Are you looking for an athletic, graceful, and elegant addition to your pack? Looking for a companion and playmate to the dog you already have? Then look no further than Kimmy! Kimmy is an adorable 1 year old Jindo mix. She is a beauty, everybody who meets her has said so, but she doesn’t let it go to her head.

Kimmy was rescued from Uljin city shelter from the euthanasia list. When WEACT visited Uljin for an emergency rescue during the biggest wildfire in Korea, the Uljin city shelter was already overpopulated and had been euthanizing dogs.  Kim was abandoned with her sister when she was only a few months old.

Kimmy really needs a doggie sibling. She has a very sweet and submissive temperament and she has yet to meet a dog she didn’t instantly love and want to play with. She will rely on her doggie sibling to help her get used to her new family and feel more comfortable (Her foster brother has helped a lot with this). 

She is almost the perfect dog. She is house-trained, good on a leash,  doesn’t have any separation anxiety and (for the most part) crate trained.

Kimmy wants to be loved so badly but it will take her a while to build trust with her new family. The good news is she can do it, her foster mom has seen a lot of progress since she got Kimmy. Kim is definitely a really sweet dog who will love her people, but her new owners will need to be patient with her as she gets comfortable.  Whoever adopts her will need to know the road to her affection will be a marathon, not a sprint, but the payoff is huge! She might always be uncertain about meeting new people but will become comfortable with her family.

Kimmy can be very skittish and unsure when her foster mom takes out the harness and leash, so her foster mom sits down beside her and moves slowly. Once Kim is hooked up she is a different dog, ready for an adventure. In fact, she loves the outdoors and is always fully engaged in her environment. She rides really well in the car. Traffic and city noises don’t seem to bother her. Daily walks will help with bonding.  

Little Miss Kim is definitely a diamond in the rough! We are looking for a home who understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a dog as a member of their family. Kimmy is patiently waiting!
