Meet Buddy, one of our house pets! Well, we may have a lot of sled dogs but there’s always room for another furry friend. Buddy, believe it or not, actually found us. He wandered up to our house one day and has been a part of the family ever since. Buddy is an Alaskan Malamute. This breed was used historically here in Alaska to haul freight into the interior of the state. Due to their large size and their slow traveling speed, these dogs do not make race dogs. Buddy, actually, takes more pleasure in driving a dogsled than he does pulling one! Buddy is one of the stars of our Wild Ride Sled Dog Rodeo. He’s a great dog and we’re happy to say, he’s our dog of the week!
