What is the website. I would like to see the poor creatures. I bet they are darling.

I don't know anything about them. But I bet that they are fine pets.

My hubby's family has a malamute and they are beautiful dogs. As for temperment, they are very much one owner dogs. They are friendly with people so they make lousy guard dogs. They have EXTREMELY high prey drives and will chase and most likely kill small rodents and animals, like cats. Cusco, my family-in-laws mal, killed our baby rabbit 2 days after we brought him home. They are usually aggressive with other dogs of the same sex, and the males are very alpha if not tought properly from the get go. They are very strong and stubborn and don't like a lot of "rules". They are definitely not good dogs for first time dog owners and are a lot to handle if you physically don't have the strength. Cusco is a whopping 126lbs and he knows what he is capable of. He is very much aware of his size and will only take so much from someone before getting grumpy. Of course, training is always the key to a successful relationship with any dog, but be prepared for a fight with mals as they are quite the challenge.

Malamutes are very similar to Siberian huskies. They are absolutely gorgeous dogs. They usually are very even tempered, loyal and loving animals. They love to be members of dog sled teams as well.
