   Bolt has been adopted!   

Bolt will require:

  • A home that has had experience with owning a Malamute
  • Any children to be in their teens
  • No cats, pocket pets or other animals
  • A home as an only dog, or he may be okay with a female dog of similar size
  • Daily walks, always on lead
  • A reasonably large yard with grass areas for digging and an undercover area for shelter
  • Fences and gates will need to be at least 6 foot high, secure and dig-proof
  • Ongoing training to build his confidence

Please do not apply unless you meet all Bolt's requirements

A big fella with a heart of gold, Bolt is very confused about life at the moment and is looking for a stable, calm home to rest his huge paws.

He is a typically aloof Mallie boy that is selective with his fellow canine companions.  He gets stressed and scared in new environments easily and needs a patient, supportive family that will help him be brave without being a boofhead.

Bolt walks beautifully on lead and takes direction well.  He doesn’t quite know how to behave with other dogs - he wants to play, he doesn’t want to, he’s excited, he’s scared, he’s a teenage boy that wants to show how macho he is, he finds puppies scary!  He needs a Malamute experienced home that can help him thrive with appropriate guidance.  When he is feeling happy and comfortable, he loves to play rough and tumble with his humans and will happily body slam you all day long, along with granting them cuddles and woowoo’s.

Bolt is a very vocal boy, so he needs neighbours that are not bothered by his very loud voice.  He appears to have some separation anxiety, so will need a family committed to helping him regain his independence. 

Bolts size, age and enthusiasm makes him unsuitable for homes with small children or animals.  He needs a secure yard and his preference is to be the only dog.  There is the chance he may be suitable with a calm, confident Malamute female.

Bolt is currently in a kennel environment and would love to move into a foster or adoptive home ASAP.  If you meet all his requirements and have got what it takes to help this big guy, apply today. 

Bolt is not available for interstate adoption, and is not suitable for apartments, rural properties or residences with a small yard space.  Experience with Malamute ownership is essential.
