Home / Term / A / ALASKAN MALAMUTE

The Alaskan Malamute is a high energy, trainable, and a big fun partner to its lovers. The Alaskan Malamute was originally bred for strength and endurance but later became a sled dog. It had the ability to go on long distance journey and help to haul light freight. It can be quickly recognized by its thick, double coat which comes in gray, black or red but always with white or in all white.
Alaskan Malamutes are believed to have been developed before the 19th century by the Malemuit Inupiaq people of Alaska. The male weighs about130 pounds and the female weighs about 95 pounds. The height of a typical Alaskan Malamute varies between 22cm – 26cm.
The temperament of the Alaskan Malamute can be very harsh especially towards smaller animals. It can be a tough pet to keep at home with other animals and may find it hard to get along. Nonetheless, it is a very loyal, hardworking, and energetic dog.
Lastly, by their nature, Alaskan Malamutes require a lot of exercise, outdoor games, and running. It may not be an ideal dog to leave at home while at work. However, with a dedicated dog walker, there won’t be need for any worries.
