    Best thread ever. I seriously wish my job was to do nothing but play with cute puppies all day.

    None of these puppies are mine, but my family has a 14.5 week old male, light fawn with a black mask, of the same breed.

    Now, if you'd said Malamutes aren't any closer to the wolf than a Shih Tzu or a Pekingese, you'd have been correct (they're also of the 14 ancient breeds).

    I'm with Poriferan on my preference, though. The more a dog is bred to be like a wolf, the more I like them (though I'm also partial to enormous fluffy dogs, like Newfies). Those Mal puppies are illegally cute, with their howling attempts.

    Hmm. I don't think it really contradicts the idea that the wolfy appearance of a Malamute or Husky doesn't make it like a wolf, though. Behaviorally they are worlds apart. Noah had a wolf hybrid when he was younger, and it's a whole other experience. I'm lucky his wolf liked me, or he might not have wanted to date me.

    I prefer wolfy-looking dogs, too. Did you meet Eli when you were here? I think I kept him in the backyard so he wouldn't bother people. He's a mess.

    Heh. Fair enough.

    I had a Malamute/Husky/wolf mix when I was younger. His father was 160 lbs at one year, and mine was on his way to that. Unfortunately, he got some kind of virus, and died at 4 months. Just about did me in. He had a very sweet temperament. I'd heard that the test to see if they're "safe" or not is to take food away from them when they're eating, to see how they react. So I gave Crash (yeah, that was his name) some raw hamburger, which he always went insane for. I let him gulp some down, then reached into his dish and grabbed the rest away. He just looked at me with this incredibly hurt look, like he couldn't believe I would do that to him. I think he was safe. Or maybe he was just that smart. That look went a lot deeper than any bite he could inflict.

    No! You didn't tell me you were holding out on me!

    Thank you, Trinity! I didn't have him as a puppy or I'd have posted pics. We got him when he was about 2 (we're still not 100% sure how old he is). Someone had left him in the night deposit box at the shelter. He was pretty unruly at first so I can kind of see why, but still.

    And look at this little fat fluffball:
