Dog of the month: Alaskan Malamute

The Alaskan Malamute is the largest and the oldest of the Arctic sled dogs. They have a quiet and dignified temperament, and are known for their loyalty to their owners. They were originally bred to carry large loads over long distances, but today, many are family pets.

This breed is athletic and enjoy sledding, weight-pulling, back-packing, jogging, and swimming. The Alaskan Malamute is a brown eyed, heavy dog, bred for power and endurance. They're known for being affectionate and friendly. They're intelligent and learns quickly, but can also be quite stubborn.

Average height is 23-25 inches, and average weight 75-85 lbs. They have a double coat, and the undercoat can be up to two inches long, protecting from harsh weather.
