Dog vs Dog vs Dog
Siberian Husky






Norwegian Elkhound






Alaskan Malamute






Anyone own any of these? Experiences? Contemplating a dog, and these three are towards the top of my list. Had never heard of the Norwegian Elkhound till I played with one at a PetLand the other day. Guess they used to be used for hunting Moose and Bears(which made them that much coolor in my eyes).
So far, I'm leaning towards the Malamute if I were to get one, but figured I'd hear out current/past owners opinions on each breed.

re: Dog vs Dog vs Dog
We had a mutt that was part Husky; she was super sweet and very loyal and calm. She was the best dog to walk because she always stayed by my side (actually, she did this when we were in the yard with her too).

Luckily she had brown eyes, because those blue eyes look evil.

ETA: But I like the looks of the Norwegian Elkhound.

I'm on my phone so I can't see your location, but if you live in Louisiana I wouldn't reccommend any of these breeds.

Fwiw they are ALL bred for cold weather. I hope you're not seriously thinking about tortuing them in Louisiana's jungle climate

In that case, you have my permission to choose from those three.

But, while I'm on my high horse, please look for one on petfinder.com instead of perpetuating the heinous practice of breeding.

I've had two malamutes, male and female. Very smart dogs. They are definitely one owner dogs.

The female was the sweetest dog I've ever had. She was badass though, if another dog came around she'd tear it up.

The male was great when he was younger but when we got the female he turned ultra-aggressive. One time he took part of a kids ear off when his BB gun accidentally tapped me on the shoulder. Freaked us out.

I'd do some more research on the Malamutes to make sure they're the dog for you before getting one. I think most of the breeds you've chosen are going to have more of an aggressive side, but I'm not familiar with all of them. Good luck.

Neighbor has one like the top one. Not sure if it's the same breed, but it doesn't make a sound and it's outside a lot, which works for me.

I just bought a malamute. He's 10 weeks old and besides all the pissing in the house he's a pretty good puppy.
