Kona is a huge English mastiff girl. She is a stunning fawn color with a black mask and natural ears and tail. She is a big girl, and as she gets more confidence she looks bigger and bigger when she stands up straight. She is a great girl and we adore her. She is a great dog. She came to us from a family that was unable to give her the home she needs. She had come from a puppy mill before that. Sadly she has had a rough start but we promised her no more babies, and only great homes from here out! She deserves it and is an amazing dog. She is sweet as can be and really is the ideal of a sweet soul.
Kona came to us from her past home. They had gotten her from a puppy mill where she was caged and only used for breeding. She had no interaction with people other then basic needs and breeding. She was never taken to the park, let in the house, or run in the grass. She was a form of income. She deserved so much better and when a gal found her being given away on a free site she jumped on her. Sadly a big dog with a lot of needs and fears was not what she was ready for when living in a small home with no yard. This was simply to much for her to take on and she asked for help. We are glad she did as she is a great girl and we adore her.
Kona is a great girl. She is a sweet as can be and needs a home that can give her love as well as help her see the world is a wonderful place. She loves cuddles, loves to go for walks, and loves other dogs when she is given time to adjust to them. It may take a few days to get her to that point. She is great with kids who are dog smart and able to give her a moment to say hi first. They are her safe place and she feels more confident with a confident friend around. She loves people and loves to have a good time. She does well in cars and likes to go for rides. She just needs a home that will take it slow and give her lots of time to adjust to a new home. She is an amazing girl and we adore her.
Kona is spayed, up to date, dewormed, flea treated, and ready for a new home. She is house broken, crate trained, does well on leash, and working on her basic commands. She loves dogs, does well with cats but will chase them unless she is told she is not supposed to. She is super smart and wants to make someone a great friend. She has no health issues that we have seen and is a sweet girl who has a heart of gold. She is an amazing girl and we adore her. She just needs someone to love her.
We spend a lot of time trying to get to know the dogs in our program as best as we can. This means that we have spent time introducing them to dogs, cats, kids, animals, people and as many things as we can. We try to do as much as we can to evaluate them, both with in our group and if the dogs come from other rescues or shelters their evaluations as well. However dogs are individuals and will react to different situations differently. This means that we do not know how a dog will react in every situation. We give out our best guess based off information provided but the handler of a dog and the way they are introduced to a situation makes a huge impact. So if you have any questions of how to introduce a dog to your home, please let us know and we will provide as much info as we can from pamphlets to helping find a trainer in your area.
Our rescue aims to help dogs who are passed by and over looked by most rescues and people. We help the dogs who are in need of medical care, vetting, training and breeds that most will not help with. In most shelters if you are large dog, a big dog, or a male dog; from the moment you walk in you are on barrowed time. If you have docked ears or are a guardian breed your time was over before you walked in the doors. We aim to save these dogs and give them a second chance. Please help us save more lives by helping with our medical bills as they grow. This year has already been hard and we have many medical dogs in need.

Listed puppies as Mastiff-Doberman mix. Told the whole store of the parents, what they looked like, how the doberman accidently got pregnant with the mastiff.... 6 months ish later, we dna test the dog (due to doubting the breeds), to find it is 50/50 staffordshire terrier with doberman. Pit Bull is a harder sell. When confronted with this information, Trisha threatened to come take the dog back, and to put a restraining order on me. She didn't like that I told her she was still under investigation with the Sherriff of Yakima Valley's Plice Dept. The Sherriff told me they receive a LOT of complaints about this lady.
