Hey there everyone! I'm Polar! Not sure how I got that name as I came from the southern states. I guess the people at the shelter thought I needed a more "northern" name. That's right, I came from a loooong distance to Moonsong because no other rescues in my area could help and Moonsong wasn't going to let me die. Plus they have an amazing volunteer they call Superman and he drove many, many miles to come save me and transport me all the way back to WY and then I hitched a ride to Boise, ID. What a journey!
I'm a young guy - between one and two years old. I do know "sit", but don't have a lot of other commands in my repertoire yet. I'm working on "down", but don't really understand why I need to lay down for a treat, since I sit so pretty for them. I'm a high energy guy and like to pull and be out front on walks, but after a few minutes I can settle down a little and not pull so hard. I've been told I'm really strong and would be a good candidate for pulling sports like skijoring, bikejoring, etc. I just need a little training. I can be a little reactive when I see dogs - I just want to go meet them! I am in play groups where I am being boarded and I really like that! I get along with the other dogs and just ignore anyone trying to start trouble.
I had a foster home for a few days and really enjoyed that! I really hadn't spent much time inside a home before and only had a couple accidents. As you can see in my photo gallery, I really enjoyed the couch! I also enjoy snuggling with my human and can be a big lap dog. I would really like another foster home or better yet my "furever" home! If you're up for fostering or adopting a sweet, active, handsome Malamute, please get in touch with my "agent" below!
Polar is a very sweet boy who would really benefit from some one on one attention and training in a foster home while he waits for his future adoptive family. Polar is heartworm positive, but has been thoroughly checked out and has no issues with his heart. He is on a monthly preventative medication after the initial medications. He will need to be checked again in a few months until his heartworm test is negative, which could take a year or two. He is not contagious to other dogs and would likely do well with another young playful female dog about his size.
