Do Huskies Malt Their Fur?

If by malt you mean shed than yes, huskies do shed, a lot. The breed  
originated in arctic conditions. Consequently they had to have a very thick, warm,
and functional coat. Their coat consists of a layer of down fur and a
layer of guard hairs, both of which insulate the dog very well and play a
major role in keeping the dog warm enough. The fact that they came from
a very cold climate means that their coat is very thick. Consequently,
they have to shed at some point and when they do it can be quite hard
to manage.
