Pet of the Week
Pet of the Week photo Breed:Siberian Husky/Border Collie mix
Location:Gainesville, GA
OwnerSarah DeChamplain
My name is Talented K9 Tonya. My story is unique because I was abandoned not once, but twice in my short life! My forever owner wasn't my first owner and for all she knows, wasn't the second either! You see, my forever owner used to be my dog walker and she walked me ever since she first met me and my former owner when I was around 5 months old. My former owners found me wandering around in the streets matted, heartworm positive, and covered in fleas. My former owner took me in, got me vetted, groomed and gave me a home. Problem was, when I got bigger my owner didnít want the responsibility a bigger dog (40 lbs.) needed and left me tied outside at all times and in all weather conditions. After about two years, my former owner moved and left me abandoned. Thatís when my former dog walkerís family stepped in and adopted me. I have been living a happy life ever since and whatís more, itís permanent! I now know around 200 tricks, have appeared on TV twice, enjoy doing agility, Frisbee, weight-pulling, tracking and nose work!
