Congo is a sweet loving boy. He is medium energy, greets everyone with a happy tail, and has an eagerness for affection.
Congo and his littermate, Kenya (also for adoption) Kenya were found on the streets of Houston.
Congo came to us so matted that he could barely walk because of his hair binding the back legs together. He had such a difficult time even going potty.
But those days are behind him and he definitely does not show any ill effects.
This boy is dog and cat friendly, but does tends to try to be alpha to other male dogs. He ignores all the super senior house cats.
Congo is crate trained and working on house training.
He now has the most beautiful silver brindle coat. He is non shedding and will need grooming. He grooms very easily.
This amazing boy would love outdoor activities, so an active family is a plus.
Congo will do well in most any household.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
