(NAFA points/racing history)
Dogman's Wild Zoomerang, aka "Zoom" is a Siberian Husky I found in the spring of 2004 wandering the streets of Anchorage around four months old. I was able to contact his owner who told me that he had dumped Zoom (then "Duke") because he was hyper and not potty trained. I didn't intend to keep him but the little guy stole my heart! However, Zoom gave me cause to question my ability to care for such a high energy and intelligent creature: first he stuck his little head into a seemingly innocuous jar of chew bones I had been keeping on the floor. The poor little dude was panicked beyond belief when I found him trying to extract his fluffy little noggin from the jar, I grabbed a handful of fur and yanked to the tune of a great sucking sound. Zoom was saved! Then, when he was seven months old and we were out for a hike Mr. Zoomypants thought it would be fun to jump into a rushing creek. The current swept him too far out into the middle of the creek and I'll be darned if that soaking wet little pup didn't just slip right out of his collar! Off he went downstream, out of sight in the blink of an eye. As I stood on the shore screaming his name, Zoom popped up out of the brush, shook off the excess water, and looked at me as though I were insane. Zoom is as brilliant as he is charming; he obtained his Canine Good Citizen certificate by the age of nine months and is a natural at agility and flyball. He made his agility debut in late 2005 and has earned numerous agility titles since then. In late 2006 Zoom became registered with the Delta Society as a Pet Partners Therapy Dog and since then he has visited senior citizens and children through the Pet Therapy program at Providence Hospital. He's a sweet, smart, playful puppy at home with his big brother, Sparky, big sister, Tanner, and three cats. Zoom is living proof that you don’t need a purebred dog to achieve doggy greatness.
