The Incredible Life Of A Sled Dog

  • Published 8 months ago

This is the story of an icon, the Canadian Inuit Dog; from ancient roots in the Arctic as the working sled dog of the Inuit to its confrontation with modern technological society and sadly, its potential demise as a species.
In the 1920s, between 10,000 and 20,000 Canadian Inuit dogs were estimated to live in Northern Canada. By 1963, there was only one “Canadian Eskimo dog” registered with the Canadian Kennel Club, and the breed was declared extinct.
As hunting companion, pack and draught animal, the Inuit dog enhanced the ability of the Inuit and their ancestors to move from place to place, toting their few belongings, in the constant search for game.
