*** Watch Louie sing! He is the one on the right in the video.

This 1-year-old, 30 lb boy is one of the three brothers rescued on the brink of getting sold to dog meat market in Korea. The "owner" of the brothers had tied them in an abandoned house, fed them only occasionally, and waited for them to grow big enough to sell.

Now, all three brothers are safe under foster care, but still need home they can call their own. They are neutered and fully vaccinated.

In spite of the rough beginning, Louie is very affectionate and loves to be around people. He yearns for human touch so much that he chooses to be petted over tasty treats. Louie loves to sing and always has smile on his face, which makes you smile, too.

He is the most shy one of the three and needs a little more time to open up. Once he does, however, he will be an amazing companion. His foster mom in Korea is working on building his confidence and he is getting more comfortable with the world around him everyday.

He can be a clever escape artist and needs a home with a fenced yard. Someone who is experienced with dogs would be preferable. He will do best when provided a stable home with routine exercise, play and training.

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.

*Louie will be coming from South Korea to the Fairfax, VA area to find his forever home. If you are interested in Louie, 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 contact you.

About Hope for Donghae Paws(VIRGINIA)

About Our Rescue Group...

Hope For Donghae Paws(HDP) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to bringing rescue dogs from Korea to the US and finding permanent homes for them. It is true there are many animal lovers in Korea, but still many dogs suffer and are killed for food.

We are an all volunteer run rescue with no paid members and NO FACILITY. We rely solely on foster homes provided by our generous Volunteers who keep the dogs in their homes until adopted.

Our mission is to find US homes for mixed, handicapped, senior, and large-breed dogs whose chances of being adopted in their native Korea are very low.
