These are the 2017 Iditarod dog sled race champions. These dogs are not in anyone’s mind what they think are sled dogs. Most of these dogs are mutts and come from all areas of the dog family. Beautiful beasts that only want to run. These dogs are always chained and never are loose. If they get loose, they will start running in some direction and won’t stop until then drop. When I lived in Alaska, I would frequently see on the highway a sled dog that got free and was running towards or away from something. They are not good pets they are only good for running.
