puppy in an Alaskan sled-dog litter gets sold to a family as a
pet. After the dog is seriously injured, the family veterinarian
recommends euthanasia, she believes the dog may never walk again.
But Foxy recovers and not only learns to walk again, but she also
learns to run, and to pull a sled. With her best friend Kelly, she
goes on to successfully race and later compete in the Junior World Championship
Sled Dog Race in Anchorage.
