A History of This Dog Breed The Northern Inuit, which resembles a cross between a German shepherd and malamute, is a relatively new dog breed founded in the 1980s by U.K. breeder Edwina “Eddie” Harrison. Although they are often thought to be a wolf hybrid, and caused quite an uproar in Britain when they were initially advertised as such, this is not so. Experts claim that these dogs are actually a mix of several rescue dogs of unknown origins, along with the Alaskan malamute, German shepherd and Siberian husky. The result was a dog breed that is not only exquisitely beautiful; these pooches have great temperaments and make wonderful pets, provided that they are adopted by the right people.
