SCHEVENINGEN - The 11-year-old Siberian Husky Demi was voted the most sporty dog in the Netherlands at the Dogwalk 2006. In recent months, owners could nominate their dogs for the election via the Dierz.nl website. Ten nominated dogs made their appearance during the Dogwalk, where dog behavior expert Marco Starink introduced them to the public.
A jury, consisting of stylist Rossana Lima, actor Horace Cohen, RTL presenter Dennis Weening and Dutchypuppy ambassador Sebastiaan Labrie, chose Demi as the winner.
Demi practices the sled dog sport and has already covered more than 15,000 kilometers in the snow. According to her owner, it is thanks to Demi that his team is making great progress. "She has walked as a guide dog all seasons and we hope we can have a lot of fun with her."
Furthermore, Demi is just a very sweet dog who feels at home everywhere and adapts very easily. She is very submissive and is therefore at the bottom of her rank, according to her proud boss.
