Facts about Mr. Peabody

  • Breed: Maltese
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Mr. Peabody was found as a stray on the street in Korea in a small southern city by 911 dispatcher. He was nicely groomed and were very people friendly, so they surely expected that the owner would show up for him soon. It's been a month at a local shelter, and we did not hear from his previous family about him. He is a bit nervous being around other dogs/ animals, but he gets used to them once he gets introduced slowly. He is estimated to be about 2 years old weighing about 4.6 Kg, and is fully up-to-date with vaccinations. He is scheduled to be neutered soon, and after his procedure, he is available for adoption immediately. We named him Mr. Peabody because he too is waiting for a new adoptive parents to embrace him and love him forever. Mr. Peabody is currently staying at a shelter, and he will only be brought to the US when we secure a permanent home in the US.

About Bodam Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue dogs in need from Korea. Dogs with backgrounds of homelessness, cruelty and neglect are rescued from off the streets or animal control centers where they face certain euthanasia.
Sometimes, our dogs are from the local meat trade, and they literally had only a few moments to spare if they were not rescued by us.
So we provide voluntary quarantine at local foster homes in Korea where they are rehabilitated emotionally and physically. Dogs are given TLC along with all the veterinary care they need to recover and thrive, including spay/neuter and vaccination. We then bring them back to US where they are adopted out into permanent homes via various resources.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please note that the application does not have a shelter or other physical location. All of our animals are cared for in a shelter in Korea or in foster homes. We will not bring the dog if we do not secure a permanent home in the US, so we will be screening your credentials/ readiness prior to finalizing adoptions.

Please email us with any specific questions you have on our dogs, and one of our volunteers will get back to you.

Thank you.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Fill out attached application. We are interested to know how committed you are to the dog you are interested in. Please understand that we bring our dogs to US with an interest to find them forever family. We are not going to match our dogs to someone who will give them up because they are not house broken/ trained. You have to be willing to train them and love them.

2. After receiving the application, one of us will contact you to schedule a home visit. We are interested to know where our dogs will play, sleep. Please note that our dogs, regardless of their sizes, are to be indoor dogs only.

3. Conduct Home Visit. We will discuss and answer any questions about our process. We do have post adoption requirement, which is getting updates of our dogs after his arrival. This will be done at minimum of once a month basis for three months (or as often as you would like to show off), and every 3 month up to a year. This is a way that we monitor how the dog is adjusting with you and your family.

4. Dogs will be taken to the local vet for the final paperwork for the quarantine process.

5. Make travel arrangement from Korea to US cities.

6. Dogs arrive area airport. We expect you to be at the airport to receive your new family.

Our adoption fee is $350 for dogs less than 20 lbs.
