Meet Our Dogs
Blanca is just a young pup, experiencing her first winter! She and her siblings are learning a lot from their momma, Zig. Blanca is enthusiastic and vocal-she's always letting us know she wants to RUN! Most recently, she tried the lead position and did well. We're excited to see her transition into a yearling and watch her continue to excel!
Butch is just a young pup and already the biggest of the three. He is an excellent eater and is always excited to see the food bucket come through the door. This blondie is already taking on the physical characteristic of his father Kenmore, who is EXTREMELY handsome. Lucky pup! He and his siblings are great off leash and have excellent recall. Can't wait to watch them grow up!
Carl is strikingly handsome. He has stolen the hearts of hundreds of guests at Husky Homestead. He loves being the center of attention and affection, but his demands are cute and subtle. He draws you in with his floppy ears and bright blue eyes he got from his momma, Zig. As a 2 year old, he is a super star in training. In fact, he is turning into a very solid leader and enjoys running up front with his brother, Swenson. He ran his first Iditarod as a yearling in 2017 and is roaring into the 2018 race season!
Etta is going to go up to be a sweet heart just like her momma Skeeter! She has two brothers so she is feirce and strong as she has to establish her spot around the food dish. She and her brothers rarely go a day without a long walk. These siblings are great off leash and have excellent recall. Can't wait to watch them grow up!
Hombre is a big boy already. This giant has a lot of energy and has yet to learn how to focus it on any one thing with the exception of RUNNING. Which is typical for a male this age! He loves it when his go-to guy, Cody, brings out the harnesses and prepares for a run. On the towline he turns into a beast and will pull non-stop on his run. It is clear that this young stud will be an excellent team mate and a key component in deep snow. He loves to go, go, go!
Talk about a good looking guy! Lobo has a beautiful chestnut coat and floppy ears. He is a maniac on the tow line. Both he and his brother, Hombre, are developing into the brawn of the team. An incredible eater and a hard worker, we have no doubts when he comes of age, he'll be an asset to the team!
Luna is quickly turning into her mother Zig. Her movements already mimic those of her mother as she moves down the trail. Cody quickly picked her out to try in lead, and she hasn't looked back since! She is the smallest of the litter, but has the spunk to be a dog 3 times her size. This grey eyed lady is already learning to fall into an easy trot and leads the team by gliding down the trail.
This little black beauty is wise beyond his years. He has the personality of a 7 yr old lab. In the team he pulls with all of his might. In the house, he enjoys stretching out on a dog bed. His most difining physical characteristic is his curly tail! He is calm, loving, and a great snuggler!
Sammy is named for the iconic Alaskan King Salmon. The rest of his littermates are growing up with Jesse Holmes in Nenana, AK. Sammy is already a dapper dude. He is always smiling and wagging his tail. Calm and easy to handle to and from the towline, he seems to take every training run in stride. Though he acts older than his actual age, he still has lots of growing to do. We have high hopes for this young pup.
Sol is the sunshine in the yard. She has brilliant blue eyes she inherited from her momma, Zig, and a gorgeous short but thick coat. Another one for the Cinco De Mayo litter that took to the lead position on the first try. She moves down the trail with no hesitation. Long legs and an athletic build, she closely resembles her grandmother who was a super star in Streeper's sprint team years ago. Sol has already attended a coupe trade shows and met hundreds of dog fans. She is perfectly behaved and relaxed in a busy atmosphere. We have no doubt she will be on the Husky Homestead team for years to come!
Suerte is the largest and dopiest of the Cinco De Mayo crew. He is extremely handsome and just by looking at him you can see he never misses a meal. For a big guy, he has a lot of bounce; bouncing around his house, bouncing while getting harnessed, bouncing down the trail in team. He often seems like he has no idea whats going on, but he is just happy to be a part of it. Something about this young guy is extremely endearing and he already has a list of fans a mile long. We are excited to watch him grow into his big feet and see what his future holds.
As his personality begins to come out, the staff agrees he is one of the sweetest dogs to ever be raised at Husky Homestead. A compliment that says a lot about this little guy’s character! Sundance and his littermates already are proving themselves to really be something special. The three siblings are great off leash and have excellent recall. Can't wait to watch them grow up!
