Kiko stole my heart. The minute I met him, I was won over. That is what he tends to do when people meets them, he makes them fall in love. Yet no one has fallen enough in love with this sweet hero to take him home.
BarkPost just posted an article about this sweet boy as well. How is it that so many outlets are writing about this dog, and begging to find him a home. Help me, Mighty Mutts, and BarkPost find not only Kiko, but the other dogs out there a home too. To see the article about Kiko head over to http://barkpost.com/hero-barkbuddy-shot-head/
While working with Mighty Mutts over the summer, Kiko was one of my favorite dogs to photograph. There he was, every Saturday, with a smile on his face, waiting and hoping that the next person that pet his head was his forever. That still has not happened.
Kiko’s backstory is incredible, and will make you fall in love before you even meet him. Kiko is a fourteen year old bulldog mix who made the news about two years ago. At the age of 12, Kiko sprang into action to protect his dad from a home invasion. During this heroic he was shot at point blank in the head. Miraculously, he survived and is now fully recovered despite having lost his hearing. Unfortunately, since then, his dad fell on some hard times and was unable to continue caring for him. Now, this hero dog needs to find someone who can be his hero and give him the best life has to offer for his remaining years. Kiko is a gentle boy who needs a quiet home where he can spend the rest of his life just being loved and taken care of. He is believed to be deaf so he will need an owner who understands his needs and is patient He is neutered, housebroken, and well mannered, but due to his experiences, it is preferred that he is the only animal in the house.
Now it is our turn. It is our turn to be a hero to Kiko. It is our turn to share, post, tweet, and talk, to get the word out there about Kiko. It is our turn to find him a loving and incredible home for him to spend the rest of his life in. It is our turn to protect him. If you know of anyone who would make the perfect home for Kiko, please reach out to Mighty Mutts. And please come meet him and all the other amazing dogs, every Saturday on the corner of Union Square.
