The Alaskan Malamute is the official state dog of Alaska and its history can be traced back 3000 years to the
Kobuk Inupiat tribe of upper western Alaska. Originally bred for use as a sled dog, the large brown eyed dog is often mistaken for the smaller, blue eyed husky. The breed is fond of people and is a sought-after family house dog.
My nephew owns a Malamute named Cailan and shown below is a drawing of his beloved dog.
