Story
Meet Maggie, A Wonder Woman Wearing a Catwoman Mask 🐶 Once a volunteer accidently dropped her leash and let her run away. Within minutes, Maggie returned on her own and gave the volunteer a big hug. She even brought a stick as a peace offering. It is amazing to see Maggie still has complete faith in humanity despite of surviving from Mass Dog Slaughterhouse. Maggie will love you whether you live in a little trailer or a big house. No matter what kind of mood you are in, Maggie can always make you smile. Can you be a special someone to give Maggie a home?

Story
Meet JiYong🩷 In October 2022, JiYong came to a city shelter right before the weather became cold. Because JiYong looked underweight compared to his body size where his ribcage looked visible, we had to rescue and bring him to our center.😭 JiYong has a rounded face and short legs! He is a very cute and beautiful petite-sized white pup!😍 So far JiYong gets along well with other doggies at the center. * Because he gets sensitive during mealtime, he needs to be separated when he eats. * When he feels good, he can be a sweetie, but he nips if disturbed and forced to do something he doesn’t like.🤣

Story
Meet Kuku🩵 On a cold winter night, Danpoong gave birth to 5 puppies at Korean city shelter. She and her pups got severe scabies prompting urgent rescue to Adogs center. Their mother Danpoong took great care of her puppies, and the pups were chubby and healthy. His round eyes and long pointy ears are so lovely! He's such a cute little puppy with an adorable round mouth 😍 * Separation anxiety: None! * Keywords: #gentle, #lovepeople, #timid * Energy level (1~10): Indoors lv.6, outdoors lv 2-3 * Loves people so much, gives kisses to everyone he meets wagging with his tail-copter! 😍 * Very social and gentle 😊 A little fearful but adapts quickly wherever he goes! He can handle meeting one dog by taking time but is a little fearful of dog cafes as of yet. * He has become more active lately! Hops around in familiar places and when visiting new places, he sits calmly next to his guardian or naps. * Rarely barks, he barks only at his own reflection in the mirror or with sudden noise. 😊 * Very well-mannered during walks! Does not pull his leash, waits when the caregiver stops * Already mastered “Sit”, “Shake”, and “Down”. He’s a quick learner😊 * Favorites: stuffed animals, squeaky toys, food, people, sticks

Story
Meet Bomi💕 Bomi was rescued from Korean city shelter along with her 7 babies. Her 7 puppies found their respective foster/forever homes and Bomi has been waiting for her family. * She has a lovable smile and soft cappuccino coat that makes her even more beautiful. 💕 * Separation anxiety : None * Potty training : Outdoor potty 100%. She always does her business at the same spot. * Energy Level (1~10): Lv. 1-2 * She is weary of strangers :( She is timid but she is happy to see people she knows and approaches with wagging tail.🥰 * She doesn’t bark when she sees other dogs. She slowly comes up to them. * She didn't bark and was quiet when she had guests at home. She didn't approach strangers just by observing them from afar, but she didn't bark. * She took a while to warm up to the other dogs at the foster home. * She is very timid girl. Needs some time to warm up with everything. * Please be patient with her. * Please move slowly and stay quiet as possible until she gets used to staying with you. * Successfully her nail! * She is a very curious girl. Let her explore the new world. * Currently she is practicing walkies. She is getting much better though. She gets scared of the manhole. Continuously needs leash training. * She is not a big fan of bathing, but she waits well until it's done. Pretty good at basic cleaning after walkies. She runs away when she sees the toothbrush but she accepts the situation as soon as it starts. * She prefers not to be held before. She is doing better and better. She doesn't bite. 💙Bomi's foster story 👉 @bomi_adogs

Story
Meet Bada🩵 At the end of June 2022, Bada was admitted to the shelter with a fractured front leg. Bandaged in the hot weather, his wound attracted flies, and upon examination after rescue, his bones were misaligned, requiring a second surgery. Now, his bones have healed well, and he is happily running around without any issues. 😊 * Interaction with People : Bada is extremely fond of people. He's a sweetheart to humans, always greeting them with a big smile, which is so adorable. ❤ * Interaction with Dogs: He can be assertive towards dogs who play rough, so caution is needed. Tends to avoid encountering dogs with whom he had a clash at the Center. * Potty Training: He's been doing outdoor potty at the Center. * Hygiene: He's cooperative with ear cleaning and doesn't resist. However, he might whine when getting his nails trimmed as he's not used to it, so regular walks to grind his nails are necessary. * Walking: He follows people without pulling on the leash. Sometimes, he may resist going where he doesn't want to, but with leash training, he'll likely improve quickly. * Car Sickness: He's fine in the car and doesn't experience motion sickness at all! 💌Special Notes💌 * Separation anxiety and toilet training are still unknown as he's been living in a group at the center. * He rarely barks unnecessarily, but sometimes, he may bark alertly at external noises. He stops when called. * Bada enjoys being with people and receiving love while resting, so a place where he can receive undivided attention would be ideal. ☺️ He also enjoys his alone time when needed!

Story
Here comes Dorothy 🐶💕 who was rescued from a Mass Dog Slaughterhouse. She may need time and help to adjust to a home setting with routine. Like Dorothy in “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” our Dorothy is compassionate and courageous. She used to be cowered herself in a corner of her cage and vocalized her right to be fed but not any longer. As times goes by, her true nature got into light. Even when she had to fast for her spayed surgery, Dorothy was patient and stoic about skipping a meal. 😊 Although she had to take a break every ten steps and to be carried in during her walk at first, Dorothy became a confident walker. She loves to see the wider world and to investigate new and interesting smells by having her nose to the ground much of the walk. Dorothy is not hesitant to express her love. When she felt tired after her ride to a Veterinarian for spayed surgery, she rested her head on the shoulder of a volunteer. It was such a lovely sight!🐶❣️ Dorothy is considerate and will be a good companion in your life. Could you be the one who can give a home to this lovely girl?🙏
