Meet Ally

**Cat-friendly Malamute**

Ally (formerly known as Alee May), born in May 2017 has had more sadness than a puppy should endure. Born on an Amish puppy mill farm, at 6 weeks of age she broke her front leg. Of course, the puppy miller decided to shoot her since he believed no one would purchase her. A young couple paid the farmer full price and tried to save her leg. Sadly, in September 2017 her front right leg was amputated. Not having Malamute experience, the young couple did not realize Malamutes have natural predatory behavior and same-gender aggression. Ally began fighting with her pet parent's small dogs. She was adopted to her second home with nine other Northern Breed dogs. Then her mom died unexpectedly and now she is with CHAAMP.

Ally weighs 53 lbs. and is thin but her foster mom is making sure she gradually gains some weight. She could possibly live with a mellow male dog. She is crate trained and loves to cuddle up in your lap. She is very sweet and affectionate and wants to be loved.

Dogs do amazingly well on 3 legs. As most dogs bear 60% of their weight in the front when they have 4 legs, there are exercises to strengthen the rear legs. It is very important to exercise Ally's back legs on a daily basis. Also, to keep her joints healthy, we recommend keeping Ally on glucosamine/chondroitin supplements. Sardines in spring water is a great source of Omega's, too.
