KIPP D´AMUNDSEN KENNELS PROUDLY PRESENT:
-= CANUCK =-
NorthWapiti´s CAPTAIN CANUCK
Born: August 1, 2005
CANUCK´S CURRENT WORKING STATUS:
Main String Athlete
CANUCK´S SPONSORSHIP STATUS:
This special boy found his way to the hearts of two special ladies - Barb Bennet from Indiana, USA, and
Lee DesJardines from Ontario, Canada. Thank you so much for your continuous support of Canuck!
At 4 years of age, Canuck has matured into what we have hoped for and more - dependable, hard working dog with a fluid movement and leader potential. I can´t wait to see him more leading our teams during this comming season! Once again, Canuck´s breeder Karen Ramstead was right, when she said some males mature slowly, but it´s worth the wait, which is what goes well with our own philosophy that "good things come to those who wait" :)
Canuck has become one of the key dogs in the mainstring team, as well as our key stud dog, and we expect to have a few more litters sired by him in the future. His contribution to our team, recent and future, is becomming obvious.
Once more, we would like to express our gratitude to Karen and Mark for letting this very special dog live with us!
Older info about Canuck:
This youngster has a background of a superstar. Both his parents are remarkable representatives of the breed and they are both multiple Iditarod finishers and leaders. His mom is the first SH female to finish the Iditarod.
Canuck took a while to mature, having some issues related to the long travel to his new home at a sensitive age.
Knowing some males take longer to mature completely, we gave this special and very sweet boy the time he needed, knowing that "the big things" need time :)
He is a very sweet, loving, affectionate dog and he is one of the fastest dogs with incredible flexibility in our yard. He is also quite a brat and loves to tease younger pups! He reminds us a lot in behaviour of his other Canadian buddy (from a total different lineage) Tuk. On the other hand, I don´t remember having a dog as sweet, gentle and tolerant with little puppies. He absolutly adorred his three girls from the Snowstorm litter he sired, and is absolutley cool with cats.
Outside he is never still for a milisecond, but indoors he transforms into a perfect house dog.
We are very excited to see him mature more and become a part of our future racing team. Watch for this super boy in the future!
