Curly (a dog) Timeline and Summary

  • Curly, a "good-natured Newfoundland," is one of the dogs taken to Alaska by François and Perrault (along with Buck).
  • Curly gets her face ripped open by a large husky she tries to be friends to with.
  • Then she dies as many other huskies surround her and tear her to pieces.
