Weight: 62 pounds
Musher: Mats Pettersson, Kiruna, Sweden
At 62 pounds, Uno weighs in on the larger side of this year’s crop of Iditarod dogs.
“He’s probably one of the biggest dogs in the race,” said musher Mats Pettersson, of Sweden. “He’s really strong, the one you want to have at the end of the race pulling the others through...just the power. A really cool guy.”
This is Uno’s first time in the Iditarod, but he’s a three-time finisher of Finnmarksløpet, Europe’s longest sled dog race, Pettersson said.
