Breed composition differences between Alaskan sled dog sub-populations. Four sprint sub-populations and four distance sub-populations were identified through cluster analysis (Figure 4G). These sub-populations were analyzed for breed composition differences as depicted. Each component breed is represented by a unique color (which corresponds to colors used in Figure 6). The sprint sub-populations illustrate the greatest differences in the Saluki, Pointer, and Weimaraner.
