Story
I'm Thori, a 2-year-old male Spitz mix looking for my forever home. I'm a friendly and well-mannered pup who gets along great with other dogs. I have plenty of experience going on walks, and I'm a pro at it. You'll be amazed because I rarely bark. I'm gentle, calm, and my fluffy tail adds a touch of elegance to my charm. I'm quite curious and full of energy, so I love exploring. Just remember to put a leash on me when we're out and about. Playing with friends is something I adore. If you're looking for a companion who's not only well-behaved but also fun-loving, I might just be the perfect match for you. Let's embark on this journey of friendship together. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzeEp7ZKc_nbZqHHFPaASmn

Story
Greetings, I'm Mint, an 8-month-old girl with a mix. My journey began when I was just a 2-week-old baby, arriving at the city shelter along with my seven siblings and loving Mom. I bring a delightful and sociable spirit with me. One of my brothers found a loving home in Seattle through fostering, and it was love at first sight for his foster family. We're a charming bunch! Yet, the rest of my siblings, including myself, are still at the city shelter, facing the risk of euthanasia. All of us are a delightful blend of friendly, funny, and undeniably cute. Strength? That's a matter of perspective. I consider myself innocent and gentle, always eager for playful adventures. Food is a joy, but I'm no guard—sharing with friends is more my style. My energy level is moderate, and I enjoy playtime with pals while maintaining a calm demeanour indoors. Petting me is a breeze, and my wobbly tail is a testament to my happiness. I'm the epitome of cheerfulness—always ready with a wagging tail, especially when making eye contact. If you're in search of a bright and cheerful companion, look no further—meet me and let's create a beautiful bond!

Story
Hello, I'm Yeolkong, a charming 4-year-old mixed-breed boy with a petite frame and an irresistibly cute face. Despite my size, I'm courageous and enjoy the company of even the biggest dogs. While I adore my doggy friends, my heart belongs to people—I'm a real people’s dog! From the very first meeting, I'm open to pets and hugs, readily showing my affection. I'm polite when greeting friends, though I may not engage in play as often. I do experience a touch of jealousy around other dogs, making me envision a perfect life as the only fur child in a loving household. My energy level falls between moderate to high, and I crave outdoor adventures to let loose. If you're an active individual who loves walking, hiking, and staying on the move, we're a match made in heaven! During walks, I may pull a bit due to excitement, but I'm an attentive listener and follow your lead. New environments can be a tad overwhelming for me, and loud noises may prompt me to lie down to soothe myself. Treats are my weakness, and when one is in sight, I'll sit quietly, patiently waiting. I'm generous and have no qualms about sharing; guarding resources is not my style. Communication is key—I know how to speak up when I want something. I'm crate-trained and adapting to car rides, although I may need a little assistance getting in and out. Potty training is in progress, and once settled into a routine, outdoor potty will likely become my preference. Currently cohabiting with several dog companions, my heart longs for a human family to shower me with love and, of course, many snacks. If you're ready to be that loving family, I'm more than ready to fill your life with joy and tail wags!

Story
Hello, I'm Bay, an adorable 8-month-old SharPei mix boy eagerly awaiting my forever home. My journey began at the city shelter when I was just a 2-week-old baby, accompanied by my loving Mom and seven siblings. While one of my seven siblings found a happy home through fostering, I and my other siblings are still at the city shelter, facing the risk of euthanasia. Each one of us embodies a friendly, funny, and endearing spirit. Picture this: lovely chocolate fur, long legs adorned with white socks, and eyes that exude innocence, much like a baby angel. I'm a social butterfly, adoring people so much that I'll gladly sit on a stranger's lap upon our first meeting. Playing with friends is a delight for me, and if I discover a cherished toy, I'll quietly retreat to a corner to enjoy it. My nature is gentle and kind; even if friends approach me while I'm with my toys, I'll simply relocate without any fuss or growls. If you're seeking a puppy friend to always bring a smile to your face and shower you with love, then I'm the perfect companion. Consider adopting me, and I promise to become a cherished and lovable member of your family. Let's create a beautiful bond and fill your home with joy and love together.

Hello, I'm Cinamon, an adorable 8-month-old SharPei mix girl eagerly awaiting my forever home. My journey began at the city shelter when I was just a 2-week-old baby, accompanied by my loving Mom and seven siblings. We're a charming bunch! While one of my seven siblings found a happy home through fostering, my other siblings and I are still at the city shelter, facing the risk of euthanasia. Each one of us embodies a friendly, funny, and endearing spirit. I'm a social butterfly, adoring people so much. I allow strangers to touch or hug me. I'm a very nice, innocent soul. And I'm an extreme toy lover. If I have a toy I like, I go to the corner alone and play with it quietly without my friends knowing. I grew up in a shelter as a baby, so I have less experience. I still need to learn how to eat snacks. When I go for a walk, my tail goes down in unfamiliar places. I wish I had a family who could teach me the taste of delicious snacks and the joy of walking. I will be your lovely and good family member. I'm in a shelter in Korea and ready to fly anywhere in Seattle or Vancouver if you call my name.

Story
Hello there! My name is Toast, and I'm a sweet 3 and a half-year-old baby who found herself in a shelter at just 3 months old back in January 2020. I've been patiently waiting for my forever home, and I think it could be with you! I absolutely love people, and I'm not shy but given a little more attention, I'll come right up to you, wagging my tail for some pets. I'm a pro at making new friends! I've got a lot of experience with walks, so you won't have to worry about me pulling on the leash—I'm great at keeping pace. I get along well with other dogs and have a friendly and sociable nature. Meeting new furry friends is something I look forward to, and I'm known for being quite affectionate. After our walks, I usually settle down nicely, matching my energy to the situation. I'm not much of a barker, and I don't guard my food. I'm a well-behaved girl. I'm also well-behaved in my kennel, quietly waiting for our next adventure together. I'm pretty good about doing my business outdoors, and I enjoy tasty snacks. If you're looking for a charming and affectionate Jindo mix, I might just be the perfect match for you!
