My first cherished home-bred boy the largest of the litter who attracted many nicknames whilst being only a puppy. Tonka toy being one name from which we decided to call him

Toko (meaning lion) linked to my kennel name Tokosha. As a pup he had a real naughty outlook on life but a kind and gentle character always the first to dive under the sideboard to hide from the other pups.

A handsome boy and always that forever young innocent face, definitely melting the hearts of many the judges. He loves to charge around the paddock and will play all day. Taking the shows by storm in 2009 he achieved many accolades the best being Top Malamute Puppy 2009 in the UK Malamute of the Year Awards.

Toko exceeded our expectations and became a well know dog in the show world both here, Ireland and in Europe. He is now retired and enjoying his later years, enjoying his walks and sleeping the day away.
