Silver Chief. Silver Chief was created by the Canadian author Jack O’Brien and appeared in six novels from 1933 to 1961, beginning with Silver Chief, Dog of the North.

Silver Chief is part Husky and part wolf. He is found in the wild and adopted by Jim Thorne, a Sergeant in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Silver Chief quickly comes to love Thorne and helped him fight crime. Silver Chief and Thorne serve under Inspect McLeod and range across Canada, catching murderers, bringing medicine to a snowbound outpost of fur-trappers far up in the Northern Territories, fighting German spies along the Cameron River and around Hudson Bay, and defeating a Communist conspiracy in Canada’s far north. Silver Chief is physically capable and possesses a greater-than-normal intelligence.
