The couple was patiently waiting to take home their very first dog and jumped at the opportunity when Gina, our NY adoption facilitator, offered that Jaime could be picked up two days early. “We were so excited when we received that phone call from Gina. We had huge smiles on our faces and rushed out the door because we couldn’t wait to finally meet Jaime. The bad weather conditions were an after-thought,” Tina explained.
The drive was tough for the couple, but it was worth it. Two hours later, they finally met Gina and Jaime at the PS9 Pet Supplies store in Brooklyn, NY. Jaime and his brother were playing in an exercise pen together. Chris told us, “Jaime was acting so silly and full of life, even though he just arrived from Korea that afternoon. We knew he was the one for us.”
It has been three months since Chris and Tina adopted their beloved Jaime. As expected, Jaime is still the playful and happy puppy that they adopted on that stormy night. The couple has been learning new things about how to raise a puppy and, specifically, how to raise Jaime every day. Last week, they learned that he loves carrots and will do every trick he knows just for one piece.
“Life is so much better with Jaime around. He has taught us the meaning behind patience, routine, and love. As first time dog parents, we have taken on a new meaning behind the phrase “socialization is important” – we have actually made quite a few friends around the neighborhood thanks to Jaime’s handsome looks and friendliness! It seems like he has been socializing us,” Chris laughed.
Tina smiled as she stroked Jaime’s fur. “We are incredibly thankful that the Free Korean Dogs organization and Mrs. Jung’s shelter saved Jaime. It horrifies us to think he could’ve lived such a different life if there weren’t good-hearted people in the world.”
Thank you to Chris and Tina for helping our cause by adopting Jaime. There is still so much work to do and lives to save but we are taking steps forward in the right direction every day.
And thank you, reader, for taking the time to learn more about our cause.
