In the heart of Alaska, buried deep in the jagged white north, there is a town called Nome. There, the sled dog was a very cherished mode of transportation and each year the people cheered on the fastest sled dog team. Balto would have given anything to be on a sled team but he was caught between two worlds being half dog and half wolf. He would also have given anything to be near the beautiful husky, Jenna, but neither seemed likely in a town that feared and hated him. When Jenna's keeper, a little girl named Rosy, falls sick along with so many other children in the town, the only way to save them is to send a sled team to retrieve a desperately needed supply of medicine from a town 600 miles away. Nome puts together a sled team of its fastest dogs with Steele, a husky who was as nasty as he was strong, as the lead dog. When the sled team disappears in the Alaskan wilderness, Balto may be Nome's only hope.

animated movie Balto © AmblinThe statue that the grandmother and little girl look for in the brief live-action portion of the movie is real, just as the story of Balto is based in reality. My sister took this picture on her trip to New York where the statue stands proudly in Central Park, a testament to a dog and his team that beat impossible odds to save the people of Nome.
