Update: Shirley has found a forever home in Toronto. Yay!
* NOTE: Due to COVID19 and a shortage of flight volunteers, the dog will be transported by cargo flights, which will cost over $2,500 CAD. Free Korean Dogs would appreciate a contribution of $1,000 from future family towards the cargo fee to help with transportation and costs once arranged. The total fee for Shirley is $1,960 CAD ($960 CAD for adoption+$1,000 CAD for cargo flight). Shirley will arrive in Toronto on June 29.
Shirley was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Masan, Korea 4 years ago. After she was pulled from the shelter, she lived in a dog boarding house. Despite the safety of living there, her rescuer noticed she was not getting the socialization she needed as the owner of the boarding house was quite negligent in her care outside of providing food and shelter. So, she was moved once again and recently joined our partner boarding house.
Before moving into our care, we were told Shirley was extremely scared and nervous. However, it turned out she is very sweet and affectionate, and was simply not provided the opportunity to show how much love she has to give. Shirley loves getting attention from humans and being pet, and will approach on her own initiative when she is in need of love and cuddles. She also plays well with other dogs and is very gentle with them.
Shirley’s ideal home is in a calm and relaxed environment and people who have the time to spend quality time with her, as she loves being with her people.
DHPPL, Canine Influenza, Kennel Cough, Rabies, Corona, Heartworm test, Giardia test, Flea & tick & heartworm prevention are all done.
