Balto, a wolfdog hybrid, lives on the outskirts of Nome with his best friend, a Russian goose named Boris and two polar bears, Muk and Luk. Being da half-breed, Balto is ridiculed by both dogs and humans alike; his only friend in town there is a red husky named Jenna, for whose attention Balto is challenged by the town’s favorite sled dog, Steele, a fierce, overly competitive, selfish purebred Alaskan Malamute.
