Meet King, a 2-year-old, 78-pound fawn pit bull mix. King had a rough life and had to learn to be a tough guy to get through it. But since coming to the SPCA shelter, he has learned to like the people here and even some of the other dogs. Now, he is an energetic guy who enjoys running around the yard and playing with toys and would love to find a family to play and run with him. Because of his size and strength, he may do best in a home without small children so he doesn’t accidentally hurt anyone. He is very food motivated and would like to go to a home where the treats are plentiful. If you are looking for a big goofy guy to join your family, he might just be the one for you, but if you have other dogs at home, please bring them up for a meet-and-greet so they can check each other out. King has been neutered, microchipped and is up to date on his age-appropriate vaccinations. #151624
