Alaskan Malamute

Alaskan Malamutes are a large-bodied breed of dog known for their strength and endurance as sled dogs. With a lineage of breeding that predates the modern 19th century characterization of dog breeds, the Alaskan Malamute is believed to have been bred by the Thule people of Siberia over 1,000 years ago. While Alaskan Malamutes have a strong work ethic that makes them historically great sled dogs that could haul people or freight goods over long distances, they are also very loved family dogs due to their playful, happy, and affectionate personalities. The Alaskan Malamute has a thick weatherproof coat with a variety of light (typically monochromatic) colors on white.

The average Alaskan Malamute has an overall height of 29.5"-34.5" (75-88 cm), withers height of 23.0”-25.0" (58-64 cm), and body length of 35.0"-41.5" (89-105 cm). A typical Alaskan Malamute weighs between 75-85 lb (34-39 kg) and has a lifespan of roughly 10-15 years.
