Winter is upon us and our dogs are as anxious as we are to get into their forever home.  Right now we are full.  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.

Bucky  1 year pup

"It's a good thing you're so darn cute!" Geez, I've only been with my foster Mom 24 hours and I've heard this a gazillion times. I'm just a puppy ... what do they expect of me?! I'm still in celebration mode - my one year birthday was just 8-27. Yes, I jump up on people. Yes, I whine in a crate. Yes, I can't be trusted in the house unsupervised or I'll tear things up. Like I said, I'm just a puppy! I am house broken, I'm playful with large female dogs and ... I'M SO DARN CUTE!

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.


Nikki is a very sweet and mellow 7 year old girl and a perfect companion. She's a bit overweight at 115 lbs. Her optimum weight would be about 100 lbs. Having recently lived with a large Lab, Nikki would love to share a home with a fur-brother. She's a very easy dog, is house trained, and can be reliably left alone in the house unsupervised. 


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.

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


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.


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. 


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. 


Daisy is about 18 months old and most likely a Siberian Husky/mix. She tends to be initially shy with men, but quickly warms up. Daisy can be quite talkative, and isn't fond of being contained. If left alone unsupervised, so far, she has not been destructive. Typical Northern breed, Daisy is not friendly with female dogs of any size. Nor does she tolerate small pets. She may be able to live with a large, laid back male dog. 


When Cheyenne was 5 years old, she 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. More than likely she'd be best as the only pet in the household. 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.She loves balls, water from the hose and chasing her tail.


Lottie, born in October 2014 is a sweet girl, friendly with humans and large male dogs. Typical Mal, Lottie cannot live with small pets, nor with female dogs of any size. She walks well on leash and is eager to please her people.


Frosty, born in March 2013 is a BIG girl. She's 110 lbs and not overweight at all. She was released by an Amish puppy mill when she did not produce puppies for them to sell. She's young and full of energy. Strenuous daily exercise will be a must to keep Frosty from being bored and destructive. Very friendly with people, Frosty would have fun at a basic obedience class. Frosty cannot live with small pets of either gender, nor female dogs of any size. She would do well with a large mellow male dog.


CHAAMP is a 501c3 non-profit organization working to rescue Alaskan Malamutes and connect them with good, loving forever homes.


The Alaskan Malamute is a northern  dog breed.  They were integral to the survival of the northern people.  Today they play some of the same roles.
