CAN YOU HELP

He has sadly begun to deteriorate. 18 months in a municipal animal shelter has worn King down. King is losing weight, losing hair and losing hope. King has sadly spent more than a third of his life behind bars through no fault of his own. I am simply heartbroken for this boy who has been waiting much too long to be the love of someone’s life.
King is 4-year-old male pit bull mix who was surrendered to @tohanimalshelter in July of 2017. He has not even had one single meet and greet the entire time he has been behind bars. I honestly can’t understand why.
King's nickname at the shelter is "the meatball" because he's just that, a lovable, goofy meatball. When he sees a person, whether it be old friend or complete stranger, his butt wiggles with excitement. This boy is eager to love and eager to please.
King is smart, knowing several commands including: sit, touch, leave it and is constantly learning more! He is housetrained and good on a leash. King will also need to be the KING of his home, the only pet, but he has so much love to give that you will need to look no further than him.
King has no problem walking past other dogs on paths and walkways, he just doesn’t like sharing his personal space with another dog up close. Did we mention he loves to snuggle? Brains, adorability and snuggle power…. this boy truly has it all! #adoptdontshop, #shelterdog, #pitbullsofinstagram, #nydog, #hempsteadanimalshelter, #friendsoftohanimalshelter, #tohas, #tohanimalshelter
