The Sledge Dog

Puppy ready for discovering the world...
The mother is still tied...When the puppies are a little older the mother is untied, to protect the puppies from other loose hungry dogs...

The Greenlandic sledge dog is very sturdy...And in the sledge dogs district you are not alowed to have other dog races to keep the race clean...In north east Greenland, in the old days, the sealers tied the she dog outside, to get the dog mated with a wolf...


The sealers often make a little shelter to the puppies.....

Hej Carl och hela familjen.
Intressant det där med slädhundarna7dogs och vargarna/wolfs. Tack för bilderna.
Men kan hundarna/the dogs attackera människor?! Bita människor?!
Ha det gott och hälsa alla.
Allra vänligaste hälsningar
