Pongo is sponsored by Claire Hubble in memory of Corona who was an active but loving pup too.
Diamond Puppy Pongo is an energetic adolescent looking for an owner that can keep up with him - physically and mentally. Looking for a cuddly couch-potato? This is not your dog! As an 8 month old Border Collie/Pit mix (with possibly some Great White Shark thrown in there...) Pongo is extremely smart, works hard for his treats and toys, but still has trouble controlling his mouthy impulses when he gets excited, which is often! His training team is working to help Pongo learn how to appropriately channel his energy and enthusiasm (fetch! tug! perhaps even agility!) but he will need ongoing training for months to come as finishes growing and maturing - hopefully in a home, not in the shelter! A fenced yard and a doggy sibling to romp with would be very beneficial to help him burn up energy, but he will still need an owner committed to providing daily structure and guidance. If you think you are up to the challenge that is Pongo, please call WHS at 828-264-7865 (ask for Christy or Ashlee) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about him and ask to set up a meet & greet.
