  2. I am a Rough Coated Collie and probably one of the most well-known acting dogs. In my movies I was extremely dedicated to my family and occasionally helped rescue them from dire situations. I was such a star because of my intelligence and beauty. Who am I?

  6. I am a Siberian Husky who helped carry cases of medicine from Anchorage to Nome. We made our leg of the trip in the dead of the night through an Alaskan winter, traveling further than we were intended in order to help save those diagnosed with diptheria. Because of my bravery and athleticism, they created the Iditarod and put a statue of me in Central Park. Who am I?

  8. I’m a lovable giant who escaped dog nappers in a popular 1990s movie and was adopted by a family who spent much of the movie trying to clean up after my antics. I was named after a composer who’s tune I howled to during one of the kid’s piano practice. Who am I?
