1.5 yr old Male Siberian Husky

Balto came to us from Clovis, NM when he was about 8 months old, along with his sister Zia, with whom he had spent his entire life. They were almost exclusively outside and had limited human interaction and when they made their way to us, and Balto was definitely on the timid side. Thankfully in the last 7+ months (YES over half a year! Half his lives!) the Balto has been in foster care, he has come so incredibly far out of his shell! Because he was so extremely timid at first, we believed him to be bonded to Zia – she was definitely the more independent of the pair and we could see that she would be just fine without Balto. He seemed to struggle a lot more without her though. Their foster put in a ton of work and now, as a result, Balto has turned into a totally different dog with a ton of confidence who actually does BETTER on his own (with other dogs still) without Zia. Because she is so over-bearing, he doesn’t really get to shine unless he is with other, different dogs. As a result of all of this work and all of these behavior changes, we are no longer listing them as a bonded pair, and Balto is ready to find his own home!

For a husky, he is a sweet boy and definitely more on the mild-tempered side. He loves going on neighborhood jogs and hiking adventures with his foster. As a very young boy, he still has some of your typical husky mischievous tendencies and goofy personality traits, and still needs an owner committed to meeting his exercise requirements.

Balto could do okay with a dog-savvy cat, but we would want to start with an introduction to make sure everyone gets along. He hasn’t spent a ton of time around kids, but we do think he could do ok with children with proper introductions.

We will do meet and greets for any potential qualified applicants to ensure everyone is comfortable!

Please fill out an application if you would like to meet Balto!
