They may look like wolves but the Northern Inuit is a friendly dog who keeps any aggression in check. Quick-minded and intelligent, they require capable and experienced dog owners as they are a breed that needs strong leadership.
The Northern Inuit does have pack tendencies and is often better with another dog for company even if they are kept in an engaging and interesting environment.
Two theories exist about the origins of the Northern Inuit, one is that the breed was created by a guy called Eddie Harrison in the 1980s who crossed Huskies, Malamutes and German Shepherds amongst others to create this wolf-like creature. The other theory goes back ten years earlier and credits the breed’s evolution to a simple cross between Labrador Huskies and Canadian Eskimo Dogs that came to the UK from America with Alaskan Malamutes and German Shepherds.
What is not in doubt is that the breed was specifically developed to look like a wolf and be as close as possible to this pack animal. The breed is not Kennel Club registered and there are two or three organisations in the UK currently protecting and promoting their interests. The Northern Inuit is still quite scarce so you may have to wait some time for a puppy from a good breeder.
The Northern Inuit needs a home with strong leadership and plenty of mental stimulation; they are not a good choice for a first-time dog owner. They train well as they are intelligent but need plenty of input at this crucial time in their development.
Despite the working breeds in their pedigree, the Northern Inuit doesn’t require huge amounts of exercise, it is the mental stimulation, company and routine which are the key to this breed plus rigorous early training
