This is a story of rags to riches. My name is King and as my name implies I am regal, brave loyal and magnificent. But this was not always the case. When I was relinquished from my owner, after it had been reported to Norwich Animal Control that he had been seen beating and starving me, I had a body score of 1 and I was so weak I could barely walk.
After diagnostic testing and lots of TLC from all of my friends at CT Animal House I was able to gain weight. It was a slow process, but now I am at my ideal weight and I look marvelous! I do require a very strict diet and daily enzyme supplements in order to process my food properly, but I’m worth it.
Even though I have endured so much in my short life I continue to wag my tail and give gentle kisses to everyone. I need a patient and knowledgeable adopter to teach me to fully trust again and navigate my way through a world that I have not had much exposure to.
I am a very energetic boy who loves to play, go on car rides and walks. I would love a big fenced in yard to run around in. Once I’ve been worn out from playing I do love a good couch to cuddle on. I would really like to be the only pet in the house –after all I am the King!
