It was about six months ago, when King was thought to be a monster because of the way that he looked.
He would stand on the side of a fairly busy road in Madera Ranchos, California. He would look hunched over in pain and had wounds and scabs all over his body. This is what made many people scared to stop and check on him.
By the looks of it, King did not have much time left to live. He was hurt, starving, and extremely sick. Then one day, his luck changed for the better.
When an online post went up about the dog, Megan Bowe, who is a dog rescuer, ran to be by his side. She wanted to see what she could do to help him. She had no idea just how bad he was.
Bowe is the founder of Bowe’s Adoptive Rescue Pups and she said, “He really was on his last leg.” She said that he could barely stand up. Bowe took him to a veterinarian and the results were horrible. He had scabies, a broken tail, and a broken leg. The injuries looked as if a car had hit him.
With a team of veterinarians, Bowe helped get King back on his feet. He needed surgery, medications, and physical therapy. He was able to walk again with all of their help.
After months of care, King would find a wonderful home. Tiana Bisbee had been watching the story on social media and knew he was the pup to add to her family. Bisbee has three other dogs that love King just as much as she does.
Bowe feels very rewarded to see that King is in such a great home. He is as happy and as fluffy as ever! He is the perfect fit for his brand new family.
