About Zenfro

The famous Five first malamutes born in New ZealandZenfro was founded by Mr Bruce Roberts on Christmas Eve 1993, with the birth of the "Famous Five", the first Alaskan malamute litter in New Zealand produced from frozen semen - hence the kennel name Zenfro - 'frozen' inverted! Bruce retired from Zenfro in 2003 and passed the legacy to us - Irene Bessem and Sonja Bright. Irene has been involved with Zenfro since the beginning and Sonja since early 2003.

Our malamutes are raised to be pets first and foremost and as such we place great emphasis on temperament. We strongly believe in soundness of "mind and body", breeding to standard with excellent type and movement.

We are located 20 minutes from Palmerston North in the North Island of New Zealand on a 12 acre rural property where we also run our pet boarding establishment, Creature Comforts Pet Lodge.

We hope you enjoy our website and please read more about the Zenfro History & Breeding Philosophy.
