Malamute - Husky - Would you know the difference between the breeds?

While it can be hard to tell the difference between the Alaskan Malamute and the Siberian Husky (just look at those piercing eyes, smushable double coat, and handsome faces - what’s a pooch lover to do?!), there are actually quite a few. So, if you’re thinking about adopting one of the two, pet sitting, or finding a sitter, this info on the difference between the two breeds might be handy.

We had a beautiful husky named Tasha for sixteen years. We got her when she was six months old and our eldest son was a toddler. She was the most affectionate and gentle dog and a bundle of energy! She unfortunately developed hip problems and we made the painful decision to make the appointment end her pain but she passed away the day prior. We still miss her!


Thank you @Globetrotter what a wonderful life you had together and what beautiful memories, I’m sure Tasha and your son were the very best of friends growing up together.

No matter how much time passes we still miss them … they are family after all.

I’m sure she was beautiful, inside and out, thank you for sharing.

@Angela-HeadOfCommunity this post brought back beautiful memories of a gorgeous Siberian Husky puppy we met called Baby aka “Baby Spice” when we were in Swedish Lapland last November. Such a cutie. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
