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. 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 am in play groups where I am being boarded and I really like that! I get along with the other dogs my size and just ignore anyone trying to start trouble.
I had a foster home for a few days and really enjoyed that! I really hadn't spent much time inside a home before and only had a couple accidents. As you can see in my photo gallery, I really enjoyed the couch! I also enjoy snuggling with my human and can be a big lap dog. I would really like another foster home or better yet my "furever" home! If you're up for fostering or adopting a sweet, active, handsome Malamute, please get in touch with my "agent" below!
Polar is a very sweet boy who would really benefit from some one on one attention and training in a foster home while he waits for his future adoptive family. Polar is heartworm positive, and will be going through heart worm treatment during the first couple months of 2019.
Status: Medical Hold | Location: Boise, ID.
