The story of the dog traveler and his man
Meet Loki - a two-year half-half-half-day from Denver!
Loki is a cross between a husky, an arctic wolf and an Alaskan Malamute!
Loki and "his man" - Kelly Lund, adore epic walking adventures
Lund is a professional traveler in the wild and, as he himself says: "a staunch supporter of the intrinsic value of adventure and testing oneself for endurance."
“We travel simply because we like it,” he says, “and Loki is more than me.”
Loki began to climb the mountains when he was only 4 months old. Now he is not yet 3 years old, but he has already seen almost all the peaks in the western United States.
The owner sometimes releases Loki at will, and then finds him using a GPS locator attached to his collar.
"My goal is to see with my dog as much in the world as I can, and save as many memories with him and the people I love as much as possible."
Loki is more a dog than a wolf, but taking care of him and raising him is not at all easy.
"Mixing wolves and dogs requires tremendous efforts in socialization and long and hard work in education. Many people simply don’t have time for this ... A huge number of such dogs need to be adopted simply because people take them and leave them at home, but it ends with the fact that they are forced to get rid of their pets, because they simply did not understand what they were getting involved in ... ", says Lund.
