The breed takes its name from the Mahle­mut tribe of Eski­mos who had de­vel­oped and used the breed for pulling heavy loads over long dis­tances. It is the strong­est of the sled dogs. Spitz-like in its fea­tures, the Malamute is built to sur­vive in a harsh en­vi­ron­ment, where it will of­ten sleep out­side in all weath­ers: even the in­sides of its ears are furred. The tail, car­ried like a wav­ing plume, is a hall­mark of breed type.
