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.

      Location: Negaunee, MI
      Posted Breed: Siberian Husky. "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Benjy is a happy-go-lucky male 10 year old Husky mix. But don't tell Benjy that he is a senior...he acts much younger! He is at UPAWS with three other dogs due to a family move. He is such a nice boy who wants to please his people pals. He will let you know when someone is at the door with a bark and would be a good dog for someone he lives alone or a family who lives in a country area. He likes his people and family and he does get along with other dogs. He has been known to want to give a chase to the family cat, so we do not recommend a home with cats for Benjy. He doesn't appear to know too many commands but he does now sit and he is housetrained. Like we said, Benjy may be 10 years old but he has a spring in his step, likes to run and play and loves walks and car rides. At night and down-time, he likes to snuggle up on the couch with you and watch a little TV at night! Doesn't that sound great! Adopt Benjy today! Golden Paws Rate $50. Please share!

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Meet our newest office doggy commander-in-“Chief”. We recognized that Chief is a people “person” more than a dog “person”, so we’ve given him a very important task away from the kennels during his stay at UPAWS… He is now in charge of brining smiles to our office staff and greeting visitors with gusto. If you step past our office door your sure to be met with his wide, silly, smile and a very happy tail wag. If your lucky you might even be gifted a toy to toss around with him too! Chief has shown us that he is a polite boy and while he is in the office he settles very well and enjoys snoozing on a nice soft bed while all of his people pals work. The best part of having Chief share our office is that he knows when to recognize that it is time for a break! He will happily bring over a toy, or a tug rope, for a quick game to keep your spirits up. After playing for a couple of minutes, he is happy to settle down again. We love this boy and we are sure that you will too! Chief wants to be an only furchild, but he may enjoy sharing his home with older respectful children (because of his exuberance for play- he may be too much for very young children). If you have questions about Chief, or if you think he may be a great addition to your family, please call our staff at 906-475-6661. Adoption Sponsorship from Tinos Bar and Pizza of Negaunee. Also from Michael Zakosek. FEE-WAIVED rate. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

      Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Negaunee, MI
      Posted Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Zeus is a Deb's Dog of the Month. His adoption will include a large bag of food and a vet voucher for a check up exam. Sponsored adoption rate is now $25. Zeus is a very sweet 3 year old, mixed breed dog. While his true breed is unknown, we think that he has a diverse background. His wrinkley face and sensitive skin and belly make us believe that he has Shar-pei in his family tree and his athleticism suggests that he may have terrier in his heritage too. He gets along with most everyone, including dogs and children. Zeus loves walks, his people pals and is a very loving dog. We ask that you meet him outside of the kennel settings as the kennel makes him nervous and he doesn't show his true, sweet self. He has food allergies so he eats a high quality, grain free, brand with a fish based or other unique protein. UPAWS can recommend some good brands that will work well. Zeus is a terrific boy and once you meet him, you'll know why. Open you heart and come out to UPAWS and add this wonderful fellow to your family. *No cats for Zeus. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) I don't how to describe Bruce in a way that will garner the interest he deserves. I've fostered Bruce for three months now and it has been an absolute pleasure. Bruce is a smart, sweet, fun, loving, and loyal dog. He makes me smile and laugh every day. I cannot keep Bruce at this time, but I want to help him find his forever home. When I met Bruce we weren't sure if he would welcome guests into my home, but he now welcomes company with ease. Bruce can be a frustrated greeter with some dogs, but recently he has been walking by other dogs and minding his own business like a champ. He is eager to please and is a very good boy. If you want to meet Bruce you can arrange to meet him just about anywhere as he is part of the Adoption Ambassador program. Because I've known Bruce for a good while now I can answer any questions you might have about him so you will know if he is the right dog for your family. Bruce will always have a place in my heart and I know he will find one in yours too. Call 475-6661 to set up a time to meet Bruce today. Sincerely, Bruce's Foster Mom WEBSITE: www.upaws.org
