The Alaskan Malamute was used as a sled dog as they have great strength and endurance. These dogs weigh as much as 120 lbs. with a height of about 28 inches for males and females are a bit smaller. They have a double coat with a thick undercoat and come in all white, or a mix of white with gray, sable, black or red. These dogs are good with people but sometimes known to chase smaller animals so they need to be taught to get used to smaller pets and small children. Great house dogs but require plenty of time outdoors. Malamutes are quieter and do not bark much.
