Kongo came to Animal Rescue New Orleans as a 6 month old puppy. He was seen by an ARNO volunteer tethered in the backyard day and night. ARNO worked with the owner on getting him off the tether, but at one point, the dog was locked in a shed. The owner finally decided it was best to give him a opportunity at finding a home and surrendered him to ARNO. Due to the stress he was in, he had horrible skin issues when he came to the shelter.
Kongo is now a healthy, 110 lbs of pure goofiness and fun. He has these sad puppy dog eyes but always has a smile on his face. He goes out on day trips with one of our dedicated volunteers. He is not reactive and enjoys playing with other dogs. He loves his car rides where he will stick his head out the window and just enjoy the ride! Kongo loves to play and run, so a strong handler would be good for him because of his size. He is very intelligent and knows basic commands, but does need to refine his training. He is treat motivated and listens well to direction.
The adoption fee is $200 and includes neuter, UTD vaccines, rabies, chip, and heartworm treatment (if applicable). Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details, or come by the shelter any day between 3pm and 7pm to visit this goofball! animalrescueneworleans.org
