Adoptable Dogs: King
|Breed||*Mutt-i-gree/Mix, American Pit Bull Terrier, German Shepherd, Terrier|
King truly has the ability to be someone's perfect pet. Loyal, intelligent, and playful are perfect adjectives to describe this handsome young pooch. King has unfortunately spent way to much of his young life living in a shelter. In spite of that, his demeanor has not wavered. His loving personality has made him a favorite among the staff and volunteers. All King wants is to snuggle up next to you on the couch and watch TV. He would also love to have a canine best friend to romp around with. He enjoys playing fetch as well as "tag." King needs someone who is willing to take the time to earn his trust. King does occasionally prefer to keep his toys and treats to himself until he's built that bond with you, although that shouldn't take too long with someone willing to put in a little effort; King will gladly meet you half way. He is housebroken and has mastered "sit," "down," "paw," and the very important and difficult "stay/wait" command. He would do best in a home with individuals over 16 years of age as he requires those who are able to respect his boundaries until they've built that trust. Photo courtesy of Ellen Dunn.
