Alaskan Malamute, Crossbreed | 7 years old



Topsy is a sweet, gentle older girl who is looking for a comfy home to retire to. She is looking for adopters who will give her lots of attention but also her own space to rest and recharge. She is happy to jump into the car to go off on mini adventures. She plods along nicely on her lead. Topsy is a little overweight so will need her exercise built up gradually. Topsy is ok to walk alongside other quiet dogs who will happily ignore her. She meets and greets politely, but she does not want much in the way of interaction. She is house trained, and she knows a 'sit'. Topsy initiates and enjoys a fuss. She is instantly friendly with everyone she meets, apart from the vet!

Type of home needed

Topsy is looking for a comfy, loving home where she will be treated like a queen. She could share her home with older teenage children, fourteen-years plus and she is looking to be the only pet in the home. Experience with the breed is a bonus, but not essential. She could cope with a reasonably busy household. Topsy is currently relaxing in a foster home.
