Koncho Rio is new to our rescue.  A vet's office reached out to see if we could help him.  He is 9 years old and is very sweet. He is VERY food motivated so no problems getting pills down him as long as they are in food.  He is very content being next to his foster Mom on the couch so he's a good couch potato.  When he has to be crated, he whines for 5 or 10 minutes and then quiets down.  Koncho is very well housettrained.  He would love to chase cats but doesn't want to hurt them.  

Koncho is not ready for adoption just yet.  He had surgery on his spine area near his neck and will need weeks to recover.  He will also need to get his shots updated.  He is recovering very well, walking, running and pretty much normal.  But we are still discouraging any jumping or roughhousing to be sure he doesn't get reinjured.  His new home should continue to be wary of his previous injury to avoid future problems.

If you would like to sponsor his during his time of recovery, please click on the sponsorship page.
