Egret comes to us from Yukon Quest champs Smokin’ Ace Kennels. At ATAO we like dogs with sweet personalities and hard work ethic, and Egret fits right in. Egret’s a little shy at first but she’s making new friends with the other athletes here, especially Nala and Annie. Annie and Egret have become especially close. I don’t know if it’s because they are the two shy girls, or they just get along! But it’s pretty cute to watch them play.

In the team, Egret is a workhorse. She is the only dog I probably won’t try in lead, but she is an important and natural team and wheel dog. Her tug line is always tight and her attitude is always GO! When she’s at ease and feeling comfy, she likes to zoom around in super fast circles in the play pen or at her house, running with her butt and tail tucked down in excitement. She also enjoys monitoring the passage of all the puppies who have to go by her house to play or go for walks.

Egret loves to sit on her house and be pet. She also love love loves the couch. I think she is realizing that ATAO is home, which makes me really happy. She’s a beautiful, good dog.

We’re so excited to have her on the team!
