Moonsong Foster Malamutes >> Timber
Size: Large | Age: Young | Gender: Male | Breed: Alaskan Malamute/Great Pyrenees
Hi, my name is Timber and I am almost 2 years old, but still act like a playful puppy. I am a neutered male who has the biggest heart you will meet. I am super friendly with humans, no one is stranger to me. When I like you a lot, I may jump up to give you a big hug. I am super cuddly and love to be the center of attention. My toys are my best friends and I love roughhousing with them. My favorite thing is long (leashed) walks, I love to pull and need training on loose leash walking.
You may have noticed the pink pigment around my lips and nose, which is because I have recently been diagnosed with Oral Eosinophilic Disease. This is a rare condition mostly seen in cats where I get oral ulcers and pigment loss, but I have not noticed a thing. My original mom raised me from a young pup in Bozeman, MT but when I started developing health concerns, she unfortunately could not afford the medical tests to diagnose what was going on with me. She bravely surrendered to Moonsong Malamute Rescue who along with a veterinary clinic helped diagnose my condition. Now I am getting the proper care and the pigment is coming back and almost all my oral ulcers are gone. The management of my condition is minimal when I do not have a flare up, but when I do, oral steroids and immunosuppressant drugs help. I also have a sensitive GI system, which can be managed with diet.
Timber does resource guard food around other dogs; separate feeding areas are required. He can become overly excited around new dogs but gets along well with them when slow and careful introductions are done.
Timber has been in 2 foster homes in a short period of time due to no fault of his own. He has developed separation anxiety and will need a patient home that is willing to work through his anxiety. He is a young dog and is currently attending finishing school (basic obedience training classes). He has a ton of potential to become a wonderful companion.
