The Greenland Dog is native to Greenland. As the name suggests, they were originally bred to work alongside humans as sled dogs. They look very similar to the Siberian Husky and the Alaskan Malamute and are somewhere in between these two breeds in terms of size and height. They have always been highly prized in their native Greenland, although they have not been "domesticated" as such, which in short means that they are not the kind of dog that is suitable for first-time owners. However, in the right hands and environment, a Greenland Dog will thrive in a family environment and with people who understand the specific needs of this particular type of Spitz.
