Ddoksoonie has found an AMAZING forever home! She really hit the jackpot! Andrew (her new dad) has experience raising and training high-energy dogs like Collies and Bearded Collies (similar to a Sheepdog). Andrew and Marissa are a very active, mature and responsible who have been waiting for the perfect dog and found it in Ddeoksoonie.
Ddeoksoonie will spend her days going on runs by the river in Bundang as well as going on hikes with the weather warms up. When the big move is made back to the US after several more years, she'll live out her days in sunny California with her Bearded Collie cousin, Rio. :)

Thank you SO much to Andrew and Marissa adopting this fantastic dog.

*UPDATE* 2/11
Ddoksoonie has had an antibodies test and she is up to date on all her vaccinations. She was recently spayed and will have stitches removed this week. She is curious about and friendly with other dogs. She was roaming the clinic freely but there was a very minor incident with a maltese (maltese was trying to get into the food bowl while Ddoksoonie was eating so she growled and nipped at the Maltese. The smaller dog was NOT injured in any way. She was giving a warning) so now she is in one of the big dog cages. She is being walked three times a day but otherwise this poor gal is stuck in a cage. PLEASE if you have the space and time for this lovely dog, send me your adoption application.

Ddoksoonie is still available! This friendly gal is looking for a home with access to outdoor space, willing to give her the exercise she needs and lots of love. She's only 22g so she's not a huge dog. Please don't overlook this beautiful girl!

Ddoksoonie (똑순이) is a gorgeous 2-3 English Sheepdog.
*UPDATE* 1/15

Ddoksoonie is 22kg. The nurse at the clinic said they aren't sure if she's fixed or not. I don't know if it's because she's so furry or not. I wasn't able to make it to the clinic this past weekend but will go this weekend. The vet is requiring someone who has some sort of outdoor space adopt her.

Ddoksoonie was abandoned by her owners at a vet in Seoul. The vet is currently doing a temporary foster and has been trying to find a loving home for her, but as you can imagine, it's not easy finding a home with such a big dog. A Korean friend of mine saw the dog on her walk home and was taken in by this cute dog so she stopped into the vet to check her out. That is when the clinic staff told her about the dog's current situation. My friend reached out to me since I adopted my dog from ARK. I will be going this weekend to talk to the vet to get more detailed information about Ddoksoonie as well as to get some clearer photos and see her personality. This is the information I have from my friend so far:

"The vet said Ddoksoonie is about 2-3 years old. She is an English Sheepdog and is trained in commands (only in Korean though). She is housetrained and the animal hospital staff are maintaining this by taking her on walks outside. Since she is still young, she is quite playful."

The staff at the clinic said they are not looking for an adoption fee but will require that the dog be microchipped through them. I am asking a 75,000w adoption fee that will be donated to a shelter in Korea of your choice. *MORE DETAILS TO COME SUNDAY*

If you are interested in being a foster for this beautiful girl, or even better, providing a loving FOREVER home for her, please fill out the adoption application available here on the ARK site and send it to me.

I know she was abandoned by Korean owners but that's all I know as of right now. I'll get more details tomorrow because I'm very curious too.
