Now, Hal, Mercedes and Charles are the teams’ new owners. They are inexperienced and have an excessive load. The dogs cannot pull the sled so they unload half of the possessions. To pull the rest of the items the owners buy six more dogs. However, the new dogs slow down the team and after a while of running, and shortage of food, the dogs collapse. Restless, Hal beats Buck mercilessly, until John Thornton cuts his harness and rescues him.
