Gigi's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Gigi's Story...
Hi, I’m Gigi. After 11 years, I was surrendered to a high kill shelter with my brother Coco, when one of our owners died and the other felt she could no longer care for us. I don’t know why because Coco and I don’t ask for much. All we need is food, short walks and nice soft beds to nap all day long on. I was so sad when I was in the shelter and for the first several days in boarding. I’ve never know anything but my home. I’m so glad I had Coco with me. He’s a guy so he put up a tough exterior, but I know he was sad too. I’m slowly getting used to my new temporary home with Coco at Rutherford Animal Hospital. See Treasured k9s does not have a foster home for us. This has been quite an adjustment but I’m learning to trust lots of new people and they even give us lots of good treats. I make sure to let Coco taste the treats first before I know they are safe to eat. During the day, Coco and I go to work upstairs in the HR office. We like working. We also follow people to the supply room and supervise while they take inventory. In the afternoons different people come and take us for walks. We’re easy to walk and like to go for slow strolls. At night we go back to our kennel run for a good night’s sleep. My brother and I are a package deal. We are very bonded to each other and I couldn’t imagine life without him. Don’t worry about my age. Jindos live to be at least 16 years old. Please consider giving me and Coco a home. We would like to be the only dogs in the home and cats may not be safe around us. Little barking dogs really irritate me, so none of those, please. We would prefer no small children since we are old and startle easily while sleeping. We’re quiet and if you work long hours, we’ll be happy to sleep all day. When you come home, you’ll only have to take us for a quick walk. We’re low maintenance and represent all that is good about Jindos. Thinking about adopting a Jindo? Try us on for size. You’ll see why Jindos are so special. Just like a fine wine, Jindos get better with age. Training? Well we’re 11 years old. We’ve figured life out and are no problem at all. We couldn’t be any easier. Please adopt me and Coco!
Jindos are a rare breed from Korea and researching the breed is highly recommended. Experience with Akitas, Shiba Inus, Sharpei, Chows, Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, American Eskimos and a similar Spitz breed is preferred.
Knowledge of the Nothing in Life is Free theory and/or Cesar Millan’s methods are essential for a successful adoption. If you are interested in adopting Coco & Gigi, please visit www.treasuredk9s.org submit an adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gigi, a West New York Jindo dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jindo for sale in West New York, or seeking a Jindo dog from a breeder in West New York.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West New York already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a West New York breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Jindo breeders who help with Jindo rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West New York paves the way for another one to be saved.
