Planned Breeding - Dylan x Alice (Winter 2020)
After several years ownership of the breed, we at Fenrirkin are now considering our first Greenland Dog litter – an exciting event here in the UK as it is likely to be the first litter registered for the breed in this country since 2015!!
The sire of the litter is Dylan - IRE / POL / HUN / BEL / NED / LUX / INT / BNLX CH Sledog Brutte Coffea Del Fenrirkin (AnCh'17, CW'18'19, GW'19, AW'19, BW.NL'18.BE'18'19, WW'18, EW'18'19)
Bred in the UK by Nicola Singh & Stuart Winterton of the affix Sledog, Dylan is from their breeding between Puck & Java, both dogs imported from the Tasermiut
kennel in Norway who made their impact in the UK Show Ring with 3x Crufts Best of Breeds between them alongside many other awards.
Dylan has not disappointed in making them proud in the show ring and is possibly one of the most highly titled Greenland dogs in Europe. His page can give more details, but he boasts 8 Champion titles, 16 Winners titles, 37 Best of Breeds from FCI Championship Shows with group shortlists in Ireland & Belgium as well as a Group 3 in Ireland.
Here in the UK he has 20 Best of Breeds / BAVNSCs from UK Championship Shows, 25 Best of Breeds / BAVNSCs & Multiple Group Placings from UK Open Shows, not to mention Top Greenland Dog in the Our Dogs Competition in 2018 & 2019 and Top Greenland Dog in the GDCGB GDOTY Competition from 2016 – 2019.
Not just doing me proud in the show ring, he has proved a strong worker, currently being the breed record holder in weightpull here in the UK with a pull of 1700lb / 21x his bodyweight. As well as running with my Malamutes in longer distance 10-15 mile treks, he has multiple rally class wins & placements running with dogs of different breed & ages from my own and others kennels.
He passed his KC GCDS Puppy Foundation obedience award at 4 months of age and has represented the breed at multiple seminars and Discover Dogs events too, making him an all round ambassador for the breed in the UK.
In character Dylan is an intelligent, charismatic, affectionate and strong willed character of a dog; he gives everything 100% making him hard work sometimes, with a stubborn streak but an
He is a large male with a harsh coat, strong topline, balanced angulation and good strong feet. He is hip scored under the breed average and has been eye tested clear for hereditary cataracts.
The dam of the litter is Alice - Suna-Sanik's Freidige Alice Av Fenrirkin (BJW.BE'19)
Bred by Marit Anes of the Suna-Sanik kennel, she comes from two Suna-Sanik parents – Pocahontas & Storm - both of whom are Champion titled in their Native Norway and share multiple show
She also comes from a strong working pedigree, with her Mum, Aunt, Uncle and Cousins all proven workers in Marit’s team, earning Norwegian Trek Champion titles alongside numerous racing accolades under their belt - including placing at prestigious races such as the Polardistans.
Here in the UK, Alice has certainly made her mark in the show ring – in her first 6 months of showing she earned 7 Best Bitch / BOS awards alongside 3 Best Puppy awards at Championship Shows, plus
2 Best of Breeds, 5 Best Puppy & 1 Puppy Group placing at Open Shows.
Outside the UK she has started both her Champion & Junior Champion titles with wins in Ireland, the Netherlands & Belgium. Her efforts gained her Runner Up Top Greenland Dog , Top Bitch & Top Puppy in the GDCGB GDOTY Competition for 2018/19
Not just a pretty face in the ring she has shown a promising start as a worker, with great drive in training on the rig and her first weightpull competition under her
belt giving her a personal best of 16x her bodyweight!
In character she is utterly cheeky but a complete sweetheart, generally either on 2 legs for hugs or on her back for tummy scrubs. She is very people orientated and super playful – if a bit pushy – with other dogs, making her a delight to have around, albeit a very stubborn one! Like Dylan, she too has earned her KC GCDS Puppy Foundation award and has represented the breed at Discover Dogs and breed seminars.
Like Dylan, Alice shares a typical Greenland expression and head piece, solid bone and a dense, harsh coat, traits likely to be shared with their offspring. Both are very intelligent, high energy and very tactile, people-orientated dogs, and so we expect the temperaments to be very loving but likely quite demanding and challenging, so certainly not for the first time sled dog owner.
Both have a solid pedigree of proven show & working dogs behind them and we have high hopes this drive will be evident and can be channeled well by any future puppy owners. Alongside Suna-Sanik & Tasermiut, the pedigree boasts many influential kennels on both sides including Racystar, Tinkas & Qornoq's Arctic. It is largely an outcross but linebreeds slightly on NO-UCH NO-TCH Suna-Sanik's Hunting Skar & NO-TCH Suna-Sanik's Frontrunner Era.
Both parents are hip scored under the breed average and will be eye tested for hereditary cataracts (Dylan is tested as clear, Alice to be tested in the Summer of
