Group Yearling Team 2017/2018


Chetak is named after the famous war horse Chetak. He is a superb young dog who excelled in his puppy training this winter and spring. Chetak resembles his grandpa Piper in build and coloring. He is very affectionate, focused, and will make a strong leader. His disposition is one of my favorites in the yard. He is a huge pup and may be as big as older brother Pharoah someday. Super eater

Chief Garlic has grown into a gentle giant who loves his people and has his a calm, steady, focus. He is an enormous pup and really quite odd looking with his massive body and pinhead. He works very hard and loves being a sled dog. Super eater.

The silent killer and gentle sweetheart. She's the speed demon of this litter with a perfect body and movement. She is very in tune with us and extremely loyal. She is an interesting combination of her parents.

Citrus has been the most outgoing pup of this litter since they could walk. She loves to lead! She's a very intense pup with fire in her eyes and she is fiercely loyal. She's a dynamite pup with a bright future ahead of her. While she's not as fast as her sister she makes up for it with her high IQ.

Comanche is a full throttle pup in harness and is a mellow boy with his people. He is a hard driving youngster who quickly moved to the front of the team. He has the drive to make a leader quickly. He's just about the perfect size dog for mid and long distance formats. Just an overall very nice young dog.

Houdini has loved to be in the lead since her first puppy walks and thereafter on puppy free runs and on her first run in harness at 5 months old. She's an intensely driven pup who is getting stronger with every run.

Quinn is a standout pup. She is from a split litter with a friend of ours who ended up not being able to keep her half of the pups so we ended up taking her 3 on this winter and getting to know them well. I knew at 6 weeks she was the one I felt the strongest attraction to. I was pleased my friend was smitten with a male and told her she could have first pick. I was very happy with the "2nd" pick. Quinn was an absolute firecracker and totally fearless when I brought her home. Her and her 2 siblings went into a pen with another litter the same age. She quickly rose to little alpha status. In the big puppy pack free running Quinn loved to be out front. She's learning to lead and has Outlaw's flawless movement and strong endurance.

Red Hot-2016Perm
Red Hot-2016

Red Hot showed us his passion and determination as a young pup, just like his grandma Smarty did. He was a huge pup and thus by far the slowest pup of his age group during puppy free runs, but he never gave up. When we'd wait for him long after the other pups were heading home he was so focused he wouldn't even hesitate to just keep charging forward. He has developed into a beautiful pup with a seamless gait, huge appetite, and an intense drive.

Twix is a highly driven speedster in our yearling team. The first in her litter to show an outgoing spirit and friendly nature. She’s a got solid work ethic, loves to eat, and appears tireless. She looks a lot like her uncle Pan.

Wise Guy-2016

Wise Guy could be the most talented athlete from last summer's pups, if not first he's in the top 3. He's an easy going guy unless he's after a lady then he's one noisy pup. A behavior that reminds me very much of his great-grandpa Seger. His movement is exactly what we were hoping to get out of Outlaw, there's just no better gait. Period.
