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

Born with a deformed ear, Jennifer was rescued in 2018 from the Dangjin dog meat farm, being one of the 83 dogs removed from the farm at the time of liberation. It was not difficult to pick her out from the rest as she was a stunning girl with captivating eyes. But despite being rescued from challenging circumstances and thriving in it, her life continues to present difficulties. Unfortunately, time has not been kind to her and Jennifer has noticeably regressed.

Although she has gained much-needed weight, Jennifer tipped the scales a little too far, had an increasing and significant lack of energy, and a decreased desire to engage in physical activities. Setting in motion a series of medical tests, she was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, requiring lifelong medication to manage her condition.

Furthermore, Jennifer still struggles with the deep emotional scars of her past. She remains very skittish and apprehensive with humans even after several years of rescue. Avoiding any contact with humans, she instinctively flees and hides at the first hint of motion or eye contact. As such, simple tasks such as grooming or basic health examinations are virtually impossible to conduct without aid or intervention. Her deeply rooted trauma poses significant challenges to conducting veterinary visits, with her new health developments complicating an already arduous situation. The process involves placing her in a crate and embarking on a full-day trip to a vet clinic located in another city.

Despite her internal struggles and slow progress in accepting human interaction, Jennifer remains happy and congenial within her comfort zone. While is far from being emotionally ready for adoption, she is content living her life on her own terms, which we concede she will likely live out the rest of her life in the shelter. Although her future is not as we hoped, we understand it is still one that is free and fulfilling. Help support Jennifer’s continued medical and housing needs so that she may live out the rest of her life with as much comfort as we can provide.
