Zala hails from Alaska, where she lived and raced with her friends Ayn and Caramel. Zala is known for having cute little white socks on her paws, and for her beautiful singing voice! She loves to share her thoughts and opinions by howling. Outside, she plays with her kennel mates Ayn and Caramel, all three of whom love attention from their people!
Before coming to Cornell, Zala and her team were mid-distance runners. Zala was able to lead when need be, but preferred to be a team dog. She generally ran 26 mile races and was registered in the open class. Along with Ayn and Caramel, she helped her musher train new puppies to be sled dogs this past year.
