Shelter: Dog Rescued from Abandoned Home Ready for Forever Home


The Associated Humane Society rescue at Popcorn Park shared a story this week about a dog that was rescued from a horrible situation last fall.

Kronk is a big, beautiful Dogue De Bordeaux of about 6 years old that is hoping for a fabulous home to start over in. Kronk always looks as if he is smiling, doesn’t he? He has plenty to smile about these days, now that he is safe and taken care of. Sadly, that wasn’t always the case for Kronk. He was removed from a terrible situation along with another dog last fall. Kronk was living in an abandoned house in conditions that were too deplorable to imagine. He spent some time getting healthy and back on his feet, now he’s ready to move on with his life. Kronk was a little leery of new people when he arrived but we learned that with patience and time, Kronk learns to trust people and then just acts like a big, silly puppy. Once you’re his friend, he’ll love you forever. He is playful, active and strong, but he walks well on a leash and sits nicely when asked. He gets along with larger dogs, given the chance to get to know them, but will need a home with no children under 10. Kronk just melts when you give him a little love and attention, and that’s really all he’s asking for. He’ll love you so much in return if you give him a chance.
