*Note: Eomji currently is with a foster family in Vancouver.
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 lived with a foster family in Korea prior to flying to Canada to find her forever home. She is currently staying with a foster in Vancouver.
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 a little bit nervous around dogs who are high energy or have dominant personalities. In her current foster, she lives with another dog (Bernadoodle) who she mostly ignores, as we believe he his young energy might disinterest her, but she is respectful of him and his presence.
Eomji enjoys her walks, being outside, and is housetrained. He foster notes she walks well on leash. Indoors, she has a quiet personality and currently does not show any signs of separation anxiety. Her foster is able to leave her alone without issue or destruction. In her Korean foster, did 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.
DHPPL, Canine Influenza, Kennel Cough, Rabies, Corona, Heartworm test, Giardia test, Flea & tick & heartworm prevention are all done.
