Kwan is 3 years and 17 pounds
Although far from a puppy, Kwan and Yeri saved from a life of loneliness and isolation being tied outside for all of their life. He has no hair under his neck because his collar was too tight. (We think he is between 2 and 3 years old) He is a 17 pounds, German Shepherd face with Corgi body. He is THE MOST lovable, kind heart animal we have ever met! He loves people, other dogs, long walks, and TREATS!! He has done NOTHING wrong in the week we have had him. He is so eager to learn and please. How this dear, sweet, lovable soul could have been left outside for years without anyone to love is beyond my imagination! His personality is absolutely outstanding!
We have fallen in love with this cute, happy, friendly, do-no-wrong guy!! He doesn't know how to play, or go up stairs, or get in and out of the car. But as he begins to trust us more, I know he will learn!
Prior to rescue, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period as the dog learns about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with children under 8 years old; homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as house training and leash walking may often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.
*Kwan will be coming to Northern Va area to find his forever home from Donghae, Korea.
