* Southern California Applicants Only

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 Dogs: Depends on the personality of other dogs.
Good with Kids: Yes over 12 years old.
Good with Cats: No

Adoption fee (non-refundable): $ 300

All dogs are fully vetted, tested for heartworm, microchipped, and up to date with vaccinations.

About Our Rescue Group...

Welcome Home Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer, 501c(3) non-profit organization that exists solely on donations. We are a group of dedicated individuals working to change the ways our society deals with animal welfare. We are a group of both experienced dog owners/handlers and first timers, who believe all dogs deserve a good home. We need donations, foster homes, supplies including dog food, flea medication, leashes, harnesses, collars, dog beds, bowls and dog crates. We need volunteers to organize fundraising events, help socialize and attend training classes with our dogs and many other necessary activities.

What truly matters to us, is that we make a difference in the lives of abused, neglected and homeless dogs. To help reduce the number of dogs in shelters, Welcome Home Dog Rescue offers rescue and adoption services specific to the adopter’s needs and lifestyles so that both ends of the leash can find a happy home together.

Although rehoming each abandoned or neglected dog is challenging, at Welcome Home Dog Rescue, we believe that each saved life makes it worth the hard work! We believe in spay/neuter, vaccination and microchipping of adoptable pets and word-of-mouth education. We believe that animals are family members who deserve lifelong care, affection and medical treatment. It is our fervent wish to end and prevent needless suffering of animals.
