This sweet boy has been patiently waiting at the shelter for his forever family to come in and meet him. Tonka is a 7-year-old neutered male. He's a complete love bug: He enjoys treats, walks, and belly rubs while lying in your lap. He is microchipped and fully vaccinated – once he is adopted, he will be ready to go home right away.
