King’s Story

History:  King’s owner had been keeping him in their apartment (against the rules) for many many years.  The landlord did a surprise visit and realized they had a dog and forced the family to surrender him to a shelter immediately.

About:  Despite being blind King is an adventurous guy!  When he is introduced to a new space the first thing he wants to do is walk around and investigate.  King loves to cuddle and snuggle while in the house, but when he is outside he insists on being set down so that he can walk around and explore the world.  King does bark when he can’t find anyone or feels that he is alone. He is being fostered with multiple other dogs and he gets along great with everyone and loves to be in the middle of the action.  His foster home feels that he would probably do equally well with cats. King lives with a 13 year old and they get along great. He would probably do best in a home with someone who is home often, or has other friendly, social pets who can stay with him while the people are gone.  King has one silly/peculiar behavior: He loves to sleep with JUST his head covered by a blanket! King’s foster mom used the following words to describe him: Sweet, Gentle, Nuzzly, Cuddly, Adventurous.
