Neon

Insley

Insley is one of the shyest dogs I have ever raised, and one that I have had to work the hardest to build a relationship with. However, after two years of trying, she has turned into one of the sweetest dogs in the Kennel and one that has great potential. A...

Doc

Doc is part of the "Tombstone" litter which was a breeding between my 2015 Yukon Quest Golden Harness Winner, Sound, and a Jeff King dog named Kroner. This is a very exciting litter because it brings a whole new bloodline to the Kennel and all signs point towards...

Silver

Silver was the beginning of Wild and Free. A 70-pound monster with more power than your average sled dog. Silver was my first sled dog and turned out to be one of my best. He came from Kurt Wold, who I have gotten most of my original dogs from. Silver has always been...

Scroggie

Scroggie is a cross between Silver and a Joee Redington sprint dog. The breeding was a bit of an experiment and most people thought I was crazy, but it worked! Scroggie has a lot of the same characteristics of his dad, Silver, and brings a lot of energy and speed to...

Kyla Durham

I still remember the day I picked Kyla up at the airport. She was silent, I had to pull words out of her mouth. The first few days were interesting. I was getting ready to go up north to mining camp for over a month, to make the chunk of money I needed to be able to...
