Yakutian Laika

Today I saw a dog whose face was just like my dog Mungo except for one thing it had blue eyes .
I asked itís owner if it was a cross between a collie and a husky .
She explained it was a Yukutian Laika which comes form Siberia .
Only the 10 th of such a dog in the UK .

She was so nice she said it was faster than a collie ( she had a collie as well ) but not so excitable yet very forward going . They are used in sIberia as sled dogs .

Really unusual .

This is not the actual dog but the eyes are the same .

Never heard of that breed before, but it's a bit like an Akita. Lovely looking dog.

Wasn't Laika the name of the first dog in space?

Re: Yakutian Laika

Don't know if I am keen on those blue eyes - sorry Muddy.

I think a lot of Husky type dogs, as well as Blue Merle Collies have the blue eyes too, don't they.

You will know the answer to this Muddy . . . years ago I was told horses with 'wall eyes' can never go blind.
Is there any truth in that?

Re: Yakutian Laika

I have never heard that Mups .
I find blue eyes vaguely disconcerting.
This dog was friendly but people were wary of it.

Yes, I think I do too.
I much prefer a kinder brown eye.
