King, a 12-year-old senior dog, had a difficult journey in life. He spent most of his years as a stray, living each day, trying to keep himself alive.
One day, King lost one of his front legs after being hit by a speeding car, which made his daily life in the streets more complicated than it was before. Marley’s Mutts Dog Rescue group gave King the life-saving operation that he needed and assisted the senior dog in finding him a new home.
The rescue group knew that it is going to be a challenge to get King adopted into the right home because aside from being an old dog, he also does not have his other leg. Despite the rescue group’s efforts in having King adopted, no one wanted him.
However, it all changed when Rocky Kanaka, a TV host of the Dog’s Day Out series, heard King and his rescuer’s heartbreaking plea for help. Rocky decided to feature King in his show and made sure that the dog experiences a special day that is one for the books.
The Dog’s Day Out is a TV show where he takes shelter dogs out for the day and showers them with love and gifts. Many fans of the series appreciate and feel inspired by how he treats the dogs who have yet to find their families.
Aside from featuring the dogs on Rocky’s show, it is also the chance for the pups to be seen by many people interested in adopting dogs. His show has helped many shelter dogs find their happy ending – by being adopted.
Rocky treated King for a massive shopping spree, where whatever the dog touches, Rocky adds it to King’s cart and purchases it. The only thing that Rocky did not buy is a hamster.
Since King’s shopping spree went public and became viral, an interested adopter contacted Rocky if she could take the dog into her home. After King’s much-needed exposure, he got adopted and lived happily ever after with his new mom.
