GALENA´S SPONSORSHIP STATUS:
Galena is very proud to have found sponsor - Jachym's mom Eva Lukesova, from Cernosice, Czech Republic. Thank you Eva so much for your support of this extraordinary and multitalented girl!
Galena is the only girl in our Iditarod and SH history related "G" litter, and that alone makes her special! She is probably the sweetiest, most adorable puppy we´ve had here since quite a while ago. She is the fastest and smartest from the litter and has quite an adventureous, independent aproach to life, always discovering new parts of the garden, dog yard and forrest, and leading her brothers when running lose on our trail.
She is also very attached to us and is a great kisser. Although she always has a sad expression in her chocolate brown eyes on the photos, in fact she´s a smiley, happy gal with a big sense of humor. A true character. We are totally in love with our little star!
