Balto got more trust and confidence in his son, Kodi when Jenna sang to him you don't have to be a hero. The day that they had to do a race between dogs vs. machine Balto won that race and Kodi said"Thanks dad for saving our jobs." and Kodi nuzzles his dad which of course is Balto. When Balto finds out that the machine got low battery and crashed on land with Boris inside of it in the race he goes to rescue it.Balto 1, 2, and 3 are all great movies,but my favorite characters in all of the movies are Balto, Jenna, Aleu, and Kodi. I wish they would make a Balto 4 about Balto, Jenna, Aleu, and Kodi.

do you think that balto did a good job i do but this is the true story that there was more than 1 sleds so they passed the mediciene to each sled but on the last sled which was took to the doctor the lead dog was balto. You can see a stature of him in New York central park as from the begining of the movie. Just like star the husky at the end he says you should build a stature of him, and that is what they did.

Idon't know but I think the idea of steel the bad husky and jenna the gentle husky might of been really because they could of been on the sled,
