This is Laura, a 5-year-old sled dog participating in this year’s Iditarod.
However, Laura is dealing with more challenges than most in Alaska’s famous race, KTUU reported.
Musher Kelly Maixner, who is currently racing in his fifth Iditarod attempt, owns Laura.
About two years ago, he began to notice the pup's eyes were becoming cloudy, he told KTUU.
A vet diagnosed Laura with a disease called pannus, which causes blindness. However, Laura didn't let the disease slow her down.
