Ilia and her brother Samlou were born just after their mom was rescued. Very lucky puppies! She lived in a boarding house in Korea with over 50 dogs after she was rescued.
While at the boarding house, Ilia had a great personality. She was very friendly and happy, and played very well with other dogs. She was also affectionate and obedient with people, as seen in the videos.
Ilia was adopted in Toronto and continued to thrive. Sadly, a week after her adoption her adopter faced some unexpected circumstances and could no longer care for her, so she was surrendered back to us and moved to a foster home.
Although the circumstances were not her fault, it has unfortunately left Ilia very confused and insecure. She suffered many changes, without the security of her shelter mates and caregivers she considered “home” since infancy. Currently at her foster, she may communicate by barking when she feels scared or vulnerable.
Ilia would benefit from an adopter who lives in a quiet house with a yard, and is calm and patient. Ilia is very intuitive and her insecurities heighten when she feels her humans are nervous. Her adopter should be understanding of her circumstances and give her time and space to rebuild her confidence, and allow her to come out to blossom at her own pace into the loving and friendly dog we know her to be.
