Facts about Zia

  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less

Zia (formerly known as Sil) is a 3 year-old Shih Tzu mix, weighing 9 pounds. She was covered with ticks when she was rescued from a street with Blossom. Zia and Blossom were always together, wandering around the street and eating food from bowls of outside dogs. Zia is very docile and friendly to anyone she meets. She also gets along well with other dogs too. She is a little bit shy now, but will be very affectionate and playful when she finds her forever home!

*All of our dogs are in Korea, waiting to be adopted. We will not bring them until we secure a permanent home. Please inquire at the link below:

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.
