Do you like long strolls through the neighborhood? Do you love lots of kisses and smiles? Are you looking for a buddy who likes to snuggle up to you on the couch? Then I am your guy! My name is King. I am a golden retriever mix, and I am nine years young. During my time in foster care I have caught up on all my vaccinations. I am a laid-back guy and I have lots of love to give! My favorite things in the world are going for walks and hanging out with my humans. If you have to leave the house for a while, don’t worry, I’ll just stay here and take a nap and wait for you to come home. I would rather have you here by my side, but I understand my humans have to leave sometimes, and I will not mess up your stuff while you’re gone! I’m housebroken, too, so you won’t have to worry much about accidents. But if you like to take me with you, I can be a pretty good boy in the car, even though I am not sure why I can’t ride in front with you. Car rides make me happy though, and if you’d like to stop somewhere for some chicken nuggets or hot dogs or ice cream, I will not object!
I have been in foster care since April when my previous owners decided to send me away because they couldn’t care for me the way I needed. I was sad about that, but my foster parents give me lots of kisses and pets and that makes me much happier. As you will see from my pictures, I am a pretty handsome fella! I get some exercise now because I get walks every day, so I have lost a few pounds since I got here and am now just under 60 lbs! I also have this soft golden hair that you won’t be able to stop petting, and I love to decorate the house with it… I hope you don’t mind! I do have this new scar on my head near my eye, but I am told it just gives me more character! I got it because I had this really annoying lump over my eye, and a doctor had to remove it. It was a rough few days after that, but now I’m back and better than ever! I feel like a brand-new dog! My foster parents said that the lump was called a “low grade mast cell tumor” and I don’t need any more treatment for now. Whew! That’s a relief. I am definitely not a fan of all this medical stuff. They said my new home will just need to keep an eye out because it could grow back at some point in my life. But I don’t have time to worry about all that right now! I’m feeling good, and I am ready for my forever home where I can live out my Golden Years!
I am pretty easy to keep happy…I don’t need a whole lot of toys and I’m not a big chewer. I really like to take walks and naps and just hang out with you. I think I might like some laid back doggy friends, too, but I am a little skeptical of some dogs, so I don’t know if I would like to live with one, especially not small dogs or overactive dogs. When I see cats, I can’t help but chase them around, so my foster parents really don’t think it’s a good idea for me to live with one of those. I have loved to meet a bunch of new people, but I would probably do best with older children who understand that I am kind of an older guy and need to be handled with care. I really love being the center of attention, so I would be ok with being your one and only! Please consider giving me my forever home! I hope you can get past this little scar, because I am a really a fun boy to be around, and if you give me lots of love, I will be the best buddy you could ask for!
