Weight: 37 lbs
Age: 2 years old
Personality: Lucas is a gentle and sweet dog but needs sometime to warm up to new people and surroundings. He is more timid with men and will take longer time to open up to them. He is very smart and well behaved around the house. He does better when he has another (friendly) dog around him. Coming from a high kill shelter in South Korea, Lucas probably had some unhappy experiences that made him timid and lose his self confidence. This handsome dog will be a great companion to a family who can give him time and love until he can open up and be himself again.
Coat: Jindo does shed and will need regular brushing. Minimum grooming required.
Training: He is learning basic commands.
Potty trained: Yes
Health: Healthy / Up to date with vaccination
History: Lucas was rescued from a high kill shelter in South Korea where he was scheduled to be euthanized. Jindo mixes like Lucas has a very slim chance of getting adopted in South Korea.
Fostered in: West LA, CA
Type of home: Lucas is afraid of loud noises so he will do better in a quiet environment. We are looking for a family who can provide stable and loving environment for this shy dog.
He is not quiet a jogger or hiker and does not do well on walks outside of the busy streets. He needs a backyard where he can run around without being exposed to loud noises. Since he is more sociable when there's a friendly dog with him, a family who is looking to add another furry companion will be good as well.
Crate trained: Yes

Good with Kids: Yes over 12 years old.
Good with Cats: No
