After a winter of reading (thanks to The Fan Hitch) and dreaming I have slowly gathered a few real Inuit dogs for breeding and pulling so that I may start a team. I was lucky enough to have a complete stranger in Nunavut with great experience and integrity give me two dogs from his team.
Anyway, I thought I'd let you know that The Fan Hitch has been a great resource and has helped me immensely in making the right decisions with regards to acquiring real Inuit dogs for myself and my family.

Keep updated on Facebook with the US release of INUK, starting 2nd October 2013 in San Francisco on the way to the East!
Of course we'll stay in touch... and thank you again so much for your interest in our film.
