Zippo is described as an easy going gentle giant that listens well to commands.  He enjoys the company of other dogs and especially loves to be with his humans.  He has become an office dog with his Foster Dad until he finds a new home for his aging 10 year old body. Zippo is taking medication for his arthritis. His adopter needs to be willing and able to afford to continue this and commit to his lifelong veterinary care.

Zippo has a super sweet and friendly personality. He is curious about the world around him, is vocal and will say, “I love you!”…or would that be…“I love Woo” in Mal speak?  He likes tug of war rope toys, and is well versed in many commands including ‘sit’ and ‘stay.’

Zippo needs a fenced, secure yard and home without children. He is a very large boy at 133 pounds.

Zippo is posted for WAMAL-Washington Alaskan Malamute Adoption League. This loving, sweet boy is being fostered in Kent, WA. For more information about Zippo and adopting him, please email:
