Cattle Dog lovers, meet Kona, a gorgeous 1 year-old whose markings are a true work of art. This lovely lady was adopted by someone to be a companion for her senior dog but the senior dog wasn’t willing to accept an active young dog in her life so Kona found herself shelter-bound to find a new home. Fortunately, a local rescuer intervened and contacted us for help with her so Kona made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could take her time finding the perfect new home. Kona is a sweet loving dog who gets along well with other dogs but would do best in a home with a dog her age who she can play with. True to her breed, Kona likes to be busy so a life where she’d be left alone for long workdays would not suit her. She needs a job to do so even if herding cattle may not be in her future, running or hiking regularly with her new family would be great. Kona does quite well on a leash, has excellent crate manners, and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. She hopes to find a new owner who’s experienced in the needs of herding breeds and has plenty of time to spend training, exercising, and playing with her. Kona weighs about 36 pounds and her adoption fee is $350. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Kona. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
