In 2019, we welcomed our first female Greenland to the pack - Alice!
She comes from Marit Ånes of Suna-Sanik Kennel in Norway and is cousin to our Noah with their mother's being littermates.
Her Mum, Pocahontas, is a loving girl, a big character in their kennel, and an accomplished lead dog in Marit's Team, including stints in single lead for 300km of the prestigious Polar-Distans race. She has also earned many excellent accolades in the show ring as well as her Norwegian Champion title & Norwegian Trek Champion title.
Her father is also bred by Marit, and is a sweet boy who has seen much success in showing, including BOB, CAC & CACIB wins culminating in his Champion title.
Already Alice is proving a wonderful mix of sweet-stubbornness and cheeky-energy.
Always ready for cuddles (on two legs and with a running start where possible) she might be the smallest dog in our kennels at the moment, but she more than makes up for it in attitude and certainly keeps the boys in check.
Her show career has started well, with a trip over to Ireland in Mid-March for her first Baby Puppy classes where she gained back to back 1st / Very Promising gradings, and then at 6 months and 2
days she had her first UK Open Show experience, winning her Junior class and then not only winning Best Puppy but Reserve Best of Breed!
Since then, she has picked up the pace in the UK show scene, with numerous Best Bitch & Reserve Best Bitch wins over older competition at Championship Show level, plus Best Puppy & Puppy Group placings at Open Shows and even stealing a Best of Breed or two from the older boys.
In the Summer, she started to show more in Europe and has started both her Irish & Netherlands Champion titles, as well as gaining points towards Junior Champion titles and gaining the Benelux Junior Winner title in Liege, Belgium.
2020 of course has proven a strange year, with the coronavirus outbreak essentially stopping a majority of shows after Crufts, but in the 3 or so months available so far Alice has had a strong start, with class wins, an Open Show BAVNSC & BOB, not to mention Best Bitch at her Crufts debut! What a clever girl!
With such a good working pedigree it is no surprise she has taken well to working in harness, placing third against more experienced competition with a pull of 16 her bodyweight in her first
weightpull competition, and is already proving a motivated team dog on the rig.
She had her first competitive experience running alongside Dylan at SHCGB Sherwood in January 2020, and came away with a trophy for 1st place in their class!
And proving she is not just a pretty face in the show ring, Alice is also one of only 5 Greenland Dogs to gain a KC GCDS Puppy Foundation obedience award here in the UK, passing the requirements just shy of her 6 month birthday.
We have high hopes for what Alice can bring to the breed in this country and hope she will make her family proud :)
