ROTTERDAM, NY;       He’s a serious looking guy, but is proving to be lots of fun. King just graduated from Tall Tails Training in PA and is now all ready to find his forever home.

Charles, Richard, Elvis….all kings, just like me!! That’s because we all rule at stuff. Like me, I deserve a crown just for being so cute and cuddly. All I need is my kingdom, which in doggie world means a forever family. A really good boy that is downright adorable like me deserves it. A lot of humans like my foster and volunteer have nothing but royally awesome things to say about me. Like how good I am on my leash and that I love my walks, I am house trained, really like kids, know my commands like sit and stay, loving and playful. All I need is my throne, a fluffy doggy bed after a long day of fun and snuggles. As long as your close, this is one happy King! If you think I’m cute in pictures, come meet me and see why they call me King!

Shelter Notes: A volunteer writes:

Last Christmas King Clown was the adorable gift his family gave themselves, a tiny bundle of wrinkles and sweetness who wanted nothing more than to snuggle, play, eat and sleep. Except for a few (ok, around 45) extra pounds he’s still all those things and a whole lot of sassy fun besides yet this Christmas there’s a big piece missing from King Clown’s life…no more family. Which is where you come in! He’d be the perfect partner for an active, outdoorsy home and would love to spend this Christmas dashing through the snow (he loves the snow), capturing a ball and leaping back into the waiting arms of his lucky adopter–you!

Described as friendly, affectionate, playful and confident by his former owners, King Clown’s a happy young dude who loves to explore and he’s always up for a good game of fetch or tug. He walks enthusiastically on leash, seems very house trained and knows commands for come, sit and stay, though the latter can sometimes get a bit lost in the excitement of playtime. All this and he’s dazzlingly handsome too! King Clown formerly lived with very young kids but his energetic bounciness would be better suited to a home with older children, the more the merrier as he loves to socialize and is happy to spread his smushy-faced love around.

King, your future best friend! He is neutered, up to date on shots, and micro chipped.
