Khaos - Alaskan Malamute
How long have you been working as a volunteer in animal rescue, and with Saints?

I had heard how good they were from my friend Monique Thom after she asked me to pick up a very sorry looking Malamute from Belfast that dog became my first foster and is SSDR Ace.
Worst owning a sled dog memory?
Playing hide a poo with my girl SSDR Mika. She would hide poo everywhere!!!
Best owning a sled dog memory?
Far too many to pick a top one. The countless camping trips. Seeing my girl compete in Cani-x. Gaining the trust and love of my boy SSDR Orson who has really bad fear aggression. 2 of my dogs becoming models. Seeing my pup qualify for crufts.
