Adoption Status: Adopted

Uni was adopted in May 2011, almost a year ago! She is now living in Vietnam with her parents!

She was at the Municipal Shelter in Jeju. She was named Universe (Uni), and described as "the super friendly bull terrier with the broken leg." She was first fostered by a shelter volunteer on the island for almost a month. During this time he took her to the vet to treat her leg. After we arrived back in the country, Jejudogs shipped her to us. The process was pretty painless and affordable. She arrived in high spirits and with loads of energy!

We believe there is a good chance she never lived inside as we had to teach her the basics. It took awhile to find her a good home as she had alpha traits and never ran out of energy! We needed a home that would respect and understand her personality, one that would not use her alpha traits for inappropriate sport. We also needed a home where she could be a "go dog." Once her leg healed, she never stopped. She thrived on outdoor adventures. Her mom and dad are just that, the first week she was adopted they took her to the beach and then camping!

Thank you to Jejudogs who advocated for her, to the volunteer that kept her safe and began her treatment until we arrived back to the mainland. To the ARK community that helped us raise funds for her care. And a special thanks to her forever mom and dad. Uni was a handful for us, but she was much loved under our care and we are delighted to see her thrive in her new home!

An update from Yuni's mom! Yuni is now in Vietnam, see how her life has evolved from her time in Korea. Her mom details their first-hand experience here:

As for Yuni, she is doing wonderfully. She is in great shape due to a new diet of fresh veggies, meats, and rice or sweet potato. Oh I dont know if I told you, but we found out she’s not allergic to grains! Woohoo! Save me some money ;) She loves chasing lizards and playing with snails outside. We have also became friends with a German couple (the girl is really awesome with dogs) and they happen to own a hound a little bigger than Yuni, and have been willing to let us socialize them so that they can be friends! As of now, they are not BFFs, but they get along, even though the other dog is still a little standoffish toward Yuni. But Yuni just wants to play!

I have not been camping yet, [in Korea they regularly took Yuni on camping trips] but I hear there are a lot of places to go camping, and like I said earlier most taxis will take your dog, esp if you will tip them. Taxis are much cheaper here (the meter starts at .50 USD)

Also, if you call beforehand you can usually find a hotel that accepts dogs if you need to stay in one while looking for an apartment. All hotel staff speaks enough English to understand and communicate with you, and you can generally find most of the numbers or emails online.

Yuni, our little international traveler :D

Yuni always was a clown!She loved her toys and she loved birds, best of both worlds here ^^looks like she's got it rough these days...
