Adopt an animal

Shadow

Age: 9 yearsSex: MaleBreed: Alaskan Malamute xAdoption fee: £150.00

Shadow is a sweet old lad who came to us via an inspector after his previous owner no longer wanted him, we have found him to be an absolute sweetheart whilst he has been here at the centre. He just loves to be with you and loves getting lots of attention and cuddles. Shadow unfortunately has some arthritis in his hips and back for which he is on medication for, he gets tired on his walks so we are looking for adopters who will be able to take him on a couple of smaller walks rather than one long walk. Shadow loves his walks and loves to get out and about and meet new people, he really is a great big softee.

We are looking for adopters who will not leave him on his own for long periods as he has never been taught it is ok to be left, he is best suited to a home where he is the only dog although he is good with most dogs out on a walk so long as they leave him alone. He does not like it when they become excited and boisterous around him. He can live with children aged 10 years and over.
