This pretty girl is Kona! Some lucky family is going to hit the jackpot with this spitfire! Kona was found as a stray in West Frankfort back in November 2020, and, despite efforts, her previous owners weren’t located.
She’s been hanging out in a foster home and we have learned so much about her – her new family is going to get “The Complete Guide to Kona” when they adopt her! (No joke – we have an amazing list of her likes, dislikes, and quirks to give to her adopters.)
Her foster family adores her and would love to keep her, but Kona needs to be an only child (no other dogs, no cats). Luckily, she is very lovable and will make the right person an awesome best friend! She loves attention and will do well as long as she has that, along with regular exercise.
Kona is housebroken and crate-trained. She is accustomed to sleeping in her kennel at night. She loves to be covered up with a blanket when she lays down for the night with her bone handy to chew on.
She knows a few commands (“sit and “shake) and could easily learn a lot more! She doesn’t like the rain and would much prefer to spend drizzly days cuddled up with you on the couch. Oddly enough, she doesn’t mind baths!
Kona has a sensitive stomach, but her foster mom reports that she does well on a strict treat-free diet with just the occasional small piece of carrot as a snack. Her new family will need to be diligent about making sure she doesn’t eat anything she shouldn’t.
She likes to chew on her Nylabones and shinbones when by herself, but should always be supervised with any other toys/bones (as she will eat them given the chance).
Kona is a handful – she likes to jump on people, plays rough, and will sometimes nip at you while she is playing, but she has never shown any aggression toward people. We haven’t seen her around small children, but she is much too rowdy for them. Older kids would probably be fine.
Her foster mom says, “I believe that she would do awesome with training to correct some of her bad habits, with someone is willing to go the extra mile for her.
She is strong, energetic, and full of life! If that’s what you’re looking for, maybe you’re Kona’s new best friend?
