Facts about Tonka

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 8577940

Tonka is an incredibly energetic girl who is very eager to please. While she can be excitable, she wants nothing more than attention from those she loves. She can be a little leery of strangers but once she trusts you she will win your heart with her giant ears and exuberant personality. Tonka knows basic commands and walks well on the leash once her initial excitement over the prospect of going for a walk diminishes. Her absolute favorite toy is a Jolly Ball Romp-and-roll which she can swing around for hours. Tonka would do well in an active home with structured training. She will require an adult only home where she can be the only four-legged member. 

For more information on Tonka, call or email us.

About Satchel's Last Resort

About Our Shelter...

At Satchel's Last Resort, we provide lifelong shelter to dogs deemed unadoptable, nurture and train borderline dogs, and offer temporary shelter to adoptable dogs whose owners can no longer care for them. We believe all dogs are created equal and deserve to live the life of a beloved pet.

Each dog that comes to Satchel’s has its own unique and personal history. We get to know each dog individually – his favorite toy, his favorite game, his favorite foods. The residents (dogs forever with Satchel's) and guests (adoptable dogs at Satchel's for a temporary stay) live in an airy shelter with spacious kennels, go for three romps or walks per day, and even take the occasional car ride to let their fur flap in the wind. Most important to us -- we keep our dogs safe from other residents and from humans who may want to harm them.

Trainers work with the dogs a few times a week to teach them that they can trust humans and other animals. We actively seek forever homes tailored to the needs of our adoptable dogs so that they can live the rest of their lives among a family of their own.

At Satchel’s Last Resort, we believe that by harnessing the unconditional love that the dogs in our sanctuary put forth everyday, the world becomes a brighter place for animals and people. Each and everyday we try to give a little of their love back – back to the dogs and back to our community.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are located off of Clark Road a couple of miles east of I-75 in Sarasota, FL. Call 941-924-5070 or send an e-mail to: comments@satchelslastresort.com in order to set up an appointment to come and meet our dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, up to to date on their vaccinations and micro chipped. The adoption fee is $95 for dogs and $125 for puppies. We ask that all members of the household come and meet the dog(s) you are interested in. Then if you are interested in adopting, you will fill out an *application. Once approved we will make arrangement for the adoption.
