Aaron looks sweet and majestic, but at young age, he has already experienced and endured so much. He was found malnourished and scared, apparently abused for displaying very normal puppy behaviors such as gnawing on things while teething.
When Aaron was #rescued, he was afraid of everything including enclosed spaces. After much training, he has overcome many of his fears, and doesn't bark as much in his kennel.
Despite what he went through, Aaron has lots of love to give. Aaron is very social and loves to play with other doggy friends, but we noticed that he's really a people-dog! Aaron loves to snuggle and stay next to his human buddies more than doggie friends. We are hoping to find a family who will not only appreciate his gorgeous looks, but also embrace his quirks and loving personality. We wishing to Aaron will do best with a yard that has 6 ft. privacy fencing.
Aaron finished his first round of treatment for heartworms. He is UTD on all his shots and is neutered.
Aaron's #adoption fee is $400.
*Aaron is currently in Korea. If you would like to #adopt him, please email email@example.com with a bit of information about yourself (e.g. your experience as a dog owner, your family and/or other pets, etc.) and your phone number. A HDP volunteer will promptly respond to your email. Thank you!
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.
We adopt to residents of Northern VA and Washington DC suburbs only.

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.
