Lana was originally adopted to a US military family in South Korea, but was then left behind when the family went back to the US.
The family said they didn't want her because she's not "friendly", but it was clear she was not treated too well - Lana was painted all over her body (apparently by the family's child) and was so fearful of people.
Lana had separation anxiety when she first joined her #foster family, but after some time and TLC, she has adjusted very well. We are told that her only flaw is giving too many kisses!
Lana walks well on leash, is housetrained, and loves other friendly dogs. Because of her soft personality, Lana really prefers social and gentle dogs (and people).
Lana is UTD on all her shots and is spayed. Her #adoption fee is $350.
*Lana is currently in Korea. If you would like to #adopt her, please email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Adoption fee is $350.
We adopt to residents of Northern VA and Washington DC suburbs only.
*** About us ***
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.
