Facts about Chico

  • Breed: Maltese/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Hi! My name is Chico.
I am 3 years old and weigh 14lbs.
Once you see my face, you will remember me by my unique nose. It's pretty combination of black and pink. I don't look my best now because the hair was shaved down but it will grow back in no time into lush creamy coat.

When I meet you, I may not approach you right away. Don't get me wrong. It's not that I don't like your company. It's not because that I am scared, either.
Actually, I am dying to get hugs from people and I can sit on the lap whole day.
However, I stayed at shelter then at the foster place long enough to understand that all my friends want the same affection. So, I stand back and wait for my turn patiently. That's why my foster mom calls me Mr. Considerate.
It's been a year since I stayed with my foster mom. I love her dearly but I am ready to have my very own family to share all the fun and love.

--------------------
Chico is currently under foster care in group home setting in Korea. We plan on bringing him to Northern Virginia in late February upon finding a forever family for him.

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.

We adopt to residents of Northern VA and Washington DC suburbs only.

If interested in Chico, 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 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 and up
(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.)
