On September 1st, 2018, Free Korean Dogs rescued 83 dogs from Dangjin dog meat farm, in South Korea. Amidst this tale of redemption, one survivor’s story shines – Jumbak, a resilient heart that defied the odds to claim her rightful place in the symphony of second chances.
Jumbak lived a hard life, mostly knowing only neglect. She used to eat from a metal bowl, and the food was barely enough. But even in those tough times, you could see hope in her eyes.
In November 2018, things took a turn for the worse. Jumbak started having seizures and was diagnosed with parvo, a severe illness for dogs. Some even suggested putting her to sleep. But EK Park from Free Korean Dogs didn’t give up on her. They decided to help Jumbak fight this illness.
During that cold Korean winter, Jumbak was isolated because of the disease. She was alone most of the time, only seeing volunteers and trainers now and then. It was a long and lonely winter for her. But by spring, she started to recover.
Even after beating parvo, Jumbak had some health issues, like shaking and a weak heart. But she kept getting better and stronger every day.
By spring 2020, things were looking up for Jumbak. She was happy and playing with kids in her foster home. She also made friends with two other dogs, Mido and Baekdo. She even had a happy reunion with her old friend Tui, who now lives in Canada.
Jumbak’s story shows us the strength of dogs and the magic of love and care. Every day she’s a living reminder that no matter how tough things get, there’s always hope.
Jumbak has endured hardships most of us can’t imagine, but she carries a spirit that refuses to be dimmed. With every step of her journey, she reminds us of resilience, hope, and the transformative power of love.
