Taebagi is a tiny bundle of adorable fun! This young guy has a typical jolly affectionate shih tzu personality, and would make a great pet for a family with small children or anyone who would like a cheery playful little dog. Taebagi was rescued from a pound by Mrs. Jung. She was looking for a lost jindo, and ended up bringing Taebagi home because she just couldn't bear to leave him behind. He was set to be euthanized, probably because he only has one eye, and for that reason would be considered 'less adoptable'. Anyway, we don't think his missing eye makes him any less adorable. It doesn't slow him down at all. Despite whatever hardships he may have gone through so far in his short life, he still has an open, sunny personality and loves people. Although he's fully grown, he still acts like a puppy, so I'm guessing he hasn't had a lot of training yet. He's quite small for a fully grown male shih tzu. I think he must weigh around 5 kilos, so he'd be very easy to transport and take along anywhere. If you'd like to meet this little sweetheart, please let me know. He's waiting for you!

His name means awesome in English because he is AWESOME!!!!!! I visited this little guy twice and both times he was full of energy and one of the loudest in the shelter. I was a little hesitant at first but my heart just melted and I had to take him home. He has been with me for two days at home and when I go to work at school with me in my office. He is perhaps the sweetest thing ever. No barking or yapping and he is always up for a cuddle.

He is a little shy of strangers but once he is comfortable is wants to play. Sadly he only understands Korean so when I call him to 'come' nothing but 와 brings him running every time.
