Of the six I have now, 3 came from Karen and are pure bred Siberians. Two came from mushing kennels here in Alaska and one came from a tour operator at Chena Hot Springs resort outside Fairbanks. Chena was on her way to the pound because she was shy and not a good match for a tourist group. She turned out to be one heck of sled dog though. Spirit is the only one I've had since he was a puppy.
People cannot make gross exaggerations about sled dogs. All these dogs needed was to be given a chance to adapt. I love my dogs and cannot imagine life without them.

A game of husky tag is their biggest joy. They are such athletes and so much fun to watch.
