While at the shelter, King definitely had issues. All of the commotion and the other animals were making his anxiety more intense, and he almost always needed to have a toy in his mouth in order to feel safe.
King had been at the shelter since December, and Erin O'Sullivan of Susie's Senior Dogs was pushing hard for him to get adopted. Susie's Senior Dogs is an organization that helps senior dogs find homes, and Erin, its founder, had taken a special interest in King. Erin made countless posts about King, hoping that the right person would see one and take a chance on him.
I had the pleasure of meeting King, and what I saw was an anxious dog who just needed to find a place he belonged in order to really find himself. That's all I wanted for King, all I wished for after every post Erin made. Almost a month after I wrote about King, everyone who has been rooting for him has finally seen all of our wishes come true.
