Alaskan Malamute attacks are very rare. As both the oldest and the largest of the Arctic sled dogs, Alaskan Malamutes have a formidable presence. Although sometimes confused for Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes are larger dogs with their own distinctive markings and qualities. It is not uncommon for an Alaskan Malamute to weigh upwards of 100 pounds for example, although the desired size is generally described as 75 pounds for females and 85 pounds for males.
Alaskan Malamutes can make wonderful family pets as they are both dignified and loyal to their owners. However, when not properly trained, loyalty can turn to possessiveness and aggression that becomes dangerous. Their size can make them difficult to deal with in these situations.
If you or a loved one has been attacked or bitten by an Alaskan Malamute, you may have suffered serious harm as a result. At Simmons and Fletcher, our Houston dog bite lawyers understand the consequences that a dog bite can have and the financial burden it may cause. Call us for a free consultation.
Damages from Animal Bites
Animal bites can result in a ripping or tearing of the skin or it may result in puncture wounds. Either way, it is important to treat the wounds carefully and keep them clean to avoid infection. Typically, the hospital will not completely close the wounds in order to let any germs come out.
Whatever the consequences of the attack and whatever the injuries you sustained, you may not be responsible for bearing the cost. Call Simmons and Fletcher, P.C., to evaluate your dog bite claim.
