VIC - Melbourne A divine 22 mth old Mally boy, Loki is extremely human friendly and very affectionate. He absolutely adores his cuddles and tummy rubs and loves his toys He also enjoys playing fetch with the ball - he actually brings it back, which is very uncommon for a Malamute!.
Loki is good with children but would only be suited to older children over 10 yrs or teenagers as he can be far too ...boisterous for younger children when excited and accidentally knock them over. He's generally an obedient boy and learns quickly. He will sit, stay and wait until given permission to eat his dinner. Loki has also learned to pee on command every time he is taken outside. He is great to brush or bathe and doesn't complain. He does like to dig a little, like most Mals do but he doesn't try to escape.
He is a tall, very strong and extremely active teenager who will need a committed family willing to involve him in family activities, allowed to keep his family company inside and to go on outings, as well as provide him with his necessary daily exercise to keep him physically fit and his mind stimulated.
Loki is very strong on lead and has been accustomed to walks of 5 kms each morning and evening and would be ideal for a family who enjoys sledding.
He would love a large young female friend to play with, if compatible, so if you do have an existing dog, a meeting would need to be organised in neutral territory to ensure they got on well first.
Loki can be quite reactive with other dogs on walks and requires a strong, breed experienced owner with good leadership skills and training ability to be able to help Loki decrease this issue and reach his full potential.
Frequent grooming will be required for Loki to maintain his coat and strong, secure fencing to keep him safe and not to be let off-lead in any unsecured areas.
Malamute's rarely bark but unfortunately Loki is quite the barker when outside.
* He would NOT be suitable to a home with cats, pocket pets or young children.
