Argentine Polar Dog
The Argentine Polar Dog (Spanish: perro polar argentino) was an Argentinian breed of dog that is now extinct. Argentina polar dogs were developed by the Argentine Army for the purpose of equipping their Antarctica bases with sled dogs. The breed was a result of crossbreeding between a Siberian Husky, a Greenland Dog, an Alaskan Malamute and a Manchurian Spitz. However, the breed went extinct in 1994 due to its being moved out of Antarctica in compliance with the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty (PEPAT).
