Alaska is a stunning Finnish import who was originally imported to Australia by myself jointly with Vanessa Brotto (Articmal Kennels) and Pam Francis (Magpielane Kennels). From exceptional lines, and living up to their promise, he arrived from Finland in June 2007. He lived with and was shown by Vanessa, and was much loved by her while here.
We were impressed with Alaska from the first photos we received. Like his sire, he has a lovely solid construction, with good bone, and is beautifully balanced. He has nice moderate angulation, good topline and tail set, is perfectly proportioned, and has lovely fluid movement that just takes your breath away. Alaska made his own mark in Finland, being show three times and taking one Best Puppy and two Best Opposite Sex Puppies - once at the March specialty show where I had the pleasure to show him myself. In Australia has was a consistent challenge winner, from a very young age, with several Royal BOB's under his belt and a raft of class in group and show awards.
He now lives in the USA where he is owned by Lisa Hall, Linda Marden (Sugarok Kennels) and Donna Cupka (Valkea Kennels), and has earned his American Grand Championship as well as contributing to the American blood lines. I do have frozen semen stored from him and hope he will be a continued addition to our breeding program in the future.
Alaska is the sire of our Bloodstone litter.
