As early as 1800, the Inuit dogs existed. The Inuit people needed a dog to suit their life style as a working companion. For this they staked out several bitches to be mated by wolves. By selective breeding and culling of offspring, they eventually got what they wanted, a dog that could work for long hours in the cold temperatures, would live as a family member and be obedient and loyal. In the early 70’s a few Inuit type dogs were imported to Britain and by following their example and using northern breeds of dog, The Northern Inuit dogs have today retained all the original characteristics and traits of the original Inuit dogs, ie, a willingness to work and please. Although originally having to battle against the elements for basic survival, they have fitted in well with our modern day lifestyle as a loyal pet capable of competing successfully in obedience, agility and also flyball, as well as their original job of pulling sledges. Where the Northern Inuit has not proved a success, however, is as a guard dog due to their friendly manner and willingness to greet any visitor as a long lost friend. With their incredible sense of smell, and a willingness to please the future of the Inuits looks bright and could provide future services such as search and rescue dogs, Guide dogs for the blind, Hearing dogs for the deaf, PAT dogs, Assistance dogs for the disabled or as the pride and joy of families as their loyal pet. the dense double coat has a slightly harch texture, is 3-5CM, longer on the ruff and breaches. The tail is bushy.
Colour - Pure white or any colour sable from grey, apricot through to pure black. White faces are permitted on any colour but where white appears on the legs and feet it must be gradual.
