The Chinook is a medium-sized breed which was initially bred as a sled dog. Their bloodline contains a mix of Husky and Mastiff, giving them the intelligence, drive, and sled-pulling skills of the Husky combined with the laid-back, gentle demeanour typically found in Mastiffs. Their almond-shaped eyes give the Chinook an air of wisdom, and their unique facial markings give them quite an expressive face. You might catch the Chinook giving you a side-eye or glare from across the room, but don’t let that fool you. These dogs are truly friendly and gentle-natured at heart.
