The dog represented is of the smaller breed of Polar-dogs, and was brought to New York in one of the ships of the " Kane Expedition." Weight about twenty pounds.

He is remarkable for his activity and vigi-lence, and his sense of hearing is far more acute than that of any other dog I have ever owned. He has pluck enough to face anything, but will never quarrel, except when jealous of attention, bestowed on others, when he becomes wholly ungovernable.
