The sur­vivor

FHM (Philippines) - - VERGE -

Be­hind the Alaskan Mal­mute’s hand­some face lies gen­er­a­tions worth of en­dur­ing one of the most hos­tile en­vi­ron­ments on the planet—the Arc­tic. Hid­den po­ten­tial:

Jun Sunga, who’s been han­dling Mal­mutes since 2008, ex­plains, “it’s not just the cold. They can ac­tu­ally sur­vive with very lit­tle food.” Mal­mutes who’d serve as Eski­mos’ pets needed to make do with scraps, as the good por­tions would go to their masters.”

Fun fact: The Star Wars se­ries’ Chew­bacca was ac­tu­ally in­spired by Ge­orge Lu­cas’s pet Mal­mute.
