King may not look like royalty yet, but he’s getting there. Scared, slightly depressed, diagnosed with heart-worm and malnourished, it took King’s foster dad some time to see his true personality shine through. He says, “From the moment this beautiful lab looks into your eyes, he will draw you in with his love and affection.”
King loves his humans and always wants to be with them. He will cuddle up at your feet and walk right beside you – literally! Very mellow and calm, King is not interested in chasing lizards or squirrels. He’s good on a leash and is friendly to both four and two legged neighbors but doesn’t like it when other dogs bark at him.
King is housebroken and doesn’t need a crate. He knows some commands and is learning more. He gets very excited going places and exploring the world. The problem is getting him to leave. King’s foster dad is working with him and says, “We’re helping him cope with leaving places so he’ll be the perfect companion for you and your family.”
Caught early, heart-worm can be treated, but it is a lengthy and expensive process. Any donations to help pay for some of King’s medical expenses would be greatly appreciated.
