WE ARE NOT A SHELTER; WE ARE AN ALL-VOLUNTEER RESCUE WITH FULL-TIME JOBS.
Please do not contact us to look at a dog. We will contact you once we have reviewed your completed application if we think your home might be a good fit. A reference check, phone interview, and home visit will be completed before meeting an adoptable dog.
We work quickly. Please do not submit an application until you are ready to bring a new furry family member home. Expect your references to be contacted shortly after submitting your application. We adopt out to homes around the US and Canada, but require that you are present for the meet and greet in Newcastle, WA.
Our adoption fee is non-negotiable. The adoption fee is due on the day of adoption in the form of a check, Chase Quick Pay with Zelle, PayPal, or cash.
This beautiful face is so stunning & just wants to be loved but yet again her story begins with such great sadness. Lovely Dong Baek was hit by car on the brutal streets of Korea & unfortunately the impact of the car broke her right front leg & she was left there. Thankfully a kind person found her & took her to the kill shelter where our truly outstanding Korean rescuers went in & rescued Dong Baek. They got her the surgery she needed to repair her little broken leg & discovered she was heart worm positive & treated her, so this poor girl could not catch a break. Unfortunately no one in Korea wanted to open up their hearts & home to Dong Baek so here she is now ready to find that special home who is waiting for this little lady.
Dong Baek was rescued by the amazing Korean rescue & just as always we are beyond grateful to the Korean rescue & we are so extremely grateful for what they do day in & day out for these babies & there is also such a great financial responsibility when rescuing these babies so we cannot begin to thank them enough.
Dong Baek was bought back to the USA where she is now a US citizen & is so happy to be here & can’t wait to find her new loving devoted forever home.
This little lady when you first meet her is a little shy & uncertain but once she knows & trusts you, you are good. She has been to hell & back & for everything that she has been through she is doing amazing. We got her re-tested for heart worm when she first arrived but unfortunately she was still heart worm positive so we treated her & got her well & now she is finally negative & had been for a while. Her foster mum said she lets you pick her up, snuggle with her & hug her. She is the sweetest happiest girl you will have the pleasure of meeting. Her foster mum said she loves a good outfit & adores comfy beds & big comfy blankets & will want to sleep in bed with you along with the other dogs.
She also said she is really good with being bathed & dried by the hairdryer & such a social butterfly.
We don’t think she ever received this much love before but she radiates her appreciation with us.
When we first got her she had a limp & it was very concerning that the pin would need to be removed from her leg. But now since being fed a healthy diet, being loved, getting exercise & looked after the limp has gone & our vets were extremely surprised it was no longer there.
We have been working with her on her leash & harness & does really well considering but, she still would need continued work as this is all new to her. When we walk her now she has not been showing any signs of being hit by a car. Dong Baek loves to run & play & adores her dog friends so much.
Dong Baek loves to eat, since she came into the rescue she has put on 4 lbs.
Having toys & a warm bed is all new to Dong Baek & we have been excited to change her world with the introduction of toys & lots of love & affection & a loving environment.
Dong Baek’s new forever home must have a fully fenced backyard.
Dong Baek rides well in the car & we are looking for a crate free home for this little lady only. Dong Baek does not like crates. We are also looking for a forever home for Dong Baek where someone is home during the day or she can go with her people wherever possibly she can go with them.
Dong Baek is looking for a forever home who will cherish her & love her as she should be loved & be patient with her.
Dong Baek has been around many breeds of dogs all shapes & sizes & she is currently with other dogs & does well. Dong Baek needs to go to a forever home with another dog or dogs in the home, she enjoys the company of other dogs & we currently have her with other dogs. She needs a dog roughly around her age who will play with her as she loves to play. Please do not apply saying your neighbors have a dog or family members or you will take him to places where there are other dogs. That will not work, another dog or dogs is mandatory along with a fully fenced backyard.
Dong Baek is roughly 18 lbs & put on 4 lbs being in the rescue. She had a broken right fright leg from being hit by a car in Korea & was left on the streets & taken to the shelter by a kind person & rescued by our rescuer who had a surgery on her leg in Korea to repair it. Our vets noticed a inconsistent limp when walking originally when we got her but since being with us the limp has gone & you would never know now she was hit by a car in Korea. She has a pin in her leg from her surgery from Korea & if ever it bothers her she may need it removed one day or she may not our vets said. She was also heart worm positive in Korea & treated for it. She was tested twice & treated for heart worm with us & is negative & had been for quite some time. She is 3 years old & perhaps a papillon mix, what she is mixed with we are not sure, female, she is spayed, she got a dental scale & polish, dental x-rays & a minor incisor removed. She is microchipped, up to date on her shots, including DHLPP, Bordatella, CIV, rabies & dewormed.
We have spent far more on Dong Baek with bringing her to the US with her travel costs, her cargo fees, her medical care, dental scale & polish, boarding fees etc & bringing her to WA than her adoption fee comes close to covering.
Dong Baek has not been around cats since being in the rescue, but it’s always up to the new family to be responsible with their animals together & we have not had her around small children so we do not recommend small children nor cats & it’s always up to the family to be responsible with their children & cats.
We were not there when Dong Baek was conceived so we do not know who her parents were & it’s always up to the new potential family to look at the pictures & decide what they think her breed is.
As with all of our rescues & Dong Baek’s friends she will need work on potty training & training, so this should be something the new family would be willing to work on & commit to. Please do not submit an application if you are not willing to commit to one of our rescues care for their whole life & that includes if they need training. Please do not email us asking is Dong Baek’s potty trained or available, nor do we ship dogs anywhere as we will not respond.
We would never say anyone of our rescues are potty trained. Our rescues need homes where the people are understanding of their past & what they have been through & what they will need in their daily lives & not willing to give up on them & if they do need training in their new home will in fact take them to training & not just say they will when applying.
Please only submit an application if you are truly interested in adopting Dong Baek & going through our process and have read her listing fully to the end & are wanting to adopt. If you are not responsive to our calls, emails or your references do not respond we will move on & remove your application from our system. You must be willing to go through our screening process which includes your references being checked, a phone interview & a virtual home visit via WebEx due to covid & followed by a meet & greet & if it’s a good fit, up to our discretion. We will only be accepting applications for Dong Baek who understands her needs & that meet all the requirements for this special sweet little lady.
Once we find the right home for each little soul we work fast, within days so the dogs can go to their forever homes in quite a timely manner. We do not hold onto dogs for people as our goal is to save lives & please do not submit an application if you are not ready to adopt. We also cannot respond to every application unfortunately.
Dong Baek has an adoption fee of $995 & is ready for her truly loving forever home & compassion & understanding of what she has been through.
