We are preparing to welcome a new Malamute puppy into our home. However, I am on the fence as to whether I should get a male or a female. I know this can vary by breed that is why I wanted to ask all of you who actually have had Malamutes. We have 8 kids ranging from 6 to 15 so this dog will get a lot of loving! We are looking forward to this new member of our family and would really appreciate any input. Oh and this will be definitely be an indoor/ outdoor doggie. Thanks in advance!
