Hello! My name is Bora, which means purple in Korean.
Why do I have a Korean name? That's because I was born and have lived all my short life of 1 year in Korea. Of course, it is my favorite color, too. Ohhhh, I love that Petfinder is using lots of purple on the website. I feel lucky already and I am sure I will find my mom and dad here very soon.

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 Hope for Donghae Paws(VIRGINIA)

About Our Rescue Group...

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.

We are an all volunteer run rescue with no paid members and NO FACILITY. We rely solely on foster homes provided by our generous Volunteers who keep the dogs in their homes until adopted.

Our mission is to find US homes for mixed, handicapped, senior, and large-breed dogs whose chances of being adopted in their native Korea are very low.

Our Adoption Process...

01.Adoption Requirements:
- Be at least 21 years of age
- Have a valid ID with current address
- All adults in your household must consent on
adoption.
- If you rent, you must verify that you’re allowed to
have a dog where you live (the landlord’s name
and phone number)

02. Adoption Application: Please complete the adoption application form thoroughly.

03. Home Check: Our volunteers will visit your home to provide necessary information, as well as to inspect whether your home is a good environment for the adoptive dog.

04. Adoption Fees: $300
(The adoption fee will be regarded as a partial reimbursement paid by the adopter to HDP for the overall expenses being spent for the dog, including, but not limited to medical examination, vaccinations, custom, and transportation charges. In reality, such adoption fees will be spent to bring the next dog from Korea.)
