Alaskan Malamute CharacteristicsAlaskan Malamute Characteristics

A tough and powerful dog, the Alaskan Malamute followed the early Alaskans from their journey from either Asia or Scandinavia. This dog roamed the vast arctic snows for millennia before white man ever even set foot upon the land. The Alaskan Malamute was bred for power and not for speed.

Alaskan Malamute HistoryAlaskan Malamute History

The Mahlemut people of the arctic were nomads who traveled to new hunting grounds on a continual basis. The Alaskan Malamute was required to be very strong to pull the contents of the village from place to place. Early European explorers and Russian sailors were keenly aware of the beauty of the Alaskan Malamute and the affection that the Mahlemuts had for their dogs.
