My story

FOSTERED IN PENNSYLVANIA

Age: 2 years 

Size: 17 lbs

Estimated breed: Korean Village Dog

Maid Marian requires a home with another friendly resident dog(s), no young children, fenced-in yard

 

Update 11/26: Marian has made huge strides since our last update! She still spends the majority of time in her dog bed, but is totally comfortable with her foster mom petting her and even allows her to pick her up. She is totally house trained and will not go inside the house. Her foster mom carries her outside, and Marian will run back inside when she is done and settle back in her dog bed. She truly adores other dogs and is happiest in the yard with a pack of dogs! She's very submissive with other dogs and is always the first dog to be introduced to new foster dogs in the home. 

 

Update from my foster 7/6: Slowly but surely, Maid Marian is coming around! She no longer lives in her crate, but in a dog bed in a low traffic area of the home. She's still not comfortable enough to leave her safe space and come explore the rest of the house, but that's okay! She can take all the time she needs. She's comfortable with my presence in her room and will even accept gentle pets, though she's still not ready to ask for them herself. She's not quite ready to explore the great outdoors yet, so she does her business directly on a potty pad in her room. She gets super excited when she hears me coming home or when she hears my dogs getting excited and will shriek and cry for you to come visit her so she can see what's going on! She absolutely adores all the puppy foster siblings who come through the house and even acts as a surrogate mama to them while they are here. Though her progress seems limited, for a dog as fearful and shutdown as she was, this girl is making leaps and bounds. 

 

Dog or fox? Whatever she is, Maid Marian sure is cute! This foxy looking girl had a long journey to us. She started her life on a meat farm in Korea, living outside with almost no human interaction. She was rescued by the Humane Society International in June 2020 and brought to the states with hundreds of other dogs from the farm. Marian was extremely shut down and terrified in her new environment, hiding in the back of her kennel. She spent a few months in a boarding facility in Delaware waiting for a rescue to take notice of her, but none did. She was then brought to the Humane Society International's temporary shelter in Hagerstown, MD, where we finally got to meet this sweet little girl. She had waited long enough for her shot, so we brought her into rescue to finally start looking for her forever home. 

 

Marian is still very fearful of people and prefers to hide in her crate when people are near. We are hopeful with plenty of time and patience in her foster home, Marian will begin feeling safe enough to begin trusting humans more. Marian absolutely adores other dogs and gains comfort from her dog friends. She willingly comes out of her crate to happily greet all the other dogs in her foster home. We can't wait to see Marian truly open up and learn how to "dog" again!
