Alaskan Malamute Puppies for Sale
Alaskan Malamute mixes tend to be large, powerful and energetic dogs that do best in sizable spaces allowing them to roam freely and burn off their energy. Although Alaskan Malamute mixes can have multiple lineages, most carry the traditional traits of the dominate Alaskan Malamute including their traditional thick coats of fur that are known to keep them warm in colder environments much like Alaska, where they originated from. Most Alaskan Malamute mixes are suitable for families with children and willingly embrace the playfulness and rough housing nature of younger children.

Coat & Coat Care
The coats of Alaskan Malamute Mixes can vary in color, but almost always have a thick fur coat that require daily grooming. Frequently trimming the hair around their paws is also recommended to avoid matting and build-up of bacteria that can quickly become painful to them when walking.
- Thick & full coats
- Frequent Grooming Required
They shed twice a year heavily, or “blow” their coat, shedding large amounts of fur. The dog will require thorough brush-outs each day during this time.
Although some owners who live in warmer climates are tempted to shave the coat, this is not recommended. The double coat keeps the dog cooler, and shaved dogs are more susceptible to heat strokes.
