We support canine health and health screens on our Chinooks.
Look for Intervale Chinooks listed on the OFA and CHIC canine health websites.
We have participated in University of Missouri, Iowa State, NIH, and Van Andel Institute genetic studies on the Chinook.

The Riverstone Boys
Riverstone Jackson,Tonka, and Basil are three intact males from the Intervale Brown-eyed Girl (Emma) and Lighthouse Point Sur (Booker) litter of 2010. Basil lives in Ohio at Rolling Oak Chinooks and is genotyped for coat color and length, Jackson lives in New York, and Tonka in New Jersey. OFA health ratings can be found on the OFA website.
Gus: Intervale Tuckerman (Gus) is out of our Mountain Laurel Kali by Benjamin's Tekoa from their litter of 1998 and our first litter at Intervale. Gus is brother to Ursa and Crystal and is the only male from this litter - he is a special guy! Gus is a male version of his dam Kali and we hope to breed Gus back into the Intervale line in 2017. Gus is stored at Synbiotics and he is OFA Good, CERF Normal, IBD and seizure free, Longevity: 13 yr 9 mo.
You can find Intervale Chinook pedigrees on www.chinookhealth.org by searching "Intervale" plus the dog's name.
Our breedings have focused on purebred Chinook pedigree diversity, improved health and longevity, and the best of breed temperament. By genotyping our Chinooks' coat color and coat length, we can help determine these in the offspring from our breedings. Many of our dogs are also DNA profiled at Genoscoper. If you think one of our boys or their siblings may be a match for your Chinook, or if one of your boys is a match for our girls, please call or email Chinooks@intervalechinooks.net
INTERVALE GUS TUCKERMAN
(Mountain Laurel Mackenzie
x Ford's Mackenzie)
Intervale Chinooks: We have been selectively breeding purebred Chinooks under the Intervale prefix since 1998, producing a litter every few years. Our early Chinook breedings have provided unique purebred pedigree diversity going back in just three to five generations to the historic 1981 Sukee Kennel-Perry Greene Kennel modern breed founders.
Unlike other Chinook pedigrees, our original breedings have excluded those better known popular sires. We have had pedigrees that go four and five generations back without repeating ancestors and we have produced great breed type, temperament, working ability, health and longevity. The life span of pups from our Kali x Toes litter: Prizy-13, Frankie,Crystal, Honey, Gus-14, Piper and Kat-15, and Ursa was 17 years and two months when she left us.
People say our Chinooks bear our Intervale Kennel's stamp in type, expression and drive. "Big and Red"! Our Chinooks tend toward plush red-tawny coats (thank you Benjamin's Tekoa!), exuberance (thank you Mountain Laurel Kali!), and of course, they love to pull. We've been told "All your Chinooks look alike" and this is what we like to hear!

Kody: Kody (Intervale Ursa Major) is a male out of the 2003 litter of Intervale Imp Face (Ursa) by Howlin' Hills Diamond n'th Ruff (Dozer). Semen is frozen. Kody looks a lot like his maternal great-grand sire Ford's Mackenzie. Kody is friendly, intelligent, high drive and athletic with a diverse pedigree. He should be a good breeder's choice for homes looking for a performance Chinook. Kody is about 70 lbs and 25 inches tall and he has been genotyped for coat color and coat length. He is OFA Good and CERF Normal. We had passing hip scores for Kody and all littermates: 6 OFA Goods and 2 Fairs. Kody's brother Tug sired two OFA excellents.
Zeb: Forever Greene Zebulon is a male out of Lighthouse Mystic Seaport (Doonerak) by Intervale Rock the Boat (Tug) and whelped at Forever Greene Chinooks in Vermont. Zeb is a really big Chinook boy - he is around 95 lbs and 26 inches tall. Zeb is OFA Good, CERF and elbows normal, and Zeb is CHIC certified. Hip results reported in his litter are very good: 2 OFA Excellent, 5 OFA Good, 1 OFA Fair and one OFA Mild. Zeb has been genotyped for coat color and coat length at VetGen and profiled with Genoscoper. He lives in Connecticut and in New Hampshire. A breedable brother, Forever Greene Yuch'ann Gold (Riggs) lives in PA. If you are looking to add some size, pulling power and genetic diversity to your line, Zeb is a great choice.
