Yukon King - Alaskan husky dog on the northwest adventure SERGEANT PRESTON OF THE YUKON/CBS/1955-58.

Sergeant Preston and Yukon King

According to the program's opening Yukon King was:

"The swiftest, and strongest lead dog, breaking the trail in the relentless pursuit of lawbreakers in the wild days of the Yukon."

Yukon King debuted on the 1947 radio program CHALLENGE OF THE YUKON where Yukon King was raised by a wolf named Three Toes and rescued from the attack of a wild lynx by Constable William Preston (Richard Simmons), a Royal Northwest Mounted Policeman assigned to the Yukon Territory of the 1890s.

"On, King! On, you huskies!" was a popular phrase used on the series.

When Sergeant Preston captured the bad guys he turned to his faithful canine sidekick and said: "Well King, looks like this case is closed!"

TRIVIA NOTE: Yukon King (of Malamute breed) was trained by Beverly Allen.
