    All I know is West Laikas are more common, East Laikas are rarer. I know a few West Laikas but no Easties! I've heard that ESL's are more of a hunting dog, and highly aggressive toward large animals. This dog is badass (ESL)...

    purely second hand from the russian guy in VA that breeds WSLs, but the WSL is smaller & more of a tree dog w/ a small game background (sable, squirrel, & lynx). the ESL is bigger w/ a background of hunting big "ground" game like brown bear, moose & tiger. the WSL should also have some stock working ability from the reindeer work done w/ some.
