Breed: Alaskan Husky
Born: 2006 – Togo, Minnesota
This is a really special dog to us. Merlin was the main man in our race team our first few seasons in North America. He was just a star. A phenomenal distance leader that just took control and delivered. Merlin has run numerous distance races across the lower 48 and in Alaska, including Iditarod twice. A beautiful blue eyed Alaskan Husky with a very loving attitude and endless drive when in harness. Merlin was the start of our team in North America and has been brought back to NZ to once again be the backbone of our adventures.
