The Northern Inuit puppy is a fast-growing dog that fits into the large-dog category. When full grown, the male stands 23 to 32 inches tall and weighs 79 to 110 pounds. The female is slightly smaller, standing at 23 to 28 inches and weighing 55 to 84 pounds.

The dog has a double coat and a straight tail. The coat can be pure white or black and may or may not have a white face mask.

The breed was developed in England but is not a breed recognized by the AKC. The Northern Inuit is a crossbreed that originated from breeding the German shepherd, the Siberian Husky and, possibly, the Alaskan Malamute. This breed has a strong resemblance to the wolf.

Due to their familial nature, they are pack dogs. When left alone, they can become destructive and suffer from separation anxiety. If the dog is left alone for any length of time, it is best to either have another dog for companionship or have a secure and safe play area.
