 ALASKAN MALAMUTE DESCRIPTION
Standing on all fours at attention, the Alaskan Malamute is a vision of strength. Bred as a sledge dog, its frame is sturdy with strapping muscles. The tail is furry and curled. In its usual proud stance, the muzzle extends moderately from the large head and the ears set wide apart from each other, stand upright at attention or softly laid on the head. The chest is full and broadens towards the base of the neck. Characteristic of Alaskan breeds, the face has distinctive markings and modest features. The almond-shaped eyes are set at in angle and are usually dark. The Alaskan Malamute has a coat designed for harsh Alaskan winters; the undercoat is slick, fuzzy, and thick and the top or guard coat is thick and coarse. The coat is moderate in length, the longest hairs extending from the neck and shoulders.  Read More
