This is Balto, one of Lulu's 10 puppies that were all saved from a SD Reservation. The puppies are good with other dogs, cats, and kids. All dogs and puppies require supervision and training.
Balto was adopted as a puppy and returned as an adult due to family changes.
Balto is very observant with his beautiful blue eyes! Always on the lookout for toys and treats! He is also a sweet cuddle bug, would love to be cuddled on the couch as much as possible. He walks beautifully on leash, knows sit, down and shake. We are learning more about him and will continue to update as we get to know him in his adult life. He gets along great with other dogs and did not react to the cats when we walked by at an event.
He likes to hoard his stuffies under his chest like a dragon when he is working on a tough-chewer toy. And he likes to sit on the porch and watch the neighborhood while I have my coffee in the morning or a beverage in the evening. He really is such a good boy! He just needs more space to run at will and a busier home. He's got a challenging stubborn streak, but its much less apparent when he has the ability to roam as he likes. Ive seen him interact with kids and dogs of all sizes and ages in the setting of a busy family home with open access to a fenced-in yard. Hes like a different person, so much happier. I thought we were active people, but not in his view, apparently!
Note: he plays very well with dogs but is so excitedly interested in cats that it freaks them out. If there's a cat in a home that already has a dog, it'd be fine, but he'd probably unintentionally terrorize a cat that's new to dogs with his exuberance.
