We adopted Sisko in early August 2014 from the local shelter. A fwe weeks before he was left there, like a child from a broken home.
He was born in a small kennel in Willebaldessen (Lower Saxonia), bred by Ines Müller-Milgramm. Ines is quite successful in long distance trails for coaches and breeds Alaskan Huskies along the way. This dog type is not recognized as a standardized breed by any major kennel club. Among other points, it is because the appearance of these dogs varies a lot due to being bred for very different purposes. The main objective of breeding Alaskan Huskies is a very strong desire-to-go together with speed and stamina.
Sisko came to Marburg, when he was a pup, and lived with his family until he was left behind. Yet, he was in very good shape, a good boy without any major quirk (apart from his ego). Apparently, he did not do any pulling sport like dog-scooting, but was trained running beside the bike.
During his stay at the shelter, he was neutered. He cannot sire any more, but he is still interested in girls and know precisely what to do. 😉
Sisko is a confident and friendly male, not too agile, yet fast with good stamina. When Kira arrived, he instantly adopted her and helped a lot raising and training her, especially when it came to potty training. Thus, we expect him to be of good help as a foster daddy for future pups.
Apart from extensive walks and trekking, Sisko loves to romp around with other, preferably bigger dogs. He still is Kira’s guardian. In harness, we had problems due to the different size of our dogs. Therefore, I will harness them in a row with Sisko running as wheel dog.
Yet, our big boy loves to lounge a lot.
