Konga - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care & Adoption Center, Cucamonga, CA.

I searched shelters and pounds for YEARS looking to adopt a young German Shepherd. There are a lot of breeders in my area, some selling puppies for several thousand dollars, but I felt like there was someone special out there that needed saving. One day I did my routine search on petfinder.com and there he was... three months old, half German Shepherd, half Siberian Husky, and I instantly knew this little 8 pound baby was going to be the love of my life and my best friend. Now Konga is seven months old and training to be my (blood pressure) service animal! He sleeps next to me every night with his head on my pillow and is truly the most life changing, amazing thing that has ever happened to me. We are together every second, going on road trips to National Parks, going to the dog park, going to obedience class, and of course cuddling and watching movies! People stop me EVERY DAY walking and ask me where I got him, and how expensive he was, and I tell everyone that he is a rescue and I found my perfect, smart, beautiful, amazing boy on petfinder.com!
