New Hampshire: Chinook

When a New Hampshire musher named Arthur Treadwell Walden bred a mastiff-type farm dog with a Greenland Husky sled dog, he began the lineage for a gentle, friendly working dog. He named one of the pups in that first litter "Chinook," which is Inuit for "warm winter winds." Thanks to their intelligence, Chinooks have the potential to perform well in agility, herding, obedience and rally.
