Background: Youngwoo endured a harrowing experience. He was once a stray dog wandering in a park where villagers fed him. After disappearing for a few weeks, he returned with a horrific burn mark on his back. It’s suspected that he was captured and subjected to a cruel act of violence. Witnessing this innocent soul in pain was heart-wrenching. Youngwoo was promptly taken to a hospital where he required several months to heal.

Personality: Youngwoo exhibits a delightful and gentle nature. With moderate energy levels, he is remarkably patient and loyal. His easy-going and mellow demeanor makes him a truly loyal companion.

Behaviors: Youngwoo enjoys walks and outdoor activities. He is fine riding in a car and when getting a bath. He rarely barks and prefers to do his business outdoors. Youngwoo exemplifies gentleness and good manners.

Socialization: Youngwoo steers clear of conflicts with other dogs, showcasing patience and gentleness even when faced with lively puppies. He interacts well with dogs of all sizes. Around people, he initially displays caution towards men, likely stemming from his past trauma. While he may take time to warm up to men, his gentle nature eventually shines through. Youngwoo is affectionate and loving towards women, displaying friendliness and obedience.

Health: After receiving burn treatment, Youngwoo underwent heartworm and anaplasmosis treatments. He has fully recovered and is now in good health. He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, with monthly flea, tick, and mosquito preventatives provided.

Ideal Home: Youngwoo’s amiable nature suggests compatibility with various households. However, an ideal match would be someone who can dedicate ample time to him, such as an individual working from home or retired with abundant free time for their furry companion. Given his tranquil and affectionate disposition, Youngwoo would suit first-time dog owners, retirees, or as a companion to another pet. Any individual fortunate enough to adopt this gentle and loving soul will undoubtedly be rewarded with a devoted companion.
