The Alaskan husky is not a breed of dog, rather it is a type or a category. It is lacking international recognition as a breed of dog as there is no preferred type and no restriction as to ancestry; it is defined only by its purpose, which is that of a highly efficient sled dog. The Alaskan Husky is the sled dog of choice for world-class dog sled racing competition. They are very strong and enduring dog. The Alaska-husky comes from Alaska and northern Canada. Alaskan Huskies are often mixed with setters and retrievers. Alaskan Huskies are well adapted to the cold climate in northern Norway their best working conditions is at around -20 degrees Celsius. and still at -35 to -40 degrees they are able to do their job well, But at these temperatures us humans have to say enough is enough and trow in the towel. The Norwegian Dog racer Robert Sørlie won the Iditarod race twice (worlds longest dog sled race) with the help of Alaskan Huskies.
