Welcome to our weekly adopt-an-animal feature that we recently revived! We’ve partnered with local rescue organization KARES (Kohala Animal Relocation and Education Service) to give Big Island Pulse readers who are looking to adopt a pet a look at some of the wonderful animals that they have available for adoption. This week we are getting to know Bronco, a handsome, young Great Dane mix who would make a wonderful family pet. He’s just one of many adoptable pets available, but he is at the top of their list for needing a home.
Bronco is approximately 1 year to 1.5 years old. He weighs in at 70lbs and we believe he is a Great Dane mix, though we are not quite sure what the mix is; it could be Border Collie, Heeler, or even Pitbull. He was found roaming the coffee farms up in Holualoa. The foster advertised for a found dog but no one came forward to claim him. He was recently neutered, microchipped, and tested negative for heartworm. He’s a very sweet dog, has no interest in chasing cats or chickens. He does the Great Dane lean — he leans his entire body into your legs and just relaxes. He is friendly with other dogs, but of course will need to be tested around any new dogs already in the home. He is very mellow and isn’t much of a barker. He will make a great family dog.
For more information on Bronco call 333-6299. If you want to adopt a pet, check out our Facebook page, as well as our website www.kareshawaii.org to learn more about the other adoptable pets that need homes.
These wonderful animals are also still in need of good homes:
