Help US Help KING
This is the sad face of cruelty and neglect. Poor King was relinquished from his owner when it was reported to Norwich Animal Control that he had been seen beating and starving King. When found, King had a body score of 1 and was very weak and could barely walk. It has been a slow process to get this sweet boy to gain weight. After diagnostic testing, and lots of TLC from all of his friends, King seems to be turning the corner and putting on some weight. Sadly, cruelty and neglect cases are not an uncommon occurrence for Animal Control Officers. Poor King has endured so much in his life, but continues to wag his tail and give gentle kisses. He loves car rides and walks. He will need a patient and knowledgeable adopter to teach him to fully trust again, as he can be protective of the person he bonds with. Who can blame him? He does not seem reactive with other dogs, but a meet and greet will be required. If you have the love and patience to give to this deserving dog, please fill out our adoption application. Please be specific with your Vet information as King is still considered a medical case. He is on a special diet and will require supplements daily as he continues to put on weight. We believe that settling in to a home will do him a world of good. Could it be yours? King thanks you.
