Nothing black about this Friday, according to Balto. As you’d expect with his genetic make-up, this three-year-old Husky/Malamute mix boy loves the cold weather and playing outside with his precious blue dolphin squeaky toy. Balto was a surrender due to financial hardship; he has been with older kids and loved playing with them for hours. Balto is a solid 61 lbs. but walks well on a leash, socializing with people he meets along the way. He has been neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped. Dog adoption fee is $150.
