Pongo is so sweet and cute and has such a sad story. You'll see Pongo's picture as a puppy here. He and his brother were adopted to a home in Memphis but then Pongo started losing his hair (probably due to the fact that the family didn't put flea and tick protection on him so pongo was covered with fleas). When Pongo started losing his hair, his "family" called Memphis Animal Control (a high kill animal control) to pick him up. So he lost his hair and then lost his family. He is now on the road to full recovery and his hair is growing back nicely. His condition is not contagious and he is looking amazing! He is one pretty puppy! So sweet! Just a happy, goofy big puppy. He loves everyone he meets and is doing great on his crate training. He is awesome with other dogs. He is about 36 pounds and will remain a medium sized dog. Pongo is going to make an amazing family member!! Come meet Pongo and you'll see why we worked so hard to save him.

About Keely's Friends Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Keely was my 14-year-old pitbull that crossed Rainbow Ridge a few years ago. She was the most mishievous, rambunctious girl you can imagine and she was my girl. She was the kind of dog that many would have given up on. She was an escape artist and I spent many days and nights searching for her once even finding out that she had snuck in through a neighbor's cat door and walked upstairs to his bedroom, jumped on his bed and woke him up with a lick in the face at 3am in the morning. On one of our daily runs I had to swim into a cow pond to save a cow that she had decided to grab by the ear while the cow was taking a dip. She decided my neighbor's pet llama was a little too close to me one day and decided to grab her around the throat....llama was fine. So many fun emoticon I often wondered if Keely had not found me and ended up in animal control....would she have made it out? Most pits don't....over 750,000 euthanized yearly...90% of bully-type dogs that end up in animal control are PTS immediately. This led me to start a rescue group named after Keely. I mainly rescue medium to large breed dogs from animal control as we know those are the first ones to be euthanized. I also focus on catahoulas as those are often misunderstood and end up in animal control but I've worked with all breeds. Keely's Friends Dog Rescue has rescued and rehomed over 70 dogs at this point and I look forward to helping so many more. I dream of a world where we no longer have to euthanize any dog for overpopulation and every dog has a wonderful, loving home.

Our Adoption Process...

We work to get as many dogs out of local animal controls and into loving homes. We also accept dogs that need to be rehomed from their current living environment due to changing family situations. Fees vary ($75 to $600...most are in the $175 to $275 range) depending on dog and fees associated with the rescue of each dog.
