Antarctica Dogs - Huskies - Pups

Back to gallery    Back to thumbnails    Next   Previous

Husky puppies were kept closer to the base until they were old enough and large enough to join the rest of the dogs on the spans and to be trained to sled pulling.

Antarctic dogs were bred in Antarctica with records kept as far as possible to ensure "outbreeding" so avoiding dogs that were related from breeding and so promoting inherited problems. Occasionally new dogs were brought in from Canada or Greenland to add diversity to the gene pool or dogs would be swapped between bases for the same reason.
