** RUHMANNS' ALASKAN MALAMUTES **
It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to begin downsizing towards the goal of closing our kennel the end of 2015. Click here to read our letter to our patrons and suggestions on how to select the kennel from which to purchase your family pet.
The Alaskan Malamute is truly magnificent in both beauty and character! It has been our experience that lovers of the Alaskan Malamute are devoted to the breed and, when one is lost for whatever reason, they generally seek to welcome another Mal into their home!
We are committed to ensuring that our puppies are placed in homes where they will be loved and well-cared for. Towards that end, it is essential that both our puppies and the family that has chosen to adopt them are equally happy with the decision to welcome an Alaskan Malamute into the home. We continually update the information on this site in an effort to educate those considering the adoption of an adult Alaskan Malamute or the purchase of an Alaskan Malamute puppy - and we encourage prospective "parents" to research other sites as well to enable them to make an informed decision whether the Alaskan Malamute is compatible with the family's lifestyle. For that reason, this site is a continuing "work in progress" - your patience is appreciated. Photographs of our Alaskan Malamutes, as well as past puppies as they grow, are updated periodically, so be certain to visit our website often!
As our puppies grow, we invite "adoptive parents" to send us pictures to be placed on our website. This enables all of us to watch our "babies" grow and lets prospective "parents" select the "look" they want in an Alaskan Malamute. The "slide shows" created for each dam are still accessible and showcase puppies placed over the years. For example, to view pictures of past puppies from Mercedes .. click on "Mercedes' Family Album.1". Underneath each picture, I note the pup's name, the names of the dam/sire and the state where the pup lives. Please visit our "Family Albums" (first, click on "Slide Show" to your left, then, click on each slide show)!
Additionally, a new feature has been added to our site! A photo album includes the most recent pictures of our puppies as they grow with their new families! For all those who send regular photos of the pups engaged in their favorite activities, we thank you! We truly appreciate being able to watch our puppies grow and we are equally proud of their accomplishments as they tackle obedience training, weight/sled pulling, carting, training/certification as "assistance" or "therapy" dogs, or graduates of the Canine Good Citizenship program!
Chinook and Yukon (right) are brothers ... puppies of ours' that used to compete in weight-pulling in Colorado. They are now "retired". I created a page for them to showcase their accomplishments!
