Alaskan Malamutes are often confused with a husky. However, although the ancestor of these rocks is common, they are completely different. Malamutes are larger, but less graceful. They are more hardy. Husky can be harnessed to a sled, but they are more likely runners for speed. Unlike husky, Malamute can carry heavy loads for several kilometers.
There are differences in eye color. Blue eyes are acceptable for a husky, but for malamute they are considered a disqualifying defect.
