Help Summer the Dog Survive Her Injuries

On January 3 2014 Summer the Samoyed Jindo mix Dog from Asan shelter was found after being lost for 3 months. But she sustained horrible injuries surviving in Seoul, including a shattered pelvis and broken spine near her tail from a car collision. She also has heartworm. As the previous adopter's been out of the country recently and Julie Taylor Park, an instrumental volunteer in the ARK community, has fallen in love with beautiful Summer and shown dogged determination to find her, they agreed that Julie will take over and adopt Summer. Unfortunately the massive injuries were completely unanticipated. Let's show support and help out Summer, and Julie and Marco who spent days and nights on the streets looking for Summer for the 3 months she was missing. Thank you again for your support and words of encouragement and thank you once again to Julie & Marco for never giving up on Summer!
