In the company of a caring person, a dog's loyal heart may very well be the most enduring thing the world has ever known. But though that heart might be hard to break, when it does, it shatters.
That's what's happened to King, time and time again.
Two years ago, the friendly pup's original owner decided he didn't want King anymore, so he dropped him off at a North Carolina animal shelter - despite being warned that he'd likely be euthanized within days.
Fortunately, a rescue group intervened in time to save his life, but that was just the beginning of a new set of hardships.
