Hi there, I'm Tonka
I am a spayed female, black and tan Australian Kelpie mix. ** shy/fearful, but warms up with time (go slow with me, please) ** once comfortable, sleeps well through the night & sits patiently to be leashed and petted ** smart, strong, agile & quick ** loves attention, praise, neck rubs and giving kisses ** needs a good bit of daily exercise and mental stimulation ** loves long and/or frequent walks and/or ample playtime ** barks when other dogs/animals and sometimes people are visible out the window- mostly just whimpers/whines ** appears to be housebroken ** would benefit from training- needs work on socialization (due to fearfulness) and leash skills (mostly for pulling) ** mature, active household is probably best for me**Please contact Tonka's foster mom, Terri, at 719-330-5454 (call or text) to inquire about Tonka or set up a visit. Please allow up to 24 hours for Terri to respond.
