Help Give Kong the Love He Deserves 

Meet Kong, a stunning 90-pound Great Dane mix who finds himself in desperate need of a loving home. This gentle giants world turned upside down when he was surrendered to the animal shelter due to a heartbreaking incident. Kong nipped at his previous owners adult daughters shoe, and as a result, trust was shattered, leaving him without the loving home he once knew.

Since arriving at the shelter on June 20th, Kong has made significant progress in overcoming his shyness. He has been neutered and is up to date on his rabies vaccine, showing his readiness to embark on a new chapter in life. Kong is just two years old, with so much life left to live, but he desperately needs someone who will understand his unique needs and patiently help him regain his confidence.

Although Kong is said to be good with other dogs, a meet and greet with any potential canine companions would be required to ensure compatibility. His interactions with fellow four-legged friends have been positive, offering hope for a new bond to form. However, Kongs previous experiences have made him wary of sudden movements and rapid hand gestures, so a home without small children would be the best fit for him.

Kongs potential shines through his handsome appearance, and his past training as a crate and house-trained dog demonstrate his willingness to adapt. Despite being given as a gift two years ago, Kong now finds himself in the shelter, yearning for a loving home where he can feel safe and cherished. Regardless of his exact breed, his kind and gentle nature are undeniable, and he deserves a second chance at happiness.

If you believe you could be the compassionate, patient, and understanding individual or family that Kong needs, we implore you to visit him today. Witness firsthand the progress he has made and envision the amazing future he could have with your love and care.
