Ask About Lily

Meet Lily

Lily is living in a foster home. Submit an application from our website and then make an appointment to meet her.

Lily is not eligible for foster and will be a straight adoption.

Age: ~3.5 years
Weight: ~79lbs
Housebroken: No, Lily will need work on this through a strict schedule and positive reinforcement training. Her pottying accidents typically stem from anxiety of being left alone.
Crate trained: No, Lily doesn't love the crate and has instead been left with free roam to a sectioned off area when her fosters have left her alone. She does have some separation anxiety and will take time to settle. She will need an adopter that doesn't have shared walls and can continue to work on training for this.
Dog sociability: Selective with her dog friends. May be a match for some, but not all. She is protective over resources and would prefer not to live in a home with another dog. While on walks, Lily is leash frustrated and eager to meet other dogs. She will howl and pulls strongly towards other dogs
Cat sociability: Not a match
Kids: Not a match
Ideal home: Lily is looking for a calm, adult-only home that is home often (during normal times, not just COVID) as she has separation anxiety. She prefers a quiet neighborhood and is not a match for a high-rise/elevator building.

Calling all malamute lovers. Lily is one majestic pup looking for her forever home! She's smart, stoic, and sometimes sassy... your typical malamute. She's very calm and relaxed inside, and just loves being in the comfort of the same room as her humans. If she cuddles up next to you, consider yourself the lucky one! This girl needs patience, but she'll warm up in no time... the fastest way to her heart is through belly rubs and hot dogs. She loves learning new tricks to keep her mind sharp. She knows sit, shake, down, and is working on play dead (bang). Her fosters have a lot of fun working on a new trick each week, she's very smart and will do anything for a treat! She's working on potty training. Like clockwork, she starts her day at 7:30am. Her signals are very subtle, and she's very polite. If this girl sits for you, it's go-time. She loves long walks and is great on a leash. This girl would LOVE a backyard to zoom around off leash in. She'll chase after a tennis ball but don't expect her to bring it back. She'd rather run circles in the snow, and sniff out hidden treats. She hasn't quite learned the second half of fetch yet. Overall this girl is a very loving and loyal companion. There's nothing like the love of a malamute.

Lily's adoption fee has been sponsored by her foster mom! She is spayed, up to date on core vaccines, microchipped and heartworm negative.

***We are receiving a much higher than usual number of adoption applications. We ask that you please be patient and someone will be in touch via email within 72 hours. Please do not email us unless you have not received a response in 72 hours. Please only fill out one adoption application. ***
