    What is the difference between a Malmute, a Siberian Huskey, and an " Eskimo Dog " ?

    are they basically all the same breed ?

    Malamutes have a curly tail & the huskie's are straight.malamutes are generally considered lazier & less active than the husky.There are also slight colour variations.

    One of my nephews has huskys.He's been trying to breed puppies without success.They're nice dogs.

    Malamute: ""
    American Eskimo Dog (member of Spitz family)
    ""
    Siberian Husky, also a member of the Spitz genetic family
    ""


    The malamute is the sled dog. 


    Spitz-type dogs (the correct German plural is Spitze, though spitzes is commonly used in English) are a type of dog characterized by long, thick, and often white fur, and pointed ears and muzzles. The tail often curls over the dog's back or droops.

    What's a "Spitz genetic family " ?

    I looked it up and edited my answer to give more information about Spitz dogs. There are so many of them....all over the world...mind-boggling!

    Husky's coat is thicker than most other dog breeds.
    Eskimo is an affectionate, loving dog. Hardy and playful, they are excellent with children.
    The physical build of the Malamute is compact and strong with substance, bone and snowshoe feet.
