Meet King (New Digs)!

King is a 5-year-old fur-tastic four-legged charismatic canine! This 50 lbs Labrador Husky is the embodiment of joy, with his white and yellow-colored fur as soft as a cloud and those mesmerizing blue eyes that melt hearts on the spot.

King’s days are packed with thrilling adventures and endless cuddle sessions. He lives for belly rubs that rival a spa day, and long hikes and walks are his absolute favorites. This water-loving wonderdog can’t resist the siren call of a cool lake or a splashing stream. He dives right in, making a splash that could rival any Olympic swimmer. Squeaky toys are his personal obsession. King chases them back and forth across the house with boundless enthusiasm. Fetch, on the other hand, isn’t quite his cup of kibble. Maybe it has something to do with his playmate being a real fetch champion – who can blame him?

King’s temperament is nothing short of a burst of sunshine. He’s playful to his core, practically radiating energy, and the promise of food is all it takes to make him your best friend. That’s right; he’s food-motivated and proud of it! This charming pup isn’t just good looks and playfulness; he’s responsible too. King is microchipped, neutered, and up-to-date on his vaccines. He knows how to behave around other dogs, as long as they’re up for a good romp and don’t try to dominate him.

When it comes to tiny humans, King has a bit of a kryptonite. He’s fantastic with older kids, but small children require a little extra patience and boundaries. His loving nature can’t be denied, but there are moments when even the happiest tail-wagger needs a breather. Living in a cozy two-bedroom apartment, King’s zest for life sometimes bumps into the challenge of space. He yearns for moments of peace and relaxation away from the kids, but he doesn’t want to feel like he’s in doggy detention because he gets crated when the kids are out of control. So, the time has come for King to find a new home, one where he can thrive in a safer and more comfortable environment.

One of King’s quirks is his possessiveness when it comes to food and toys (does this to those he sees as his equal). Like a dragon guarding its treasure, King sometimes exhibits a tendency to protect his favorite possessions a bit too zealously. Then there’s the issue of marking. King, in his exuberance, sometimes leaves his mark around the house. But before you label him as the “Picasso of Pee,” remember that this is a common behavior in many dogs, especially males. While these minor flaws may seem daunting, it’s essential to remember that no dog is beyond improvement when they have a loving, patient, and dedicated owner by their side.

As we say hello to King, let’s celebrate the bright side of this vivacious pup. His loving and playful nature, those breathtaking blue eyes, and that infectious energy that brightens even the gloomiest day. King will always be the sunshine in our hearts, and we hope his next adventure is filled with all the love, fun, and belly rubs he deserves!
