This considerable and outdoor canine breed was developed in Alaska where he was reared for sled pulling and sled racing. Alaskan Huskies are a blend of numerous canine breeds including the Siberian Husky, German Shepherd, Inuit Husky, Border Collie etc. They were reproduced to be working canines so their appearance has not been viewed as very significant.
