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. 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.

Help Tonka to find a happy home with the gift of pet sponsorship!

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
