Dog of the Midnight Sun: The Canadian Inuit Dog.
The Inuit could not have survived in the harsh Canadian Arctic without the strength and skills of the Canadian Inuit dog. Evolved over a 4000-year period, the Inuit dog could pull a sled, carry heavy loads, sniff out seal breathing holes and guard camps against polar bears. Alas, in the 20th century, the arrival of other dog breeds and snowmobiles undermined the vitality of the Inuit dog. By 1975, there were fewer than 200 left. Canadian Geographic's Dog of the Midnight Sun tells the inspiring story of how this rare and remarkable dog was brought back from the brink of extinction, and how it continues to play a vital role in the life of the Canadian Arctic.
