After the race, Dusty and everyone thanks him for saving their jobs but when Balto asked them to help Duke, they all reject. In the end, they would help him save him.

Jenna

Not much is known about their relationship, but she seems to know about Kodi being loyal to her.

Kirby, Ralph and Kodi

They are Dusty's friends (except Ralph) & they both are working together as partners and they all respect each other and they care very much about their jobs as delivering mail. They would be angry that Duke is gonna take their jobs away but they would want Balto's help as he was a sled dog once. After they participate in the race, they would end up winning but Balto was worried that something happened to Dukes and wanted to help him but much later they would have a discussing about Balto trying to save Dukes but all of them would disagree about it and much later, they would get angry at Kodi for joining his father's side but after they have a conflict, Kodi disbands from the group but they would help him save Duke along with his dad.
