"KOBUK" Our first Mal and our best friend

Multi BIS,Multi RUBIS,BISS Grand Ch Skartik Nne Nasa Crkafat

Hello and welcome to our web site. We hope you enjoy the pictures of our dogs as much as we do. Nui-Inu as we call ourselves is a play on words, Nui = Big & Inu = Dog, hence we are Big-Dog kennels, for our breed we feel this suits just fine. We are located in the North Island of New Zealand in a country setting. The ideal place to have our beloved breed. All our dogs have been imported and are from well established and highly regarded American and Australian lines. We strive for excellence and enjoy showing our dogs in a competitive show environment. We have had some great wins with our dogs including 8 Best in shows, multi in show and multi Group wins, and the icing on the cake was achieving the title of New Zealands first ever Grand Champion Alaskan Malamute. We have been enjoying this breed for 12 years now but it is only this year that we intend to breed a litter of our own. It has taken us this long to finally own dogs we feel are of a standard to breed with and we look forward to producing, with fingers crossed some future champions. We are also the "First & Only" Alaskan Malamute Kennel in New Zealand to have achieved the title of "Grand Champion" with one of our dogs. "Craka" is the very first Grand Champion Alaskan Malamute in NZ. "Multi BIS, Multi RUBIS, BISS, Grand Ch Skartik Nne Nasa Crkafat"

Sadly Tank lost the fight with old age. At 13.1/2 years old he quietly slipped away to cross the Rainbow bridge.......All who met Tank will always remember a big beautiful boy with a temperament to die for...The gentle giant at Nui-Inu. Tank was the last of our original Aussie import pack and such a pleasure to have had him with us for so long. Thanks to Steve & Phil Cauchi @ Lagrota Kennels Australia for breeding such a legend. Alaways in our hearts Tanky boy, love you to bits big boy. NZ CHAMPION Multi Best in Show winner Multi age in Show Multi Group winner Multi age in Group

Ellandar Darkas Nite (Imp Aust) "KOBUK"

We Have A Secret We have a secret, you and I that no one else shall know, for who but I can see you lie each night in fire glow? And who but I can reach my hand before we go to bed and feel the living warmth of you and touch your wolly head? And only I walk woodland paths and see ahead of me, your graceful form racing with the wind so young again, and free. And only I can see you swim in every brook I pass and when I call, no one but I can see the bending grass. In loving memory of our first boy "Kobuk" A very happy and loving best friend we had the pleasure of sharing 13 great years with....Will always be missed but never ever forgotten.......Run free my old friend. Born the best looking soft coat, no show dog here. Best pet ever.
