This is a Siberian Huskey.

The original sled dogs were chosen for their size, brute strength and stamina, but modern sled dogs are generally mixed-breed Alaskan huskies who have been bred for generations for their endurance, strength, speed, tough feet, good attitude and appetites, and most importantly their desire to pull in harness and their abilities to run well within a team.


(Teek, and Sol-leks)

This is a Newfoundland

The Newfoundland is a big, blocky, and powerful breed built for stamina and strength, not speed. This breed was developed as one that could do a lot of hard work under extreme conditions. This dog has a double coat that keeps it warm in the water and it's toes are webbed.


(Curly)

This is a Samoyed

Dog sledding is a team sport where the team is composed of the driver or musher and his or her dogs. The number of dogs on a race team varies widely from as few as 2 to an unlimited number in an event called unlimited class sprint racing. The most popular races are still the limited class sprint races in which the team size approximately equals the number of miles run.

This is an Alaskan Malamute

The largest and oldest of the Arctic sled dogs, the Alaskan Malamute possesses great strength and endurance. He is not designed to race, but rather to carry large loads over long distances. Today, many Malamutes are family pets, but are highly athletic and still capable of enjoying sledding, weight-pulling, back-packing, jogging and swimming with their owners. The Malamute coat is thick and coarse, with a plumed tail carried over the back. The coat usually ranges in color from light gray to black or from sable to red. Face markings, including a cap on the head and a bar/mask on the face are often distinguishing features.

This is a Huskey

Modern Sled Dogs must have good feet. Good canine feet for long-distance sled dogs are typically closely spaced and tough. While good feet can be bred for, all sled dogs competing in long-distance races must also be provided with excellent foot care by their mushers. Booties are often worn as a protective covering, this helps the dogs naturally tough feet to cover long distances without difficulties. Extreme cold and new snow can lead to trail conditions that are abrasive to the dogs’ feet and also add more friction to the trail, preventing the sleds from gliding easily. Booties for the dogs are a necessity under these kinds of trail conditions.


(Dolly, Pike, and Dub)

These 2 are Huskies resembling Billie and Joe

This is a Bloodhound

Bloodhounds are good sled dogs only because if there was an avalanch, they could find a lot of buried dogs/humans.


(Nig)

This is a Saint Bernard and Scotch Sheperd mix

These dogs are amazing sled dogs, because of there strength, tough feet, endurence, thick layer of fur, and they know when the step onn different textures, like if they step on thin ice, they know to stop.
