Age: Adult
Color: Blue/Silver/Salt & Pepper

Prefers no dogs

What's exciting about life? Everything, if you ask Kong. Born in 2011, this exuberant dog packs a lot of personality in his short, squat body. He loves toys and being the center of people's attention. Kong gets along with other dogs just fine, so long as they can tolerate his exuberance and give him some space. He gets eye drops twice a day. Also, because of old injuries to his legs, he can only go for short walks. After a little exercise, he'd love to curl up on the couch or in his bed next to you.

Kong is part of our Single Pets* program! That means that he is eligible for a free flight home and waived adoption fee!

*Single pets do best as the only dog or cat in the home.
