Caleb Ross was an actor from New Zealand who pulled up stakes and relocated to Toronto, Canada when he fell in love. However, the relationship took a turn for the worst, and looking for a new adventure, Ross headed to the small Manitoba town of Churchill, where he took what he expected to be a temporary job with one Brian Ladoon helping care for a rare breed of dog, the Quimmiq. One of the very few breeds of dogs indigenous to Canada, the Quimmiq is an Eskimo dog that was used to pull dogsleds and can thrive in bitterly cold temperatures. In the 1970s, the Quimmiq was close to extinction, but Ladoon has dedicated his life to keep them alive, helping to breed the dogs and see that they're cared for properly. Three years after he signed on to help with the dogs, Ross is still in Churchill, working full time beside Ladoon in an ongoing crusade to keep the Eskimo dogs alive. Filmmaker Costa Botes offers a look into the lives of Ross and Ladoon, their demanding daily routine, and the animals they love in the documentary The Last Dogs Of Winter. The film was an official selection at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
