Bato is one of the biggest up-and-coming stars in the Kennel. A grandkid of Silver, he brings more enthusiasm to the team than any other dog in the Kennel. He ran on a puppy team with my handler as a Yearling and showed he had what it takes to go 1,000 miles, and in 2015 as a two-year-old, he shined on my winning Yukon Quest team. Always ready to go, Bato is the biggest cheerleader on the team. Barking and banging the harness is what he loves to do and his energy is contagious in the team. Even though he is one of the smaller dogs, he is one of the most confident and will not be pushed around by anybody. He and his sibling Chica are part of a Mexican themed litter, and he often reminds me of a Mexican gangster because of his huge personality. Bato had another strong showing in 2017 and also became a dad! A breeding with Sound has created 4 amazing pups that are already showing they have their dads’ energy. I am extremely excited to have him back in 2018 and to be passing his strong genetics on to future superstars.
