The Alaskan Malamute is a very strong, intelligent, and ancient Aboriginal type dog that is accustomed to surviving in the harsh conditions of Alaska, with extremely low temperatures and a minimum amount of food. The history of the breed is inextricably linked with the ancient peoples inhabiting Siberia. Several thousand years ago, these dogs made the transition together with the tribes that migrated from Siberia to Alaska and then settled in a new place.
Alaskan Malamutes are very energetic dogs, intelligent, and highly trainable. They are gentle and loving animals.
