medium coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) If this pretty lady drew your attention, it’s only natural. This is Mira, a purebred Siberian Husky gal who was born in 2013. She is an active girl searching for an active home. It will be essential for her to find a companion that can keep her mentally and physically stimulated. She will need a calm and patient owner who has the time to help her be the best canine citizen she can be. Mira takes time to warm up to new people, especially to men. Mira will do best with slow dog to dog introductions as she likes some dogs over others. If you lead an active life and can keep this gal busy then maybe he could be the companion for you. Once she bonds with you, you have a pal for life. Call 906-475-6661 for more information on Mira if you have more questions. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

      Breed: Saint Bernard
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Saint Bernard (long coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Do you have a spacious home that is feeling a bit empty? Frankie might be the man for you. Frankie is a sweet 6 year old boy who is looking for a home with dog savvy adults. He loves HIS people fiercely, but is slow to warm up to strangers. Because of his large size, a home that understands the costs of feeding, vet care, and day to day maintenance that comes along with a gentle giant is ideal. With patience and persistence, Frankie will come to love you as much as he loves us, but once he gets comfortable he does need guidance on what is appropriate and not appropriate behavior. If you are a clean freak, this is not the dog for you, but if you are looking for a large snuggly companion, come meet Frankie today. Give UPAWS a call at 906-475-6661 with any additional questions.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Duke likes to be the leader and is quite intelligent, independent, confident and clever. He prefers making his own decisions but will listen to you if you make a good case. He longs to be partners in any adventure. Treat Duke like one and you'll both live happily ever after. Duke is super smart and knows many commands such as sit, lay, shake, roll over, high-five. He gets along with some dogs over others (submissive medium size dogs tend to be best) so bring your dog along for a meet and greet. He will not be placed with cats or small animals. Duke longs for a new owner who will continue to work with him with positive methods - Duke has so much potential for the right person or family. He would thrive as an only pet ideally, with a person or family who is willing to continue him training and take him on some adventures. Duke has been fully sponsored for his adoption fee by U.P. General Contracting. Fully paid rate. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org
