COVID 19

In an Effort to Protect

Updated 12/27/2020: We felt it was necessary to address the COVID 19 virus situation by offering this page for our site visitors, potential deposit holders, and puppy families in waiting. We are honoring and respecting the advice and direction of our state and local officials, and we are also following the advice of our veterinarian, PACFA, and the information provided by the CDC and WHO. Due to the fact that COVID 19 is a new virus, they suggest limiting contact not only person-to-person, but also with animals. There is some concern that COVID 19 could possibly infect dogs (animals). Our dogs are our family, and therefore they get the same consideration and protection as we do.

Please know our current deposit holders will be required to bring and wear facial masks properly covering their nose and mouths. We will provide gloves, and you will be required to spray your shoes with Lysol disinfectant spray or SNiPER (we will provide) when you arrive. We are no longer allowing direct contact with our adult dogs or puppies, unless for the purpose of puppy picks. We will honor the “6 foot rule” and ask that visits are kept within a one hour time-frame. Please do NOT come if you feel sick, are running a fever, or have been in contact with anyone who has either been diagnosed with COVID 19 or was showing symptoms of possible infection for at least 2 weeks after last contact.

If you are a current deposit holder and have been directly impacted by the COVID 19 virus, please know that we will work with you so that if you are in quarantine, you can still make your puppy pick, and if need be, we can hold your baby until you are well enough to come pick them up. If you need to switch litters to a later date due to job loss or other changes in circumstances, please just reach out to us so we can figure out a solution for you. PLEASE do NOT take on puppy ownership if you are experiencing financial difficulties, unstable living arrangements or illness. You must be able to financially, mentally, and physically be able to provide a new puppy with what they need, for life. 

We feel it would be negligent and selfish, as professional and responsible breeders, as well as a family, to take any unnecessary risks at this time and hope that we can count on everyone’s support and understanding. Please see the links below for information regarding COVD 19 and other sources of information. Please know these links will take you away from our site, we have no control, authority, or affiliation with any of these 3rd party sites.

Our hearts go out to all those who have already been directly impacted by this virus, and we offer our prayers and support to all of you. You can still follow us on our Instagram @mountain_life_malamutes
