Matilda is a Labrador and Jindo mix. She was found roaming in a village in Korea. She was starving; skin and bones, dirty and terrified. She had to survive by hunting small animals and scavenging for garbage. Therefore, she has a higher prey drive and is best in a home without cats and other small animals. She has a harder time trusting other dogs but has warmed up to some. One in particular is the love her life and his name is Oso. She met him at the training school she spent two months in, and they have bonded incredibly well.
She has made tremendous progress in the time we had her and even though she has gone through so much in her short life, she is very smart, loving, easy going and playful with people. Everyone who has ever met her, has fallen in love with this beautiful girl.
The adoption fee for Matilda is $280.
