Hi, I'm Maximus (Max #2 at FSFH). I'm an Alaskan malamute. I was born on February 12, 2016. My first owner and I lived in California, until he moved to assisted living. Then I moved to Michigan and had a great home, except my elderly fur brother and I didn't get along. My younger fur brother and I however had alot of fun. Small Furry animals are not my friend either, so no cats please.
I am fully house trained. I detest being in a crate or put into any closed room. I MUST have full roam of the house, aka spoiled and free. I don't chew anything or make any kind of messes, except in a car. Riding in a vehicle literally makes me sick (from both ends).
I know my basic commands, sit, stay, down. I walk well on the leash although, at first I do pull because I'm just so darn excited to be going for a walk.
I LOVE to be by my people. I will follow you everywhere. I adore kids!
Brody is a big loveable brute. He has mild hip dysplasia as well as ADHD. He is very stubborn, but will learn to please. He considers cats to be 'fast food'. He loves coming in from the cold and being covered with a blanket, where he will sleep for hours. His favorite thing in the whole world is cuddling. He is great with children and likes to swim and fetch things. He likes to eat potted plants, so gardeners beware. You can scratch him anywhere and he loves it. He can be aggressive to other dogs when there are women giving him attention, or around food. He loves rawhides, provided you have started to peel them for him, and due to his ginormous cranium melon, can destroy one in under twenty minutes. He also likes to eat pillows. Brody would require a moderately sized fenced yard and lots of attention. He has a very intimidating bark for a doorbell, but loves to meet new people when they are invited in. He would do best in a one-dog home. When he is scolded, he does a great Sylvester Stallone impression.

Woofers was brought to me by a friend who found him abandoned, without food, water or shelter. Woofers is about 7 yrs old. He is housebroken and has a great attitude! I took him to my vet for a check up. I was concerned about diabetes or kidney problems because of his excessive drinking and needing to go out to urinate and his weight. My concerns were unfounded! His blood work came back very good! The vet said the drinking is probably due to dehydration and could possibly be classified as a psycogenic drinker. That means that he possibly drank a lot of water when he was bored and it developed into a habit. Since he has been with me his drinking has decreased as has the need to go out and urinate. He is about 15 -20 pounds overweight and has a bit of a problem sitting and laying down due to this. He is on a regiment of 3/4 cup of Taste of the Wild along with 1 can of green beans 2 times a day. His walks need to be easy and somewhat short - no longer than 2 miles until he starts losing weight. His front leg - near as the vet could figure without x-rays - was very badly damaged at the elbow. While this will always affect his gate, it should present no real problems. There is some arthritis involved. He gets along with my dogs. I just have to watch him at "food time". He really likes people (the vet and techs thought he was really special and sweet natured). He really seemed interested in a small child at the vet's. He wagged and wanted to sniff and say hi to the little tyke. Also, he showed no aggression towards any of the other animals that came in. Please contact Few Steps From Home Animal Rescue if you think you could give Woofers a great new home.
