Okay, purely in the spirit of being helpful... And as this genuinely confused me when I first joined this site, I had not heard of the Northern Inuit, so had to do some homework. A siberian cross malamute is commonly known as a 'Huskamute' but is still just a husky/malamute crossbreed. The word 'Huskamute' is a portmanteau word (word that takes the beginning of one word and adds the end of another to create a new word that includes the meaning of both parent words), you need to add a german shepherd to the mix for it to be of the 'Northern Inuit' type. After breeding these crosses together the Northern Inuit society, the British Inuit society and a couple of other groups are breeding these type dogs to create a Northern Inuit breed that will if mated together always produce pups of the same type, thus making them a true 'breed' which could then be registered with the Kennel club as a new breed. At this time, this new breed 'the Northern Inuit' has yet to be recognised by the Kennel club and so is still effectively a crossbreed. Within the breed you need to have papers from one of the societies to truly claim your dog to be 'Northern Inuit'. For instance I own a Huskamute (Husky/malamute cross) If I were to mate her to a german shepherd, the resulting puppies would be Husky/malamute/shepherd mixes and not Northern inuits, though if I were unscrupulous I could advertise them as Northern inuit type dogs. Unless one of the societies that are creating and registering this type of dog were to sanction my new puppies I could not 'officially' call them Northern inuits, nor show them in any NI shows. I hope that helps.
