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 Malamute stands well over the pads, and this stance gives the appearance of much activity and a proud carriage, with head erect and eyes alert showing interest and curiosity. The head is broad. Ears are triangular and erect when alerted. The muzzle is bulky, only slight diminishing in width from root to nose. The muzzle is not pointed or long, yet not stubby. The coat is thick with a coarse guard coat of sufficient length to protect a woolly undercoat. Malamutes are of various colors. Face markings are a distinguishing feature.

The Alaskan Malamute is an affectionate, friendly dog, not a "one man" dog. He is a loyal, devoted companion, playful in invitation, but generally impressive by his dignity after maturity.

The hunting instinct in these dogs is strong, and this means that you should be careful when he is around other animals or when he is loose - make sure that your yard or garden is securely fenced in order to stop him from escaping and running riot! Although a great companion and very loving, the Alaskan Malamute can be headstrong and stubborn, so they are best suited to those with experience in dog ownership who can quickly establish who is boss.

Breed recognition for the Alaskan Malamute came in 1935, the same year that the Alaskan Malamute Club of America was formed. The original registration period for AKC was very short, just long enough to get enough dogs registered to provide a base on which the breed could grow and develop.
The life expectancy of the Alaskan Malamute is around 10-12 years. There are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed, and this includes thyroid problems, bleeding disorders, Chd, cataracts, ligament problems, skin conditions, and autoimmune problems. Parents of your puppy should have OFA and CERF certification, and Chd clearance is also recommended. These dogs do not fare well in warmer climates, and need to be protected from the heat.
