Canadian Eskimo Dog Names in Pop Culture
The movie 'The Last Dogs of Winter' is a brutal portrayal of the dogs and their situation. These dogs are targets for the Polar Bear, and a video clip went viral when one of Brians dogs was seen being 'patted' by a bear. It lived to tell the tale and people went wild over how a huge animal like the Polar Bear was so compassionate to the dog. What the audience didn't know is that on the same day, later in the evening, the bear killed and ate another dog that was also chained and could not escape. The debate about Brian's Canadian Eskimo dogs still rages and increased when it was proven that Brian was feeding the bears to keep his dogs safe. This practice is forbidden by wildlife officials. Dogs like Alaska charm us with their loyalty and devoted behavior and the debate caused through Brian's actions are clearly divided with one side on the wildlife side and the other a devoted group of keen dog lovers.
What's not to love about the Canadian Eskimo Dog - one of the rarest breeds of dog in the world. With their dense fur, wolf-like good looks, and adorable eyes, who wouldn't want to save this beautiful breed? Brian Ladoon died this year (2018) in Churchill at the age of 65. After dedicating his life to the preservation of the Canadian Eskimo Dog, fears for the survival of his dogs have become a concern for all dog lovers around the world. These dogs are born to the harsh climate and have a willing heart to work. Sadly now they are not needed so much for expedition parties or for the native people, with machinery now replacing this beautiful dog. What will become of the young dogs like Alaska? Will they survive and thrive? We can only hope with all our hearts that this will be the case.
