Darwin is Crystal Mountain’s newest Avalanche Dog. He’s 8 weeks old and he’s the cutest puppy I’ve ever seen. Well, that is since Luna was a puppy. But still, he’s pretty darn cute. Darwin just arrived from Canada (his new owner/handlers Mikey and Kim took 3 plane
rides to bring him home).
Darwin is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever and he will probably top out at about 40 lbs.
This small size will be an advantage for him and his handlers. Darwin is our first Toller and we can’t wait to see him succeed. Right now, he’s getting accustomed to snow, people and learning his obedience. This summer Mikey and Kim plan to train Darwin on his obedience, getting him used to the patrol dog lifestyle, so he can start next season as a well-behaved dog, ready to work.
