It is currently only recognized by its own independent breed clubs, but by no other major kennel club, however there are a few accredited breeders within the British Kennel Club assured breeders scheme. The dog originates from crosses among German Shepherd Dogs, Siberian Huskies, Samoyeds, Alaskan Malamute, Wolf hybrid mix. Although the original stock is Canadian in origin, the breed was developed in the UK. Embark in the USA have reported in 2017 that the breeds prominent are German Shepherd, Alaskan Malamute, Siberian Husky, Samoyed and Grey Wolf.
