Malamutes are self-confident, strong-willed, independent thinkers, intelligent and affectionate friendly dogs, unsuitable for guard work, although their size and appearance alone will usually discourage intruders. They are happiest as outdoor dogs, given sufficient companionship, but many thrive as house pets. They demand attention, and failing to receive enough, will become nuisances, howling like wolves and digging holes that would put any backhoe to shame. Malamutes are patient with children, but like all large dogs, should be supervised during play. For athletic people, Malamutes are ideal. They love backpacking, hiking and sledding. They can do well in obedience even though their great joy in life is to entertain the audience with a series of comedy antics.
Our Alaskan Malamute figurine has been meticulously hand painted. It measures 31/4" x 1 1/2" x 3 1/4" (L x W x H). He sports a silver colored chain necklace with a tag in the shape of a bone with the letters " K C " depicting its membership in our Kennel Club.
