SIBERIAN HUSKY


Siberian Huskies have famously been used to pull sleds over frozen landscapes. These strikingly beautiful working dogs have distinctive blue or brown eyes and are usually good-natured and playful. Their inherent energy means they require ample room to run around, otherwise they can become destructive.

These dogs were used by the Chukchi people of northeastern Asia to pull loads in freezing temperatures across difficult terrains. Despite weighing between fifty and sixty pounds, Siberian Huskies are powerful creatures.

This mischievous dog has a large head and is renowned for its human-like facial expressions. Due to the shape of their heads, Pugs have a tendency to wheeze and snort when undertaking physical activity. Its expressive personality makes it an ideal companion dog, and its even-tempered nature means it can make a good family pet too.

The Pug originated in China almost two thousand years ago, when Chinese emperors enjoyed the company of flat-faced, toy dogs (they also owned Pekingese and Shiz Tzus). In the 1500s, it made its way to Europe on Dutch trading ships, and famously saved the life of the Prince of Orange by barking to alert him to the danger of an incoming attack. Over the centuries, Pugs have made their way to all parts of the world.

GOLDEN RETRIEVER


The Golden Retriever has long been considered one of the most popular breeds in the United States. These working dogs can be trained for a variety of tasks and love to play outdoors.

President Ford and President Reagan both kept Golden Retrievers as pets whilst serving in the Oval Office – Liberty and Victory, respectively.
