This is Kupenda, a Newport Beach Kelpie. She loves to shop at Fashion Island, walk around Balboa Island on the water wall, play at Laguna Beach Dog Park and hike at Big Bear Lake. Police officer Walsh brought Kupenda to the Irvine Animal Care Center for adoption after being hit by a car. She was a featured December pet in the Irvine Animal Care Center Calendar.
