Name: Piston 

Gender: Male 

Birth Year: 2008


Piston is a big goofball that came to us from Michigan along with Guru, Axel, Trapper, Maggie, and Duke. He is one of our biggest dogs, and like all the other big guys, he is a super silly and friendly. He is always in the mood to play and jump around, especially outside where he hangs out with Tater and Totter. Piston is also doing pretty well on the treadmill! 


Before joining the Vaika team, Piston was a mid distance sled dog. He and his team competed in races that spanned between 40 and 300 miles! For training they usually did 8 to 10 mile runs. Piston actually competed in the Iditarod two years before moving to Cornell, which is a race held in Alaska that spans over 1,000 miles! 

Piston's boarding costs are 10$/day. We will keep supporting Piston “till all the seas gang dry, and the rocks melt with the sun”, but you can also help. Adopt Piston by subscribing to donate 5$ a month and you will receive monthly news on his
