Marit,
Yes, I have found a great deal of frustration trying to find a male which is not fixed by the rescue groups.   While I understand and sympathize with the goals of the policies, it doesn't help my seach much.    I have met quite a few wonderful dogs who were it not for this issue, would have a home.

My lab grew up with an intact male Malamute who was very "alpha".   I am not sure what kind of imprinting she had, however she is also very "alpha" and very assertive around altered males.   

We have introduced  5 altered male dogs to her with identical results, which is agressive dominance behavior.    However when we have friend's unaltered pets over, she is calm, friendly and somewhat submissive.   She also is assertive with females.

In speaking with our vet about it, he said it was unusual, however it may be she can tell the difference by scent or behavior, and "disrespects" the altered males.

His suggestion was to find an intact male and give it a vascectomy.   No problem here...just can't seem to find any at this point.   

Soo....back to the want ads and all the flaky people out there.    I never thought finding another dog would be so difficult.

I am looking for a companion dog for my female yellow lab. Her previous companion, an Alaskan Malamute died of old age a few months ago, and she needs a friend and playmate. In addition, I miss having a second dog.

WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR:
I am looking for a large to extra large young male dog (6mos to 2 years), preferably a Shepherd or a Shepherd mixed with Lab, Malamute, Husky, or Great Dane.

The ideal dog would tend towards being a large shepherd type with a short coat. Stand up ears a must. Dark colouring preferred but all colour types considered.¬  He does not have to be purebred.

The dog must *not* be neutered, as my female (who is spayed)does not respect fixed males. If you are a rescue group who would allow a certified vasectomy in leiu of full neutering, that is fine too.¬  I do not intend to breed this dog, nor use him for guarding/security purposes.¬  He is to be strictly a family pet.

Here are some images of dog types I am looking for:

I have a very loving home with a large yard and lots of attention being paid to the dogs. Whatever dog we end up with will be given our total love and affection in a safe, clean home.

If you have a dog which meets the above description, or know of one, please contact me at the e-mail address below.¬  Or Call me at 530-218-6488. Photos are appreciated.

Thank you!
