Re: golden retriever or aslaskan malamute
Any dog can be aggressive..they all have teeth and they don't have the ability to reason. Socialization, genetics, handling, and environment all play into that sort of stuff.
From my experience, goldens are more of the totally stupid for their people, will do anything, easy breezy type of dogs. Mals, in typical northern breed fashion, are going to be a lot more of a challenge.
Mals are probably a more hardier breed, goldens are prone to things like cancer, tumors, and a lot don't age very well.
