Kato Potato as he is affectionately known is my son' Oliver's Alaskan Malamute, he joined us when he was an owner return to his breeder and we offered him a permanent home, We all have learnt the art of wooing as Mals are so vocal and you can't help but join in. He has a wonderful temperament and is so tolerant with puppies. He wouldn't admit it but the Rott girls frighten him, he is a bit of a wuss !! I do understand why Malamutes owners have a house full as they are a lovely breed to own BUT when they blow their coat prepare for serious hoover action!
