  • "Native to eastern Siberia. In the nineteenth century, it was introduced to Alaska and Greenland where it found an ideal environment.... Typical Arctic draft dog. A team of twenty Eskimo dogs can pull a sled carrying a two-ton load for 25 miles (40 km) without stopping. The Eskimo dog does not bark, but howls like a wolf. It is not adapted to family life." (Simon & Schuster's Guide to Dogs, 1980)
