Hi, no it doesn't puff up if I get scratched. Malamutes and huskies are supposed to be more hypo allergenic than many other breeds, so not sure why I am like this. It is summer and it could be hayfever, but I have not havd hayfever since I was 14 years old, so I am thinking that it must be something else. I am allergic to cats and was looking to see if malamute fur was like cat fur at all.
