Overview
Alaskan Malamutes are large working dogs. They have been used through the years as sled dogs, but aren't naturally as fast in the long run as there blue-eyed competition (huskies). Originally bred as a sled dog they were taught to think independently which sometimes results in them being a bit stubborn. Absolutely magnificent coloration and such a beautiful and strong overall build. Highly intelligent and loyal they are certain to make a nice family pet.
Character
The Alaskan Malamute is friendly, affectionate, and loyal, but can have a mind of its own. Although a hardy breed hereditary health problems may include hip dysplasia, chondrodysplasia, and bloat. Life expectancy is around 12-15 years.

Does your Alaskan Malamute bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Extraordinarily loyal, intelligent, and friendly. After maturity the Alaskan Malamute usually settles in to a nice calm and quiet adult. With their friendly personality, they really aren't suitable as a guard dog. Although very intelligent they can prove to be stubborn. They have strong instinct so it's advised to keep an eye on them around small animals.
Care
The Alaskan Malamute has a very thick and coarse coat and would do well with a good brushing twice a week. They are very heavy shedders and there undercoat comes out in clumps twice a year. Bathes for this breed really aren't necessary as they easily shed dirt. Also as an energetic working dog they do best with some space to run or a walk at least twice a day.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
This breed sports a very beautiful double coat. The top coat is thick and coarse protecting it from even the most extreme weather conditions. Beneath the coarse coat is a very soft, dense, and oily coat. Colors may include light grays shading to black as well as sables to red. The legs and muzzle nearly always white.
Training
Bred for sledding and independence the Alaskan Malamute can prove to be stubborn. Don't let the stubbornness fool you though because they are highly intelligent! Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Alaskan Malamute puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
Alaskan Malamutes are very energetic and active. If you have the space they will run and play outside all day. Make sure to monitor them if the conditions are too hot. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Would it be considered okay to have a malamute and live in Miami? As you might know we don't have winter at all and it can be very hot in the summer. If the answer is affirmative then what breeder of Giant Malamute puppies would you recommend

No, I would never recommend you get a Malamute when living in the area you live. This is a Northern breed that was bred for cold and cooler weather. The heat of Miami would be too much and the risk of heat-stroke, dehydration and potential death is too great. This is a beautiful breed of dog, but please choose a breed that would do better in the area that you live.

We live in NC and the summers are very hot 90-100, and very mild winters. Would these temperatures be too hot for a Alaskan Malamute? I don't want the dog to be uncomfortable.

The temperatures in the summer would be too hot for an Alaskan Malamute. Really, the only way for the dog to be comfortable during the winter is that the dog is inside with A.C, is routinely brushed thoroughly to eliminate bulk hair, has access to cool fresh water at all times and is not walked during the day time when it is at its hottest. Though they are amazing dogs, I do not think the Alaskan would do well in your area. I would suggest possibly a Smooth Collie, or an Alaskan Husky. Which both have less fur and could do fine in your area granted you keep them cool during those hot summers.

Anonymous asked:
Is there really a breed that is a "giant" Alaskan malamute or is this just some breeder saying that their dogs are bigger than every one else?

There are two strains of the Alaskan Malamute breed, the standard and the giant. The standard Alaskan Malamute is recognized by the AKC, CKC and UKC. While the giant is not. The giant Alaskan Malamute is a sub-species of the standard Alaskan Malamute that was bred to be much larger by the native people hundreds of years ago. Several breeders have continued with those lines to keep the sub-breed alive today.

There is natural variation within the breed. That being said if a breeder breeds for giants structure and temperament may be overlooked and they are definitely not breeding to improve the breed or meet the breeds standard.
