  • Overview

  • As you might think, this dog originates in Alaska, where it was bred to withstand icy temperatures and to hunt and pull sleds. Often misidentified as Siberian Huskies because of the two breeds’ similar coat coloring, Malamutes are actually much larger and stronger than Huskies. They have sweet, friendly personalities and do well with children and other dogs. Malamutes are devoted, affectionate pets and do well with active families.
