alaskan malamute x
8 year old female
Location: Springfield Lakes, Qld
I was given my name because Yura is Inuit eskimo for ‘one who is beautiful’ and often used to refer to Polar bears. Looks kinda fitting huh! Not everyone can have their own Polar bear in the family, so this could be as close as you will get. Here is what this particular cuddly one will need in the furever home that I paw-pick for myself!
Like my namesakes, I like to be a solitary being. I don’t do other dogs or pets in the home so will need one where I am the one and only and the centre of your attention. This also means that on walks and out and about, I am not suitable in offlead dog areas and will need a handler who has some experience with large dog breeds.
The other thing I don't do is small children. Oh come on, it might sound harsh but you understand, not everyone wants to live with little people and I happen to be one of them.
Older people, like teenage and older though is a totally different story. I love to be the centre of my people’s attention, sleep right by them at night time and spend as much time with them as I can.
I understand that you can’t dedicate all your time to loving and walking me and stuff, but of course as much as possible will be required, so if you need to go out and leave me from time to time then that is ok. I will happily stay home as long as you have secure and solid fences of 5ft or more. Escaping isn’t something that really interests me but it is best that I don’t have access to any dogs on the other sides that might wanna come bother my quiet time.
You know ideally what I am looking for is someone either retired or who works from home or who just is a bit of a homebody and is looking for some big cuddly companionship. Someone who likes to hit the pavement or the park trails for some light exercise a few times a week and someone who will sleep better at night with a Polar bear right by their side. If that is you, then what are you waiting for? You can get in touch with the team by applying below.
