My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Kona is a very sweet boy with a tail that never stops wagging! He's been extremely friendly to every person and dog that he's met. He would fit perfectly in a quiet household with few or no stairs where someone works from home or is home most of the time. He would also love the company of another chill dog.

Kona had a torn ACL but with six weeks of cage rest he’s now ready for adoption.

He is estimated to be born in 2010 and weighs about 20 pounds.

Kona has some seasonal allergies and may require allergy medication. We are trying a food change to see if that helps, but he is a happy boy!

He still has quite a lot of spunk and energy! He can spend time playing (bonus: he's great on the leash!) and then he can just as soon relax on the couch and binge watch your favorite shows with you.

Kona does need an adopter with patience and who is willing to work with a few of his quirks. He does bark/cry (he has never been destructive) when left alone. Because of this, he would probably do best in a single family home, rather than an apartment or building with shared walls.

He also does best when left in a crate/kennel to prevent anxiety induced accidents- he's never soiled in his crate and generally enjoys going in there.

Additionally, he will need continued work with his house training, but the combination of crating and belly band usage during the daytime have both been useful in preventing accidents and he also happily sleeps in his crate throughout the night with no accidents.

Overall Kona is basically a dream dog with the perfect personality! He makes the funniest sounds when he's excited and will "walk" around like a seal dragging his back legs behind him which is probably the cutest darn thing I've ever seen.

He's an ideal patient at the vet and a very good boy getting his nails clipped at the groomer and will let me bathe him without putting up a fight. I can also confirm that he's non-shedding and he doesn't bother his foster dad's dog allergies. AND DID I MENTION THOSE EARS!?

*Likes: Looking out the car window (or really any window), squeaky toys, cheese, CHICKEN
*Dislikes: peanut butter (Blahh! ), Those pesky rabbits and squirrels!
Is yours his fur ever home?

Children in the home need to be at least 10 years old. He needs another dog in the home or someone home most of the time. He is located in IL
