Founded in 1989, Snowlion Alaskan Malamutes™ is a show & sledding kennel in the northern Sierra dedicated to preserving the working heritage & classic beauty of this arctic breed. Our Malamutes are bred to the AKC standard for correct size & breed characteristics—including temperament, performance & appearance. We are well-known for producing beautiful companion dogs with outstanding temperaments.
While Snowlion Malamutes have competed successfully world-wide, winning numerous Best in Show awards & championships, our priority is ensuring that each of our Alaskan Malamutes enjoys a healthy, happy life as a cherished family companion. Producing beautiful, well-socialized & structurally sound Malamutes capable of fulfilling multiple roles as family pets, show prospects, sled dogs or service/therapy dogs—is our proudest achievement as breeders.
Snowlion Alaskan Malamutes are carefully bred with regard to health & temperament and are renowned for their beauty. Our goal is to produce happy, affectionate, long-lived companions as well as champion show & working dogs. Puppies are from AKC champions & working-titled Malamutes with the recommended health clearances & screening for this breed.
Snowlion puppies are born & raised in our home and receive veterinary exams prior to leaving with their new families. We breed only occasionally when we want to add a dog to our pack. By keeping our kennel small, each of our Alaskan Malamutes benefits from living as a household member. To that end, we work closely with friends for shared breedings & puppy care.
