A Little Bit About Me…
A Volunteer Writes: This gorgeous boy is so dear–beyond dear. He’s lived sweetly with children, as we learned from his history, but it is no surprise being in his company. He is so kind, and so gentle, and so affectionate. (And boy oh boy does he appear house trained!) He did beautifully on his behavior exam as well, which is no surprise spending time with this love, who is as eager to please as he is to be loved and love in return. Kong is occasionally unsteady on his feet but such a sport about it; he just wants to hang with the people he’s hanging with, gently offering up kisses at all times. We are crazy about him, and know you will be too–please come meet him and get a Kong kiss!
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Date of Intake; 5-May-2018

For a New Family to Know;
Kong is a bit of a shy, independent dog, but he is also very friendly and laid back. His most recent owner said he really likes to lounge around but isn’t too clingy. He would sleep in the hall on his dog bed and be very quiet when the owner left for work. He was walked three times a day and never had an accident inside the home. He does not pull at all on the leash and walks nice and slowly. He will chew on a ball sometimes, but is not very interested by them. He was fed 2 heaping servings of dry Pedigree food per day. He enjoyed Milk Bone treats, as well. His nails were not trimmed, but he tolerated a bath and really enjoyed being brushed. He will bark when someone rings the doorbell. His most recent owner’s favorite thing about him is how quiet and laid back he is.
Upon intake, Kong had a very loose body and licked anyone who passed by. He was easy to collar and leash. He walked slowly due to the overgrown nails, but led easily from place to place.
