We do have leads on young adults  or older dogs looking for their forever or retirement homes. We are also in need of qualified foster homes for rescue and sheltered malamutes whose breeders are untraceable. If any of this resonates with you, please contact us:

CAREFULLY PLANNED AND RESPONSIBLE PLACEMENT

WE TAKE OUR RESPONSIBILITY SERIOUSLY

We are committed to ensuring our puppies are handled, socialized and introduced to basic puppy manners.  There is a lot of love, pride and work involved with raising each and every one of our litters. We want our Spiritrun puppies to grow up to be wonderful family companions and members of today's society. 


All of our dogs are health-tested and have their clearances done prior to being bred.  Most of our clearances are done at 24 months of age.  In addition to health-testing, the dogs we choose to breed must have a sound, friendly temperaments. Health and temperaments are our top priorities in our breeding program.


We pay close attention to the developmental stages that all puppies progress through while they are with us.  There are three major developmental stages that occur in the first two months of a dog's life.  We make sure each stage is successfully accomplished.  These include :  Socializing puppies with a variety of people (children, strangers, etc.),  teaching bite inhibition  and  establishing household manners. 


We do not take "reservations" on a litter as we wait to make sure there is a puppy that matches your family's needs.  Families who understand the malamute breed and can offer a good, loving home are encouraged to visit and may, if desired, be placed on our waiting list. 


We spend time talking with you about what you want to accomplish with your Alaskan Malamute.  We also take this time to show you all the appropriate paperwork and certifications, such as,  CKC certificates, pedigrees and health test results of both sire and dam. 


At eight weeks old temperament and conformation testing is done.  At that time we will find out if one of the puppies is well suited to your family.  It is always a great day when we can phone you with the terrific news that we have a puppy for you. 


Puppies are vaccinated, examined by a licensed veterinarian and micro-chipped before going to their new homes. 


At Spiritrun we usually wait for the dogs to mature to at least ten weeks old before placing them into their new homes.   You will find that your puppy has been well socialized with other dogs, cats, adults and children of all ages.  Spiritrun puppies leave our home with a very good sense of obedience, it is up to new owners to continue to match the effort to ensure a continued progression in learning and obedience.    


WHY SO CAUTIOUS?  Malamutes can live up to and beyond 12 years of age.  It is much better to have a breeder who works tirelessly in the beginning to find you the right match, than to hand over the first dog available.  We want you AND the dog to be very happy for the lifespan of the dog. We are looking for the ideal match for our puppies and a forever home. Of course, should circumstances dictate that you must relinquish your dog at any time in it's life, it comes back to us. Always.
