Bonus: A City Dog Question

Q: What is the name of the famous dog statue in New York City’s Central Park?

A: Balto Statue! 

If you’ve ever wandered around Central Park, you’ve probably come across an adorable life-size bronze statue of a dog. Who is that dog, and what’s the story behind the statue?

That dog is Balto, an Alaskan sled dog. In 1925, Alaska was hit with a terrible outbreak of diphtheria. The city of Nome suddenly needed a lot of medication — but there was a massive blizzard! Enter: Balto and his fellow sled dogs. Heroic teams of mushers and sled dogs raced 674 miles through the blizzard to deliver life-saving medicines. Balto was one of the lead dogs!

That same year, the city commissioned a famous Brooklyn sculptor named Frederick George Richard Roth to build a statue in Balto’s honor. It’s stood in Central Park ever since. Next time you’re there, take a look! You’ll find Balto near the Tisch Children’s Zoo.
