* 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.

Our adoption process looks like this:

1. Adoption application review by WHDR board
2. Adoption application approval
3. Meet and greet
4. Home safety check
5. Final approval and adoption finalized

Our volunteers, donors and adopters mean the world to us! Without you, we couldn't do what we do - saving the lives of abused, neglected and abandoned dogs and providing them with a loving forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucas, a La Mirada Jindo/Shiba Inu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jindo/Shiba Inu for sale in La Mirada, or seeking a Jindo/Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in La Mirada.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in La Mirada 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 La Mirada 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 Jindo/Shiba Inu breeders who help with Jindo/Shiba Inu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in La Mirada paves the way for another one to be saved.
