The Alaskan Malamute formally originates from Alaska with descendants from the Mahlemut tribe. The breed is best known as the oldest and largest of the Arctic sled dog breeds, which include the Siberian Husky, the Samoyed, and the American Eskimo Dog. The Malamute is almost always confused with the more popular Siberian Husky due to the coat color and markings, although that is the only similarity these two breeds have.
Malamutes differ in size, structure, temperament, and ability. The Malamute stands around 25 to 28 inches tall and weighs up to 100 pounds, which makes it larger than the Husky. The heavy weight of the dog mainly comes from its dense bones and massive muscle structure throughout its body. This gives the breed its exceptional strength, and endurance to pull large loads over long distances in the bitter arctic climate of Alaska. Having a thick double coat gives the breed an advantage in harsh cold weather, surviving temperatures of almost 70 degrees under freezing!
Coat colors on a Malamutes range from different shadings of sable, red, and black with various white markings along the face and body. The eyes of this breed are almond shaped with colorings of usually dark to light shades of brown, although in rare cases Malamutes are able have blue colored eyes.
The Malamute's temperament is mostly affectionate and caring, a dog that gets along with anyone with an impressive loyalty to its master. However, it is recommended that this breed be kept away from children as they get pretty rough with their playing and physical interactions. Malamutes tend to not cope well with other animals, including other dogs, due to their hunting instinct and reign of dominance. Being an independent breed, the Malamute tends to be stubborn and they have a slow pace when it comes to training so it is rather difficult to train them in obedience type commands.
George Lucas, director and producer of Star Wars, was known to have an Alaskan Malamute named Indiana who inspired him to create the character Chewbacca in Star Wars. Indiana also gave George Lucas the idea to name his character after him in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Various times, Alaskan Malamutes were used to star as wolves in movies because of their broad wolf like appearance. Overall, the Alaskan Malamute is a trusting companion who will always stand by the side of those who matter to them and protect those in need when trouble is sensed.This text was written by ConSuerte081
