Meet King! A sweet and beautiful three year old neutered male Shepherd mix. King loves to be petted and go for walks. Even though he is missing one front leg he walks pretty well on a leash and off leash. As any Shepherd dog he is a bit strong and a bit territorial with other dogs, so a strong owner with experience is ideal.
King’s story is very sad. He was abandoned in rural Guatemala and was rescued after two weeks on being on the street on his own. He already had three legs at the time. We don’t know exactly why he was abandoned and why he only has three legs. What we know is that he is fully recovered and will always wag his tail to go for a walk with you.
King will be coming to the Seattle area in mid-February. If you would like to meet him, you will need to fill out an application first. Please email to request one.
There is an adoption fee as we are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. 100% of the adoption fee is used to cover King's travel expenses to Seattle and to support more dogs at our rescue. We currently house over 300 dogs at our shelter. See more information at www.animalaware.org.
AWARE (Animal Welfare Association - Rescue/Education) is a non-profit, non-governmental charitable organization, founded in Guatemala in 1998. AWARE is financed solely through membership subscriptions and private donations. The principal activity of AWARE is running spay and neuter campaigns. We have a permanent on-site spay/neuter clinic, run monthly spay and neuter campaigns using volunteer vets, and work to raise awareness for animal welfare in Guatemala. We also rescue and rehabilitate hurt animals. We believe in education as a sustainable means to embetter the lives of all animals, and we work to educate students in local schools about the topic.
Adoption fee will vary by dog.
An adoption application and contract is required.
All our adoptable dogs come from Guatemala. A poor country where dogs are malnourished due to poverty or are abandoned due to lack of appreciation if they are not pure breeds.
We are now serving the Seattle area thru a small network of volunteers to offer different and beautiful dogs.
