Tamaskan Dog


The Tamaskan dogs are a crossbreed, specifically designed by dog fanciers, beginning in Finland, to morphologically resemble a wolfdog. It is a cross of several standardized breeds of the sled dog type, and its bloodlines may sometimes include a small amount of wolfdog stock. As of November 2013, Tamaskans have not been recognized as a breed in its own right by any major breed registries or kennel clubs, only being recognized by two minor registries, the American Rare Breed Association, and the related Kennel Club of the United States of America, and by Tamaskan-specific breeder clubs. It is a highly versatile dog that can excel in agility, obedience and working trials. Although there are a little over 600 Tamaskans worldwide registered in these organizations, increasing interest has resulted in their spread throughout continental Europe, the UK, United States, Canada, and Australia.
