SPIKE will do anything with and for you as long as he trusts you! Spike knows basic commands, walks nicely, and will let you brush anywhere. Timid at first, he will lean in for pets and will woo, leap, and twirl when he’s excited. He is very smart and extremely food motivated, so you can teach him pretty much anything. We have been working on ‘sit’ and ‘wait’ to teach him not to push through the door since he doesn’t like to be left behind. Spike will play fetch with you, bringing the toy right to your hands sometimes. His favorite past time is sleeping and gnawing on bones. There have been a couple of times that he has guarded a bone (it was a rawhide that had broken off) and a rat that he had caught, but I never worried that he would bite me. He will warn you if he is not comfortable with you getting too close or guarding something (only twice in the time he has been with us), so you have to be able to read his body language and respect his space. Spike has good house manners, although has the potential to be a counter surfer. That said, all he wants to do is be with his people, so he would be perfectly content just laying at your feet and sleeping while you work. He is a playful and mischievous boy, so he definitely needs to be with an active family that knows and understands malamutes well.  Spike has been in foster with another large, active dog and is doing really well, so a large play buddy would be a good thing! No cats though or other small furry creatures and in his exuberance Spike might bowl small humans over but is otherwise a very friendly boy!
