Story
Meet Joy🩷 Joy is the sweetest pup! She is gentle and adorable and steals everyone’s heart. * Toward People: Loves everyone regardless of age or gender! Is a charming sweetheart who wags her tail to greet even strangers. Keeps porking her head in to be petted because she loves to be caressed. Is so gentle that she gets startled and immediately takes a hand out that accidentally ends up in her mouth when she is playing. * Toward Dogs: Gets along well with her best friend Mansoo #AdogsMansoo, with whom she shares kennel. Greets other dogs nicely whom she encounters while out for walks. However, because she tends to play a bit rough, it is important to keep an eye on her when she meets other dogs in an off-leash area. * Separation Anxiety: Is unknown since she is staying in group at the Adogs Center. * Potty Training: Uses outdoor potty in the Cener. *Hygiene: Behaves well during baths. * Walks: Is adept at walking side by side with a walker, without pulling on the leash. 💗 * Car sickness: None. 💌Special Note💌 * Mastered commands like "sit" and "shake hands"!

Story
Meet Dooly💜 Three siblings Dooly, Douner, and Ddochi were rescued from Korean city shelter where they lived for 2 months without their mom. Dooly received training at a training center and learned how to live with people. We hope and wish that Dooly will find a loving foster or forever family. * Because he is living at Adogs center with a group of dogs, we don’t know if he has separation anxiety or if he is housebroken. 💟 Personality and characteristics *Keyword: Smiley #SmileyAngel #Timid *Energy level (1-10): lv.5~6 *Dooli is a pup who has a goofy smile that looks extremely cute!😁 In contrast to his siblings Donner and Ddochi, he is a charming yellow pup with his beautiful yellow coat! *He was a timid pup who lacked some social skills and after he was trained at training class, he improved and is doing better!👍🏻 *Dooli actively runs around and is very energetic! To meet his energy and active nature, it would be ideal if he could be adopted to a family where they can consistently walk him every day!

Story
I am urgently trying to find a new home for Sana, my 2.5yo Akita- she must be re-homed by May 26 at the latest. It is not safe to have her around my two young children (obvious prey drive), and she is aggressive towards other animals. She is eager to please, and she is trainable. She's affectionate, goofy, athletic, anxious, and energetic. She would love to be a companion animal. Sana is a purebred Akita (no papers). She weighs about 100lbs. She's micro-chipped, she’s utd on vaccinations, and she has no major health problems. She has sensitive skin, and she’s on a limited-ingredient diet. Spayed. Due to her fear reactivity, prey drive, and aggression towards other animals, Sana is a high risk animal right now. However, she has no bite history. She’s afraid of strangers, but she has become friends with my friends and with people who take her for walks. She knows basic commands but will require further training. An owner with experience handling dominant-type breeds would be best.

Click the button to download the adoption application. The application is a form-fillable pdf. Fill out the form, save it to your hard drive, then email back to sian@gingerspetrescue.org Hi!  My name is Xavier from Korea and I am a wonderful approximately 5 month old  male Akita - Jindo mix.  I weigh approximately 14 lbs. and so excited to find my new forever home.  I am very happy, affectionate, smart, and friendly.  I was saved from the Korean kill shelter where I was due to be euthanized. The activists came and saved me and I can't wait to come to America and find a family to love and care for me forever.  Approximately over a million dogs a year are slaughtered to be eaten.  I am so lucky to get a one-way ticket to Seattle to find my new family.  Take me on car rides, walks in the park, and I will become your best friend.  I get along well with people of all ages, gentle kids, and other dogs.  I will do best with a loving family that can give me lots of love, and affection!  On all overseas adoption, we highly recommend our pet rescue dog trainer who will help train your new pup.  My adoption fee of $1,295 will cover my spay/neuter, DA2PP shots, Rabies, Bordetella, Deworm, Heart Worm Test, Microchip, Boarding Fees, Health Certificate and airline transport cost from Korea to Seattle.   A GPS tracker or Apple Air Tag is required for all adopted dogs. You can bring your own when adopting or you can purchase an Air Tag from us   We cannot guarantee breed or age. The adoption fee is firm and helps save the life of another dog needing rescue and our other dogs in need of medical care.  Donations are always appreciated to help pay down our vet bills at Greenwood Vet.  Ginger's Pet Rescue is a non-profit 501C-3 organization.  The adoption fee is donated to the rescue and is tax deductible.   Please e-mail   admin@gingerspetrescue.org   for an adoption application.

Hi, my name is Hobart and I would love to meet you. I have been at the shelter since Jul 11, 2023. All my friends say that I`m pretty affectionate and if that means I like getting pets and having my paw held, that`s definitely true! When I`m not being a love-bug, I love going on casual walks where I can sniff the breeze and feel the sun on my fur. I can`t wait to add a lot of cuddle time to your routine!
