Kona, who's only about a year old, will be able to live out his days in peace and comfort along with hundreds of other animals - including cats, cattle, sheep, goats, rams, ducks, swans, pigeons, rabbits and horses - each of whom were rescued during the recent raids.
"They're all at our sanctuary now," said Couto. "The animals that we have are ours for life. They'll stay with us forever."
That gentle dog is even doing his part to keep them safe.
"[Here is] Kona protecting the ducks and swans rescued from same property," Couto said. "He thinks they're his flock."
