**** TO BE KILLED - 1/13/2018 ****
WINNER ALERT FOR A HANDSOME, FUN & SUPER SOCIAL YOUNG MAN =D A volunteer writes: King George is mad...about you! Lovable, loyal and just the right amount of looney, our King isn't one to sit idle on his throne when visitors call. You'll find him waiting right by the door, tail wagging wildly in anticipation of adventures to come. George welcomes friends of every species, size or age with a bushel of enthusiastic cuddles. In his previous home he lived in harmony with an 8-year-old child, played respectfully with other dogs, and had no problem sharing his toys or food, either. Easy to leash and a fine walker too, George isn't bothered by the cold. When we hit the yard, he eagerly snuffles through snowbanks and bounces after a toy before running back to me for a well-earned body massage. If you want a pet who'll stick by your side (sometimes quite literally) no matter what, then George is the dog for you. Oceans rise, empires fall, but you'll see each other through it all, and when push comes to shove... he will kiss your friends and family to remind you of his love! A mighty spirit in a tiny package, King George can't wait to reign over your heart and home for many happy years to come.
