The "Tamaskan Dog" is a crossbred dog of sleddog type, created in Finland, and as of 27 November 2013, has been recognized by the American Rare Breed Association, and the Kennel Club of the United States of America, two related dog fancier and pedigree registries. It is a highly versatile dog that can excel in agility, obedience and working trials. Morphologically, Tamaskans have been bred to look like wolves and wolfdog-hybrids and have a notable lupine appearance. Although there are a little over 600 registered Tamaskan Dogs worldwide, increasing interest has resulted in their spread throughout continental Europe, the UK and the USA, as well as Canada and Australia.
Tamaskans are large, athletic dogs; slightly taller in size than German Shepherds. With regard to build, they are substantially larger than typical sled dogs but smaller than the Alaskan Malamute. They generally resemble grey wolves and wolfdogs.
On average, Tamaskan adults measure around 24-28 inches tall at the shoulder and typically weigh between 55-88 pounds –the heaviest recorded Tamaskan males weigh just under 50 kg. Females are usually slightly smaller and lighter than males, with a distinct feminine appearance. Males are more heavyset with broader heads and a heavier bone structure. Tamaskans have a lupine appearance with a straight bushy tail and thick double coat that comes in three main colors: Wolf Gray, Red Gray, and Black Gray. Each individual guard hair is agouti banded along its length. The almond-shaped eyes range from yellow through to amber and brown, with lighter colored eyes being very rare. Blue eyes are not acceptable, nor are mismatched eyes.
