I had a Alaskan malamute in my teenage years.
he was an awesome dog great family dog great protector. He always went room to room throughout the night making sure everyone was ok.
he did escape the yard several times and sometimes for days at a time. From me over hearing my dad he killed a few chickens and caused a mess on a farm once which my dad had to pay for.
but he was very loyal abd protective you could not walk-in my house without approval from my old man or the wolf would eat you. And there was no rough housing with us kids or the wolf would eat my dad. Great dog
