Fur, color: short hair with bushy under hair. Color black with tones of gray. Normally wears a mask and it lower hair is usually white.

Not Appropriate for: sedentary people and those who are looking for a meek and obedient dog.

As a member of the family: you must be inflexible in its training. They prefer the out doors and require a lot of time and attention from their owners. It’ll be happy with any kind of sport, even more so, if it’s pulling a sleigh or even a bicycle. If you fail to give it the entertaining and attention it needs, it might begin to howl.
