Kona is a beautiful 2-year-old female Black Labrador retriever mix who was picked up as a "stray" in San Bernadino County and no one came for her. She ended up in a high-kill shelter and we pulled her -- now she's on her way to Seattle, and headed to a foster home. She will be available for adoption shortly.
Foster Update: Kona is a sweet girl who seeks affection and craves human attention. She is very smart and playful, equally content to play in the yard or curl up on the couch with you. She does well with other dogs as long as there is a pack leader to manage the interactions, otherwise she can be a bit possessive over resources. She walks well on a leash and is not leash reactive though she can be timid of scary things like loud noises; she's also still learning how to go up and down stairs, in and out of cars -- needs a bit of encouragement with new experiences. She is interested in the cat but with additional training it could probably be managed. She needs a dog savvy owner who can give her the love and attention she needs. Preferably one with a secure yard, as she knows how to open doors, gate latches, etc. Yup, she's a smart cookie! She is house-trained, too!
Adoption Info: Kona's adoption fee is $495. This includes her spay, all vaccinations, health certificate, transport from California to Seattle, and microchipping. Adoption fees fund our rescue and support the rescue of all dogs in our care. Ginger's Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
This dog was just saved from a high-kill shelter in California and is on their way to Seattle to find their forever home.
