The Alaskan Malamute and the Bloodhound

The Alaskan Malamute is the oldest known native breed in Alaska. The name originates from the Alaskan tribe known as Mahlemuts or Malemuit. The malamute is related to the wolf, therefore it is often cross breed with the wolf.
The Mahlemiut people mainly inhabited the upper part of the Anvik River in Alaska, but were spread over a wide region. The Malamute was used to haul food back to the villages. Due to its large, compact and powerful body and its unusually high endurance, it was used as a heavy freighting dog, able to pull a tremendous amount of weight over long distances at a steady pace.
It has often been said that the Malamute would work to the death for his master, thus explaining his self-confident and strong-willed personality.
Alaskan Malamutes are credited as one of the few breeds that are very close to its original form and function.
Malamutes can be a challenge to train, due to their stubbornness. It is said that to teach a Malamute to do something once or twice is very easy, because they are quite intelligent and quickly learn new tasks. To get them to repeatedly do something over and over again is much more challenging, due to their stubbornness and the fact that they become easily bored.
The Bloodhound is one of the oldest hound breeds. His ancestry can be traced to eight century Belgium. He was brought to Britain by William the Conqueror in 1066.
His name comes from the English blue bloods who helped nurture the breed. "Blood," in the breed name "bloodhound," probably comes from "blooded" - meaning a hound of pure breeding
It was not until the 16th century that the Bloodhound was used to track humans.
Bloodhounds can be stubborn, and training a Bloodhound requires tons of time and patience. You can't just tell a bloodhound what to do.
Some of the differences of the two dogs are they are native to different areas where the malamutes are subject to cold climates, the bloodhounds prefer warm climates. Although bloodhounds look different they have many of the same qualities. Both a bloodhound and a malamute are strong dogs and can pull heavy objects.
As you can see, both dogs are great pets, although they have differences.
