LIKES: People, long walks, playing ball, snoozing on the couch.

DISLIKES: SQUIRRELS (they belong in the tree), running out of bully sticks, losing my tennis ball.

Let me introduce myself to you. My name is Balto and trust me, once you meet me, you won't even need to meet any other dogs! I am a Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Labrador mix from Arkansas. Besides my golden eyes and rainbow brown coat, I have a head that will fit perfectly in your lap!

I get along well with other dogs and I LOVE people. But squirrels are my sworn enemies! My goal in life is to keep them where they belong - up in a tree!

My two most favorite things are long walks and playing ball. Wait, make that three favorite things because I also like to sleep on the couch. Oh, I also love bully sticks. WAIT! I cannot forget to mention that I love to follow my family around the house! You get the idea - I just like everything!

I think I would be best with a family. Let me tell you why - there would be so many people to love and play with me! And, I do have lots of energy because I'm just a 55-pound puppy at heart. While a fenced yard would be great, it's not a deal breaker.

Are you looking for a buddy for life? Well, look no further - it's me!
