Meet Luna, a one-year-old Alaskan Malamute mix on a quest to find her forever home. Luna is a sweet and happy lady who thrives in an environment filled with both physical and mental activity. Her intelligence shines through, and she’s eager to learn and please her human companions.
While Luna has lived with small dogs before, it wasn’t the perfect match. However, she could potentially find harmony with a dog of similar size and playfulness. Unfortunately, Luna’s excitement can be a bit much for cats or young children, as she tends to get overly enthusiastic around small, fast-moving animals.
Luna’s ideal home includes a backyard where she can handle her business freely, as she prefers not to go on leash. When it comes to indoor activities, Luna is a professional snuggler and loves being the center of attention. Watch out, though – she’s known for claiming the couch and taking over your bed with her irresistible charm.
This well-mannered lady is a pro at ignoring passing dogs and people, focusing solely on sniffing all the smells and soaking in quality time with her beloved humans. Luna is ready to bring joy, love, and a touch of mischief into your life – are you ready to make her a part of your forever family?
Currently in a foster home, Luna isn’t available for walk-in meet and greets at the shelter. If you believe your home could be Luna’s forever haven, start the adoption process by submitting an online application. Due to the high volume of applications, we’ll be reaching out to those whose lifestyles align best with Luna’s needs. Help Luna embark on the next chapter of her life, filled with love, playfulness, and endless cuddles.
