The Litter has Arrived!
Points Unknown has been anxiously awaiting the birth of the Cranberry and McKenzie Hedlund Husky litter out of Knik, Alaska. On May 31, 2007 five pups were born; four females and one male. In August, we will travel to Alaska to pick up the female pup that will expand our current freight dog lines.
McKenzie is a deep line Hedlund Husky with Kim Fitzgerald of Mush Knik Networking. Kim is responsible for beginning the preservation efforts for this rare line of Alaskan Husky some 17 years ago and more recently, founding the Hedlund Husky Preservation Project. McKenzie is one of the most spectacular males that has come out of her breeding efforts. He has an excellent work ethic, is very intelligent, has exceptional conformation and an extremely mellow temperament.
Cranberry joined Kim in 2006. She is an Alaska bush trapline dog that enjoys working and has a well rounded and laid back temperament and excellent conformation. Cranberry was carefully selected to be added to our Hedlund line breeding program. Both Cranberry and McKenzie have wonderfully dense coats and are long legged with rangy builds. This pup will be a welcome and exciting addition to the Points Unknown kennel.
