Moto was rescued at 4 months old. He was locked in a small apartment in a kennel that he was to big for. The kid didn't have time for him and he was destroying the apartment. We found Moto on Craigslist and went and picked him up the next day. We moved on to some land where Moto can run his little heart out. Moto instantly became best friends Diesel. It's so cute Diesel curls up in Moto tail. Moto was born July 4th 2012. He is a red and white male standard Siberian Husky. Moto has had several puppies over the years and loves being a dad but retired in 2018. Now he does the thing he loves most is mushing and running. The instant he sees his harness he goes crazy and starts doing flips. Anything that has to do with running it's meant for Moto. From running next to the four wheeler, parachuting, dryland mushing with a cart or scooter and dog sledding with a sled in the snow. How did Moto get his name? Moto loves to go fast and we love watching dirt bikes race at motocross races so we chose Moto out of motocross. Moto is microchipped.
MJ is a red and white female standard Siberian Husky from Little Turkey Kennels. She was born on December 2nd 2012. MJ is a very laid back husky. She doesn't like doing much of anything besides giving you high fives and laying around. She gets irritated if there are other animals around but loves being around humans. MJ loved being a mom, she had several litters all red and white but had 1 black and white puppy. She has since then retired in 2018. MJ has been fighting a skin disease the last 5 years called Fibromas. They are a bunch of tumors all over her body. She has been on many different antibiotics, steroids, home remedies and even surgery but none it has helped. We talked to a few others that their Huskies had this and she will have it for the rest of her life. The only thing we can do is keep it clean and dry. So during the snowy or rainy months MJ has to wear a light weight blanket jacket and we clean it several times a week. Otherwise she is a very healthy loving girl that just wants your attention and loves going for car rides. A friend of ours recommended the name MJ and it just stuck so we went with it, that's how MJ got her name. MJ is microchipped.

He didn't like to many other animals. He did love his fur mom MJ. They would sleep next to each other every night. Brutus favorite thing to do was run off ahead of us about half a mile or so so he wouldn't be next to other dogs. He would never run off off but would constantly look back to make sure we were coming. He also loved the rock pile that is along our road. He would stand there on a snowy winter day just taking life all in. Brutus was an amazing dog.

Meeka was born June 27th 2014 at Little Turkey Kennels. Meeka is a black and white wooley female Siberian Husky. Meeka is our escape artist. She can destroy a chain link panel in matter of seconds. So we have to have 2 different fencing in her kennel. We use the chain link panels and then put cattle panels over it. We also put cattle panels in the ground because let's be real if she can destroy chain link fence she can destroy chicken wire. Then we put large rocks along the fence after we have dug the cattle panels in the ground. We win for now haha. Meeka has had several litters and loves being a mom she rarely likes to share her babies with us. she is very protective mom, but has since retired in 2018. Now Meekas favorite thing to do is to go mushing. She loves mushing more by herself as the boys annoy her but will run with a team once in awhile. She loves spending one on one time with her mom and loves watching TV. Meeka is sisters with Braaaap. How did Meeka get her name? We just heard a friend say it one day and it just stuck. Meeka is microchipped.
Braaaap was born on July 7th 2015 at Little Turkey Kennels. Braaaap is an agouti female wooley Siberian Husky. Braaaap is kind of a bully. She is a lot smaller then the rest of the pack but loves to pick on every one. Braaaap has arthritis in her back hind knees so she can't do any activities like mushing or agility etc. Braaaap goes on lots of walks otherwise lays around but once in awhile gets to do zoomies and boy is she fast. Braaaap had one litter of puppies and she was not cut out to be a mom so she never had another litter again. Braaaapy girl loves everyone but her favorite are younger children. She just adores them. Braaaap is sisters to Meeka just out of different litters. We often get asked why the name braaaap? Braaaap is the sound of a 2 stroke motor in like snowmobiles or dirt bikes. We love watching dirt bike races and thought how neat it would be to name her braaaap seems she loves doing zoomies like she would be at a race track. Braaaap is microchipped.
