My Re-Birthday & Rescueversary!


Furry Happy and Handsome Me!

‘Twas five years ago

That I was freed from the chain

Bound almost two years


I’ve gained fifty pounds since then

And travelled four thousand miles!



Wooohoooowooooooooo Efurrybuddy! Me and sisfur Nalle and Mamaclickyfingerssecretary were too busy on a hiking adventure to bloggy about this sooner, but two days ago on 1-11 I had my Re-Birthday and Rescueversary! Wooooooooowoooooooooooo! Fur those who do not know my past:

One cold Alaska day five years ago, some strange humans came to see me and my pack of nearly 170 Alaskan Malamutes at a puppy mill in Alaska. They were shocked by what they found – no food, no water, all the snow eaten that we could reach from our four-foot chains, and sadly some deceased members of my pack. The next day on 1-11-11, they came back, removed us from our chains, and took us to a shelter to help us get medical care, food, water, and hopefully real homes! They were true angels that came on that angelic number day!

The dogters in Alaska thought I was about 2 years old based on my teeth and only weighed 35 lbs! Today I weigh about 85 lbs. My furs are no longer brittle and dry, but super duper fluff, fluff, fluff. I have come a furry long way in the past five years, especially when it comes to being social with strange humans. Nobuddy would know now that I was “like a feral wolf” as my Mama says. It is Mama’s magical healing wuvwuvwuv that helped to heal so much!

Lake 22 Kuruk's 4th hike 5.20.11 005

Me in 2011 after my rescue when I was in foster care.

I tell the full story of my healing journey in my bookie: Kuruk: The Little Bear That Could, One Rescue Pup’s Journey of Healing. The purpose of my book about the story of my rescue is to raise awareness about puppy mills and animal abuse. You can order it through Create Space or Amazon (including eBook!) or Barnes & Noble or by clicking the picture of my book cover! Also: Amazon CanadaAmazon UKAmazon India, and other international Amazon stores.

I have moved from Alaska to Washington to Northern California, and now I live in Southern California in a place where I can go to the beach or hike in the mountains efurryday! Wooooowooooooooo! Here are some piccie from our our new home and latest adventures, but scroll through my bloggy to see more or follow Mama’s Instagram here (where she sometimes often posts piccies of Me and Nalle)!


I can see beauwoowooooootiful sunrises efurry morning from my bedroom window! That bright star is Venus, the morning star!


I can take Mama and sisfur Nalle to some trails right from our front door, and we’ve discovered a couple of fairy light bridges like this one!


Some mornings we go to the beach. I wuvwuvwuvs the sandy beaches!


It’s pawfect fur digging fur buried treasure!


There are lost of cooowoowoool rocks here!


I’m sure I saw a gnome scurry inside this little cave!


Some days we go to the doggie park, and I’ve been making some new furriends!


A furry pretty tree at the doggie park.


Fur my Re-Birthday I took Mama and sisfur Nalle on a new hike. I am a most pawesome trail guide, so I always lead the pack!


Luckily we got some good rains here in California, so some of the hike was lush and green!


As we climbed up and up and up, it got more like a desert. Don’t worries, Mama brings water fur us!


Someone left me this secret message.


We saw this beauwooowooootiful black bark tree!


That’s all fur now. Me and Nalle gotta plan our next hiking adventure!


In the meantime you can watch this video about my rescue. It has pawesome music toowooowoooo!
