Poor King has a history of being left behind. When King was about 2 years old he found himself abandoned by the person he knew and loved. He ended up with a family member after being left by his initial owner but was too quick to spent his days playing escape artist from this temporary home in an attempt to try to take matters into his own paws to seek out a more loving home. After several of his own family searches and several friendly rides with Animal Control, DDR stepped in to help find him a home. And we did. He has been with a family for 3+ years that he never tried to escape. Now that devastated family is being forced to move into a living situation in which they can not take him.

Luckily, despite all of this, King still has endless love to give. King is described as both lazy and energetic at the same time. When it's time to rest, King is such a cuddler who loves to give and get affection. When it comes to time to play, his favorite games to play with his humans are ball, gentle tug of war, and with his toys. King has been through training and knows all of his basic commands and then some, like sit, stay, wait, paw, go, and okay. All King's previous family wants is for his next home to be his last and for him to have all the love her deserves and more. If you think you might be that family, please reach out.
