The Alaskan Malamute is often mistaken for a husky, but they are larger than most other "Spitz" type dogs, and that includes the husky. Malamutes are heavy, well-built dogs originally bred by the Mahlemuts, an Inuit tribe, to pull heavy sleds through the snow in some of the harshest conditions of the Arctic in western Alaska.
