Alaskan Malamute

The Alaskan Malamute (not to be confused with the Siberian Husky) is bigger and built for endurance.

Basenji drawing by Dog Breeds List


Do you like cats?

If not, then beware the Basenji. He may look like a dog, but truth be told–he’s actually part kitty. And he flaunts his feline side shamelessly.

Boxers are all about food and their unique personality won’t leave you indifferent. You’ll either love or…
