Dogs for Sale
of Alaskan Malamutes
— The Kotzebue line stemmed
from Arthur Walden's dogs which were taken over by Milton and Eva Seeley
when Mr. Walden went to Antarctica. The Seeleys' Chinnok Kennels in
Wonalancet, New Hampshire was the best-known sled dog headquarters in the
United States. Dogs for both of the Byrd Expeditions and for the United
States Service Expedition (all to Antarctica) were trained and supplied by
Chinook Kennels. The Seeleys deserve much of the credit for getting the AKC
to recognize the Alaskan Malamute.
— Paul Voelker originated the
M'Loot line that figures strongly in many pedigrees, including the
foundation of Silver Sled Kennels that is behind most of the Alaskan
Malamutes you may find in the Midwest. Although Voelker was interested in
the same breed, he came up with a slightly different type of Alaskan
Malamute but did not pursue AKC registration.
(or Hinman-Irwin) Strain — This
strain involved only a few dogs but made important contributions to breed
quality. The Hinman line in combination with the M'Loot strain produced some
of the best representatives of the breed. The Hinman strain also figured
strongly in combination with M'Loot and Kotzebue in development of the
"Husky-Pak" line, and produced many champion and foundation dogs
for the breed.
