This is Kona, he is a Puggle (half pug, half beagle).
Kona was born on August 30th, 2008. He enjoys looking out windows, long naps, hanging out with kids, and eating treats. When Kona was 4 years old, he was diagnosed as allergic to chicken. This was a very traumatic event in his life, which he is still struggling to accept.
Kona began his long career as a mascot for The Needham Bowlaway in 2008, then The Stoughton Sports Center (which soon became Tiki Bowl), after that he became the model for Trader Joe's signs for dog treats in Hingham, MA. Finally he started his career at Liz Boston Art Studio as a studio dog in 2015. His main duties there were greeting customers, assisting with art classes, studio mascot at Art Parties and Paint Nights, and appearing in all of the group photos. He is excited about the Paint The States Tour and his new little pup Ollie, who he has accepted the role of Father Dog too.
