Canadian Inuit Dog. Historically, the breed was called Esquimau, which was then anglicized to Eskimo. Out of respect for the wishes of the Inuit people the term "Eskimo" has been dropped in favor of calling the breed the Inuit Sled Dog or Canadian Inuit Dog, the official designation by the government of Nunavut (Canada). The Canadian Inuit Dog is the mammal emblem of the Territory of Nunavut. This breed pulls sleds and before buying one be ready for high energy dogs for pets. Much like the Huskys and Malmutes.
