Tug is our Dog of the Month for January 2023


Tug, the Alaskan Malamute

His favorite things included playing with his dog sisters, tiny dog toys (even though he was 100+lbs), cuddling, every single person he met, the snow, and cold weather. His love language was leaning his big body against your legs for a “hug”. He was the biggest, sweetest, most gentle boy.  In loving memory of our Tuggy Bear, Feb 2016 – July 2020.



Dog Day Getaway’s Dog of the Month photography is brought to you by Kasey and Tyler Rajotte of Studio Twelve:52/Twelve:52 Pets. They have 5 rescue pups of their own – (all fittingly named after Marvel comic book characters) – who also love coming to DDG. So, chances are your furkid(s) and theirs have played together! This is their 11th year documenting wagging tails, nose boops, and slobbery puppy kisses – and when they aren’t doing that they are photographing weddings and families.
