Pet Adoption of the Week – Balto

Each week The Bench News publishes profiles of pets waiting for adoption from area shelters and humane societies. To find out about adopting the profiled pets call the organizations below. To reach our animal reporter, contact daniela@benchnews.ca.

Lincoln County Humane Society: Balto

Balto from LCHS

Breed: German Shepherd, Male – 7 years old

Balto is going to make a family very happy. He is such a sweet and fun dog to hang out with. He loves to roll around in the snow and to lean into you to get some pets. 

Balto’s perfect home has a fully fenced yard (at least 5 ft), no children under 8 years old, no other male dogs, and no cats. 

He would do best with a female dog to live with and adopters who go slow with introductions to strange dogs (no dog parks).

All adoptable dogs have been given a behavioral test and our staff will be happy to explain the testing and discuss the results with potential adopters during the initial meeting with the dog you are interested in.

Interested in adopting Balto? Please call the shelter directly to schedule an appointment. 905-682-0767
