Current Status: Available
King's Story: King was found stray/abandoned and unclaimed within a Berkshire council pound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. King is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. King is in boarding kennels near Guildford whilst he awaits his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
King's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information:
We were asked to help King find his new family.

King is very handsome and although initially nervous as he came to us, he settled quickly and has been enjoying walks with our volunteers. He does seem to like a calm canine companion to walk with, he walked well with Victor last week.

Im lucky enough to know King from his previous life before arriving in rescue.
He likes the car and to watch the world out the window.
King enjoys the company of other dogs but he is still young and can get over excited so best to have a calm walking companion.
He can be initially nervous but once he knows you he’s a very loving, funny boy who loves a cuddle, he will even sit on your lap if he gets the chance.
King walks beautifully however if he does get too over excited he will jump up and turn into a bit of a nutter so I find it’s best to just keep him calm and quiet on his walks and have a fuss once back in the kennels.
I really adore this dog and look forward to seeing him progress with all the hard work they put in with their dogs at RR. He has had a tough start and I hope he finds his happiness quickly ❤️

Thank you for that Freya. I walked this lovely boy today. He had only arrived at Guildford yesterday, so I was the first person to go in his kennel. He was a little wary at first, and the surroundings were all new to him. I thought a spell in the paddock first would help him release some stress. As you can see, he enjoyed a good run around, I just wish we had a bigger paddock, so that he could really go. Then we had a lovely walk with Ivor and he was so so good, not really interested in other dogs and walked really nicely. He prances so gracefully, he really is stunning!

I had a fantastic walk with this strikingly handsome boy today - just look at those lovely eyes! King was great on the lead, responding well to me asking him to steady through some slippery mud. He was interested in what else was going on, such as squirrels, but I never got a full on fast pull from him, he was just happy to watch and then sniff. King took treats gently and does a lovely lean in to you if you tickle his back/rear end.
This boy seems really special, I hope he isn't waiting too long for a new home.

I had the pleasure of walking King for the first time this morning. What a handsome soft fellow he is! He’s very elegant and just floats along like a ballet dancer.

He is VERY good on the lead - doesn’t pull, great around traffic, and not bothered about passing other dogs. He seems a little more hesitant passing people but still open to tentatively saying ‘hi’ to anyone he passes.

He likes to spend time hunting out interesting smells and he did find a few he wanted to roll in but can be easily discouraged.

He does have bouts of youthful exuberance but calms down pretty quickly both on the lead and in the paddock.

He is super polite when receiving treats - no jumping or gobbling, just gently takes them out of your hand. He likes a good cuddle too and it doesn’t take much for him to lean in for a cuddle. He clearly has a lot of love to give and would be a super dog in the right home with plenty of space to (elegantly) gallivant around in.
