Jiro Famous Dogs

One of two Sakhalin Huskies to have miraculously survived a harsh Antarctica winter having been left behind by Japanese scientists during an unplanned evacuation of their research centre in 1958. Pictured above, they were rescued eleven months later!

Jiro’s three year old brother, Taro, was the other survivor!
