We were thinking of getting a Siberian Husky puppy. I saw an ad in the Post for a booksale/bake sale for Chesapeake Area Alaskan Malamute Protection. We went to it yesterday, and talked with Leslie, the lady who runs it. She discouraged us from getting a puppy due to our schedules (something I was thinking about), and now we might be a foster family, with the possibility of adoption. We have to complete an application and go through an interview, but we’re going to give it a try.
Malamutes are close to huskies. There’s a separate Virgina husky rescue group, Pet Harbor Rescue, but it sounds like a malamute might be better suited for us.
