Acquired: Breeder (hobby breeder)
Posted February 14, 2014
Brought my gorgeous girl 7 years ago now. Originally went to buy an Alaskan Malamute, but ended up with a Mal x husky. Not very family oriented. Doesn't play with us. Doesn't like cuddles. Prefers to spend her time alone in the garden.
Used to be submissive with other dogs until attacked and now is a complete nightmare. Have had occasions where she's foaming at the mouth trying to kill another dog.
Bad off lead. Disappears despite years of attempted training. Bad with livestock. Hates cats.
Good with children to a degree. Always makes a fuss of them and can jump up to give them kisses. However don't trust her with my 3 year old as she can sometimes show pre warning signs of aggression. She lives with my parents now.
Brought my bully pup home and she was fine for about a week, then went for him for no reason dragged him across the room by his face piercing his eyeball with his tooth.
Food aggressive with other dogs. Stubborn. Will growl at you if she refuses to move and you go to move her.
Have met other people with Malamutes and heard similar stories and on the other hand they can't praise their dogs more.
Silly dogs to have in this country. Cold winters mean we have our heating on which is too hot for them. Summers mean walks before 10am and after 7pm due to sun. Please stop walking your 'snow' breeds in the middle of the day.
Talkative, howls / speaks on command or when she wants something.
Very loving towards me when I arrive at my parents but after about 2 -3 minutes of attention she's had enough and back to being alone.
