Please note we do NOT adopt to homes with small animals including small dogs. No Exceptions.
Also Norsled does not adopt outside the Northern California/ Central California area.
Jayu is a very very special and unique girl. Born into captivity in a Korean dog meat factory in 2015, she was destined for something horrible before being rescued by Humane Society International in late 2015, then sent to San Francisco where NorSled claimed her. Factory 5 in the Wonju Province was a puppy mill and dog meat farm. All dogs were rescued, many purebreds, and Jayu herself is a Husky and Korean Jindo mix. She's on the small side, with beautiful redwood colored fur, piercing blue eyes, and such a silly mischievous smile! I have fostered her since Norsled pulled her in June of 2016. She came to me feral and I have spent a lot of time with her, a lot of love, and we've made so much progress! She does need a very special home that will understand her and be willing to continue to work with her.
She has come so far! She knows and responds to her name, goes outside AND inside upon command, and is potty trained for outside. Jayu also LOVES kids- my 9-year-old son was the first human she kind of bonded with- and she would best go to a home with gentle respectful kids to bond with. She absolutely needs other dog(s) in her furever home. My huskies love her energetic play and having other young dogs to play with really helps her come out of her shell. They play so crazy and cute! Jayu is, and may not ever be, a super cuddly or affectionate girl. At a year and a half old there is still plenty of time, but her future home will need to be ok with this. However, she loves to hang out near you! Follows me in the yard, almost always wants to be close, sleep on a dog bed a few feet away, and loves laying at my feet and even turns over for tummy foot pets! She has a distrust of hands that im still working on, and seems to be her biggest hurdle. Recently she licked peanut butter off a finger and that was huge! Jayu has always been sweet and submissive, never aggressive, and her issue with hands she just backs away. Though often im able to give her head scratches and pets when she's not looking, and she leans into these and loves them! She makes a fuss about running if you try to pet her but she lets herself get caught and then pets, brushing, nail trims etc happen easily.
Jayu has had some training on a harness but needs a lot more. Eventually she may be able to be walked but her furever home will have to bridge these final gaps to earn her trust fully, which is very close to happening. She will be a wonderful cute and funny girl to the right home, and she has so much more potential, if you give fully to her she will give back to you and you won't regret it!
