    If what my google search just brought up is anything to go by (which isnt much at all) it seems that smaller malamutes are being called Malimu's in America.

    There are exceptions to every generalisation about any breed, and that is what your friend has IMO dan4nas.

    This is going to sound rude, but if you don't know the name of the breed it is obvious you haven't done research into them (Google, books, etc).

    They aren't a breed for beginners.
    Nice to see that I get flamed for incorrect spelling, if you read my post which I assume you did you would have noticed I said that it gives me time to research it, I thought I'd come here first and see if anyone knew anything about them etc! Anyways at the risk of sounding rude, it's what I want and what I will get, you can say any breed is difficult but at the end of the day every dog is different as you would know. Besides I'm always keen to train etc so it will be good for me as well as Tia.

    Luke, I realise this isn't what you're going to want to hear, but making sure that the breed suits you is incredibly important. I am sure that you can do the work and the training, but definitely make sure you know what you are getting into. Remember that every dog is different, has different needs, training requirements etc.

    The Mal is definitely not a dog suited to beginners, but definitely speak to breeders and find out if they have any dog in particular that is out of the norm for this breed. They are very independent, very headstrong and they have a thought pattern of "what's in it for me" not "what can I do for you".

    CL: People have to start somewhere! At least this isn't a pet shop or BYB buyer, but someone wanting to do the research and preperation before buying.

    I am sure that anyone willing to do the necessary research and training is able to get any dog they desire. some dogs just take more training than others, and if the person is willing to put in the effort etc to have a happy, content and obedient dog I think they should go for what appeals to them.

    I think you completely missed my point.

    I wasn't trying to flame you... It's great that you want to do research first, but the fact remains, right there you have said "it's what you want and what you will get" without even doing enough research to find out what the breed is called!
    It's not about spelling, I mean I looked into getting a Xoloitzcuintli... I had trouble spelling that when I started looking, but because I have read a lot of websites and talked to people about them, I learned what they are called and I also learned they are not for me.

    Yes every dog is different but you need to at least TRY and figure out what breed would suit your individual needs.
    EVERY breed has certain characteristics and traits... yes, some break the mold, but the MAJORITY of the dogs in that breed will be similar... it's the way they are bred.
    For example I don't know a single Husky who doesn't like to run. They are BRED to run so it is deeply ingrained into them.
    Now if you aren't a person who is big on running then it would be utterly ridiculous to go out and buy a Husky.
    Same with a Chihuahua, if the dog is going to be living outside and with small children you would be stupid to get one.

    I'm just saying buying a dog just because you like the look of them or you met one that your cousins, fathers, uncles, nephews best friend has, then it is just plain irresponsible.

    GOOGLE, get on DOGZONLINE, actually READ about the breed before committing to buy one.

    This was obvious even though it was meant to be subtle, that it was directed at my comment about my cousins dog. I was only stating that there are variations to every breed generalisation, and to furthermore reinstate the op's like for this breed if it had been tainted by the other poster's critical comments about it.

    Not directed at you at all dan4nas! Sorry!

    A&B - This is true, but I don't know any reputable breeders who will sell to someone who doesn't know the name of the breed they want.

    Again, I'm not trying to flame the OP, EVERYONE looking to buy a dog should be finding out as much as they can about the breed and having the common sense to NOT get it if it doesn't suit their needs.
