Folsom

DOB: 8-20-2009
Nitro x Suspect
Weight: 52 lbs

Folsom is a true “Diamond in the Rough”. He is an incredibly gifted athlete. He has been our main leader since he was an undeveloped, but naturally driven 2 year old. He has superior endurance, focus, and he will try his hardest in tough situations without question. His natural abilities and our training methods have enabled him to become the best he can be. He was very shy, nearly untouchable when we bought him from his second home, and in poor mental and physical health. I clicked with Folsom the instant I saw him and him with me. We’ve had a special connection from the first. He was shy but crawled over to me with strong eye contact and he had good energy. The guy I bought him from said that was more than he had gotten from him in 6 months of not warming up and nipping everyone. It took over a year before he could fully relax enough to have his back, feet, and whole body touched. He loves to free run and his confidence level is now very high. Folsom is a father and grandfather to many offspring around the state and in other parts of the world. In November of 2014 Folsom developed a cough that has taken us to 7 different vets as well as speciality consultants. He has had MRI’s and multiple scoping with no valid answers. He doesn’t appear sickly and has continued to train and race. He loves being a sled dog and does not like being left out.
