Hi, my name is Korine Falk(I also go by Kory). I live in Jackson, New Jersey.
I attended college and I am now Certified by the state of NJ to work in the field as an Animal Control officer & Animal Cruelty investigator, However I have had to put that goal aside right now due to taking care of my father for the past 2 years. He had a bad accident leaving him mentally and physically disabled. In my spare time outside of the dog world, I enjoy fishing, crabbing, camping, hiking, anything that involves being outside in nature. I am very open minded & always willing to help when needed. I first found out about the Alaskan Klee Kai in 2007. I was reading about Siberian Huskies on the internet and somehow stumbled upon a dog that just looked way too small to be a Siberian. I clicked the link and immediately fell in love.
I was in shock when I actually saw an AKK in person for the first time in 2009. I was at our local dog beach with 2 of my dogs. My Jaw dropped and like a little kid in a candy store, I was overwhelmed with excitement. I made it a goal of mine to have my very own and once I did, my goal quickly became a dream to be a part of something much more; to show in conformation, better the breed, and be more involved with the Alaskan Klee Kai community. When I saw the Klee Kai at the dog beach, the owners were a little surprised that I knew exactly what type of dog they had, and well, now I understand why they were surprised. I can’t tell you how many times Stark, my Klee Kai, has been called a Husky puppy (Lol!) – I am sure other Klee Kai owners can easily relate.
I personally train my dogs and help others with training on the side, as well as pet sitting. I have a wonderful boyfriend who shares the same passion as I do for animals & helps with the care of my father. (Anyone who accepts living with all the madness that goes on here and still feels right at home is a keeper in my opinion lol!). The Alaskan Klee Kai is not just another dog to me. They are incredible, loving, and intelligent companions. Stark from Shalimar Acres, has been nothing but a perfect member of our little family. I own 3 other dogs in addition to Stark. (Siberian Husky, German Shepherd, and Toy Fox Terrier). I am looking forward to adding another Klee Kai into our “pack”.
