Max's Story...
Max is 2-year-old, 20 lb boy who just got rescued from a kill-shelter in South Korea.

Max came to the shelter as a stray puppy with his sister Ruby. They were as cute as buttons, but nobody was interested in them in Korea, where only tiny pure-breed dogs are considered "adoptable". As the shelter became overcrowded, Max and Ruby's days were numbered, and they were soon put on the list to be euthanized. Fortunately, that's when Max and Ruby were rescued.

Max's fur was shaved down due to severe matting at the shelter, but it will grow back to a beautiful cream colored coat. He is nervous and fearful since he has never lived outside of the shelter. He will need to learn how to be a household pet, including skills like walking on a leash and going potty outside, but if you are up for it, he will give back mountains more!

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.

*Max will be coming from South Korea to the Fairfax, VA area to find his forever home. If you are interested in Max, please email us with a little info about you: your family, your other pets, your experience as a dog owner (which breed, etc.), where you live (which city? home or apt?), etc. including a telephone number where we can reach you. Thank you very much, and we hope that Donghae Paws can help you bring a furry family member into your life.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Fairfax Cairn Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cairn Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Fairfax, or seeking a Cairn Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Fairfax.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Fairfax already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Fairfax breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cairn Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Cairn Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Fairfax paves the way for another one to be saved.
