German Shorthaired Pointer
Second Chance League notes: We took out skijoring a couple of newer dogs to the shelter. Strawberry and Kenai. They are both 3 year old pointer mixes. Very short coated and very houndy. They were turned in from outside the borough and the owner said they were too slow for his sprint team.These 2 girls are very powerful and very driven. Strawberry is the larger of the 2. Kenai is almost an identical twin to my friend Sara''s dog Dylan and her bloodlines are Issis and Oden.They had never skijored before so it was all new to them. But even as shy as they are, they are so gung ho they got used to the skis very quickly and pulled hard in a 3 dog team with one of my speedy skijor dogs.From what I could see in our 1.5 mile run, these dogs are very fast. They may not be able to do over 20 mph but they could certainly do near that. I''m not sure how fast the owner wanted to go but these dogs have good overall speed.
