Mystery Solved

    What is it you want to know?

    Balto dog food was made by the same company that made Puss n Boots cat food -- Balto Dog & Cat Food New England Grocery, Providence Puss'n Boots Cat Food First National Warehouse, Providence Consolidated By-Products Co., Philadelphia -- link:

    The product was named for a real dog -- Balto - (1919 – March 14 1933) was a Siberian Husky sled dog who led his team on the final leg of the 1925 serum run to Nome --

    The Balto jar is listed in the fruit jar price guide (redbook #10) as beeing worth $15-20 --

    Find Balto items on ebay -- currently no jars --
