Eomji was found in the remote mountains with her puppies, where they were sent to a city pound and faced euthansia. We are unsure if she was a stray dog who ended up there, or abandoned there because she was pregnant. She is currently living with a foster family in Korea.
Although shy in the beginning, Eomji has opened up to her foster slowly but surely. She has begun to take treats from them, which is a good sign of trust. Although tentative, she is curious and interested in meeting new people. She has met a few of her neighbors, and while she was scared at first she now wags her tail when she sees them.
Considering her past, and the fact she may have never lived in a home before, Eomji has come leaps and bounds. She enjoys the company of other dogs and plays well with them. However, she gets nervous around dogs who are high energy or have dominant personalities.
She enjoys her walks, being outside, and is housetrained. She is quiet indoors and doesn’t show any signs of separation anxiety currently. She does well in the elevator and doesn’t have an issue with cars or the vacuum cleaner. However, Eomji does get car sick.
Eomji has a gentle, quiet, and submissive personality. When she is unsure or scared, she sits down. While this shows her submissive nature, it is also her way of communicating she is overwhelmed, and in a way is shutting down to cope. She would benefit from a family who is experienced with dogs and able to advocate for her as she gains new experiences. Having another friendly dog in the home would be ideal, but not required.
