Meet Poncho

Add to favourites

Poncho arrived at the Kamloops SPCA because he was too much for his previous owner to handle. He is a very friendly and outgoing dog who loves to be with people. Poncho recently went to the vet for xrays on his back end, and sadly it showed that he has early onset of arthritis in his hocks. This is being managed with a daily medication that helps with inflammation and pain. Poncho doesn’t seem to know that he’s different from other dogs medically because he loves to run and play with his other canine friends. In fact he’s now made 3 different dog friends that he plays with here at the shelter. His excitement for life is contagious! Everyone that meets Poncho can’t resist his charm (it’s that smile). Poncho is looking for a guardian(s) that will be able to spend lots of time with him and make sure he’s got lots of mental and physical outlets. Because when he gets bored he has a history of escape behaviour and chasing livestock. Good obedience and a confident guardian is important as he is still learning. He may get anxious when left alone for too long. So he will need to get used to spending time alone slowly a few minutes at a time.

A behaviour counselling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal to help ensure success in the new home.

Due to Covid 19 we’ve made changes to our adoption process.
To adopt please:
1. Submit an online application at:
2. If it’s a match, staff will contact you to set-up an appointment to come in for a visit.

**We often receive many applications for an available animal. We do our best to respond, although are not always able to respond to all applicants. We will reach out to the approved adopter only.
