Kanga is looking for a squirrel-hunting fur-ever partner!

Kanga is a gentle giant who wants nothing more than to cuddle up and go on long walks looking for squirrels. His favorite pastime is rolling in the grass and trying to befriend every passerby, furry or not. When no one is around, Kanga enjoys hanging out with his cat BFF or chills out in his crate with his favorite blankets and toys.

Kanga first came to APA in 2021 to receive care after having been shot in the spine. He needed to have one of his hind legs amputated, but he quickly adapted to life on 3 legs. The injuries to his spine left him incontinent, but all that means is he requires a few extra potty breaks a day, and he wears fashionable diapers when he's inside the house. He isn't aware of his differences, and they certainly don't get him down! He can climb stairs, jump out of the car, and will snuggle on the couch with you when you're feeling down.

Despite all that Kanga has been through, he is the most happy-go-lucky, friendly and affectionate dog around. Looking for your new BFF? Ask about Kanga today!
