The Tamaskan Dog is a large working dog and, as such, has an athletic look to it. Similar in size to its cousin, the German Shepherd, the Tamaskan has a wolf-like appearance with a thick coat and straight, bushy tail. It comes in three primary colors red-gray, wolf-gray, and black-gray. Eyes are yellow through amber and brown, although light eyes are rare.
The Tamaskan breed is healthy with few severe genetically inherited conditions.
Significant health issues in the Tamaskan breed, which only affect a very small percentage of the overall population, include: hip dysplasia, cryptorchidism, degenerative myelopathy, epilepsy, Addison's Disease, juvenile cataracts, and digestive problems / food allergies.
Intelligent, sociable, obedient, tolerant and agile
How much exercise does a Tamaskan need every day? Tamaskan is a medium-sized working breed. They need, on average, a 45-60 minute walk every day or two 30-minute walks. Lack of exercise can lead to behavioral issues.
You will want to brush your dog three to four times per week during those peak shedding periods. However, a weekly brushing to remove dirt, debris, and dead hair is enough for the rest of the year when your dog won't be shedding very much.
Although their exact origins are unknown, these dogs were primarily mixes of Arctic breeds such as the Alaskan Husky, Alaskan Malamute, Canadian Eskimo Dog
