Around here, we truly believe that dogs are heroes. Kiko is one excellent example: this Pibble took a bullet to the head for his owner. And he survived.

Now, Kiko is searching for his forever home. After surviving a bullet ricocheting off of his head during an attempted home invasion, Kiko’s owner ran into some financial problems. Sadly, Kiko was not brought to his family’s new home.

We covered Kiko’s miraculous survival a few months ago, and now we want to help him find his new forever family.

This 14-year-old pup is loyal, happy, adores loving pets and rubs, and hanging out on his dog bed. Since Kiko is a senior, it’s best that he live in an apartment or house that is not a walk-up. He should be the only pet, though he says he could be happy with another very calm senior like himself.

Kiko is also deaf, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be your true companion through and through. He warms up quickly to physical affection and doesn’t let his deafness get him down. And neither should you!

In addition to this pup’s sweet and darling nature, he’s now the star of his very own Instagram! @king__kiko shows off Kiko’s royal disposition and delightfully adorable personality!
