Dog of the Midnight Sun documents the fortunes of the breed of dog that people associate with life in the Arctic region - the Canadian Inuit Dog. A journey through time like no other, follow the history of the iconic dog that for centuries was the only means of transport across a land vast as a continent, helping an entire civilisation get through cold winter nights that last months. Once numbering in the thousands, trace its decline in popularity as the breed finds itself competing with the onslaught of modern mechanical transport, and the persecution by authorities bent on bringing about it extinction. Watch as the long-term efforts by the community and the Eskimo Dog Research Foundation manage to revive and repopulate the numbers of this once-indispensable breed. Follow the resurgence of this iconic dog as a symbol of a region, and its new-found popularity as a tourist attraction that is as unique as the environment which it inhabits.
