This beautiful and wild looking dog was virtually on the edge of extinction when Bill Carpenter and his Yellowknife based Eskimo Dog Research Foundation brought the breed back from the brink. The Canadian Eskimo dog are direct descendants of the polar wolf, tamed and trained to be used for packing, hunting and as sled dogs by the locals. This breed is Canada’s oldest, with genetic roots stretching as far back as 2000 years ago.
