SHAKIRA
Gender: Female
Age: 8 year old
Breed: Alaskan Malamute
Pair: No
Special Needs: No
Only Dog: Yes

Shakira (previously Chakra) is a sweet 8 yo Malamute girl who is looking for a kind & loving family. She is a gentle soul that yearns affection and a place to call home.

At the moment, Shakira can find the outside world super exciting as everything is a new experience! She is keen to go everywhere and sniff everything, preferably all at once, so she can be a bit distracted and can pull on the lead. That being said, she is a very smart girl that is keen to learn.

Shakira would flourish with a confident and gentle handler that will put the time into her socialisation, and is willing to attend obedience training. Baby steps and loads of affection is the way to go!

It appears that Shakira has not had exposure to other dogs in the past, so she can get excited when she sees other dogs and at times they can also be overwhelming to her. Shakira is not ready to share her home with other canine friends, but we are hopeful this could change once she is exposed and socialised with other dogs at the local obedience school.

Shakira can be skittish and she is easily startled by sudden movements or sounds, so for this reason she will need an adult household that is calm, patient and willing to nurture her confidence.

As with any Malamute, she will need a reasonable sized yard with 6 foot high secure fencing and gates, and of course due to the arctic breed prey drive she can never be walked off lead.

Are you the special person that will give Shakira the home she deserves?

Shakira will need:
- Ongoing obedience training
- A home with adults only or older children well into their teens
- A reasonably large yard with very secure, dig-proof 6 foot fencing
- A home with no other dogs or cats

**Havoc is on trial in a new home!**

Havoc
Alaskan Malamute
3 years Old
Male

Havoc will need:

- a home experienced with large arctic breed dogs
- a securely fenced yard of a reasonable size
- any children to be at least in their teens
- no cats, small dogs or pocket pets
- ongoing obedience training

If you meet Havoc's needs, then read on:

Woah! Want a whole lotta dog!

Havoc is a whole lotta fluff, a whole lotta spunk and a whole lotta Malamute! This stunning young man is looking for a new home that will take him on adventures, daily walks (as he’s got a little bit of winter pud, like the best of us!) and not let him charm you with his handsomeness into ruling the house.

He’s an easygoing fella that has lived with an Arctic female before, but he’s no pushover and any potential canine housemate needs to a similar sized dog that is confident with him, but not bossy. Havoc has had some success with resource guarding, so any new family needs to be able to proactively manage and work on reducing this behaviour. Experience with a large, stubborn arctic breed dog is essential.

Havoc gets super excited when there is the potential for fun or new friends to meet, so needs to work on his self control and good manners. Weekly obedience classes will sharpen this skills in no time, while also improving his confidence.

Due to his size and lack of exposure to young children, Havoc needs to go to a home where any children are secondary school aged. He also isn’t a fan of cats, so he can't go to a home where there are smaller pets. He needs a large, secure yard, access to inside when his humans are home and a family that is committed to a balanced training approach. He is not available for interstate adoption.

So, are you ready for a little Havoc in your life?
