Kingston came into our care with a fearful deposition. He seemed unfamiliar with being on leash and was nervous when introducing to others. But he is steadily and quickly gaining confidence. He has shown to be very affectionate and loving. He loves cuddle time!
Kingston enjoys walks and his toys! Kingston would make a great addition to any family! He may take a bit to warm up with smaller children, just because of his fearful character but once he is comfortable, be prepared for endless kisses!
Kingston is waiting for his furever family, and he cannot wait to show off how well he behaves!
