This paper explains that the Siberian husky, a working dog, is bred by the Inuit Eskimo people for pulling sleds across the very harsh environment of the vast snow-driven plains. The author explains that the Siberian husky is more closely related to the wolf than are other domestic dog breed. Therefore, they are difficult to train. The paper stresses that, in the absence of any possibility of studies on wolves, the Siberian Husky is the closest candidate for helping solve the mystery of the extreme stamina and physical endurance of wolves.
