[RCMP Ensign, M Division, Yukon Territory]

Blazon of Division M badge: A husky dog's head erased Argent within an orle of eight bezants.
Chris Pinette, 14 February 2000

Quoting the official Yukon website page regarding its coat-of-arms:

"The Yukon Coat of Arms is a red, blue, gold and white shield surmounted by a malamute (or husky) standing on a mound of snow."

Which would seem to incidate that the dog on the RCMP flag may be either a malamute or a husky. However, since the RCMP used as sleigh dog the type known as "Mackenzie River Husky". (outside link)
