We are currently taking a limited number of deposits to reserve puppies for litters planned for early Summer and Autumn 2015. These litters are part of the Anglo Wulfdog breeding programme, aimed at expanding the currently very limited gene pool of the Northern Inuit dog and other Wolf Lookalike breeds. (See our Sansorrella website for detailed information about our breeding programme). All our breeding dogs are rigorously health tested, hip scored and DM tested, elbow scored and eye tested where relevant and are DNA profiled. The profiles and microchip details, as well as health test results, are recorded on a database so pedigrees are accurate and irrefutable. Every pairing is carefully matched, with health and temperament being of paramount importance. We also ensure that the COI (coefficiency of inbreeding) of our litters is never higher than 6.25% (calculated over the necessary 10 generations) since inbreeding is one of the major causes of health problems in dogs. Our litters are primarily to give us sound breeding stock for the future of our breeding programme but as we only select one or two puppies from each litter to go into the programme there are always a number of puppies available to suitable homes. We are careful to place our puppies in homes where they can expect to enjoy a long and happy life. These dogs are not for novice owners and are not suitable to be left on their own for long periods, as they need company 24/7 (human or suitably sized canine) otherwise they can become distraught, destructive and vocal. If interested in giving a home to one of our special puppies please phone or email to find out whether you can offer a suitable home. All our puppies are home reared and socialised with adults, children, dogs/pets and all the sounds for life. Litters are fully wormed, vet checked, first vaccinated, microchipped (in the new owners name so there is no transfer fee) and insured. Puppies come with a comprehensive puppy pack which includes a generous supply of food, Anglo Wulfdog registration certificate, 5 generation pedigree, worming, vaccination, insurance and microchip certificates. We also give our own detailed information leaflets covering diet, care and training plus a free quality dog whistle and safety lanyard, as all our puppies are trained to recall to a whistle by the time they leave at 8 weeks old and we like our new owners to be able to continue the training we have started. We are available to offer help and advice throughout the life of our puppies and are pleased that most owners keep in touch, sending regular updates and pictures and often visit (see our Progeny pages). Whilst we will never sell anyone two puppies at the same time many of our puppy owners come back for second puppies in the future (4th, 5th and even 6th in some cases) which we feel is testimony to the quality of our puppies and the service we provide. We are happy to send puppies abroad and have exported to various destinations around the world, but will only export to countries with a climate suitable for this type of dog and destinations that don't entail long haul flights as the welfare of our puppies is of utmost importance. Please contact us for details of arrangements and costs applicable. For more information about forthcoming litters see our main website (Future Litters page). To reserve a puppy from a future litter we will require a deposit/reservation fee of £100, for which we will send a formal receipt in the post. We then undertake to inform the buyer when the litter has been born and will give them a link to a unique webpage specifically for that litter. We will update the page several times a week with news, pictures and videos, so new owners can watch their puppy grow and save pictures for their own records (new owners are invited to come and choose their puppy once it has reached 3 weeks of age). The litter webpage is not accessible from the main website and is for the owners of that particular litter only. We try to be fair and realistic with our pricing, which varies slightly depending on the % of wolfdog content of the litter from £ 700 - £900. In the event that we are unable to provide a puppy of the sex or description required, due to the whims of nature, then the deposit is refundable in full or can be transferred to the next similar litter. Cancellations for any other reason are subject to our terms and conditions (see our website for details). We only take a limited number of reservations for each litter until the litter is born in order to avoid disappointment so please contact us as soon as possible to express an interest in a litter and to find out whether the list is still open to reservations. More information on Anglo Wulfdogs can be found in the Wolf Lookalike Handbook which can be ordered direct from the publisher through a link on our website and is a must read for anyone interested in wolfdogs and wolf lookalike dogs.
Before bringing your beloved puppy home, it's important that the puppy is over 8 weeks of age. If you’re suspicious that the puppy is being sold before 8 weeks of age, then please report them to us.
Important Checklist for adopting or buying a Alaskan Malamute
Before making contact, or planning a visit for this Alaskan Malamute puppy or dog, please make sure you have considered all the points made on the below checklist. We advise that you DO NOT buy a puppy or dog from the advertiser unless you are happy that you can tick off every point on this list and are confident that the advertiser is genuine. If you have any concerns over an advertiser please report them to us.
The fact that you’re considering adopting, or buying a new puppy or dog is an important decision and one that should not be taken lightly. Your new pet will solely rely on you in many ways, so it's important that you’re 100% committed before hand. You can do further reading about caring for dogs and their wellbeing in our pet advice section. You can also find out more information about the Alaskan Malamute dog breed by visiting the Alaskan Malamute Dog Breed Information.
Is the advertiser genuine?
Confirm that the advertiser is genuine. You can do this by arranging a visit with the potential advertisers home, if they try to avoid you visiting, or make excuses, then you should be concerned. If the advertiser asks for money, or deposit to be paid online without you visiting the dog at their home, or they request to meet you somewhere or drop the dog off at yours, then please DO NOT agree. We advise that you should never send money online. If you’re concerned about an advertisers authenticity then please report them to us.
Mypetzilla conducts various checks on advertisers on this site, but are unable to confirm that all are genuine. So please make sure you visit the advertiser at their home and verify this yourself.
The advertiser should let you see the puppy with their mother and in some circumstances their father as well. If the puppy is shown without their mother, then this can indicate that they've
been breed by the advertiser and or possibly imported. If the advertiser makes excuses as to why you can't see the mother, we advise that you immediately walk away.
Check the puppy is over 8 weeks of age
Before bringing your beloved puppy home, it's important that the puppy is over 8 weeks of age and has been properly weaned before they leave their mothers. Some sellers will keep the puppy longer than this and this is perfectly fine.
Health check of the puppy or dog
It is very important that you check the health of your puppy or dog before you decide to adopt or buy. Although this can be difficult, most sellers will agree that you can return the puppy or dog within 48 hours should they have any health issues. It's worth taking your puppy or dog to the vet for a health check as soon as you take them home. The seller should be willing for you to do this. If the puppy has already had a health check by the seller’s veterinary practice, then they should provide you with the legitimate paperwork to support this. It is also worth ringing the vet to confirm everything beforehand.
Check the puppy or dog is up-to-date with their vaccinations
All puppies should receive 2 vaccinations, the first between 8-10 weeks of age and the 2nd vaccination 2 weeks later around the age of 10-12 weeks. Older dogs may also need booster vaccinations and this is normally recommended by the vet. It's important that you check with the seller what vaccinations the puppy or dog has had. It's worth noting that puppies should have had their first vaccination before they leave their mother. If the seller has not provided a vaccination plan, then it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your puppy go outside.
Have the puppies had treatment for worms and fleas?
Puppies should be wormed at the age of 2 weeks and again around 5 weeks old. Before the puppy leaves the seller, they should have had more worming treatment at 8 to 12 weeks of age.
Ask questions about the puppies mother
It's worth asking the seller how old the mother is, she should be at least 1.5 years old. How many litters she has had. How is the mother's temperament. All these questions are important for the future health of your dog and the seller should want to tell you everything about the puppies mother.
Are the puppies socialised?
It's necessary that the puppies have interacted well with their puppy litter and have been raised in a home environment around other adults, children, and general household life. Puppies that don't receive this kind of training and development from a young age, may go on to develop behavioral problems later in their life and become difficult to train. They may likely develop temperament issues and will find it difficult to adjust to family life.
Is the puppy/dog registered with the Kennel Club?
If the puppy or dog has been registered with the Kennel club, then you must check that you’ve been given the correct documentation before you take the puppy/dog home. It's worth considering to check the documentation and phoning the Kennel Club to verify the registration.
Check the puppy or dog is Microchipped
From the 6th April 2016, it is required by Law that all dogs over 8 weeks of age are micro chipped and that the seller's details are registered in their name and are kept up-to-date. The breeder is responsible for microchipping the puppies and must have all the correct information updated on the database before they are adopted or bought. You must make sure you receive the microchip documentation with the chip number and then arrange to change the microchip details into your name. You can find out more information about this by visiting our puppy and dog Microchipping article.
Considering the pet insurance costs
Insuring your puppy or dog is one of the most important decisions you should make when bringing your beloved puppy home. Veterinary fees can become extremely expensive and it's important that you have the correct level of cover beforehand. We recommend that you research pet insurance providers and purchase the correct level of cover. Most polices will allow you to start the cover the day your puppy or dog arrives to their new home. Please check our pet insurance section for further information.
