This ten year-old female (spay) Alaskan malamute was picked up by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department when deputies executed an eviction notice against her one-time owners.  (They took the tv but forgot poor Kya.)  Kya is wolf grey and weighs 85#.  In addition to abandoning her, Kya’s family made sure she is heart worm positive.  (She’ll be on a "soft kill"protocol the rest of her life.)  Kya is interested in her surroundings and pretty responsive.  This girl needs and deserves a forever home for the final phase of her life.  She would do best in a home with no other dogs.

Not Yet Named

This young seal and white malamute was abandoned and picked up by Clayton County Animal Control in late January, 2013.  Most likely he was whelped about a year earlier.  He came in weighing just under 55# and now is a tad over 65#.  He is still growing and will fill out.  He has been fully vetted and is neutered.  He is also heart worm negative and on preventative.

This guy has an unknown history but for now seems responsive and smart in one-on-one settings.  He is in an outside run until the Board of Directors become more accustomed to him and him to them.  

It is clear that this guy will not be a "normal placement."  He can only go to someone who is experienced, mal savvy, and committed to long term positive obedience training. No kids or other animals should be involved.

Meet the Board of Directors at Howling Dog Rescue, Inc.

Potential placements through HDR, Inc. are handled by an oversight committee. Meet Huck Finn, the current Director of Operations, shown in the third photo from the top. Mr. Finn was ably trained by his predecessor, Atlanta Jad. Jad is the woolly pictured in the bottom photo. They almost always seek input from their senior advisor, Red Emma. She's pictured in the woods with emeritus board member Sash. It's the photo at the top. If a decision isn't clear, they'll bring in the youngest, most devilish member of the crew, Nilak. She's in the fourth picture from the top. As a last resort they draw on the wisdom and experience of emeritus board members Seavey and Nomarak's Meesha. But those two are usually too busy hunting in the creek pictured in second photo from the bottom. On the really tough calls they'll even consult with three old timers, Kobuk shown sitting in the second photo from the top along with Mook and Doctor, who is in the fourth photo down. All committee members are staunch advocates of and adherents to the Malamute Resistance Movement.


This is a beautiful female malamute, silver-grey in color. The photos do not do Scrimmer justice. I doubt she was whelped any later than the spring of 2007.

Scrimmer is opened faced and weighs 80#. She is spay, negative for heartworm, and up to date on shots. Scrimmer is house and crate trained. She has an unknown history and was found stray in Cherokee County.

Scrimmer is currently fostered with a house full of mals and sibes. While Scrimmer does well with most, she is not a soft dog, and isn't going to get this year's Ms. Congeniality award.

Scrimmer is not a problem dog and will be easy to train. Like most, she would benefit from a nothing-in-life-is-free protocol.

This girl was taken during a home invasion in Rex, Georgia, last September. She hasn't been seen since.

Baby Bear is a wolf grey Alaskan malamute, intact, weighing about 75#. Baby Bear was whelped June, 1996, but looks considerably younger.

If you see or learn anything about Baby Bear please contact us immediately. A reward is offered for information leading to her location. No questions asked.
