Vax is a Eurohound bred in Scotland, by the Leasks. She is a mix of Alaskan Husky and German Shorthaired Pointer from Egil Ellis lines. She is a complete nutter both in harness and out, but has a very sweet if wild nature. She will run her heart out for you if you asked and she is always ready for more.
Vax is still young, but is quite an experienced sleddog already, competing on snow at the European Championships, where she joined only a handfull of British dogs to ever take part in the dreaded mass start. This involves 18 teams all racing at once and some 72 dogs on course. It takes great skill, courage and dogs to compete in this discipline.
Vaxel with her head to run, didn’t get phased by so many other dogs and powered home to a brilliant 14th place. She isn’t the most powerful dog we have, but her incredible drive to run earns her a place in the 4 dog dream team.
