An adotable dog in New Castle, DE
Neko has been with us since 4-25-12. From Kansas, Neko and his partner Mallory (who has been adopted, now Maya) were removed from a bad situation. Terribly underweight, unsocialized and frightened, it took Neko a while to acclimate to us. Once he realizes youâre not going to hurt him, and that youâre the person who doles out the food and treats, Neko becomes your best buddy. Heartworm positive, Neko recovered from treatment and is in good health. In his 6 years, Neko has not had an easy life. He deserves a chance to sleep in a soft bed, and live a life treated with respect. If you have a secure fenced yard, or a pet safe basement/garage, that is going to be Nekoâs preference of where to hang out while you arenât home. He is not going to tolerate a crate. Typical Malamute, Neko cannot live with cats, male dogs, nor other small pets. A large boy at 80+ lbs, we cannot adopt Neko to a home with small children as heâd likely knock a child over. Chances are he would need to be the only pet in the household.
Hi, my name is Neko. I came in with my sister Mallory, all the way from Kansas. At first I donât trust people. You canât blame me, Iâve not had an easy 5 years. Once I get to know you, Iâm a big teddy bear. Itâs best if Iâm the only pet in the household. Plus, Iâm a big guy so youâd need a large house. My last place I was tied outside, and didnât get fed very often. Then a darn mosquito bit me, and I tested positive for heartworm. Once I got to the rescue, I was treated and the medicine took care of the worms. I think Iâd like it best if I could be outside during the day while you are at work, and come inside at night to spend time with you.
If you are interested in adopting, please email MalRescueDE@gmail.com for an application. Once your application is processed, a home visit is required. There is an adoption fee of $225 for each adult dog. Our Mals are healthy, spayed or neutered, up to date on shots, and heart worm negative. Unfortunately rescues don't have the ability to hold dogs for adopters. Dogs are adopted to approved adopters on a first come, first serve basis. Our goal is to get a dog adopted to a forever home so that we can then help another one. If you are interested in one of our dogs, the first step is to request an application, which is typically sent to you the same day you have emailed your request. We process your application the day it is received. The next step is a home visit, and then you will be invited to meet the dogs. While we represent the State of Delaware, the majority of AMRODâs dogs are fostered in Virginia.
