|Domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris)|
Greyster is a type of dog that is bred in the mid 1980s in Norway through a series of crosses between the German Shorthaired Pointer, the Greyhound and the Alaskan Husky for the purpose of sled-pulling, skijoring, pulka races and other such sled racing. The Greyster gets its endurance from the husky, its speed from the Greyhound and its enthusiasm from the GSP, making it very well-suited for skijoring competitions and other similar sports.
Greysters have been bred for speed and endurance in winter conditions.
