Chin Chin was saved around two years ago from someone’s backyard in Seoul, where she lived chained and alone. She’s been in Asan shelter ever since.

From one of Asan shelter volunteers: "Shy, but calm. I’ve taken her for a walk and given her a long brushing a few times now, and she’s very good and calm on leash and friendly/indifferent towards other animals. She doesn’t take much contact with people and is a bit on the shy side, but is friendly when approached. She seems easy to motivate with treats".

Chin Chin is a lovely and beautiful girl living up the hill next to the other bigger dogs in Asan shelter. She hasn’t received a lot of attention due to her introvert nature, but after getting to know her a bit you can see that she’s really a calm and gentle dog who likes slow and relaxing walks and being brushed. She might need some human interaction and training to come out of her shell, but with a loving, caring and assertive owner she can make an excellent companion to someone.

Please consider Chin Chin, she has been in the shelter for such a long time.

Health status:
Chin-Chin is heart worm free, received rabies and DHPPL vaccinations in June 2011, corona vaccination in Octoder 2011.

Chin-Chin is so beautiful. She is quiet and calm, and needs someone who can earn her trust and show her what it's like to be a part of a family.

Hello all,
It's been about 18 hours and I think Chin-Chin is bored.^^ j/k
The walk home from where I met Mr. Park yesterday was a little bit precarious--Chin-Chin (her new name might be Chin. Or Zen. Not sure yet. . .) doesn't like traffic and isn't sure about people. We had to be on a sidewalk for several blocks and she kept trying to turn around and go back, which is understandable, but I talked to her and coaxed her all the way home.
When we got inside the building, she wasn't scared and she climbed the stairs like she's done it all her life!!! I couldn't believe it! She went right into the apt and paced around for about 2 hours, sniffing everything. I opened the door to the balcony and she liked to check out what was going on in the neighborhood below. I don't think she's ever seen it from that high up before. She let me cut all the knots out of her fur without even blinking an eye. I gave her a big rawhide bone and she settled down on her bed, like it was just another day.^^
She ate her dinner (no problems with a combo of canned and dry!) and then. . .wait for it. . .went DOWN the stairs on her own!! (seriously, if you've ever had to carry a 60 # dog up and down 3 flights of stairs 3-4 times a day, this is a BIG deal . . .) She slept pretty much the entire night--partly on her bed and partly next to mine.
We've only been on three walks but I'm pretty sure she's house-trained or at least clean enough of 'her' space that she wants to poop'n'pee outside. She has no response to the crazy, barking guard-dogs in my neighborhood, except she doesn't seem to like to walk past them.
**Two things that are so cute, I have to mention them--
when she walked past my standing mirror, she looked right in a wagged her tail like nobody's business!! She looked and looked for 'the dog' and then looked behind the mirror and went into the bathroom to look (the mirror is next to the bathroom door) and finally just stood in front of the mirror wagging, wagging, wagging her tail. I think she wants a buddy. . .
also, when I gave her back her rawhide bone this morning (I didn't want her to chew the entire thing in one go), she put it on her bed--very firmly--and then used her nose to 'scrape dirt' over it, except of course, she wasn't scraping anything, just going through the motions.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure she's happy and content. I know I am.^^
