Kanuck was initally imported to Sweden together with several other dogs but did not stay on in his first home there. Karsten Grønås took care of him for a while, before he moved to Christen Rose Andersen in 2008. Christen describes Kanuck as a natural / born leader. The breeder of Kanuck, Francois Hamel (Kennel Loufranc-Maximus), in Quebec was an accomplished middle distance running in Canada until unfortunately he hurt his back. Kanuck who was young when Francois was injured, was instead trained by Mike Santos until was exported to Sweden. Kanuck did not participate in many races. Christen used Kanuck primarily for breeding and training young dogs. Kanuck is a pure Seppala. This means that the ancestors are by definition based on 9 dogs from Harry Robert Wheeler's kennel in Quebec. Dogs from Leonhard Seppala's kennel (later kalled Bowlake) are not as pure Seppala because they contain a lot of New England blood.
