Greenland Dog

The Greenland Dog (Greenlandic: Kalaallit Qimmiat, Danish: Grønlandshunden, also known as Greenland Husky) is a large breed of husky-type dog kept as a sled dog and for hunting polar bear and seal. It is an ancient breed, thought to be directly descended from dogs brought to Greenland by the first Inuit settlers.

The Greenland Dog is a powerful, heavy-built dog. It has a broad, wedge-shaped head, slightly tilted eyes and small, triangular ears covered with thick fur that prevents frostbite. It has strong, muscular, short-haired legs. The tail is usually rolled along/across its back. Photo: wikipedia
