48853 – Tonka
Why choose me?
Update 3/13: Tonka and Tao are now playmates! They can only play together if a staff member is present, but if things are quiet around the shelter while you are visiting, you can ask if it’s a good time for a play date!
Tonka’s owner surrendered him because they didn’t have enough time for him and felt it was unfair keep him crated for long hours. Tonka isn’t moping about it though – he even seems glad to be here! Good food, plenty of people and lots of exciting smells and activity going on – what’s not to like? Although Tonka is no longer crated for long hours, he is still in a dog run at the shelter for many hours a day, so he is very exuberant when you take him out. Room to run, at last! Tonka’s owner reports that he’s good with other dogs and kids – we haven’t tested him with that here, but he certainly seems like a friendly boy!
