Kingsley has been adopted! –
Sweet little Kingsley is a 4 year-old male Shiba Inu, transferred to COSIR from a shelter. He’s had a rough go. Like so many Shibas, he’s an escaper/runner, ending up in and out of the shelter, and multiple homes in his short life. Though his last adopted family reached out to us hoping to get him into rescue, he didn’t get along with their other dogs and they couldn’t keep him contained in their yard. They took him back to the shelter before we had a chance to find him the right home. Fortunately for Kingsley, the shelter was able to hold him long enough for us to find a foster home. He is a resource guarder and reactive to other dogs, so we were extremely lucky to find a home with no other dogs on such short notice; something that is not easy to come by.
Kingsley’s foster dad, Nick, has always loved dogs, including Shibas, and had fostered before. Nick enjoyed fostering a Shiba so much, once he decided the time was right to add a new best friend to his life, he started watching COSIR’s website for the right dog. A few days after Kingsley started to settle into his new home, he was viciously attacked by another dog living in the complex and had to be taken to the emergency vet. Thanks to COSIR’s wonderful donors, his severe lacerations requiring stitches and drain tubes were treated immediately. Though this was a heartbreaking situation, Kingsley’s foster dad took such good care of him, and it made their bond even stronger! So strong, in fact, Nick decided to “foster fail” and adopt Kingsley, once fully recovered from his injuries. That day is now here! Kingsley has had a full recovery and is now living his best life! Congratulations to Kingsley and Nick. Out of dark clouds eventually comes the sun, and their future is bright!
