The Alaskan Malamute is native to the arctic region, where it depended on its thick coat to survive the extreme cold. He was first recorded living among the Mahlemuts in Alaska (Malamute means "village of the Mahle"). Alaskan Malamutes were bred for their size and power to help bring the bodies of seals and polar bears back to the village. They have performed an essential function and have become valued workers and companions. The Alaskan Malamute was endangered by crossbreeding during the Alaska Gold Rush of 1896, but was rescued by an Alaskan Malamute breeder and enthusiast in New England in the 1920s, and its popularity then increased. The Alaskan Malamutes rose to fame as part of Admiral Byrd's trip to the South Pole in 1933 and served as pack dogs and search and rescue dogs during World War II. They are the strong and relentless prototypical sled dog. Buy healthy, purebred Alaskan Malamute puppies direct from ethical breeders.

Alaskan Malamutes have a shoulder height of 58 to 63,5 cm (23 to 25 in) and weigh between 34 to 38,5 kg (75 to 85 lb). With broad heads and heavy bones, they are built to pull weight. Alaskan Malamutes have large muzzles, brown almond-shaped eyes, and triangular, rounded ears. They have straight backs and large feet, with feathered tails that curl over their backs. “Giant” Malamutes that weigh over 140 pounds are sometimes bred, but not as show dogs. Alaskan Malamutes are slightly longer than they are tall.
The Alaskan Malamute has a dense double coat. The outer layer is thick and coarse and the undercoat is oily and woolly. The coat is either pure white or a mixture of white with gray, sand, black or red, with white paws and muzzle. The coat of Alaskan Malamutes grows in winter and sheds it in spring.
The Alaskan Malamute is friendly, affectionate, and loyal, but can have a mind of its own. They are energetic like puppies for many years, but mellow at an older age. Alaskan Malamutes maintain very close ties with their owners. They don't mind living outdoors as long as sufficient human company is available. Alaskan Malamutes are generally calm, but can howl and like to dig.
Alaskan Malamutes generally get along well with children, especially older children. Their kindness makes them somewhat unsuitable as guard dogs. The Alaskan Malamute should be watched around smaller breeds or other pets due to a strong prey instinct. They can be aggressive towards other Alaskan Malamutes of the same sex. Early socialization is important to help the Alaskan Malamute get along with other animals.
The Alaskan Malamute does not require frequent grooming, but good combing with a coarse comb is necessary when shedding hair. Alaskan Malamutes have litters of 4 to 10 choits and a lifespan of 10 to 12 years. They are susceptible to musculoskeletal and dermatological diseases. They are generally not suited to hot climates and need plenty of shade, water, and cooling when living in hot areas. Alaskan Malamutes eat what they are fed, so avoid overfeeding to avoid obesity.
Although they are friendly and well behaved, Alaskan Malamutes need a firm approach in their training to achieve obedience. Some Alaskan Malamutes can be difficult to train.
The Alaskan Malamute needs a lot of exercise. At least an hour a day of strenuous exercise is desirable. Alaskan Malamutes love to pull a sled or cart, but also run and walk. Alaskan Malamutes can become depressed and aggressive if they are not allowed to exercise.
