THE MYTH ABOUT SIZE AND WEIGHTS:  Any Alaskan Malamute female 90 lbs. or more and any Alaskan Malamute male 100lbs. or more is considered a Giant (trim weight).  The only TRUE Giant Alaskan Malamute, however, is one that the breeder can give VET SCALE weight proof right from their vet.  There likely are very few Alaskan Malamutes in the world truly over 150lbs. Many breeders say that their Malamutes are heavier than they really are to help sell their puppies.  If a breeder says that their Malamutes are 150-200 lb, ask them for a vet-signed statement of proof.  There has to be VET SCALE proof ,and the dog has to be trim and not overweight to be accurate.  Even some Alaskan Malamute breeders that say they have vet scale weights on their website add many pounds to the weights they list making the dogs look like they are heavier and larger than they truly are.  The proof will be in the true vet scale weights of the offspring.  The fact is that ALL of the Giant Alaskan Malamute breeders in the U.S. (whether they are in AK, OH, KY, MI, TN, TX, or in any other state) have Alaskan Malamutes from the same lines as each other.  And, NO Alaskan Malamute breeder in the U.S. has an entirely M'loot line.  An entirely M'loot line does NOT exist, and there is no test of any kind  available to even show which lines contain M'loot in them.  *****All of our dogs' weights here at Northern Glories are true vet scale weights with NO added weight listed.*****
