THE TIMBER WOLF DOG.
The most common breed of sleigh dog, better known as the plain Husky dog, of which there are two distinct varieties. It is quite evident that they are of the same stock, if not descendants of tamed specimens of the large timber or Arctic wolf, and of prairie wolf or Toganee. The other dog is the Hoosque of the Mackenzie river district, and is the dog used by the American Esquimaux, and of these there is a yellow and a black variety.
THE TOGANEE DOG.
Of course these breeds are found more or less mixed all over the continent, especially varieties of the wolf breed, as these are by far the most numerous.
THE BLACK HOOSQUE DOG.
A peculiarity in these dogs is that they all have bright, clear, yellow eyes, similar to a cat, with great powers of dilating the pupils.. . . . . . . . . . .
