Hi Folks!!! King is my name and if you're wanting "a hunk of burning love" I am the guy for you!!! Plus, just look at how handsome I am!! My beautiful fur has grown out and I'm pretty fluffy now, but with this Texas heat I might ask for another 'shave down'. This has been such a hot summer!! Oh, hurry cooler weather!!!!!
I was found wondering in the park filthy, severely matted and all alone. A park can be a very scary place for dogs and I'm so happy I'm no longer there. Since I was a picked up as a stray not much is known about my past, but my foster family says I'm about one of the sweetest little dogs they have ever fostered. I just like everyone!! Dogs, children, adults and yes even the cockatoo that lives here in my foster home, however, I'm not sure Charlie cares much for me. Silly bird!!!!
I just love the dog treats I get and I have no food aggression at all. If I'm chewing on one of my dog bone chews I have no problem if one of the other furkids take it from me. I just go and get another one. Heck, life is too short to fight over a dog chew!!
I get so exicted when my foster mom gets the leash and we go for a walk. I do have a silly habit of jumping when I hear and see my leash, but we're working on stopping that. When I walk I take everything in and everything gets my attention. I do have a bit of a habit of pulling when I see a bird, but I'm not that strong and aren't pulling my foster mom all over the place. It's not like I'm an English Mastiff pulling.
Sometimes when I sniff the other dog crates I lift my leg and do a little potty. I know I shouldn't and I'm learning not to do that. When we go for our walks there are some really big dogs outside walking around!!! My foster mom calls them 'horses". I would like to play with them, but my foster mom doesn't think that's such a good idea. We all know how those mothers can be. So darn protective. That's okay with me because I know my foster mom only wants the best for me.
I love it when my foster mom throws the ball. I run and fetch it, bring it back and my foster mom throws that ball again. Oh, I have so much fun playing ball!!! If I'm not playing with the ball I'm playing with the other dogs!!!
If my foster mom or dad are sitting on the sofa I will jump up on their lap. What a great place to be and one of my favorite places in the entire house.
I love my foster family very much, but I want a home that I can call my very own. Heck, what furkid doesn't. My foster mom says I can only be adopted by that perfect person/family and I hope that will be soon. I will make a wonderful loving furchild and whoever adopts me will be a very very lucky person.
My foster mom said if you have any questions please do not hesitate to email her at:
Hope to hear from you soon!!!
