Alaskan Malamute > Giant Alaskan Malamute vs. Alaskan Malamute


Barked: Thu Nov 15, '12 12:20pm PST 
Giant Alaskan Malamute absolutely exist but many breeders say no.
Breeders especially registered breeders can only breed standard size so they won't make money if they agree that Giants exist since they don't have them.
M'Loot is a recognized giant breed. They we're bred to be bigger than the standard Mal especially for sledding. One giant does the work of 3 standard Alaskan Malamute.
Not to mention that personally i think the giant Alaskan Malamute is much more stunning than a standard.
Getting a standard Mal is like getting a regular dog. Ho-hum, yawn, boring.
Giant Alaskan Malamute (I have 2) are absultely stunning creatures that sometime stop traffic, literarly not to mention have an amazing gentle giant tempermant. IMO a standard mal is like getting a husky and why would I do that?Alaskan Malamutes we're bred to be big from the beginning. Its today's breeders that are breeding them to this ridiculous standard size.

Just curious...
My male alaskan malamute pup weighs 23 pounds at 8 weeks old.
His father is a giant(31" at shoulders) and Mom is very small (20" at shoulders).
What did your Mal weigh as a puppy and how big is he/she now?
Any ideas as to how big mine will get?
Thanks for your input
