Boy is a handsome, gentle German Shepherd who desperately needs a foster or forever home. He is very skinny, and could use some extra TLC and fattening up. Boy is very mellow, and not as confident as your typical Shepherd. He really loves people, and seems a little afraid of other dogs, especially if they are barking. Boy is a young adult, and will go to the vet sometime next week for his health check and neuter. It's really hot this summer and Boy could really use a nice, cool environment to heal his body and mind. Please consider this sweet guy --- he deserves a chance!

Boy was taken to the vet today. He tested negative for heartworms.
Unfortunatelly, he injured one paw while in the shelter.
Poor Boy needs to gain some weight. He really needs a good foster or adoptive home and people willing to help him to become a healthy and happy dog.

Boy... what a lovely, lovely chap!!

His injured foot was MUCH better this weekend. In fact, I couldn't even see anything wrong with it!

Last weekend, I held his foot in my hand and dripped some antiseptic liquid onto the sore bit. This sweet and gentle giant whimpered quietly and, ever so softly, nibbled at my hand as if to say "it's sore! Please stop!" It was such a sweet thing. He could've bitten my hand, or even my face as I was eye-level with him, but instead the darling nibbled me so politely and gently. I fell in love in that instant.

Boy I hope you find your forever home soon!

Hi!
What's happening with this fella? Is he fattening up?
Also, I'm curious about your observations. Does it seem like he came from a home where they actually trained him and taught him things?
He sounds gentle and his eyes are extremely intelligent.

Hello lizneric! Thank you for your interest in Boy. He is still available for adoption.
The shelter manager requires at least one visit before an appl can be approved. Our next trip will be on coming Sat.
Please send your appl to [email protected] one more time, I checked my inbox and junk folders and I don't have it. Thank you!

Boy is a wonderful dog. I'm worried he won't survive at Asan through this winter: he is so skinny and he has the palpable sadness about him of someone who has never known any kindness. Please consider helping this under dog, he deserves it so badly.

I met Boy this last sat and fell in love! I have a few questions about his vaccinations before we bring him home on this sat. Is he up to date on everything? Rabies, distemper, etc? Is Mr. Park aware that we want to adopt him on sat and getting him ready, whatever that entails? Thanks, Liz & Eric!
