This beautiful girl is Dora. She is a sweetheart of a malamute that loves attention and tummy rubs! Dora is 8 years old. She weighs 105 pounds.  Dora’s foster family describe her as “a gentle giant who enjoys human interaction and sleeping near her people.”

Dora’s activity level is moderate and she enjoys exercise along with lazy times which is basically the perfect combo.  She is also one of those more rare mals that likes to swim!  Dora is housetrained and likes car rides.  Her favorite toys are stuffed toys with squeakers and she will even play fetch sometimes.  Dora will do tricks for treats and knows ‘leave it’, ‘stay’, ‘sit’, ‘wait’ and a bunch of other commands as well and would love to show off for you!

Dora was raised with 2 male malamutes. She is curious with cats and has shown to be protective of her food and toys around children. For these reasons, a home without kids or cats is desired.
