Are you looking for a super special dog that will be your best friend for life? Meet Pongo. Pongo has a very sad story, but he would never tell it to you because he is just happy that he got a second shot at life! He found himself at a very high kill shelter in Georgia with a terribly deformed front leg, as you can see in the photos. Rescues were scared to help him because they knew he would be an expensive case with that leg. But, not The Last Resort Rescue! As soon as a foster agreed to help Pongo out, TLR jumped in to get him the best vet care a dog can have! Turns out he had major nerve damage in his leg that he had probably been living with for quite some time, caused by an old injury. The vet assessed that for the highest quality of life, it should be amputated. Well… don’t feel sorry for Pongo because as soon as the leg was removed he became a happy energetic boy that was jumping up and down for kisses from his foster mom and going up and down the stairs immediately. We believe Pongo is a Dalmatian/pointer mix and that he is 2-3 years old. Pongo weighs 55 lbs. We don’t know all that much about Pongo yet (except for his awesome will to live) but as soon as he gets settled into his foster home we’ll be updating this page with more information. Pongo has been neutered and is up to date on shots also and is HEALTHY!! He is currently in foster in NC. Pongo can be transported to either MD or NJ so approved adopters must be willing to pick up in either NC, NJ, or MD.
