CYDER

age: 10 years
gender: male
position: leader
race miles: 8,000

Cyder is a stoic dog. He takes his role as a leader very seriously and when the snow gets deep, he really excels. He is very powerful, determined and nothing short of a bulldozer when it comes to breaking trail. When not on the trail, he has a secret passion for playing fetch.
