Pongo Needs a Home

About Pongo

Pongo is a young male looking for a new home. He is currently in a foster home and looking for a forever home. Pongo was originally from Italy but we are helping the rescue over there to find Pongo a new home here in the UK.

Pongo was found abandoned at the entrance to the forest with his leg in a trap, he was only months old at the time. He was understandably traumatized by the experience.

Unfortunately the leg was so badly damaged it had to be amputated, but Pongo is now approximately 13 months old and is getting really used to having 3 legs. He can walk and jump normally. He is a very affectionate, obedient and playful boy. He could be rehomed with another female dog but he is not cat tested.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested.

Home checks, Vet checks & Adoption fees apply
