Molly is a 5-year-old Jindo mix rescued from Seoul, Korea in 2014. She is hopeful that she will find her forever home in Toronto soon!
Several years ago, Molly was an outdoor dog in Seoul that was always tied to a pole, had no water, and food. Luckily, Molly was discovered by a woman who feeds stray cats in the area. Molly’s owner decided to surrender her when Molly became sick from heartworms due to neglect. Thankfully, the woman who feeds stray cats was able to save Molly. (Note: Molly finished her heartworm treatments and now is very healthy!)
After Molly was rescued in 2014, she started living in a cat rescue group’s office. She had nowhere else to go and no luck with adoption in Korea due to her “large size” of 22 lb. / 10 kg and a “mixed” breed. The foster parent of Molly in Korea said that the most difficult thing for him was to leave Molly in the dark office all alone each night.
Recently EK, our Free Korean Dogs founder, saw a video of Molly playing on the rooftop of the office in Korea. It really touched her heart because she felt that Molly deserves to have a happier and safer life. Imagine the fear and loneliness that Molly felt every night when the door was closed and she was left alone in the dark. Therefore, EK decided to get in touch with the cat rescue group and find out if she can make arrangements to bring Molly to Canada.
Now Molly is happily being fostered by EK in Toronto. So far, EK has noticed that Molly is shy with human strangers but is very affectionate once she is given some time. She likes to sit on EK’s lap and snuggle with her now that she is familiar with EK. However, Molly is still scared of other dogs (especially big ones) and will need help with socialization and training.
We believe that Molly would do best in the following situation… with an adopter that has patience, love, compassion, rescue dog experience, a consistent schedule, and it is preferred if she is the only pet in the household.
