When someone says Alaskan Malamute, the first thing that comes to mind is the large fluffy dog breed. As its name implies, the Alaskan Malamute has its roots in the Alaskan region, specifically northwestern Alaska.
Despite its large size, the Alaskan Malamute is a high-energy dog. Originally bred as a sled dog, they also served as a great hunter and an even greater family pet. Due to extremely cold climates and ruff weather conditions, the Alaskan Malamute acquired a thick double coat with a very dense undercoat.
This is why most Alaskan Malamute mixes inherit fluffy coats that keep them warm during cold days.
Besides that, Alaskan Malamute mixes are usually well-balanced pooches because they are unique combinations of different parent breeds.
So, if you are one of those indecisive dog lovers who can’t quite tell if they want a Siberian Husky or an Alaskan Malamute, then you’re in the right place.
Check out some of the most beautiful and mind-blowing (or should I say coat-blowing) Alaskan Malamute mixes below!

Parent breeds: Akita Inu and Alaskan Malamute
The first on our list is the Akitamute – a large Akita Inu mix that inherits a very unique personality.
Most Akitamutes inherit a thick medium-length coat. But, if there’s a long-haired Akita Inu in the mix, the Akitamute offspring might take on some of the long hair genes.
Additionally, their coats can come in many colors, including gray and white, silver, brindle, fawn, black, and white with markings.
Because of their strong will, Akitamute mix breed puppies require an experienced dog owner that won’t hesitate to show dominance.
2. Alaskan Chow
The Alaskan Chow is a medium to large dog. Depending on which parent breed it leans more towards, Alaskan Chows usually weigh from 55 to 85 pounds, but they can become larger.

6. Alaskan Pitbull

Most Corgimutes are short pups that grow up to 12 or 15 inches tall. They inherit the Corgi’s short legs but the Alaskan Malamute’s fluffy head shape and size.
Their double coats shed a lot, but they are relatively easy to groom because they don’t require much upkeep. You can expect a Corgimute puppy to shed more during fall and spring.
They usually inherit the Corgi’s stubbornness along with the Alaskan Malamute’s high energy levels and high prey drive. This means that the Corgimute will need extensive obedience training and early socialization.

Parent breeds: Standard Poodle and Alaskan Malamute
Poodle mixes are already soft and fluffy, but the Malamoodle is something else! Its softness is out of this world!

The Malaweiler is a great family dog that protects and loves all family members. It can inherit black and tan Rottweiler colors, along with the Alaskan Malamute’s fluffy coat.

Even if you are an experienced dog owner, you might not like the unpredictable nature of this Alaskan Malamute mix.
What a load of fluff! Am I right?

Estimating a mixed breed puppy’s size might be confusing, but once you get enough information on both parent breeds, it will be easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Keep in mind that all Alaskan Malamute mixes are not recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC), so they cannot participate in dog shows and competitions.
If you decide to get an Alaskan Malamute mix puppy make sure to search for reputable breeders of purebred Alaskan Malamute dogs or try searching for shelters and rescues.
