10 loveable dog breeds that originated in Canada


Seppälä Siberian Sled Dog

The Seppälä Siberian Sleddog was originally bred to pull sleds in Canada’s winter climes. It’s an average sized dog, but don’t let that fool you. These dogs are notoriously strong and full of energy, but also smart and trainable. Some have one brown and one blue eye, and are a distant cousin of the Siberian Husky. The Seppälä Siberian Sleddog was only recognized as its own breed in the past two decades, which is likely why you’ve never heard of one.
