December 10th: Sand potentially has some exciting times coming up soon. Hopefully this sweet boy will be able to hang on in this bitter cold just a little while longer. He deserves many good things, and they should be coming to him soon!

November 24th: What a hard life it is for Sand staying in his small cage on the hill at Asan Shelter. This boy needs a friend who can take him for a run every day and give him a nice, warm place to sleep at night. I will cross my fingers that your angel finds you soon, Sand.

November 11th: Sand was taken for a nice long walk yesterday and enjoyed every minute of it. Sand really needs a place where he can stretch those long legs of his! Please keep this long-legged boy in your thoughts!

November 3rd: Check out Sand and some of his friends in this video of Asan Shelter dogs who are desperately needing homes:

October 13th: Sand was neutered and received heartworm prevention this weekend to make sure he remains healthy and adoptable! :)

October 6th: Sand is a rambunctious young pup with a lot of energy! He really loves to get out of his cage and stretch his long legs. Poor Sand is not happy at the shelter; he wants a friend to run and play with every day. He is so happy and excited to see visitors, but sad to see them leave at the end of the day. This wonderful dog deserves a real home and family. Please think about Sand!~

September 22nd: Sand got walked by a nice volunteer this weekend, but this young boy needs a lot of work on his leash. He is just so excited to get out and about that he pulls a lot...but can you blame him? It is a shame that Sand and his long legs are cooped up in his cage at Asan. Sand really wants someone who will run, walk, and play with him every day.

Sand is a young, handsome Afghan mix (I think) who came to Mr. Park's shelter from the Asan City Pound. He is a playful, happy dog who has no idea why he wound up at a shelter. Sand is very friendly, very affectionate, and very skinny! Although his breed is typically slender, he could stand to gain some weight! His paws are gigantic, and I think that Sand has some growing to do yet!

Sand is not at all aggressive, and was very, very happy to have some visitors come to his cage. He is a young dog with so much potential --- it would be a shame for him to spend more time than he has to at Asan. His fur is matted in some spots, but over all in good condition, all things considered. If you are interested in this handsome young pup, please contact me at [email protected].

That horrible dirty collar... I hate those collars. He probably was living chained somewhere.
Poor baby.

The absolute CUTEST thing about this dashing young man is his curly-whirly-whiskers!! I fell in love as soon as he stuck his nose out of the gap in the fence to say hello to me. Adorable!!

I like how Daisy is giving him a can of dog food to play with! Hahaha - Hope there is someone out there who can give him a home and a real toy to play with.

Sand reminds me of a borzoi golden retriever mix.. or a saluki golden retriever mix. (:

What a beautiful dog! I wish he could come visit me out in the countryside. He'd have so much fun running through the fields and chasing the birds. A dog like him deserves space to run and play! :) I hope he finds it.
