Kona is a great dog, smart, loyal and sweet. Kona is great on a leash (best with harness) and great off-leash on a hike. He loves to go for a run with his person. Kona loves his people. We have had Kona for a year now and he has been the perfect dog until recently. He has started showing aggression toward small children entering our house. We understand there may have been some mistreatment by children before he was rescued and this probably has resulted in his recent behavior. He is great with our kids but we feel he needs an adult-only home. Kona travels well in the car and is easy and happy when we board him if we travel without him. Kona is house trained and does well alone all day while we are at work. We have trained him on some basic commands and he picked those up quickly. He would make a great pet for an active adult. He is 75 pounds, 3 years old, black mouth cur mix. He is in great health and has all his vaccinations. He is on heartworm and flea/tick prevention and we will send those along with him.
