Sultana, with an uncharacteristically patient expression, looms out of the darkness to say hello.

Sultana (F)

: 8/05/2006
Weight: 70 lbs
Climbing Routes Litter

Sultana was the only female from her litter, so as a pup growing up with eight brothers she quickly became the ringleader of the bunch. She is a cute, blue-eyed tom boy. Her tenacity and intelligence have made her a great lead dog since her first full winter in harness. Her only downfall is a lack of patience, which she will hopefully outgrow. In summer 2009 she gave birth to the volcano litter – some of the biggest pups the park kennels has seen!
