Three Dogs

Welcome to Wakon!

WAKON GIANT ALASKAN MALAMUTES are pure-bred descendants of the pure M'Loot type of Malamute that lived with the ancient Inuit peoples in the high Arctic, hundreds of years ago. These giant 'sled-dogs', were as tall as 35" (at the withers) and weighed over 190 lbs. They were the biggest and strongest sled-pullers and pack animals with the sweetest, most loving dispositions. They loved their Inuit owners and protected them from Polar Bears and endured extreme cold, and blizzards, pulling heavy loads hundreds of miles. They sometimes stayed in the igloos and cared for the little children. They made the difference between life and death for their families, in this harsh most severe of all habitats!

Marlene Ross of Wakon Giant Alaskan Malamutes has devoted 60 years of her life to the preservation of these magnificent, loving, Gentle Giants of the North! She is responsible for saving them from extinction and has never compromised her values to the whims of human ignorance that more often destroys or changes or reduces in size and quality the breed of dog they choose to 'breed'. Through the incorrect genetic manipulation by people who don't know much about genetics, many breeds of dogs today are of inferior size and quality, as well as very badly tempered and are a very sad replica of their original stature and heritage! Today many people are not dedicated to a pure bred Alaskan Malamute, and are mixing other breeds of dogs with these magnificent Giants to render them extinct!

Because WAKON GIANT ALASKAN MALUMATES are never "in-bred", they are the original, unique, type of Giant Alaskan Malamute demonstrating the most intelligent, devoted, sweetest, loving dispositions typical of their ancestor's Arctic Heritage.

My complete dog facility and all of my dogs are inspected every year by the Animal Control Division of Snohomish County. Due to the cleanliness and spaciousness of my facility, the happiness and overall wellbeing of all my dogs and my complete compliance with all state and county laws qualifies me for a Commercial Kennel License! I have been issued this legal document every year for almost 60 years, and I am very proud of this achievement!

WAKON GIANT ALASKAN MALAMUTES love children and are the best of family dogs! They have a "fun" personality and want to please you and be with you all the time. You are their 'pack-leader'; they need your instructions and discipline. They bring so much joy into your life with their love and devotion, you will always be amazed at how they changed your life, and you will always want to have a WAKON GIANT ALASKAN MALAMUTE to look upon and love each day! For hundreds of years, these Malamutes have been spoken of in reverence by the ancient indigenous peoples. They really speak to your soul and are TRULY the 'Sacred Ones'!!


Dear Alaskan Malamute enthusiants, thank you for your interest in a Giant Alaskan Malamute. I have become aware of another breeder using the Wakon name without my permission or authorization of any kind. I want you to know that Marlene Ross has no affiliation or association of any kind with such person or their stock! If you are interested in the purest, true M'Loot Giant Alaskan Malamute please call today.

Remember, it isn't a WAKON Giant Alaskan Malamute, if it doesn't come from Marlene Ross and Wakon!
