More walking and apparal to help the Mals! 






Spring is upon us and our dogs are as anxious as we are to get into their forever home.  If you are not able to adopt but can foster, this would be a big help to us as it makes room for another dog for us to bring in.  Click on the dogs name and you will be sent to our Petfinder page with more information and pictures about each dog.  Don't worry, it will open in a separate window so you won't loose us.


Zoey is one pretty girl and an easy Malamute to love! Sadly, her owner lost their home and Zoey isn't able to live in an apartment with them. At 110 lbs, she's a big, happy girl, about 6 years old. She'd do OK on a play date with a large male dog, however she'd prefer to be the only pet in the household. Zoey is house trained, walks well on leash and loves to talk to her humans :)


Klondike is such a sweet, gentle soul! About 18 months old, he walks well on leash, is house trained and is very well behaved. At 95 lbs Klondike won't grow any larger in size, but he will fill out some more.Klondike prefers to be the only pet in the household.



Queen Bear is Princess’ sister and has also made amazing improvements since CHAAMP brought her into rescue.  Queen is in great shape now after losing 20+ lbs and her itchy, icky fur has grown back silky soft.  Queen enjoys her walks but her heart is snuggled up next to you getting kisses and belly rubs.  Queenie will do best with an experienced owner who is consistent yet loving as Queen can be a bit bossy and stubborn but she responds well to positive training using treats and kind patience


Lake is a neutered 2 year old sweet heart. He's a big, strong boy at about 90 lbs and should be the only pet in the household. Since Lake is a young man, he will need a home with plenty of structure and exercise. Lake is eager to please his humans and does well with positive reinforcement training.. Looking for a running partner? Lake would be perfect with those long legs! And Lake loves to ride in the car so if you want to drive him home, please submit an application!

Lilac about 18 months old

Who could resist this cute face?! Lilac is about 2 years old and full of puppy energy. She will need exercise at least twice a day to keep her out of mischief. Very sweet and friendly with people, Lilac greets everyone with a tail wag. Lilac definitely cannot live with cats, nor other dogs of any size. While Lilac has not lived in a house, she does go potty on leash so house breaking should be quick

Colt  Prefers outside.  

Colt was rescued from an abuse case. He's an adorable little guy who has not had much socialization. He will accept human attention, but will not solicit it. Colt is fairly high energy and since he has never been in a house, prefers to be outside. He likes to walk on leash and enjoys being outdoors. He has a mole above his left eye and the tip of his fuzzy right ear is missing - but that makes him even cuter.


Bootsie is a full speed ahead young lady! Boots will require strenuous daily exercise. Quite exhuberant, Boots would love to learn agility, go on long hikes and/or weight pull. Shy at first, Boots quickly warms up and starts zipping around. Very strong for her size, Boots will benefit from positive reinforcement training, and lots of love. She does not do well with other dogs, any size, either gender.

Gandolf - Small

Gandolf is an adorable Alaskan Malamute the size of a small Siberian. Only 35 lbs at intake in August, Gandolf will not get larger in size, but he will add some weight. Gandolf has had his first heartworm treatment. He won't be available for adoption until around the end of September. Gandolf is male dog reactive, and does not like small pets of either gender, including cats. Gandolf should be able to live with a larger, submissive female dog. He walks well on leash and is crate trained.


Princess came to us with ear and yeast infections.  She has really turned around since arriving and has mended well.  Her fur is starting to grow back in and we know she will be a beauty once again very soon. 

Frodo - Small

Frodo has such a striking face! He's about 4 years old, and only weighs 35 lbs at this time. Frodo will not get larger in size, but he will gain some much needed weight. Frodo has had his first heartworm treatment. He won't be available for adoption until around the end of September. Frodo is male dog reactive, and does not like small pets of either gender, including cats. He should be able to live with a larger female dog. He's very friendly with people, walks well on leash and crate trained.


Poor Whisper! She was found by some hunters when the chain she was dragging got entangled in a briar patch. Underweight, dehydrated and anemic, CHAAMP picked Whisper up from a kill shelter and brought her immediately to the vet. After a consultation with a cardiologist, it's been determined Whisper has a heart murmur from a valve that is not closing completely. The vet estimates Whisper to be about 8-10 years old. Eventually she will need to go on high blood pressure medication which can run $20-50 per month. Thankfully, Whisper does not have any activity restrictions, and the rest of her heart is in very good shape. 

Sam I Am - Small

Sam I Am is tiny ... but he's got a huge Malamute heart. Playful, and full of energy you'd never know Sam is about 3 years old. Currently at 33 lbs, Sam will not get larger in size, but he will add some weight. Sam has had his first heartworm treatment. He won't be available for adoption until around the end of September. Sam does pretty well with most larger dogs. He's very talkative and it's hard sometimes to tell if he's being reactive, or just saying hello to another dog.


Cheyenne is a 5 year old girl, who was owner released when her person moved. Typical Malamute, Cheyenne is not good with small pets, however she may be able to live with a large, mellow male dog. Favorites are long walks, belly rubs and being brushed. Good natured, and Malamute stubborn, Cheyenne is very smart and a bit rambunctious, needing plenty of exercise.

Olaf - Young

Olaf, born in September 2014 is a very sweet boy. He is friendly with female dogs his size or larger, crate trained and very loveable with people. Olaf is mildly resource guarding food/bowls, which is fixable and we will work on. However, we would recommend he not have access to, or live with children. Olaf was paper trained. He's not house broken, other than going on paper, but he will go on leash for us. So he should learn house breaking pretty quickly. Olaf is a playful, happy boy and is a wonderful companion.

Oreo -  Young

Oreo, born in July 2014 is a real cutie! He's very well behaved for his age, is friendly with female dogs his size or larger, and is crate and house trained. 

7-24-15 update: Oreo has had TPO surgery on his left hip and is recovering nicely. In August he is scheduled for surgery on his right hip and will be 2-3 months for recovery.
