For Snowolf

Dear snowolf, these are my dogs. I have a hunch that you might like them haha. The white one is Nina and the Black one is Nakoma. they are both 5. breeder says no wolf in them, but they have malamute and plenty of husky. They are a bitch and a half to deal with but they are the cutest dam things we have ever seen so we don't dare get rid of them.

We just got ourselves a dog. Female. I wanted to name her Payback, because Payback's a... um, anyway she's half lab and half german shorthaired pointer, so she needs a shitload of exercise or she gets bored and starts eating the house.

Beautiful dogs! My next dog is going to a malamute/husky puppy, easily my favorite breed. I get so envious when I see other people with them...

bingo! neither will fetch, they are way to smart for that, and the black one only swims for about 2 minutes when we force her to. So for exercise they need at least a good walk and to be chased around the yard until they get tired. If they are not sufficiently tired they used to chew EVERYTHING! just last year they grew up and stopped eating everything in the house so we could trust em enough to give them free reign of the house, not if they are bored at night they just scratch at the carpet.

If they get out they will both take off and roam the neighborhood and dont come back for about a day so we have to go catch them when they get out. They think its a fun game, and evade capture as long as possible, we have to lure them back with generous amounts of ham. It is especially a problem when the black one get out at night, i was driving around one time with a light looking for her and didnt see her until she was right next to the truck, and the only reason i stopped was because i thought i heard her nails on the road, its pretty scary when the black one escapes haha.

Beautiful dogs. But you can keep them, I'm done with Siberians. Owned one in Phoenix, he was an outdoor dog in 155 degree weather, would you believe it? Tough as nails. Looked like your silver gray one. People kept asking me if he was a wolf, but he was a pure bred Siberian. He was my friend's (kennel breeder) show and wheel dog. Was an absolute bear to walk, he ripped your arm from its socket... thought he was pulling a sled all the time. Yeah, in a few weeks (without exercise) he took apart an overstuffed rocker we left out for him to sleep on. I mean TOOK it apart down to springs and wooden splinters. Loved the guy, but he got an offer I couldn't refuse. Gave him to a friend who owned 60 acres of wooded land behind his house in North Carolina. Trace couldn't have been happier - now he gets three squares and chases deer for exercise... now that's a dog's life .

Now I have 2 pit bull mix mutts. Couldn't be happier - lowest maintenance dogs and INTELLIGENT too... now we have to spell words out instead of saying them . Lollygag around the house for 23 hours and 45 minutes a day - just move to eat, piss and shit. Then for 15 minutes, get out of their way as they play with each other you'd think they were going to tear the house or yard apart... must be the fighting breed instinct. Terrific guard dogs while being quite friendly to familiar friends. I have daughters at home, so no regrets. They'll separate you limb from limb if you try to break into the house or make an aggressive move towards one of the girls. Gimme pit bull/lab mixes anytime. Each to his own .

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Well I might as well post a pic of my husky/malamutes also then haha.
Great dogs to play with and will keep me young hopefully

Edit: Yes I guess they would be considered high maintenance. Our dogs are taken for walks/runs at least every second day, and this is with a decent sized fenced backyard already to play in. Also we never have them off leash in public or wild, they have too strong of instincts and Snowolf was correct have a tendency to run. If only I could trust them off leash I would love to have these dogs again when I'm older but then again who knows.

I have a Arctic/Timber/Malamute x. Amazing dog, very difficult at times, but just so smart. This is "Trinity". She stands as tall as me on her back legs.

Here she is wondering wtf I am doing



With her buddy at our cabin






About maintenance, she gets a min of 2 walks a day. Usually one is cycling (I have a modified walky-dog I use on my bike) or jogging (use a harness and skijoring gear to jog with her).

She's calmed down a lot now but growing up has caused thousands of dollars in damage, she could not be left alone, even with a table, she'd eat the table if it was chewable. She's chewed remotes, video cameras, planters, digs "dens" in the back yard, can't be let off leash in public areas (she won't come back, no it is not a training issue. She likes to play games and won't come unless she wants to).

Its much better now though, only the odd chewing incident usually if she feels ignored and wants some negative attention, kinda like a kid.
