POW! This Gentle, Expressive Mix Breed Is One Bonnie Lass

“The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.”
Sen. George Graham Vest (1869), “Tribute to the Dog”

When you first meet Bonnie, you might be a little confused when it comes to her breed. Her face says “Golden retriever” but the rest of her calls out “German shepherd!”


Might she be the newest designer canine? A Golden shepherd or a German retriever?

No, she’s just Bonnie, a 7-year-old mix-breed that came to KCAC as a stray. She definitely encompasses the sweet dispositions of both breeds, as she is extremely friendly when meeting new people or other dogs.

Her gentleness is refreshing, her demeanor is quiet, reserved, but curious. She likes to spend most of her time exploring the outdoors or relaxing inside with her favorite people.

Because she had a life lived in “before,” she is able to relate to long walks and naps afterwards. Her face is extremely expressive and when she has to take a potty break, she is capable of letting her person know right away.

If you’re missing something from social media, spending your days and nights looking high and low for that one entity that has your back and won’t steer you wrong in any situation, then Bonnie definitely meets all the essential aspects of a best friend forever.

KCAC Pupdate


Congratulations to Rodger, our high-energy 1-year-old Doberman Pincher-mix with the happy-go-lucky attitude.

Rodger never met anyone he didn’t like or couldn’t jump on. We are so happy to report that he was adopted and wasted no time springing into his new mom’s car.

He is happily living the good life running rings around his new brother.
