"Meet Kona; a big marshmallow in a brindle suit. If you are looking for a big goofy boy, this is your dog. He didn't have the best start in life. He was owned by some people that left him in a bad situation & he got beat up pretty badly by some other dogs.
As a result, he has a steel plate and screws in his right front leg. He has completely healed from that and is looking for a permanent place to call home.
Because he was beaten up so badly by dogs, he doesn't trust some of them (usually larger males) and should probably be in a home where he is the only dog. And being the big goofy boy he is, he will chase a cat if they run.
He has completed level one obedience and has been working with a canine behaviourist for a year now getting his issues with other dogs resolved. His trainer described him as playful and energetic with a silly side.
He likes to fetch, loves the water, and loves being cuddled.
But, being in foster care for a year is not fair to him, he needs a home where he will have somebody that will continue providing him with love, guidance & structure.
If you think you can provide him with a home for the rest of his natural life, please don't overlook this dog. He is a gem."
