Yakutian likes are a newly developed dog breed with an ancient history. This working breed originated in the Yakutia region of Russian Siberia and in ancient times, dogs were employed as universal animals by native Yakut people. They were used for hunting, reindeer grazing, and draft animals as well as family pets. Their skins were often used in religious ceremonies. His most important role was in transportation. The Yakuts became the first known people to use dogs to pull sleds.
In the mid-1800s, the breed was flourishing. But in the 1900s, progress began to reduce the need for dogs and reduced their numbers. In 1998, a group of enthusiasts worked to reclaim the breed, and in 2004, the Yakutian likes were recognized by the Russian Kynological Federation. Since the inception of the Internet, these amazing dogs are gradually finding their way into other countries.
