Lisa & Maggie's Story...
Lisa & Maggie's Story...
Maggie and Lisa were born at a pound in South Korea last November, apart of a litter of 8 whose mom was rescued from a meat farm pregnant. Parvo struck the litter and Lisa and Maggie were the only ones to survive. Survive, yes... but were they really living? No. They slowly got bigger and bigger until they no longer fit in their wire cage which they shared - the only home they ever knew. When they outgrew their cage they started to get stressed and eventually began spinning in circles. This behavior was heartbreaking to see from the staff and volunteers there and they knew they had to get those dogs out. When SDH decided to help rescue them about a month or so ago, we got them spayed and then they went and lived at boarding facility the last few weeks, slowly gaining confidence in the real world before traveling to their new homes here in Oregon. They have been learning what it means to play in a yard, enjoy fresh air, and have freedom beyond the wires of a cage. They are also now interested by people, coming up to you and allowing you to pet them. They are still skittish at times and need some time to continue to learn life in America and how to be dogs ☺ They are gentle & loving. They are curious. They are smart like german shepherds and should be easily trainable. They are an open book and learning every day. These girls are spayed & vaccinated and are 9 months old. They do not know how to walk on a leash, they do need a fenced yard and they speak Korean. They are much smaller than they appear in pictures. These two have only had each other and I would adopt them out separately, but my goal would be to adopt them together if possible. They are very bonded and are great companions. One sister is a little more daring and the other sister follows suit. I asked my foster for an update this morning and here is what she said: “Lisa (fawn color and is more lean) loves to be petted when she can over come her fear and allow someone to get close to her. Very sweet dog. Both are very smart. Maggie (reddish) is the alpha of the pack. Playful personality. Likes toys. It's really interesting just when I think I have figured them out they flip-flop. One day Lisa is super brave and grounded then a few hours later Lisa is running away and Maggie is in charge. Food... Lisa gives up her food to Maggie so I am trying to watch that and encourage Lisa to eat. Lisa is thinner than Maggie. They have no food aggression at all. They don't have any issues with my dogs. They don't really play with them either. They are in their own little bubble just focused on each other. They are fine with fine 15 yr old. “ I also asked our driver who picked them up from the Seattle airport and drove them to Bend (they were not kenneled – just in her back seat for this drive) her thoughts – here is what she said: “The shepherds are so cool. One is more social and snuggled a few times. They are both in shock but you can tell they are great companions. They are smart like a german shepherd so they need someone that can train them. The dogs will want that. I can see them being a help dog. The nice thing is they are small so if someone loves the breed but not the big size then these 2 girls are perfect.”
We are a new non-profit whose mission is to help street dogs worldwide. We currently are working w/ rescues in South Korea, Mexico and St. Thomas Virgin Islands who rescue street dogs in their countries. Once these street dogs are rescued they are spayed/neutered, given all medical treatment and vaccines and fostered until they are adopted or picked up from rescues like us, Street Dog Hero, where we will fly them to Oregon to be fostered until they find their forever homes. We also rescue dogs from high kill shelters: specifically in Texas and Miami, FL Please be a hero to these dogs and give them the life and love they deserve!
