Mixtus

Mixtus (m)

Born: 8/7/2010 Bumblebee Litter

From the time he was a pup Mixtus loved being a lead dog. When he ran free next to the team he would stuff himself in between the leaders and try to keep up. He is turning into a very nice lead dog as an adult and we are expecting great things from him on winter patrols. He is huge and gangly (in part because he is a picky eater and the ravens and magpies have learned to scare him away from his own kibble!). Mixtus thinks he is a tough dog, but deep down he is a big teddy bear and just wants lots of love and attention from everyone he meets.

Latin name: Bombus Mixtus
