Giant Alaskan Malamute: Dog Breed Info And Facts

The alaskan malamute is a descendant of the domesticated breed of wolf dogs that migrated to North America about 4000 years ago

The Giant variety is simply the larger version of the Standard Alaskan and is not a separate breed. The giant alaskan can reach a weight of 100-150 pounds.

These dogs fail as watchdogs due to their friendly temperament. Despite their size, they just come across as cuddly bears

These dogs are very suitable for family living as long as they get exercise and stimulation. Their big size can seem daunting to smaller kids as they could knock them over while scampering.

Alaskans are usually okay with other dogs, but they can get a bit territorial and are motivated by food. Their ancestors would go miles with a limited food supply, which is still in-built into their system.

The Alaskan Malamute is the official state dog of Alaska. The dues for this go to the Polaris K-12 school, which took up the initiative as a school project to the Alaskan legislature.

The white malamute is one of the most sought-after dog colors in this breed.  They come in various colors, such as black and white or gray and white
