With the same markings as huskies, the Alaskan malamute has a semi-long coat composed of fur and undercoat. Its undercoat is dense, making it able to do well in very cold climates without problems. It can withstand sub-zero temperatures well and is in a good mood even close to -15°C. In Brazil, especially in summer and spring, the malamute can shed a lot. Daily brushing is indicated to maintain the health of its coat and rid it of the “clumps” of dead hair that commonly adhere to its body. Its color can vary between black and gray, with paws, belly and part of the face always white.
The breed sheds a lot of fur in summer and spring. Taking care of his coat is essential so that he doesn't get tufts stuck on his body and doesn't spread them all over the house. Using a brush suitable for your coat type makes the job a lot easier. As it is a large dog that needs a lot of activity, it may not have many options in the city. Malamutes can gain more weight than they should in such cases. Keep an eye out and create a routine for your pet that allows him to get regular exercise. More "heavy" games can also be an option, as they are used to carrying objects, for example.
