If you ever wanted a dog that resembled a polar bear, Tonya is the perfect dog for you. With her off white coat, large size, and short tail she is a true polar bear look-a-like. Tonya has a heart for adventure and exploring. She loves hiking and anything involving water. When at home Tonya truly enjoys being around people and cuddling. She'll happily share her bed and blankets for mid-day nap whenever you want.
Tonya enjoys making new friends, both human and canine. Where Tonya does love walks, hiking, and supervised play dates with other dogs, she does need to be an only dog in her home due to her resource guarding behavior from other dogs, but she'll make sure she gives you plenty of love in return.
Tonya loves to learn to do new things and is an expert at solving food puzzles and giving five. She is a sleepover favorite at the sanctuary and does well in a home environment; she even works 2 days a week as an office dog in our accounting department! If you are looking for a new four-legged best friend who will happily accompany you anywhere, Tonya is the dog for you.
