All dogs bark. Is that true? Well no. Not all dogs bark, but most do.
The Alaskan Malamute is the oldest of the Arctic dogs. This dog breed is very large, strong and incredibly good looking. It’s a powerful, well built muscular dog with a deep chest, wide head and a proud expression. It is family oriented and loves to be with people.
It does well with older children but they must be taught to treat this dog with kindness. The Malamute is extremely loyal intelligent and affectionate. It is very friendly and therefore doesn’t make an effective guard dog. It does not like hot, humid weather, it’s well suited for colder climates.
The coat can be white, black & white, gray, wolf sable and red, often with darker highlights and sometimes with a dark mask or cap. This dog breed also has an off-white undercoat. The legs and muzzle are almost always white.
The alaskan malamute has thick coat with a course outer oat and a dense undercoat. The coat averages one to three inches in length. This breed is prone to heavy shedding and requires brushing at least twice a week.
It’s sensitive to eye problems, hip dysplasia, and chondrodysplasia. To minimize the risk of your Malamute developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy an Alaskan Malamute puppy from a reputable breeder.
