| An Alaskan Malamute belonging to George Lucas was responsible for making the noises that inspired Chewbacca's vocal sounds in Star Wars. Alaskan Malamutes are still used as sled dogs for personal transportation and competitive mushing. Alaskan Malamutes are often mistaken for Siberian Huskies. Alaskan Malamutes are so friendly that they do not make good guard dogs. The howl of an Alaskan Malamute is virtually indistinguishable from that of a wolf.
