For King, a 12-year-old mongrel, life could not be called smooth sailing as he has experienced one tragedy after another.
He was first abandoned by his first owner and left to roam the streets and endure the weather elements.

To make matters worse, King was hit by a car which resulted in him losing one of his front legs after surgery.
He was then taken in by 'Marley’s Mutts,’ an animal rescue group, but finding a forever home for poor King was very difficult.
His old age coupled with his one missing leg made it a herculean task to rehome him, and things weren't looking good for the poor mutt.
However, things took a better turn for King when Rocky Kanaka, the host of the show 'Dogs Day Out', heard about his story.
The show is dedicated to taking shelter dogs out and giving them the perfect day, which more often than not results in them getting adopted.
For King's day out, Rocky decided to spare no expense and declared that he would buy King whatever he touched!
Not surprisingly, the first thing the dog laid his paw on was some dog food, after which he went on to sniff out some toys and treats.
At the end of their shopping period, King had a shopping cart filled with an assortment of toys and treats, and his tail could not stop wagging.

Amongst other toys, he became attached to a dinosaur, and it was just so cute.
The day out with King worked its magic, and a few days later, a lady came forward after seeing the shopping video and decided to adopt him.
This was perhaps the best gift of all!
He looked so happy when he met his new mom for the first time, and it is safe to say that King has finally found love and happiness once again.
He was very excited to head to his forever home and start a new and better chapter in his life.
Good luck, King!
