What are the names of the dogs in Snow Dogs?

What is the film Snow Dogs all about?

Snow dogs is a 2002 American adventure comedy film by Brian Levant that stars Cuba Gooding Jr. and James Coburn. It was released on January 18th of 2002 and was inspired by the book Winterdance by Gary Paulsen. 

Dr. Ted Brooks is a celebrity dentist in Miami, Florida. Almost every bus in Miami has an advertisement of Ted Brooks’ dental practice with his picture in it. A letter from Alaska shocks Ted because the letter declares that he is the only heir of Lucy Watkins, who lives in the backwoods village of Tolketna. Amelia, Ted’s mother, reveals that Ted is adopted and Lucy was his biological mother. 

Ted travels to Tolketna to receive his inheritance from his biological mother. He receives seven Siberian Huskies and a Border Collie, whose names are  Diesel, Mack, Sniff, Yodel, Scooper, Duchess, Demon, and Nana, respectively. 

Ted is dumbfounded when he is met by blizzards, thin ice, foxes, skunks, grizzly bears, an old mountain man, Thunder Jack Johnson, and the resistant lead dog, Demon. All of these happen two weeks away from the Arctic Challenge Sled Dog race. 

In between all of this, Ted tries to find out why he was adopted and who his biological father was. He meets a bar owner named Barb who happens to be a close friend of his mother, Lucy. Barb helps Ted deal with the dogs and both of them do all kinds of things with each other and end up falling in love. Thunder Jack, at several times, tries to buy the dogs, including and especially lead dog Demon. Barb reveals to Ted that his biological father is Thunder Jack but Thunder Jack denies these claims. 

Ted loses consciousness while practicing sledding and Thunder Jack rescues him and takes him to a cave. This is where Jack offers to reveal the truth in exchange for the dogs and Ted agrees. 

Jack tells Ted that Lucy hid from a storm in the cave they are in during an Arctic challenge, which was also the time Ted was conceived. Jack woke up and never saw Lucy again. 

Ted lets Thunder Jack have all the dogs and returns to Miami. Jack sets Demon as the lead dog of his team for the Arctic Challenge. The race begins and Jack decides to press on in the middle of a fierce storm. 

When Ted has returned to Miami, he recounts the experiences to his mother who, in an accident, breaks the frame with a picture of Lucy and Demon. Inside the frame is a snapshot of Lucy and Jack with him as a baby. He is mad that Jack lied to him and rushed back to Alaska. He is met with a news that Jack has gone missing and the weather is bad for him to search for Thunder Jack. 

Ted then decides that he should search for Jack himself and takes Nana as lead dog. Amelia arrives in Alaska and meets Barb but Ted is, at that moment, out on the trail in search for his biological father. 

Ted is able to locate Jack in the old cave and Jack admits that he and Lucy had been together at the hospital when Ted was born. He tells Ted that he loved Lucy so much but they had agreed that neither one of them were ready to be parents to Ted. Ted also discovers that the reason for Demon’s bad temper is because it has a rotten tooth. 

The tooth is pulled out and Demon has become friendlier than ever. When they journeyed back to Tolketna, the sled nearly goes over a cliff into a river but thanks to the dogs, this is pulled back up. Ted brings Thunder Jack across the finish line and introduces his father to Amelia. Ted and Jack share the Arctic Flame trophy which is a trophy for whoever comes in last. 

Ted moved his dental practice to Tolketna, and eventually married Barb. Barb is pregnant, and Nana and Demon have four puppies. In Miami, Ted’s cousin, Rupert becomes a dentist and is now the celebrity dentist Ted used to be.
