Roy was our long coated malamute. Javier rescued him from the shelter
in 2004, just the day before he was going to put to sleep.
He was his first malamute and the one that made fall in love with
We don't know nothing about his origins or true age, but workers
at the shelter thought he was about 1 year old, so we think he was
born in 2003.
He was a great worker. Javier wanted to compete with him in mushing
races in nordic class if available, but he needed to be a pedigreed
dog. So he went to a breed recognition, and fortunately Barbara
Brooks said he was a wolly malamute.
Besides of being such a hansome sable boy, he was so loving and affectionate
that he prefered a caress to the food. But overall, as I said, he
was a great worker, mostly in bikejoring and weight pull.
