Alaskan Malador History

The Alaskan Malamute is a strong, active sled dog that was originally used by the Inuit people of northern Alaska. Historians believe that these sled dogs were among 12 different varieties of Spitz-type dogs that were brought to North America by European explorers. The Malamute shares a common ancestry with the Siberian Husky, the Samoyed and the Chow Chow. The Alaskan Malamute is a medium-sized working dog with a thick, double coat that is either red, black, gray or white. The coat is weather resistant, which helps the Malamute to withstand harsh northern temperatures. The Alaskan Malamute is a loyal, affectionate and devoted friend that is happiest when living in rural or suburban environments where it can spend time outdoors.
