Hey there everyone! I'm Polar! Not sure how I got that name as I came from the southern states. I guess the people at the shelter thought I needed a more "northern" name. That's right, I came from a loooong distance to Moonsong because no other rescues in my area could help and Moonsong wasn't going to let me die. Plus they have an amazing volunteer they call Superman and he drove many, many miles to come save me and transport me all the way back to WY and then I hitched a ride to Boise, ID. What a journey!
I'm a young guy - between one and two years old. When I first came into rescue, I knew "sit", but that was about it. I have some awesome force free trainer's working with me and now they are fostering me while I go through my heartworm treatment. I'm a high energy guy and like to pull and be out front on walks, but I'm learning about walking with a loose leash, impulse control and lots of other stuff. It all involves food, so I'm on board 100%! I've been told I'm really strong and would be a good candidate for pulling sports like skijoring, bikejoring, etc. I just need a little training. I can be a little reactive when I see dogs on leash - I just want to go meet them! I have been in play groups when I was being boarded and I really liked that! I get along with the other dogs my size and just ignore anyone trying to start trouble.
I am a pretty good boy in my foster home and am housetrained, but will need lots of exercise and more training to keep me happy and not destructive. My foster family says I'm like a cat because I just love attention and close contact. I can be a big lap dog! I'm nearly through with my heartworm treatment and time having limited exercise and would really like my "furever" home! If you're up for adopting a sweet, active, handsome Malamute, please get in touch with my "agent" below!
