Kona needs a home!! Please help us find loving new parents for him!
Kona (ID A379731) is a tan and white Labrador Retriever mix. Kona is approximately 1 year, 3 months old. He weighs 55 pounds. He was surrendered by the his owners who had to relocate and could no longer afford to care for him. He’s a very, very sweet dog. Imagine being left by the only family you’ve ever known at this strange place full of other dogs and unknown people. When I walked Kona in front of the Shelter on Saturday.. he would look at each car that drove up with anticipation and excitement - as if he fully expected each car to contain his parents who had finally come back to pick him up. As you can imagine, it was hard to take him back inside. Despite all of this, he’s still happy (just look at that dog smile!). He’s a tall boy with a big heart. He’s very smart and loves to play ball. He’s housebroken and knows sit and come.
October is ADOPT A DOG MONTH and Jacksonville ACPS is celebrating by discounting adoption fees one-half for dogs each Saturday in October.
