Laura and I talked to Kate from Tri County Humane Society this morning about this week's adoptable pet. Kate works with a lot of dogs at the shelter and claims she never plays favorites when it come to the dogs there. But, she said if she were to play favorites it would be this fine specimen of a dog, Kona.

Say hello to Kona! This handsome pup came to TCHS as a transfer from another facility, so not much is known of his history. Kona was adopted and then returned a few months later due to his separation anxiety. He is currently on medication to help manage this separation anxiety. His new family will need to be prepared to follow up with their vet (and possibly a trainer to help build his confidence) for continued care. Kona may need a home where his owners are around often.

Ask a staff member for more information about separation anxiety. Kona has a high prey drive and cannot go to a home with cats or other small animals. Kona has shown some distaste for other dogs in the shelter setting so it is recommended he be the only dog in the house. He has not had the chance to meet young children.

Kona LOVES to be outside. He would love to have a fenced in yard where he has plenty of room to run around and play as he pleases. He would benefit from daily exercise; regular walks are recommended to keep this boy in good shape! Kona knows basic commands such as "sit", "stay", "leave it", and "lay down".

This smart boy is eager to learn more. Kona loves to play fetch and specifically enjoys Kong balls! Kona enjoys playing tug-o-war as well. He should be given plenty of durable toys to keep him busy and active (durable toys are available in our TCHS Re-Tail Shoppe!).

Kate recommends feeding a high quality kibble with meat as the first ingredient to ensure his health going into the future. Is house broken but would do best on a consistent schedule in his new home to set him up for success.  He currently weighs 72 pounds.
