Meet the Playful and Powerful Pongo,
Pongo came into our care when his owners had a lifestyle change and could no longer care for him. In his previous life, he lived with dogs and cats and would do well in a home with other animals provided slow introductions are followed. He is very playful with dogs in our care and is happy to snuggle up with staff and volunteers. He is quite barrel chested and tends to run into people when excited. He will need additional training on his jumpy behaviour and controlling his urges to jump into your lap to say hello. He is incredibly friendly, knows how to sit, shake, spin and down. He is very active and will need a home that can keep him feeling fit and healthy. He is a little on the chunky side and could use to trim down his waistline to ensure he lives an optimal and long life.
He has not been exposed to children but may do okay with older, dog savvy children in the home. Due to his breeds, he can be very vocal when left alone so apartment living may not be suitable, especially if left alone for long periods of time. If you would like to learn more about Pongo, please send us an application today!
