Buck the Malamute - Gentle-natured Yukon canine featured in the 13-part one-hour action adventure series CALL OF THE WILD/ANI/2000-01.

Buck the Malumute and Miles - CALL OF THE WILD

Stolen from San Francisco and transported to the Yukon to become a sled Dog, Buck battled the frozen frontiers of the North until he becomes the property of 15-year-old Miles Challenger (Shane Meier), the son of Adoley (Rachel Hayward) who after the death of her husband, married John Thornton (Nick Mancuso).

Newly adopted by the Thornton's family, Buck encounters friends and foe alike in the Yukon territory of 1898.

The dog playing the role of Buck on the TV series is called Kavic, a four-year-old, 140-pound Alaskan Malamute/timber wolf mix owned and trained by Steve Woodley.

Born in Oregon, Kavic appeared in such TV shows as SENTINEL, STARGATE, DEAD MAN'S GUN, FIRST WAVE and SLEEPWALKERS.

Buck & Miles - CALL OF THE WILD

TRIVIA NOTE: The TV series was inspired by Jack London’s novel "Call of the Wild" about Buck, a huge four-year-old Scottish Shepherd-Saint Bernard cross-breed who lived a life of ease at Judge Miller's Santa Clara Valley estate until one night he was stolen by Manuel, the estate's Gardner and sold to the Alaska gold rush fields as a pack animal.
