Kkhan-Cho (깐쵸)

soo sleepy...

Quick Bio

Age: Young (1-3 years old)
Gender: Male
Breed: Schnauzer (Miniature) / Mix
Size: Small (under 7kg)
Colour: Brown & Black
  • Up-to-date with vaccinations
  • Good with dogs
  • House trained

Adoption Status: Adopted

I believe he is a Schnauzer mix but uncertain as he was an abandoned puppy when I found him. I adopted him and he has been living with me for just under a year now. Next month I will be moving to a Gocitel (ie: one room) which don't allow pets, otherwise I would definitely keep him. About 깐쵸: He loves to cuddle in my lap and go for walks. Whenever I come home, he immediately grabs his chew toy and runs over to play catch, wagging his tail behind him. He is not a picky eater and enjoys all types of dog food and treats, especially milk bones. He has been trained to go in my tile bathroom near the sink floor in emergencies and knows plenty of tricks (in Korean), such as sit, jump, turn, bow and shake. Similar to a cat, he's self sufficient and is left to roam my house, without much worry about chewing up things. I do suggest that if you adopt him, take him out before and after you go to work or midday, just to stretch his cute little legs. He's a furry dog (looks bigger in the picture than he really is) and loves to cuddle. Here is a video of him falling asleep in my lap: http://www.facebook.com/#!/video/video.php?v=10150612945014418

Adoption Fee: ₩50,000
Location: Seoul - 서울

Have you asked your landlord if they would accept an extra deposit?

Have you tried to look for a pet-friendly apartment through a realtor?

Where did you adopt him from? Have you asked them if they could take him back? Also, they might have a list of people who were interested in adopting Kkhan-Cho earlier this year, and someone may still be interested.

Please respect that ARK's mission is rescue, not rehoming-- and rehoming should not be used as a first choice of "solution" when landlord issues arise.

If answers to the questions above (as outlined in the adoption listing rules under "before putting your pet up for adoption") can't be provided, then I will have to remove Kkhan-Cho's listing again.

Karen, I already mentioned that he was an abandoned dog which I took in. As for finding better accommodations, it's not like I have a choice. I understand you are trying to probe into every little option, but don't you think I've already done that? Otherwise, why would I be posting here? I've already asked my neighbor who has a pet if she knew anyone who is looking to adopt, as well as distant relatives. However, I don't trust them to know how to care for a pet properly, which is why I would prefer a foreigner or someone with prior experience. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Apologies, I misread-- I understood he was found by a 3rd party and you'd adopted from them.

Sad to say, but many people don't try to negotiate with landlords at all, actually, or know that it's possible to find dog-friendly apartments in Korea and then just give up their pets without making an effort :( Sorry for sounding intrusive, but I can't know what solutions you've already tried unless you provide the information in your post.

So your new landlord wouldn't accept an extra deposit, then?

I discussed getting housing allowance with my employer (also landlord)- to find my own apt but was denied.

Any updates on this little one? Was he able to find a new home? You must be moving soon, so I hope so!

Yes, Lela has kindly adopted her and Kkhan-Cho is doing well adapting to his new home. I miss him a lot but very happy to know that he went to a great home. Thank you for all the help Animal Rescue Korea! You are a wonderful group.
