Dustin's Story...
To MEET Dustin - fill out an application. Cut and paste this link into your web browser:

Apply to FOSTER:

Foster parents have the first option to adopt. We will provide all you need to foster.

Weight: 40 lbs

Age: 1 year and 4 months

Personality: Dustin is friendly and sweet. He has a great personality, loves people, kids and other dogs. However we recommend that until the dogs get used to each other, proper introduction and supervision in the beginning are recommended

Coat: The Jindo are naturally incredibly clean dogs. They have self-cleaning coats and do not need to be bathed frequently. They even groom themselves like cats. The downside of this is that they also shed profusely, especially in hot weather with their double coat. Regular brushing will reduce excessive shedding. These dogs have no special grooming needs, making them fairly low maintenance..

Training: He knows basic commands and is very smart and a quick learner.

Potty trained: Yes

Health: Healthy with up to date vaccination

History: Dustin was saved from a high kill shelter in South Korea where he was scheduled to be euthanized. Jindo mixes often end up at a high kill shelter or being a victim of the dog meat because there are too many in Korea.

Fostered in: Imperial Animal Hospital in La Mirada.
** Southern California Applicants only.

Type of home: Jindos are very intelligent, active and love to make a strong bond with their family. He will do great with a family with kids or other dogs who can spent time with him or an active single.

Crate trained: Yes

Good with Dogs:Yes ( Proper introduction with new dogs is recommended)
Good with Kids: Yes
Good with Cats: Unknown

Adoption fee (non-refundable): $300

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dustin, a La Mirada Jindo/Shiba Inu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jindo/Shiba Inu for sale in La Mirada, or seeking a Jindo/Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in La Mirada.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in La Mirada 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 La Mirada 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 Jindo/Shiba Inu breeders who help with Jindo/Shiba Inu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in La Mirada paves the way for another one to be saved.
