Sherpa’s Lineage
Sherpa is an extremely tough dog, a dependable finisher, with excellent durability. He has been one of our most reliable and best race dogs since he was a yearling. At almost 8 he hasn’t lost a step. He has the ideal personality, loyal and happy with high attitude. Sherpa is always dependable as a hardcore finisher, works very hard, is a ravenous eater with a a great coat/feet. Sherpa became a champion against some of the best teams in the sport as a yearling, as did his brothers. Sherpa has been in many record setting race performances.

Iditarod-Sherpa trained all season for the Iditarod and was a shoe in. I had 21 dogs to pick 14 from so I opted to take a young gun instead as Sherpa has already done so much in his long career. He came to the start as my alternate. He is now retired from racing and is one of our main studs.
