Pet of the Week: Pongo the Pekinese Mix

Pongo is a 5-year-old male Pekinese mix that has had a rough time.

This little guy had a skin condition, which the shelter has been treating.

He is much better now and is up front at the Shelter with the other dogs.

Pongo is a friendly fellow that loves children and does well with other dogs. He also is housebroken and loves to go for walks.
