Birch Hill Chinooks started in the fall of 1997 when we had a litter of Chinook puppies in Fairbanks, Alaska. They were a total of 7 puppies – 5 boys and 2 girls.
We kept two puppies – Grayling (a boy) and Talkeetna (a girl) from the litter. Then some time later the second girl got re-homed with us. At one point we had 10 dogs but with age the number of dogs became smaller to the point where we had 3 dogs. Our last dog died in 2012 who was 14 1/2 years of age was from this litter.
In September of the same year we took in Rogue as re-homed Chinook. So, nearly two years later we’re still getting used to friendly very social behavior.
In April of 2013, we help another Chinook owner and gave a temporary home to Lolo (pictured in the header and below) for a few months later. More like 7 months later she went back to owner for some time. Now we have again for a little while to come.
Now, I am going take a lot of photos of these two dogs and share these photos for a long time to come. I may get a puppy at some point when there is a more permanent place to live for us.
