For 2017, we are delighted to welcome to our fold the fabulous talents of JD Puppy!

Traveling from the wind-swept streets of Chicago, this New York-bred pooch will cross the Atlantic to add some extra sparkle to our celebration of all things Japanese.

For 10 years, he participated in many dance contests and through this hobby, his passion for entertaining has slowly flourished. Stepping into a fuzzier set of shoes, he debuted his fancy footwork to the furry community at Anthrocon in 2008, three years after attending Anthrocon for the first time. Since then, he has attended many more conventions and this year will mark his first ever attendance to NordicFuzzCon!

So for NordicFuzzCon, you can be sure to bump both into his two most well known fursuits, JD aka. JD Puppy, with the signature floppy ears and red bandana around his neck, and Buddy the husky, who is eternally happy and uptempo and often wears a shirt with the text "Popufur".

His skills as an entertainer go beyond performance for pleasure, having utilised his ability as a gamer to an excellent cause: the charity Extra Life.

If fancy footwork does not whet your whistle, he has demonstrated talent wielding the electric brush. His galleries of charming artwork on FurAffinity, InkBunny, SoFurry and Weasyl will be sure to leave his visitors with a beaming smile.

We hope that you will enjoy every second of JD as much as he enjoys giving you a show. Whether you are coming for the full week, or even just for a day, you can be sure that NordicFuzzCon 2017 is sure to be extra-energetic with this friendly pooch in attendance!
