Alaskan Malamute Bio
The Alaskan Malamute, one of the oldest Arctic sled dogs, is a powerful and substantially built dog with a deep chest and strong, well-muscled body.
The Alaskan Malamute is the oldest of the Arctic sled dog breeds, and is a close cousin to the Russian Samoyed and the Siberian Husky. Malamutes were instrumental in bringing supplies and people during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s. Malamutes have long been the preferred sled racer and sledge dog. Most notably, the Alaskan Malamute is the chosen breed to pull the sleds of Admiral Richard Byrd on his expedition to the South Pole.
The usual colors range from light gray through intermediate shadings to black, sable, and shadings of sable to red. The only solid color allowable is all white.
Alaskan Malamute puppies are affectionate and friendly. They are loyal, devoted companions, playful in invitation, but generally impressive by their dignity after maturity.
