ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A dog belonging to an Iditarod rookie has run away from its handler in Anchorage.

KTVA reports (https://is.gd/8y9XLW) the 3-year-old Husky named Sarabi ran away Saturday. Musher Laura Allaway is asking people to keep an eye out for the dog, which was being kept in Anchorage until she arrives from Fairbanks.

The dog has perked ears, white coloring on her feet that resembles socks and an Iditarod tag.

Allaway says Sarabi is shy around new people and shouldn’t be chased.

Another dog got loose from its handler after the ceremonial start of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Anchorage on March 7 and was killed by a car.

Race officials say two dogs on the team of four-time champion Lance Mackey died during this year’s thousand-mile race across Alaska.
