Hello, Big World! My name is Balto (my foster family calls me Mr. B and frankly, I like it). I’m approximately nine years old and all boy! I had a rough time until GML pulled me from the shelter and gave me some much needed medical attention. Just so you know, I’m a very strong and vibrant boy! I was emaciated and so down in the dumps I just didn’t know which way to turn. But if you could see me now!! I’m gaining weight, I’m healthy, and vibrant and love life to the max. I weigh 80 pounds now - woohoo - and I’m just getting started so I’m gonna be a big boy when I’m all filled out. I’m a happy boy and love hanging out with my foster family. Who would have ever thought I’d have such happy eyes that when you look into them you can see my soul?? I’m calm, I don’t jump, I’m learning all about how to behave in a house (I don’t get on the furniture), and my foster mom is teaching me to sit before she puts my food bowl down. I love watching her cook, and I’m such a good companion. I have a gentle spirit with a charming personality that everyone loves - toddlers, young children, men, women, you name it - I love them all. Oh, ahem, I have an “unhealthy interest” in cats, so it’s best that I’m not around those critters, but bring on the dogs! Take me on a car ride and you won’t hear a peep out of me! I love riding in the car! Don’t let my age fool you. When I see a squirrel in the trees or on the rooftop, I can out run my foster sister dog, and let me tell you, she’s fast! Now that you know I’m a good catch because I’m so handsome and well behaved let me tell you about a teeny tiny issue that I have with my bladder. It doesn’t bother me at all, but it does require that I wear a diaper. (My foster mom tells me how handsome and cute I look with my diaper wrap on!!). Also, my bladder needs to be manually expressed several times a day. That’s it folks! Other than that, I’m your man. show less
