Some Information Regarding a Alaskan Malamute Puppy
The alaskan malamute puppy is a larger, wolf like, type of breed that was primarly used as a sled dog. Most often the malamute puppy is easily mistaken for the siberian husky puppy, they they are in fact much different other than appearance.

For this reason, you can typically see a nice size difference between both sexes. Male malamutes have been known to get up towards 120 pounds, but isn't as common unless you are talk to someone who specializes in "giant malamutes" breeding.
A alaskan malamute puppies coat is a very dense and double layer. It actually is a bit thicker than it's smaller breed of the siberian husky. This helps with harsher weathers, while its outer coat helps with blocking the suns rays to help with summer time heat.

The adult alaskan malamute's tail is usually very furry and can curl up over the back. The furried tail aids in helping them stay warm for cold weathers. You will notice how they wrap the tail around their nose and face.
The average life time of a alaskan malamute is around 11 years. The more comonly assosicated health problems were hip dysplasia and cataracts. Some more rare cases have been heart defects, chondrodysplasia, and eye problems.
