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 handsome males from the Intervale Brown-eyed Girl (Emma) and Lighthouse Point Sur (Booker) litter of 2010. As with our other Chinooks, 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. Gus is stored at Synbiotics and he is OFA Good, CERF Normal, IBD and seizure free and in OS. Longevity: 13 yr 9 mo.
You can find Intervale Chinook pedigrees on www.chinookhealth.org by searching "Intervale" plus the dog's name and on the OFA website by searching for Chinooks and Intervale.
Intervale may have males available for breeding, either natural or frozen so please get in touch if you are interested.
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 produced unique purebred pedigree diversity going back in just three to five generations to the historic 1981 Sukee Kennel-Perry Greene Kennel modern breed founders.
"Big and Red"! People say our Chinooks bear our Intervale Kennel's stamp in type, expression, movement and drive. 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!
This page is dedicated to some of the Chinook males who have influenced our line. and our hearts.
Note: 2022 -new studs and their photos coming soon!

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). 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. Kody is about 70 lbs and 25 inches tall and he has been genotyped for coat color and coat length and is in OS. 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. A really big Chinook boy, Zeb 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 was genotyped for coat color and coat length at VetGen and profiled with Genoscoper. Zeb's brother, Forever Greene Yuch'ann Gold (Riggs) shows a nice black mask and sired a litter of 12 pups in 2012.
Otie: UKC CH Intervale Coyote RE, BN, OAP, OJP, CGC: Otie is old style Chinook and the only offspring and a male from the 2005 breeding between Intervale Crystal Cascade and Saghalie's Kaniksis Rainfall (Rainy) making this Rainy's only breeding to a purebred Chinook. Otie's OFA Fair and his parents are OFA Good. Otie has a broad skull, short, wide muzzle, well developed cheek muscles, a stocky, muscular body and weighs 75 lbs at 25 inches tall. He is tawny-red with an undercoat that is thick and plush.
Otie is confident, smart and has worked in obedience and agility. He earned his Rally Novice, Advanced, and Excellent titles in 9 trials, has titled in agility and obedience and is a Canine Good Citizen. Otie bears a strong resemblance to his Winterset and Victor's ancestors, to his great granddam Mountain Laurel Kascha and further back to Perry Greene's dog Riki, (photos at the left). Otie sired a litter with Intervale Little Jazz in 2017 producing 7 awesome outgoing, friendly and affectionate pups and another litter of one pup, Fee in 2021.
