How long have you owned a sled dog?

10 Years

What made you want a sled dog?
A friend used to tell me a horror story of a her boyfriends Siberian Husky and how, when his owner was out the room, he would forever torment her until his owner came back in. I loved the idea of how clued up they were so researched the breed… And of course they look completely stunning.

First sled dogs name and what breed?
Miya my first rescue, Siberian Husky 

How long have you been working as a volunteer in animal rescue, and with Saints?
I’ve volunteered in sled dog rescues for 10 years and have been with Saints from the word go.  

What made you want to join Saints?
I knew Heather from another rescue who would help no matter what, more than the owns of that rescue themselves. I followed Athena’s story and when Heather had announce she was creating her own rescue I had to be part of her team. She was such an inspiration through her dedication to the dogs I just wanted to help as much as I could, where I could.   

Worst owning a sled dog memory?
Probably being dragged into the river by two of my idiots as I didn’t lengthen their leads quick enough before the end of the bank… (Photo inserted here)

Best owning a sled dog memory? 
It must be watching my old boy Sam come into our home broken from a hard life and degeneration in kennels to the strong pack leader he became. It took a long time of trust and a lot of hard work but he was an amazing boy and got through it all.
