    "Since the story of Eight Below revolves around the bravery of a group of sled dogs, the filmmakers decided to use both Hollywood hounds—Siberian huskies and Alaskan malamutes—and a native breed known as the Greenland dog. The Greenland dog originated in the coastal Arctic regions of northern Siberia, Alaska, and Greenland and is believed to be one of the most ancient breeds. All three of the breeds used are classified as “working dog” breeds, which are genetically adapted to frigid temperatures; hence they were ideal for work in this film."

    Siberian Husky.

    If you are interested in having one as a pet the most important thing to remember is that it is a working dog. It will be unhappy if it does not have a job to perform. Let it pull a small wagon on walks (frequent walks) and get it some space to run a couple of times a week. They also don't do well in overly warm climates like the US south.

    I think they're huskies; they're too slender to be malamutes.
