Email Terry Wright
Terry is retired and living in Alaska with her husband Jim. When she isn't working with
her AKK Kai in scentwork and barn hunt, she enjoys social media, reading, needlepoint,
sewing and traveling.
Terry was introduced to the Alaskan Klee Kai in 1993. She found an article that featured Linda Spurlin and her kennel in Wasilla, Alaska with these amazing small adorable dogs. In August 1996, Terry and Jim adopted their first AKK, Crystal Nakit Alasco, and shortly after added Kortok to the family. Then, in 2001 they brought Taku into the family. Their love for the beautiful breed did not stop there as they added Kai to the family in 2018.
Terry and her husband joined AKKAOA in 1995. She has previously served on the AKKAOA BOD in various positions including the newsletter editor, a position that she held for 16 years. She was influential in creating the club’s first set of Bylaws, logo and then launching the club’s website. Over the years she was heavily involved in planning annual meetings, raffles, seminars, specialty events, conformation shows, and much more. Her passion for Alaskan Klee Kai activities have led her all over the country so she knows AKK owners in pretty much every state!
Terry’s newest adventure is being on the AKKCOA (Alaskan Klee Kai Club of America) board of
directors as the Membership Director and Newsletter Publisher. Terry is looking forward to working with the board of directors and the membership to bring bring the Alaskan Klee Kai to full AKC recognition!
