This gorgeous girl is one of a kind and looking for a very special family to make her own.

Very affectionate, Marli would like someone up for cuddles, pats and who will tell her regularly how awesome she is.  

While initially this sweet girl may be unsettled in new situations, with simple guidance, empathy and direction, she adjusts quickly and will happily take over the couch.   

Due to her anxiety, Marli will need a very patient, routine based home that can give her the stability she thrives in.   She is an absolute clown that delights in engaging with her people.

Marli is used to being around kids, but due to her size, any little ones and their parents must be experienced with both the breed and managing their interactions.

Like a typical Mally girl, Marli can be very selective in her canine companions.  For this reason, she will do best in an only dog environment with an experienced handler as she can occasionally be reactive on lead.  She needs a secure yard and access to inside when the family is home.

If you meet Marli's requirements and have the patience, experience and space for this amazing Malamute in your life, please apply!
