If I go by the AKC shes not correct

Yep. he's a looker.
Oh OK. I see what you mean. Well I can't literally "see" it but I understand.
AKC, CKC, UKC,....the kennel clubs are not interested in the abilities and/or mindset of true "working dog". They are people who standardize to the detriment of far too many breeds of dog. The "fancier" mindset of these people who set these standards are just that...."fanciful". The original Siberian Husky is a far cry from what these kennel clubs set. The original Sibe was(is?) a landrace who's instincts were primarily to pull a sled and of course to be a survivor.
As for Nala's instincts, I know from my own experience that even K9's bred specifically for 'mushing' occasionally throw a pup that does not really "love" pulling. Cull by spay/neuter/?? and place as a pet in a culturally/breed specific appropriate, responsible home setting. That said, you can teach an old dog new tricks. She may not totally love it but she will do it to please you.
imo = In My Opinion? If so, I like that you put that.
