Yumna Saloojee did plenty of research and scoured the internet for information on dogs so she could find the right breed. Then, she bought everything her new dog would need like a collar, a leash, shampoo, an engraved tag, and a dog bed. She thought she was ready to handle this responsibility. But, when the dog started to outgrow everything she bought him, she panicked. Then something shocking occurred.

Saloojee had a stable job and made enough money to live comfortably, but there was one thing she craved. Now, some people want new shoes, jewelry, a piece of technology, or a handbag. But material possessions were irrelevant to this South African woman. As a little girl, Saloojee dreamt of the ideal companion. Her parents hoped that she would forget about this dream as she got older. After all, a dog required a lot of commitment. As it turns out, she did quite the opposite.

Saloojee wasn’t picky. So, as long as the dog had four legs and was fluffy, she’d be okay. She was the kind of gal who would pet animals on the street. But when it came time for her to adopt, she had to choose a specific breed. Most people consider a dog’s size. For example, a Chihuahua doesn’t take up a lot of space and it doesn’t eat a lot of food. But Irish Wolfhounds consume a lot of food and need plenty of exercise. How was she going to choose?

Saloojee spent weeks searching for the right breed online. She went through tons of Instagram photos of collies, terriers, Dalmatians, Shih Tzus, boxers, pugs, huskies, and beagles. Her dream dog was out there and she was determined to find him. But the more research she did, the more difficult it was to choose. Then, her eyes locked in on one candidate.

Saloojee got excited when she saw a photo of an Alaskan Malamute. It was a tiny puppy, but it was by far the most adorable thing she’d seen on her screen. So, she googled the pooch’s breed, and shared the information with her family and friends. She was particularly intrigued by the long coat and wolf-like facial features. Where did this beast come from?
