138107Balto is the dog and the guy was the musher.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gunnar_Kaasen_with_Balto.jpgBalto was a lead dog on a dog sled team, who went out in hard conditions in weather where airplanes where not able to fly, and it was the only way to save kids from a disease. Balto's team made in back within 20 hours. No one listed him as a hero, only as a toy. When Balto got old, he was put in a zoo to get human interaction, but he died, and he was stuffed and put in the Cleveland Natural Museum.
