Mackenzie River Husky
A Mackenzie River Husky describes several local populations of arctic and sub arctic sled dogs, none of which constitutes a breed. The most prominent of these are the sled dogs of Donna Dowling and others in the interior of Alaska.
The Mackenzie River Husky dogs are described as standing 27 to 32 inches in height and weighing 70 to 125 pounds. These dogs are long-coated, they are rangy, deep-chested and long-legged, built for heavy freighting in single file through deep snow. The Mackenzie River Husky dog has a coat with colors that are the usual northern-dog range of black and white, shades of grey and sable, tan, or blonde.
