Here is a picture of what Kaiyuh the Alaskan Malamute did to her humans' garage door when she decided she wanted to get out of the garage and explore yesterday. (I don't know why, since the garage is nice and cool, but hey, Huskies are smarter than Malamutes!)
And here is sweet Kaiyuh. Look at that face, how could you be mad at her???
So if you think you want a Northern Breed dog, talk to some rescues and some people who have Northern Breed dogs, and make sure!
