Upon calling the vet for an update I learned that poor Toto has passed away. The vet claims that he become very ill with diarrhea and vomiting after I brought him in, but the story is a bit unclear. I'm still searching for answers. Toto was so full of life and joy just one week ago, it's difficult for me to believe that he could go from happy and healthy to dead in such a short period of time. Thank you to everyone who showed interest in helping this dear dog, I'm so regretful that this is how the story ends.

This little dog is such a sweetie!

One day I was out walking with my dog, a jindo mix, and this little happy looking white dog came bounding up to us. The dogs sniffed and played and my boyfriend and I debated what to do. The dog was friendly- not a all like the strays we frequently encounter. It also looked as if its face had been groomed in the past few weeks, but its body was covered in mats and was quite dirty. There was no owner in sight, no collar, and we'd never seen the dog before. The dog followed us home. He was a bit afraid of going up the stairs into the apartment but, with some treats and some encouragement came right along. He seems to respond to sit and come in Korean.
Unable to keep him in our apartment, we brought him to the vet. The vet will keep him 10 days (Apr. 30- May 9) while looking of the owner. I put posters all around the area we found him, and the vet made a 'found' ad online. I've been checking the online sites and haven't seen any lost listings, so it's time to start thinking about this little guys future and to find him the home he deserves!
I'm unsure about whether he is house train, or walks well on a leash, but he was very well behaved in the crate on the way to the vets office. (I'm not even sure if it was a male or female due to the long mated hair) The vet doesn't speak a lot of English so I will try to get someone to help translate and provide more information later in the week!

There is an potential foster family located in Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do. Hopefully all will work out and at the end of the 10 period he will go there! But he will need to find a permanent home before the end of the year.

I'm sorry, I called for an update today and was informed that Toto is dead. The vet said he died 5 days ago, but it doesn't make a lot of sense, I'm still searching for answers. :(

Oh no, the poor dear! This just stinks of sketchiness!
