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.
