About me

Hello my name is Tonka and I am half Akita, with some German shepherd and Rottweiler,

I am big softy at heart and love nothing more than to cuddle up with the family or just enjoy relaxing with company around me. When out on a walk I love to run around and play, especially with other dogs. Due to a high predatory drive I would need to be walked on lead unless in a secure area, without wildlife and the garden would need to be very secure. I can be a little bit shy when I first meet new people but if your patient and quiet I will build up a great bond with you. My new owners would ideally be experienced dog owners.

I have previously lived with other animals, however as I find it a game to chase smaller animals, I would only be suitable to live another dog, pending a match and successful meet and greet. I have also previously lived with children and could possibly live with older respectful children pending a successful meet and greet.

Looked after…

  • I've been vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and neutered as required
  • Examined by a vet and treated as required
  • Assessed by an experienced member of our team
  • Given an individual profile to help match me with my new owner
  • Rehomed with four weeks' free insurance from Petplan

How rehoming works

  1. Browse our pets, find your favourite

    Read the pet’s profile to make sure that they are suitable for your circumstances.

  2. Change the online application form

    We want to be fair to everyone who applies for a pet so applications are dealt with in the order that we receive them.

  3. We process your application

    Please be patient while we process your application. If you are successful we will contact you to go through next steps.

Thanks for reading my story…

I'd like to say I have a lot to give to my new owner and that I think I deserve a warm and loving home. Can you help me out? I think Blue Cross would be much appreciative!
