BIG man, Canyon is 1/2 malmute. He is a hard worker, who knows when to
lean into the harness with all his might. When Canyon was younger he
was often skittish with strangers, and it can still take some time for
you to earn his confidence, but by now it seems more like a game to
him. You will actually become instant friends if you scratch a special
spot on his back. Often you will see him scratch it on the stake out
chain if he can get underneath it or up against a tree. Canyon was also
a team mate withMilesandVinsonin 1995 when they went to the North Pole withWill Steger.
