AKIN's Info...

I am already neutered and up to date with shots.

AKIN's Story...
Akin is an approximately 4 year old male. He is current on vaccinations and neutered.

Akin was rescued from the Dog Meat Trade in Thailand by the Elfesworld Rescue. Akin is a very loving dog. He is very affectionate and playful. He has a lovely personality and will engage with anyone who comes his way. He will put his paw on you and try to kiss you - yes on the first date.. :) He looks like an adorable mix of Jack Russell and Corgi. Founder, Dawn Trimmel met him on a visit to Elfes World in 2014 and he captured her heart right away.

Akin was rescued in 2013 from the brutal dog meat trade in Thailand. After his smugglers truck was seized by the Royal Thai Police he was taken to the Thai Government Shelter Khemmerat where he would not have survived long. Luckily his good looks most likely saved his life as a kind sponsor saw his picture and paid to have him medically treated and flow to ElfesWorld on the island Koh Samui. There he has lived outdoors with over 600 other dogs for over 3 years. Elfe gives as much love and attention as she can to the dogs in her care but there simply isn't enough time in a day...... The reality most dogs are starved for human attention. It breaks Elfe's heart to not be able to provide more to them. Some dogs like Akin are especially human orientated and will whine when you leave her kennel run which is even more heartbreaking. In addition, small dogs like Akin sometimes are picked on by the larger dogs since it's still a survival of the fittest; environment. Elfe would like nothing more than to see sweet Akin have a home of his own with lots of love and attention - a fulfilled life. Luckily we had a flight volunteer traveling to Chicago on October 21st who was willing to act as a flight volunteer. Akin he should have no trouble finding a loving home here as he is so adorable and corgi mixes are very popular. I mean really - how could anyone resist his sweet little face?

Although Akin gets along with other dogs he can be ;untrusting; at first as he has had many bad encounters with other dogs. It may take time for him to become friends with another dog. But as usual time and patience are the key to success.

If you are interested in adopting AKIN, please contact Dawn at 414-426-4148 or email @ trimmel@usa.net

Why Adoption is a Great Option

AKIN, a Wonder Lake Jack Russell Terrier/Corgi dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jack Russell Terrier/Corgi for sale in Wonder Lake, or seeking a Jack Russell Terrier/Corgi dog from a breeder in Wonder Lake.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wonder Lake 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 Wonder Lake 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 Jack Russell Terrier/Corgi breeders who help with Jack Russell Terrier/Corgi rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wonder Lake paves the way for another one to be saved.
