Age: 4
Owner: MEREDITH MAPES
Musher currently running this dog: JOHANNA BADALICH
Team Position(s): PRETTY MUCH ANYWHERE. USUALLY HE’S IN WHEEL BECAUSE HE’S ONE OF THE BIGGER DOGS, BUT I ACTUALLY RAN HIM IN LEAD A LOT THIS PAST SEASON WITH HIS SISTER. THEY MAKE A REALLY GOOD PAIR.

What are his/her unique personality characteristics?

HE’S KIND OF WHAT I CALL MY GENTLE GIANT. HE’S THE BIGGEST DOG ON THE TEAM, BUT HE’S ONE OF THE SWEETEST. HE CAN BE KIND OF SHY AROUND SOME PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY AT FIRST, BUT FOR THE MOST PART, HE LOVES KIDS. HE’LL COME UP TO ANY LITTLE KID AND ASK FOR BUTT SCRATCHES AND EAR SCRATCHES.

What is that litter’s “theme” name and other siblings’ names from that litter?

HIS SISTER IS SARA JANE AND HIS OTHER SISTERS WERE DONNA AND MARTHA. Were they named after anybody in particular? THEY ARE. THEY’RE THE “DR. WHO” THEMED LITTER, SO IT’S THE DOCTOR AND SOME OF HIS COMPANIONS FROM THE TV SHOW.
