About King

King A223428 King is an 8 year old neutered male who came into the shelter on 12/18/20 as an owner surrender. Handling 12/25: Leash Test: Leash Test: King is sad and stoic at the shelter. The first few days he did a lot of owner searching whenever he was outside. He doesn’t pitch a fit in his kennel going back in but can be a little shy at first coming out with leashing. It was clear he wanted out and was willing to engage just hesitant with new people in a scary new place. King has great leash manners in the yard. He doesn’t even pull hard to the fence to owner search. King was fine doing his own thing but eventually was persuaded to sit for treats. He takes them gently and allowed light petting. Poor buddy flinches whenever we go to pet him though. After a few days King gave us some tail wags but remains pretty low energy.

Nora A221589 Nora is a 6 year old spayed female who came into the shelter on 10/6/20 as a confiscate. Handling 12/15: Handling 11/7: Handling: Look at that face!! Look at those eyes!! BEAUTIFUL!! She is so bewildered by the shelter environment. Not sure how she got here or why she is here. We have spent time with her over the past week since age arrived at the shelter and can see it will take a little more time for her to trust us. She is easy to leash up and take outside-she has learned the routine! When she sees the volunteer with treats and a leash approach her kennel she knows that mean it’s her turn and she is ready!! Outside she keeps to herself coming close enough to ask for more treats but staring deeply into your eyes and making quiet snort sounds-that means “I would like more treats please”. Nora spends most of her time sniffing the perimeter of the play yard and will often watch trucks as they park nearby-I imagine she is thinking to herself “are they here for me ?” She misses someone and seems quite well cared for. Soon we know she will trust us at the shelter and see we only want the best for her. Give her a few days and she will blossom!! We love her don’t you?? show less
