Message from Jack Cole's (formerly Duke) Dad: "Everything is going great. We named him Jack Cole. He was very scared at first, still is around new people, but he is warming up really quickly. He is well behaved, he learns quickly (he is already house trained), and everyone loves him. Take a look at how playful he can be (video attachment included). The blanket is on his cage because he learned how to climb out (like I said he is a quick learner)."

Duke is 1 of 8 puppies that were brought to the shelter when they were only weeks old. He is now three-months old and is looking for his best-friend for life!

Duke is one of my favorites of the 8 puppies simply becuase he is so stinkin' adorable. He has short little doxie legs and his brothers and sisters tower above him. But, he has no small-man complex; he is sweet as pea (is that a saying?).

He spent one week in foster care out of the shelter when volunteers found his tummy was tough as a board and very distended. The vet did x-rays and found an exorbinant amount of chicken bones in his tummy. He recieved medication to help break-up some of the larger bones that were keeping the smaller ones from passing. He also tested positive for Whipworm and a bad case of Campylobacter. We kept him in foster care for one week, while he took meds, but has since had to be returned to the shelter, since the volunteer could only commit for one week.

It was heartbreaking to return him back to the shelter and then to watch them turn around and feed him a raw chicken drumstick and him swollow it in literally one bite. He took it down whole!

Shelteres in Korea are no place for a puppy. They are fed poor diets, including only every other day, they have human interacting for only a couple of hours 1 time a week, and they have to fend for themselves in a pen with cranky adult dogs who have already learned you have to fight for what you want in the shelter. Please, if Duke speaks to you, come and meet him. Help him! He needs human intereaction and help to make him the best possible dog he can be so that he will be more adoptable.

If you would like to meet Duke and are interested in helping him up out of a bad situation, email me at [email protected].

You can find the foster/adoption application here: http://www.animalrescuekorea.org/adoption-application . Please fill it out completely. It will require you do a bit of research for a couple of the questions.

Someone's coming Duke! Hold on sweet boy!

How close do you have to be to the shelter in order to foster? I used to foster in Canada for a dog rescue organization and would love to do it here! I'm in Yeosu though, so I do not know if it's too far! If not, I would love to fill out a form and help foster!! If Duke needs a good home until he finds his forever home I would love to help him :) Please let me know. Thanks!
