I was lucky enough to find my place early on. King is already 10 years old, but that doesn't mean he has any less love to give. Everyone, no matter his age or circumstance, deserves to feel like he finally belongs.
That's what I want for King. I want him to find that place, that home, that person, where he can grow to be the dog who exists inside him. Everyone deserves that, especially King.
As Erin pointed out, "It only takes one person to see his story and think, 'I could take him.'"
Anxiety can be incredibly challenging, and sometimes people might find it hard to connect with someone who has anxiety. Once you bridge that gap, though, once you form that bond, that person will love you and appreciate you so much more than you could ever imagine. If you adopt King, he will be forever grateful to you, his knight in shining armor. He will never stop loving you.
To King's future owner: I know you are out there, and King is so excited to meet you. I understand what King is going through, and I know that you do too. I know that you will be the one who understands.
I write about dogs all day long, abandoned dogs who all need homes and love, and they will find that - but my friend King needs a little extra help. So please, spread the word and spread the love. King deserves the chance to grow and change in a place where he feels comfortable. My family and friends helped me to find that, and now I want to help King.
After all, we anxious ones have to stick together.
