Yay! We are so happy for this darling boy and his new daddy!

Hiro is settling in well to his new home =)
Unfortunately he has tested positive for heartworm. As you all know, heartworm treatment is quite expensive. Any donations would be appreciated.


Why is this sweet boy still waiting for his forever home??!!!



Everyone that visits this sweet boy falls in love with him! He is still waiting for that right person to come along and give him a chance! Please consider helping Hiro along his way by fostering and sharing his information.


Hiro enjoyed having visitors this weekend =) He just loves people. This is what they said:

"Hiro was very happy to see his visitors today. He even got to go on a walk and stretch his legs! He was given heartworm prevention today and some yummy sausages to go with it. He is a very happy dog who craves affection."

Hiro was given heartworm prevention meds on March 15th =)

UPDATE: Feb 9th

I went to visit Hiro again today. I fall more and more in love with this boy everytime I see him. He just loves people and it's really hard not to love him back. I really feel that Hiro was someone's well cared for pet... He is good with people and is craving human attention. He just isn't suited to shelter life at all.

I took him for a little walk, even though he is a little jindo - he sure is strong! He was so excited to go outside! I had such a difficult time leaving Hiro today.. he was clearly upset when I walked away =(

Please consider fostering or adopting this beautiful boy!


Yesterday, I was able to meet Hiro. He is a really friendly dog. Hiro is clearly used to being around people... it seems like he was someone's pet.... not a chained guard dog. He loves attention and being touched. Naturally, he seems quite stressed at the shelter.

Hiro is a strong boy and would need a home with someone that is accustomed to handling medium-large breeds. I'm sure he would make a great hiking companion and like most jindos he would probably be content living in an apartment.

Please consider fostering or adopting our beautiful Hiro.

Hiro is a new dog at Asan Shelter. He was saved from the pound by Mr Park.

He looks like he was someone well-cared for pet. He was in good shape when he arrived at the pound. Hiro is about 2 years old. We don't have much information on him at the moment, but will hopefully have more soon!

Please keep checking his profile for updates =)

Hiro is one of the nicest Jindos I've ever met. He is 100% love. A nice, stocky build - he would make a fabulous running partner. He would also love to cuddle you and kiss you to death! :) Sujin took him for a lovely long walk and we tried to get her to put him back to take another dog...she was very reluctant ;) I don't blame her! Look at him!

May 31, 2014: Hiro received Frontline, and heartworm prevention. He also got a bath! He didn't love it, but he did pretty great! Will comment with pictures soon.
