Welcome to Call Of The Wild Canines. We are located in South Central Michigan and we are breeders of Alaskan Malamute and Siberian Husky puppies. Our dogs are raised in a loving atmosphere so they make good pets and easily adjust to family life. Although similar and often mistaken for each other the Siberian Husky and the Alaskan Malamute are very different dogs in many ways. All dogs here at Call Of The Wild Canines are from registered breeding stock.

Siberian Huskies are an energetic, and resilient breed whose ancestors came from the extremely cold and harsh environment of the Siberian Arctic. Siberian Huskies were bred by the Chukchii of Northeastern Asia to pull heavy loads long distances through difficult conditions. The dogs were imported into Alaska during the Nome Gold Rush and later spread into the United States's and Canada. They were initially sent to Alaska and Canada as sled dogs but rapidly acquired the status of family pets and show dogs. Because of its efficiency as a working breed, most huskies are bred to be able to withstand long work days on little amounts of food.

The Alaskan husky is not a breed of dog rather it is a type or a category. It falls short of being a breed in that there is no preferred type of and no restriction as to ancestry; it is defined only by its purpose, which is that of a highly efficient sled dog. An Alaskan Husky is a cross between a husky and (another breed of dog). A common misbelief is that an Alaskan Husky is only a cross between a Siberian Husky, and an Alaskan Malamute.

The Alaskan Husky is the sled dog of choice for world-class dog sled racing sprint competition. None of the purebred northern breeds can match it for sheer racing speed. Demanding speed-racing events such as the Fairbanks, Alaska Open North American Championship and the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous are invariably won by teams of Alaskan huskies, or of Alaskan's crossed with hounds or gun dogs. Hounds are valued for their toughness and endurance. Winning speeds often average more than 19 miles per hour (31 km/h) over three days' racing at 20 to 30 miles (32 to 48 km) each day.

Alaskan huskies that fulfill the demanding performance standards of world-class dogsled racing are extremely valuable. A top-level racing lead dog can be worth $10,000-$15,000. Alaskan Huskies (also referred to as Alaskan's) that fail to meet the performance standards of the musher who bred them often go on to be sold to less competitive mushers, allowing them to continue to run.

The Alaskan Malamute is a member of the "Spitz" group of dogs, traced back 3,000 years ago to the Mahlemuits tribe (of Inuit) in upper Western Alaska. The most common known dogs in this group also includes Siberian Huskies, Samoyeds, American Eskimo Dogs, Chow Chow's, and Pomeranians, Just to name a few. These breeds all have a similar appearance of double coats, prick ears, a tail that curls over the back and a sharp foxy look. They are also wolf like in appearance and behavior. They thrive best in winter climates, and excel in winter sports. Sometimes they are also refereed to as the Northern Breeds.

The Malamute dog has had a distinguished history; aiding Rear Admiral Richard Byrd to the South Pole, and the miners who came to Alaska during the Gold Rush of 1896, as well as serving in World War II primarily as search and rescue dogs in Greenland, although in Europe they were used as freighting and packing dogs. This Alaskan Malamute was never destined to be a racing sled dog; instead, it was used for heavy freighting, pulling hundreds (maybe thousands) of pounds of supplies to villages in groups of at least 4 dogs for heavy loads. DNA analysis shows that Malamutes are one of the oldest breeds of dogs genetically distinct from other dog breeds.
