Examples and colors of the Alaskan Malamute

The different colors

The Alaskan Malamute coat is composed of 2 layers:

  • external coat with rough, straight coverage and well away from the body, never drooping, forming a thick necklace
  • sub-thick coat of 2.5 to 5 cm long, woolly, slightly smooth and impervious
The coat of females may be shorter and softer. During the summer period, the coat is less dense. Among the serious defects, there is a long hair, too soft, wavy or missing sub-haired.

The Alaskan Malamute has always white on its belly, on a part of its members and on its mask.

Among the different colors permitted, the Malamute can have:
  • Black : black guard hair with a black or dark gray undercoat

  • Alaskan seal : Seal dogs have black guard hairs, but their undercoats are cream or white. They appear to be "black & white" from a distance, but upon closer examination are not because they have the light undercoat

  • Sable : Black or gray guard hairs with a reddish undercoat and trimmings. Some may seem to have "dirty faces" as their white markings may not be truly white but instead have a red cast. Some sables are quite dark, others are much lighter.
