The history of these dogs is rooted in a very long history. 5000 years ago, the first settlers of North America kept these puppies for work and as companions. They are closely related to other famous breeds such as Siberian Huskies, Samoyeds, and even Labradors. They require a lot of work to keep one of your own. Being a sled dog, they need regular exercise. They do not bark very often, but they can be very loud and noisy. Of course, they have historically been used for Arctic expeditions, so they can withstand very cold temperatures.

They helped early North American settlers hunt, chase, tow gear, tow sleds, and find potential bears.


They were used to bring supplies to the French army and detect mines from isolated mountain outposts during World War I and World War II.
