Nome's real name is Arctic Soul Navarro, but we call him Nome according to a city in Alaska. In addition, Nome knows the following nicknames: Nomppu, Pomppu, Po-po-poo and Huomaamaton koira (Imperceptible Dog). Nomppu comes from Nome. Pomppu means bounce. He is called Pomppu, because he bounces only while waiting for food. Normally we wake Nome by saying Po-poo-poo. The Imperceptible Dog follows from Nome's manner to press against a man, when Nome sleeps.

The male Nome is born on 2000-10-25. His weight is 22 kg and he is 58 cm at the withers. Pomppu's coefficient of inbreeding is 0.65 % according to six generations. More information of Nome's coefficient of inbreeding and ancestor loss coefficient is given here.

Nome is eager in harness. He can run in every place. Nomppu has led the team alone, too. Nome moves well.

Nowadays the old Nome trains in our oldies team. Pomppu developed as a sled dog all the time being at his best in the age of eight years. After that his speed begun weaken. Nome has never had any injuries.

Nome is a pack dog. When things go well in our pack, Pomppu is happy. He is even happy, if other dogs are spoiled. When Nome is noticed, he is the happiest dog in the world. Pomppu is the best indoor dog of our huskies. Nome has not a strong natural game drive. It is a pity that Luna taught him in this topic.

Sitting is the basic trick of Nome. He knows that by sitting the situation is under control. Often this is true, but sitting for example in the middle of aisle in a rush bus is not always a good idea. In this situation Pomppu thinks that he doesn't do anything wrong. So it is very difficult to get him move out of other passengers' way.

When the sauna stove is warmed with firewood, Pomppu loves sauna. He doesn't like an electric sauna stove and is not interested in this kind of sauna.

Because Nome likes a lot of agility, he still competes in this sport.

Nome has got the following results:

Nome has passed the Kiva dog citizen test. This test measures the suitability of a dog in society.

Nome's appetite is enormous. He seems suck food without chewing it.

Nome eyes are checked healthy. Because Nome had testicle cancer, he was neutered in the year 2011.
