I know what you're thinking... Killer? Who would name a dog that?! We thought the same thing, honestly.

Killer, who if you haven't figured out yet- is not a killer at all ;) We kept the name, honestly because we found it to be so untrue its kind of funny & he responds well to it.

He was surrendered to the shelter on December 23rd. The day before Christmas Eve. The owners said his name was Killer & they have had him for 15 years!! They said he isn't good with cats, dogs or kids!! I still wanted to give him a chance & go meet him at the kennels.

When I did he let me pet him & while scared, seemed sweet. I decided no way was this little guy going to spend Christmas on cold cement just to be euthanized come early next week. So I took him home, bought him a sweater, new collar & told him- welcome to the first day of your new life :)

Killer has had zero issues with dogs or cats. I would still recommend no young kids as he gets nervous of fast movements & does better with confident attitudes.

He is mostly quiet in the crate, goes to the bathroom outside, occasionally gets playful & rough houses with the other dogs & loves to go on walks :) Our vet doesn't think he is 15- more so 8-10 years old. So hey you could still have another 10 years with this little guy! He has recently started working with our dog trainer & learning the place command, how to heel, wait for his food & building confidence over all.

His adoption fee is $50. He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped & had a recent dental cleaning. He has a heart murmur & takes a pill for this easily. He LOVES veggies & also enjoying a raw diet! His adoption will come with some guidance on training & nutrition!

Let us know if you're interested in meeting this handsome dude :)

About Our Rescue Group...

The Pet Knot was forged to combine efforts of like-minded rescues and volunteers humbly striving to make a dent in the urgent pet over-population crisis. Our talents and strategies promote animal adoptions through online, in-store, and boutique-like options for adopters. All animals receive the highest level of medical care and grooming. Animals also receive appropriate adjustment time and basic social skills in foster homes in preparation for a new home environment. We help all animals including seniors, special needs, and those seemingly unadoptable cases and work diligently to place each in the most appropriate permanent home possible no matter how long it takes. We call ourselves The Pet Knot because not only do we connect people with pets, we keep people with pets.
