A Sakhalin Husky. As of 2011, there are only two surviving pure bred members of the breed, which never recovered from the ill effects of World War II.

Aaw, those are cute. It's always sad when a breed dies out or starts disappearing. Why do you like the breed? I haven't heard anything about them before. :)

(from japanesedog.org)
The Sakhalin Husky, is also known as the Karafuto-Ken. The breed comes from Sakhalin (known in Japanese as Karafuto), a large island in the Sea of Okhotsk, just north of the northernmost Japanese island (Sakhalin is part of Russia).
Remember the 2006 Disney movie Eight Below? The movie was a Hollywood adaptation of the 1983 Japanese film, Nankyoku Monogatari (Antarctica), about the true story of Taro and Jiro, two Sakhalin Huskies. In 1958, during an unplanned evacuation at Japan’s Showa Antarctic Research Station, 15 dogs were left tied up outside, as the personnel assumed they’d be back shortly to retrieve the dogs. Unfortunately, personnel were not able to return for a year.

They were expecting to find the 15 dogs dead, but were amazed to see that 8 had slipped their collars, and 2 were alive- Taro and Jiro (the other 6 dogs were never found). The two dogs became national heroes, much like the Akita, Hachiko (in fact, all three dogs have been stuffed & are displayed as national treasures - Hachiko & Jiro at the National Science Museum in Tokyo, and Taro at the Hokkaido University museum).
