Meet Balto

Hi, I’m Balto!

Named after the famous hero sled dog from the 1920’s, I may not bring you medical supplies but I can deliver lots of love. One look into my piercing blue eyes and you’ll want to meet me.

I am quiet and shy, so I’ll just need a little extra patience and time. I walk well leash and don’t pull too much (unlike my sled dog namesake). I also am very calm and well-behaved while riding in a car. Ear scratches are one of my favorite things!

I am a little nervous around men but I don’t show any aggression. If you’re male and willing to sit quietly next to me, I will start to get curious and some over for sniffs. If you move slowly, I’ll even let you pet me. It may take a few visits for me to warm up but I promise you once I trust you, I love with all my heart. I’ll get excited to see you and will do a happy dance. I love to sit right next to you so we can watch the world together. I also LOVE hugs and because of all my fluff, my hugs are by far the best.

I may be shy but if you’re willing to take the time, I know I’ll could be a great addition to your family. Because I’m a bit timid I’d do best in a home with older children. Submit an application today so we can meet and we can learn more about each other!

I am looking for a family that understands I am very shy and will work with me.
