Fundamentally, the Greenlandic dog is a worker. He’s neither a racer nor a pet. He’s incredibly tough and a primitive dog with simple interests: Food, pulling, mating, sleeping, fighting and food. One of his main attributes is his ability to pull one and a half times his own weight over great distances. The Greenlandic dog has a strong pack mentality, and respects its hierarchy, that is unless he feels there is an opening for advancement. He’s very friendly and great company but not overwhelmingly loyal. If you’re looking into a pair of fists and some serious beating, don’t expect any help from him - what so ever. You feed him so he works for you. That’s basically how deep the feelings go.
