As said above, one of the more common working dogs are the Huskies who are extensively found in the region of North America and Alaska. These are dogs who are specifically endowed with rich fur which protects them from the cold weather of the Far North and Klondike. On the other hand, they also possess good stamina and enough vigor to pull fully-loaded sled through the snow.
