My foster mom says I am too cheerful and talk too much, but I can't see how that is possible. I am just so happy everyday. I don't moan and groan about the past. It is true that life has been a little rough to me. I was at a filthy city shelter when I found I was pregnant at not even one year old. That's when my foster mom took me and my soon-to-be-born babies under her wing. Under her care, I gave birth to beautiful babies and now I am fully rested. See? Life is good!
Now all I need is a nice family with who I can share all my love and happiness.
Can you be the ONE?
Bora is one year old and weighs 12 pounds.
She is currently fostered in a group home setting in Korea. We plan on bringing her to Northern Virginia in late February upon finding a forever family for her.
Prior to rescue, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization and it takes time for them to learn about life as a family pet. Common skills such as house training and leash walking may often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.
We typically do not adopt to homes with children under 8 years old.
A home check is mandatory before adoption.
Adoption fee is $300.
If interested in Bora, please email us with a little info about you, your family, your other pets, your experience as a dog owner (which breed, etc.), where you live (which city, home or apt?), etc. including telephone number. Thank you.
*** About us ***
Hope For Donghae Paws(HDP) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to bringing rescue dogs from Korea to the US and finding permanent homes for them. It is true there are many animal lovers in Korea, but still many dogs suffer and are killed for food.
Our mission is to find US homes for mixed-breed dogs whose chances of being adopted in their native Korea are very low.
