Get monthly updates about dogs like Aki 2 and follow their journey from suffering to a forever-loving home.

Aki’s journey began in the spring of 2021 when he was rescued from a crowded city pound in Youngyang, Korea. Unfortunately, due to the lack of space, Aki, being a big dog, was left tied to a pole outside, neglected, and forgotten.

However, two months ago, a ray of hope appeared when local farmers approached and expressed their interest in taking Aki to guard their farmland. In Korea, the life of a guard dog often entails being tied to a pole in the middle of the farmland, with little to no shelter, leading to a difficult and lonely life. Thankfully, a compassionate volunteer stepped in and rescued Aki from this fate. Currently, he resides in a private boarding house where he enjoys the company of other dogs.

Aki has a heart full of love for everyone he meets and eagerly shows his belly when encountering new people. He adores receiving affectionate pets and strokes. While he possesses a naturally independent personality, he finds ways to entertain himself when left alone. Aki delights in going for walks and relishes the opportunity to play in the water.

In terms of his relationship with other dogs, Aki generally gets along well with them and has encountered no significant issues so far. However, he may feel nervous around hyperactive larger dogs and tends to prefer the company of smaller, friendly canines.

During his time at the boarding house, which has been over a year, Aki has thrived. Undoubtedly, it is a much better environment for him compared to the city pound. He has formed close bonds with a few Jindo friends and enjoys spending time with them.

Although Aki and his companions may get excited when they see cats outside the yard, they do not consistently keep a vigilant eye on them. Interestingly, when playing with his friends, Aki doesn’t show particular interest in cats.

Aki has established a regular bathroom routine, going outside to do his business twice a day. He doesn’t engage in marking behavior or display any unique habits. So far, he has not exhibited signs of separation anxiety and is generally quiet, although he enthusiastically barks when it’s time for a walk.

Aki is a very affectionate and friendly dog. He would be best suited for someone who enjoys outdoor activities with their canine companion. An ideal owner for this lovable boy would be someone who has ample spare time to engage in play with him, possesses experience with large dogs, and resides in a quiet neighborhood. Whoever adopts Aki will be very lucky.
