My name is Kota Bear and I am a red Alaskan Malamute. My birthday is October 13, 2015. I am almost a year old! I love to play and love lots of attention! I need a lot of area to run and exercise and to show you my fun and active personality. I love belly rubs and showing you how fast I can learn my new tricks! Like sitting, laying, shaking, and speaking. I'm even learning how to balance a treat on my nose. I love treats and showing you my tricks for treats! I have such a fun and loving character and need a family that will give me the love and attention that I will return tenfold. I enjoy playing with kids and other dogs. I make friends very quickly at the park with other dogs and everyone always wants to stop to see me, I love this kind of attention! I am very handsome and sweet. I am extremely loyal and enjoy playing any and all games, but especially tug of war and fetch! I am eager to learn, and although I may be a bit stubborn at times, I find great joy in achieving new goals and pleasing my owners! I also love going on adventures in the car and swimming in lakes and rivers. I really like chewing on bones and love finding secret places to hide them. I am very active, but love to snuggle up at night and relax as well. My current owners love me so much, but they know I have needs that they won't be able to accommodate at their new home, like a big yard to run and play in! I will miss them, but I know they want what's best for me. I need to find the best home and family to grow, learn, and become a member of. I promise to show love and loyalty in return for belly rubs, ear scratches, snuggles, running and playing games. I am excited to meet my new family and can't wait to see what my future holds! I will be the best companion ever. I'm neutered and UTD on all my vaccines, HW, FT, and have a microchip of my own. RPSM recommends children 6 years and older. I will require a standard fenced in yard to keep me safe. If you are interested in adopting me, please go to www.rpsm.org to fill out an application. My adoption fee is $400.
