I am fairly sure this is the wrong place to post this, as it has nothing to do with Mushing (for now at least).
I am new to Fairbanks, just moved up here last summer, and am interested in getting a dog. I am eventually (in the next 10 years) interested in getting into dog mushing, but at the moment don't have the finances or space. I am interested in getting a sled dog type dog such as a Husky or Malamute, I have quite a lot of experience with dog ownership and have owned an Akita in the past, so I am quite sure I can work with this type of dog. I am not set on a pure blood Husky or Malamute, but I really enjoy the look of those breeds. I have looked quite extensively online for something in the Fairbanks area but have not found anything that I can afford. I was interested to know if anyone on this forum would be able to point me in the right direction for finding a dog. I am only interested in finding a puppy, as this dog will be a pet, and I want to build a good relationship with it from early on. If anyone on here knows of someone who is selling Husky/Malamute or Husky/Malamute mix puppies I would appreciate any information you can give me. The most I would be able to pay for such a dog is $500 or less (less would be very nice).
Thank you all again for your help.
