Update 19 Sept 2013:
I got a phone call from Gorgeous Miso's foster mom yesterday. Her words were: "I've got to adopt her. I can't live without her!" Now THAT is what I like to hear! Congratulations Brie & Miso! I am SOOOOO happy for both of you! A match made in heaven! :)

Update 24 Aug 2013:
Gorgeous went into foster care 2 weeks ago and is in heaven! Her foster mom adores her with a capital "A"!! She says she is just the best dog ever! Every morning they go for a 2.5 mile run. She is extremely snuggly and affectionate & all-round awesome. I will get a more thorough update soon, as well as some pics. Thank you Brie for taking this young lady into your home!

Update 22 June 2013:
Gorgeous went out on a nice long walk with some volunteers & had a whale of a time! Her beautiful white fur is slowly turning brown though... :( I didn't even recognise her when they first brought her out. Please help Gorgeous!

Update 11 June 2013:
Beautiful Gorgeous is doing so much better now that her foot has healed. She has been moved up onto the hill now and has been walked by a few volunteers. She enjoys her walks immensely & is a pleasure on the lead. As she's so young and wonderful, I am really worried about how being at the shelter will affect her. Right now she is so highly adoptable, but I worry that in time she will start to fade away like the others there... :( Please foster or adopt this girl! International adoptions can also be arranged! Please contact me at [email protected] for more information.

Update 25 March 2013:
Good news is that Gorgeous' foot is clearing up pretty nicely. She still hasn't been taken for a walk though, as we don't want to open up the wound. She absolutely LOVES having people climb into her area and give her some love. She gives the best kisses!! Have a look in the comment section below for some new pics of this gorgeous gal.

Update 17 March 2013:
This stunning lady was very happy to see us yesterday! Unfortunately we couldn't walk her because her foot is still really sore. (Luckily it's not an open wound like it was last week.) She still would prefer to be recovering in a nice clean home...
She was also given a dewormer yesterday.
Volunteer Robert took some beautiful pics of her - check these out in the comments section below!


"Gorgeous!" was what came out of my mouth when I saw this girl and her friendly, friendly face attached to a wiggling body and a wagging tail!! The name stuck! It's so simple to say "Hello Gorgeous!" to Gorgeous, because she really is just so gorgeous!

This lovely young girl is an absolute prize. My guesstimate on her age is probably around 1 year old, judging by her wonderful, shiny teeth. She is at the perfect age to be adopted and live a long, happy and loyal life with a human family.

Mr Park rescued her last week (details TBC) and she is receiving special care on a foot injury which was acquired before she came to the shelter. Her right hind foot is missing quite a bit of flesh on the inner section and Mr Park's vet says she will be OK with some extra TLC. It would be far preferable though, to have her foot being treated in a nice, clean home instead of an outdoor shelter environment. (Especially as the weather gets warmer and humidity increases...)

Please consider adopting this sweetheart!

Funny you should say that... ;o) I was thinking maybe she would like to meet Lobo, y'know?

Just so beautiful! Gorgeous would like to go to her forever home sooner rather than later!

- Thank you Robert Rosen for taking these stunning photos.

My friend Patrick is visiting from the states this week so we put him to work with the dogs on the hill. Fresh food, treats, eggs, and water all around and a Frontline treatment for dessert. Pat got into the cage with this appropriately named Jindo and quickly made a sweet new friend.

Gorgeous is a heartbreaker who is so loving and truly has such a special energy. It is still amazing to me how resilient these animals can be given their situation. Their healing qualities can teach us all a lot about the best attitude to have no matter what life throws at you. Giving this precious girl a second chance is a win-win proposition!

She's beautiful! How is she on a leash? And with other dogs?

I am not sure... I will get her out next weekend and find out. She is certainly one of the most affectionate dogs at the shelter.

Gorgeous is well, GORGEOUS. She's so kind and affectionate as well, if you met her you wouldn't think she has spent the last several months at the shelter. While she does need some TLC, she is so anxious to meet you, but isn't overly rambunctious. I love this girl, and would adopt her in a heartbeat if I could! It's amazing someone hasn't snatched her up already, she's the perfect sized jindo and would do well in any size apartment/home. Please consider this gorgeous girl!

Not the best quality, but here is a short video of gorgeous Gorgeous!

She has somewhat taken my heart! Is there any chance Gorgeous can be transported to the UK?
Has anybody here had experience transporting this dogs this distance before and are there any volunteers who have met Gorgeous who could give an opinion on her current state/if they think she could tolerate the commute?
Thank you!

I'm sure others will have a lot more to say about Gorgeous but, for some general information, check out some of the resources listed through ARK: The first two deal with the UK specifically: http://www.animalrescuekorea.org/link/797, http://www.airpets.com/, http://www.animalrescuekorea.org/link/887, http://www.animalrescuekorea.org/link/912
