Howdy, Macgellan here!
As far as I can tell from conversations in broken English, the dogs work a variety of jobs in support of local fishing, research expeditions and even pulling tourists around. They are generally bigger and beefier than our beloved Alaskan Huskies, obviously bred for strength and durability rather than speed. The dogs appeared to be in very good shape and quite well suited to their environment. As you will see, many of them have really, really furry coats!
