Hi! My name is Black Bear, and I am a retired sled dog. I was born in Eagle, Alaska and raised by Bush Alaska Expeditions. I was a lead dog in the 2009 Yukon Quest,
so I have a passion for running...especially in the snow!
When I'm not running or sleeping, I go around and give presentations to teach children and adults what it's like to be a sled dog. I have some people who come along to help me interpret and carry things. They also help me find good homes for my sled dog friends when they retire. Here is more information about what they do:
Meet some of my retired sled dog friends. Some are available for adoption!
Meet and learn about sled dogs at this gathering and demonstration of working dogs.
Sled dog stories and activities at the Barnes & Noble tent with author, Denise Lawson, and her retired sled dogs from Alaska.
