Adopt Butterball!

Contributed by Tracy Smith, Animal Care Dispatcher
Mat-Su Animal Care & Regulation

Butterball is a good looking sled dog with a ton of energy. He has always been an outside dog and so is not house trained.

He doesn’t have a history of destructive habits or escaping. Butterball is a super high energy dog who is harness trained. He is used to and will need a lot of exercise and would be great for someone looking to train a dog for skijoring.

He is used to being kenneled, not used to car rides, and has not shown food aggression. Butterball is good with other dogs and kids. He is easy going, friendly, affectionate, confident and tolerant. This good looking, happy dog needs an active home to call his own.
