Pet Information



A4755742 King is a plumply regal, self-assured 8-year-old black-and-tan neutered male German Shepherd who was abandoned with his buddy Lucky [A4182766] at the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center on October 1st because his owner was moving and wasn’t taking the dogs with him. Weighing 90 lbs—and needing to shed about 15 lbs via a good, nutritious diet sans snacks—King the chunky monkey has a low-to-medium energy, likes his pal Lucky very much, shows signs of being house trained, loves being touched and getting affection, and is a confident fellow. Staff noted that his hind quarters tend to go out from underneath him and that he has a hard time getting up from a lying position. This could be arthritis or some other ailment, and it’s probably exacerbated by his chubbiness. Like his buddy Lucky, King has fly strike and thus may have spent much time outside. King appears to be bonded with Lucky, but we know how hard it is to adopt or rescue two large dogs together, and we feel they’d do fine singly, adapting easily to being in a new, loving family without the other. King will make an excellent indoor pet and companion for any individual or family that loves this wonderful breed and wants to make him comfortable and valued.



About United Hope for Animals LA

About Our Rescue Group...

United Hope for Animals is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to creating a world where our relationship with animals is guided by compassion and responsibility. We actively work toward bringing an end to the needless suffering of companion animals through community-based programs here at home and across the border.

The statistics are sobering: Together, one unspayed female dog, her unaltered mate and their offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in six years. Even with its prevalent spay/neuter programs, the United States euthanizes more than 6 million dogs and cats each year. Through our Shelter Support Program, we work in partnership with local shelters to reduce this number by raising public awareness about the overpopulation crisis faced by shelters, facilitating rescue and adoption of sheltered animals, and, in the process, bringing identity and dignity to the many lives that would otherwise pass anonymously through an overburdened animal control system.

Across the border, we sponsor a regular Spay/Neuter clinic to provide spay/neuter services to families who could not otherwise afford them, and through our Pererra program work to provide a humane and gentle passing to pets who have no other options.
