Homeless senior dogs are often overlooked in shelters but still have a lot to offer. Often neglected and lonely, shelter life isn’t easy for an old dog. Thankfully, rescuers like Rocky Kanaka are helping them get noticed so they can find a forever home.
Take this dog named King for example. King is a senior who has spent the past year in a shelter, waiting for a loving home of his own. His age is only one of his challenges, he also had a leg amputated, making him a tripod dog.
If any pup could use some cheering up and TLC, it was King. So, when Rocky learned about him, he was inspired to do something extra special for the dog. He decided to take him on a shopping spree where King could keep everything he touches.
On the big day, no one knew how King would respond or if he’d even been in a pet store before. How would King think of his shopping spree? If his smile is any indication, with pleasure, that’s how.
King was picked up from Marley’s Mutts and taken to Petco. King got super excited going into the pet store. Clearly, King may never have shopped before, but he was going to be up for the challenge. It didn’t take King long to figure out how to be a power shopper.
King was excited to start shopping and check out all the merchandise. His first stop was a can of dog food. Uncertain about what toys are, he had to be shown that toys are fun. Next, he picked out more yums in the form of healthy treats.
Moving on from the food, a Jolly ball captured his attention. On a roll now, three toys later, King is ready for more but only after a little rest. Soon more healthy treats were calling until he discovered the knucklebone chews.
King wiped out the dog chew aisle, clearly his favorite spot in the store. The bigger the chew the better, King is having so much fun and deserves it more than words can say. King was an abandoned dog, hit by a car, had to have a leg amputated, and then rescued by Marley’s Mutts. But today, he is a shopper extraordinaire.
We hope you enjoy this adorable video of King’s special day. He is adorable and had so much fun shopping for the first time, ever. We hope all the attention got him his forever home. We think all shelter dogs deserve an outing like this. Please share with your friends.
