June 24th update - Isabella has been adopted by a wonderful couple in Iksan! She is still adjusting to her new home, but her parents are loving her! Yay Isabella!
June 12th update - Isabella went in for her vaccines and check-up this week. She is now 4.7kg (from 4.3kg) and got her DHPP and Kennel Cough Vaccination. She also started her monthly routine of Heartworm meds and flea and tick medications. Isabella is doing extremely well, but her foster mommy's land lady has decided she cannot keep the little love at her home anymore. Hopefully she will find a home soon, or find another loving foster in the mean time.
June 3rd update - Isabella is growing so wonderfully! She lost two of her bottom baby teeth last week and they're already growing back in! She will be going back to the vet this weekend to get her second to last round of shots. What a healthy girl!
Still looking for a forever home :)
This little love is just as spunky as her name is! You will not regret welcoming this little love into your home. She will make your heart spin just as she spins for joy when she welcomes you back home :)
Isabella is currently in a foster home in Gyeongsan (right beside Daegu) but needs to find a forever home. She was born at the end of December 2012, and weighs 4.3kgs as of May 20th. She is up-to-date on vaccines, and received her Rabies vaccine on May 20th.
She is listed under "special needs" because she currently is diagnosed with a condition called "Cherry-Eye". But this does not get Isabella down in any way! She is just as energetic and playful as any puppy out there. It does not cause her any pain and can eventually be surgically removed.
She is house trained and knows to potty on the potty pad. Occasionally she'll miss the potty pad by a few centemeters, but ALWAYS tries to potty on the pad. And just as any pup, she does tinkle a bit out of excitement or nervousness. She just recently started going outside as well during our daily walks so I’m sure she will adjust very well to peeing outside if that’s what you prefer. She makes a great walking, jogging, running, hiking, beach, (and anything else) buddy as she’s gone on a 7km walk with her foster mom once and dragged her foster mom all the way to the finish line!
I hope you can find it in your heart to make space for this little love into your home and into your heart!
Original Adoption Listing:
UPDATE: Izzy is now in Gyeongsan with her foster mom.
Isabella the She-Wolf of France is the little sister of now-adopted Julia Caesar and Robert the Bruce (and also Penelope, Queen of Ithaca, but her situation was sorted out elsewhere.) Born last and smallest, her heart was nevertheless full of charm and courage.
She has overcome much in her short life. Her mother was cast into a shelter, reliant on her beauty to get by, only to be left pregnant and abandoned by Isabella's mysterious father. Adopted by a do-gooder foreigner, Isabella's mother hid her delicate state as long as possible, fearful of being cast out lest it be discovered. But the foreigner accepted the situation with as much panic as dignity would allow her and with the help of another do-gooder foreigner, Isabella and her siblings were safely delivered into the world on December 30th, 2012.
Undaunted by her tiny stature, she was the first to open her eyes to the wonders of existence and the second to clamber up onto her stubby legs to explore those wonders. She learned the art of the pee pad.
But tragedy struck. For Isabella had and has a cherry eye which will probably require surgery to rectify. It does not detract from her charm - nay! She is as playful and spritely and cuddlesome as a pup can be! Nevertheless, a prospective owner should be aware of it.
Currently, she has had her first round of vaccinations to protect her from microscopic dangers. I intend to get her the second round soon. I will not be able to afford the surgeries - she requires two to treat the cherry eye. The first, to remove the excess skin, will cost 150,000 won as quoted by a local vet. The second, to reconstruct the eyelid, will be more expensive. (The vet didn't give us a quote for that.) I'm attempting a home remedy to hopefully fix the problem, but I can't guarantee anything regarding how well it work right now.
Will you find it within your heart the space to squeeze in this brave pup with exceptionally soft fur?
