Siberian Indian Dog Breed History

The Siberian Indian Dog is a delightful mix of its two parents and boasts a noble lineage. The Siberian Husky is a sled dog extraordinaire. The breed was created by the semi nomadic Chukchi people of Northeastern Asia over 3,000 years ago. The dog’s primary function within the tribe was to pull sleds enabling the nomads to move about easily. During the 19th century, the dogs were widely used as sled dogs by fur traders. In January of 1925, the dogs made an impressive public debut in the United States when a team was used to pull sleds carrying diphtheria medication a great distance in Nome Alaska. The Native American Indian Dog’s history can be traced back to the year 1500 when the dogs were common pets of numerous Native American tribes. They were used to pull travois, hunt, and protect the tribe. This attractive dog was never actually a purebred but a cross of many dogs because the Native Americans commonly crossed dogs between tribes and there was never any focused breeding plan. Nowadays, there is a great deal of controversy over the Native American Indian Dog because many people say it’s actually a newly created breed that was first bred by Karen Markel of Majestic View Kennels and that the dog’s ties to the tribes of the United States are murky. Karen Markel created the Native American Indian Dogs by crossing the Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute, Chinook and German Shepherd. Nonetheless, the Siberian Indian Dog is a cross between the Siberian Husky and the modern American Indian Dog. 

Siberian Indian Dog Breed Appearance

The appearance of the Siberian Indian Dog is very striking. The noble dog has a very strong and muscular build. Its head is triangle-shaped with exceptionally alert eyes. The eyes can be blue, black, brown or even a combination of colors. He has a long muzzle and upright ears. The coat of the Siberian Indian dog is varied. The dog's coat colors can range from white to yellow, orange, red, spotted, and black. The fur is long, fluffy, and soft. It does have a thick undercoat. This dog requires no trimming to look good but does benefit from brushing. During the year, he does not shed very much but once a year the thick undercoat is blown. The feet of this dog are very tight and almost catlike. The pads are typically black, as is the nose and the rim of the mouth and lips.

Siberian Indian Dog Breed Maintenance

Although the Siberian Indian dog has a thick coat, he does not shed very much. Only once a year, his thick undercoat blows in thick clumps. He benefits from occasional brushing to keep his fur looking shiny and robust. Brushing is also an excellent bonding time. His nails do require occasional trimming but the more active the dog is the less his nails will need to be trimmed. Running, walking, and playing naturally help wear down his toenails. Many owners opt to brush the dog’s teeth several times a week to help control plaque buildup and prevent periodontal disease later in life. Once a week, owners should gently wipe out the dog’s upright ears to remove any built-up debris.
