Story
Bellini would be just peachy being your new best friend! Part Jindo, part Border Collie, Bellini was rescued along with her sisters and one brother from a terrible hoarding situation in Korea and was going to be sent to an illegal meat farm. Bellini is a gorgeous white and blonde baby currently weighing 4kg and about 4 months old. She will probably remain small as her mom was only about 25 lbs. She is warming up to our team in Korea, and with more human interactions, her personality is sure to blossom. Can you give this sweet girl a soft spot to land? Apply to foster or adopt today!

Mojito needs a minty fresh new start; could that be with you? Part Jindo, part Border Collie, Mojito needs a refreshing new change of scenery to go with her new name. She was rescued along with her sisters and one brother from a terrible hoarding situation in Korea and was going to be sent to a meat farm. Mojito is a sweet salt and pepper spotted baby who currently weighs 4kg and is about 4 months old. She will probably remain small as her mom was only about 25 lbs. She is up to date on shots and will be fixed before flying out to the states. She is warming up to our team in Korea, and with more human interactions, her personality is sure to blossom.

Story
Last summer the shelter we work with in South Korea saved 80 dogs from the meat market! Shorty was one of the babies born from a rescued pregnant mama! Unfortunately 2 of his siblings died of parvo, but this little legged boy is going strong! He is about 1 1/2 years old, vaccinated and neutered and ready to board his freedom flight!! He plays well with other dogs and he doesn't let his short little legs slow him down. We have so many tickets in Jan and Feb, but Shorty needs a committed foster or adopter to board! Apply to bring Shorty home today! To see more pictures and videos of our animals check out our IG and TikTok @SamsonsSanctuary Can't adopt but still want to help?

Hi! My name is Pear, and I am IN SOUTH KOREA waiting to be matched to a home in Los Angeles! I was rescued from the dog meat trade in South Korea by the DoVE Project. My fate would have been to live in fear and distress, watching dogs being led to slaughter for human consumption. DoVE Project heard about me, and now I am looking for my forever family! ID/NAME: C’DT23-11 / Pear SEX/WEIGHT/AGE: Male / 62lbs / 9 months BIRTH DATE: May 01, 2023 BREED: Jindo mix VACCINATIONS/SPAY/NEUTER/HEALTH: All inoculations completed on 7/12/2023. Tested negative for distemper and parvo. BEHAVIOR Pear enjoys people and other dogs. He is playful and is also learning to appreciate affection from people. Pear loves attention and getting lots of pets. Walks well on a leash. SIBLINGS/FAMILY: Pear was rescued from an illegal dog farm with her Mother (Gil Dong) and siblings: Mango, Kiwi, Berry, Raisin, and Clementine. ABOUT JINDOS Jindos are known for their fierce loyalty, high intelligence, rarely barking, and playful nature. They make great indoor family dogs, as Jindos are clean, easily housetrained, and faithful to family members. They are also mid-level active and love being socialized at dog parks, hiking, and joining the family on trips. ABOUT SHELTER STRESS Dogs who have lived in shelters for a long period of time develop behaviors due to an environment that is loud, chaotic, and stressful, even in the best shelters in the US. Dogs in shelters have limited socialization exposure to people and urban environments. DoVE dogs also come from a traumatic background such as dog meat farms and slaughterhouses. While many of our dogs acclimate within a few months with consistency, structure, and patience, some of our more sensitive dogs can take longer to rehabilitate. It's important to note that these sensitive dogs are even more attuned to human emotions and behavior, making for a deeper connection human-dog connection. DoVE Project is committed to helping our adopters desensitize and socialize our dog meat trade survivors. ********************************* DoVE Project operates a shelter in South Korea, where our dogs stay until they are matched with an adopter. In the US, our dogs stay in foster homes or in boarding, as we do not have a physical facility. These dogs are identified with "in LA" in their names. Please note that we only adopt our pups in the Southern California area.

ID/NAME: CARE23-058 / Fritz SEX/WEIGHT/AGE: Male / 37.5 lbs / 1 year BIRTH DATE: July 1st, 2022 BREED: Jindo mix VACCINATIONS/SPAY/NEUTER/HEALTH: Vaccinations complete / Neutered / Healthy BEHAVIOR: Fritz is a gentle dog that has adjusted well after being rescued from an abusive situation. Fritz likes to be with people and is confident and friendly with other dogs. He enjoys running together with his caretakers and gives "high fives" to new human friends. He gets along well with other dogs, and especially loves to chase and play with them. SIBLINGS/FAMILY: Unknown BACKGROUND: Fritz was found wandering the streets after enduring daily beatings from an abusive owner. Having escaped a harsh owner, he was found by a kind local in the neighborhood who offered temporary shelter but was unable to provide long-term care due to their own health challenges. Efforts to involve local authorities were unsuccessful, and eventually the local contacted Care. Fritz was rescued in May 2023.
