Alaskan Malamute

 

Origin:

 

The Alaskan Malamute is the oldest of the Arctic sled dog breeds, and is a close cousin to the Russian Samoyed and the Siberian Husky. Malamutes were instrumental in bringing supplies and people during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s. Malamutes have long been the preferred sled racer and sledge dog. Most notably, the Alaskan Malamute is the chosen breed to pull the sleds of Admiral Richard Byrd on his expedition to the South Pole.
