Update: Taegeon has found a forever home in Vancouver. Yay!
*Note: Taegeon is with a foster in Nanaimo and is available for adoption to residents on Vancouver Island or the mainland.
Taegeon was found on the streets in Paju, Korea in March, 2016. He then lived in the shelter almost for 6 years without any prospects of adoption. The shelter that Taegeon lived in is very humble with few resources to afford his enrichment. He has to stay in his kennel most of the time, which was outdoors. Despite his limited life, Taegeon was always sweet and obedient to shelter staff and loved getting attention. He completed a health check up and dental cleaning before flying to Canada to find his forever home. No one in Korea wanted to give him a chance, but we know the perfect family is out there for him here in Vancouver, waiting to shower him with warmth and love.
Taegeon has settled in with his foster family beautifully and smoothly thus far. His foster mom describes Teageon as:
Personality: Sweet, calm and chill.
He is very quiet and laid back; he likes to lie down on his bed and relax most of the time. But when you take him out for a walk, he loves to explore new smells and his surroundings. He is very sweet and affectionate to his foster parents, and he was perfectly fine having visitors including a 13 year old boy at home.
Leash skills: He rarely pulls the leash while he is on a walk. Plus, he’s an amazing heeler
Car ride: He also enjoys riding in the car and looks outside the whole time fascinated by the beautiful scenery and the smell of the ocean.
Potty Training: He is fully potty trained; never had any accidents ever since he’s arrived.
Independence: He is perfectly fine on his own; he likes to see outside by the window looking outside between the curtains when he left alone at home.
Dogs: He is friendly with his foster’s dog, but he is NOT interested in playing with him like puppies do.
Food: He is on dehydrated raw diet plus kibble; fed twice a day and he loves it. He is also very treat-motivated.
Sleep: He sleeps through the whole night.
Overall, Taegeon is a wonderful dog with such a gentle soul. Because of what he has been through it will take about a week ~ 2 weeks before his new family sees his sweet, adorable personality, At first, he will just watch and observe (it took 3 days at his foster).
Taegeon will do best in a home with a quiet and laid back lifestyle. He would enjoy humans who enjoy leisurely walks, and have the time at home to spend with him, even if it is just hanging out, reading a book, or watching TV.
His adoption fee is $460 CAD.
DHPPL, Canine Influenza, Kennel Cough, Rabies, Corona, Heartworm test, Giardia test, Flea & tick & heartworm prevention are all done.
