Meet Maddie "Cutie Patootie!"

Maddie is our little Miss Cutie Patootie! She is a short and stocky malamute girl with so much personality. She is guaranteed to make you smile every day with her paw up for high fives and zoomies. Maddie was born October 2011. She is easy and independent. She is called a little miss spit fire, because she is a tough little cookie! She is sassy and all malamute. She enjoys being in her crate and doesn't make a peep. Or hanging outside watching everyone and everything. She also enjoys hiking and just loves the outdoors! She is also happy just laying around on her doggy bed and just being in the same room as you. Don't let that adorable teddy bear look fool you, she isn't a cuddler and prefers her space, EXCEPT when salmon treats are involved. She will come right up to you, give you high fives and show so much excitement for treat time! Just give her space and time to get to know you. She had a very rough life and is hesitant to trust people. Despite this, she sits nicely to put her collar on before going on a walk. She also rides well in car but generally speaking, Maddie doesn't just do things willingly, which is why positive training works well for her. KronchUSA salmon treats really help us encourage Maddie to make good choices. She likes to protest a little bit just enough so she feels like she had a choice.

She will roll over for belly rubs and come up to you for some love but when shes had enough she will leave and go about her business. She was potty trained at one time but will need a refresher. She does not like other dogs but can be around them. If given the chance she will let other dogs know she is boss and that's why we recommend her as being the only dog in the home. When you are out on a walk she won't get upset seeing another dog as long as they are behaving. She isn't dog aggressive but won't back down from a challenge either.

In May 2017, Maddie had ACL surgery on her right knee and is doing well. Of note, she was debarked as a pup so she doesn't have her 'woowoo' but don't let that stop you from giving this girl her second chance. She needs a home with Northern Breed experience. She has a strict limited ingredient diet --- salmon only protein and fat. Typical malamute she cannot be around small dogs or pets including cats.
