Health:

Kodiak is extremely healthy. He has not had any tremors, seizures, weakness in the legs or feet, limping, panosteitis symptoms, issues with his eyes or ears, excessive scratching or other allergy symptoms, soft stools, etc. He runs, jumps, lopes, lies down, etc without any difficulty. He has never showed signs of pain or any symptoms of illness at any time. He is extremely healthy and vibrant. Kodiak has been DNA tested and is clear and not a carrier for over 172 different canine genetic diseases. His coefficient of inbreeding is 24% with no immune diversity. 

 

Temperament:

Kodiak is sweet and loving. He loves attention and affection from people. Kodiak is on the dominant side of things and takes charge over others. He does not back down easily from conflict and asserts himself with the ladies. Kodiak is indifferent to people and other dogs that he does not know, but he confidently goes up to anyone for a pet. He could take them or leave them, though, and prefers his people family and the familiarity of the dogs with which he lives. He likes consistency and routine. Kodiak is not nervous in new places, people and dogs. He only required confidence training through socialization in order to familiarize himself with places/sights/sounds outside of his home. Kodiak is not as interested in the concerns of human emotion as we like in our dogs. He does have a mind of his own and seeks his own satisfaction without thinking as much of his people. Kodiak is calm for the most part, but not as calm as we hope to achieve in our dogs. He has a tendency to vocalize when he wants something. He loves to run about the yard and is busy looking and sniffing from here to there on a walk. Kodiak is alert to his surroundings, but not as alert of our other dogs. Kodiak does not have too much prey drive. He will chase scents a short distance and look for things to pick up, but nothing extreme. Kodiak is appropriately touch sensitive, but is not as sensitive to touch as some of our other dogs. He does not require much touch in order to react. He is not as soft of a dog as some of our others. He can take a slightly firmer hand and not be bothered. Kodiak is not bothered by loud sounds in the least. He does not tremble at thunder or gun shots. It takes a lot for Kodiak to show that he is in pain. Kodiak has also inherited a slight possession trait. Although it is minimal and less than his father showed, he still feels it necessary to guard his food from other dogs and not allow other dogs to share his things when he is playing or eating. 

 

Conformation:

Kodiak has a lovely medium length coat with thick straight fur. He is a tri-silver wolf gray in color with a black mask and amber eyes. He has no white spotting. Kodiak has a longer tail that lies flat with a tendency to curve at the tip. He has a longer thicker mane, called a cape, that is soft and lush. Kodiak has a broad frame and a heavy weight, although he is not necessarily as tall as we like. Kodiak shows a thick bone structure and large-sized feet. Kodiak has a short thick neck and body length is correct. Kodiak can sway his back, which is not as desirable as a firm straight back. Kodiak has a minimal stop and slanted eyes. His ears did not rise completely, although they have risen at the base.

 

Faults:

Kodiak currently shows no faults in health. Kodiak shows no diversity in immunity, therefore, it will be necessary to counter this with a dog that has inherited differences in this area. He shows a sway back. He inherited the guarding/possession trait. He is not as aware as we like.
