Bliss, we hope you can find a family to love you soon! Bliss is such an affectionate, loving, happy little dude!

We were so sad for him - he was abandoned and left at the city pound... He told us to please not be sad for him, as he's glad to be alive. The one thing he asks of us is that we provide him with some time of of lap time ^^ Lap-napping is not just a hobby for Bliss - he has made a career of it. Bliss wants people to know that he does not care whose lap he cuddles up in, as long as it's a comfy one. He would prefer, however, that the lap is attached to a member of his OWN family who enjoys this activity as much as he does.
Rescue story: Bliss was rescued from Busan city pound in Feb, 2012.

Adoption Fee: ₩70,000
Location: Asan - 아산
Living Situation: In a shelter
Adopted From: Asan Shelter

I was lucky enough to spend a bit of time last weekend with this guy, and he really is a sweetheart! He was very friendly, playful and energetic, but also really happy to snuggle into someone's arms for as long as he could! He was also quite good on the leash, and seemed to get along quite well with his roommates.

I hung walked and hung out with Bliss a little last Sunday. He is still in the back pen. What an affectionate, sweet, sweet guy. 2 weeks ago he was jumping up and really really wanting a walk but I didn't have time, and I promised him I would walk him the next time I saw him. He does love to be held, pet, and he has ultra-soft hair.

I live in Seoul with a small bachelorette- if someone is coming from there in the future maybe he would like a temporary foster mama? I dont go on vacay, am vegan and pretty active! Might get awfully warm for lil Bliss with his dark hair!

An update from Bliss's (now called 'Sooty') new family:

"Bliss is getting along great, although he does have a very severe ear infection and is having to wear a cone as a result right now. The vet said it'll take at least three weeks to clear up and after that he's going to begin giving him his other necessary vaccinations etc.

Oh, we've renamed him Sooty too, although I'm not so sure he realises that yet!

He's on the way to being toilet trained, he had one accident on the first day but since then he's been going on his pad every time! He's also learnt sit and even managed to sit and wait for his dinner today. He's a smart boy! Because of the cone he can't really sleep in the crate we have so he's just in a pen at night. He's very good about going in there though and doesn't whine or bark.

He seems to be really happy and is loving all the attention and adventures he's going on with us! I'll send some pictures through soon."

Thank you so much, guys! I'm so happy for Sooty and his new family. :)

Just thought I'd post a little update about Sooty since I've just uploaded some photos of him to our computer.

My goodness, looking back on these old photos of him I can't believe that's the same dog we have now!
These days he gets plenty of baths and a nice haircut every couple of months. We're forever being approached by people in the park telling us how cute he is, just about every person who meets him falls in love not only because of his cute looks but also his happy, gentle and friendly personality.

He's fully house trained now and has learnt all the basic commands like sit, stay, lay down, come and even 'shake hands'. In his first few weeks with us he wouldn't play with any of his new toys or lay in his new bed but over time he's come to love both. He likes to bring every toy he has out of his basket and always brings them to you to play. He actually has two beds now and sometimes slinks off for a little nap in one even when he could sit on the sofa. His favourite things are cuddles and walks. The only time he ever makes any sound is when we get his lead out of the cupboard for walk time, he spins around in circles and squeaks until you put it on him. He's such a cutie!

When we're out walking he likes to have a little sniff of the odd tree and he'll fetch a stick. But when we're walking he never really wanders far, he just loves to walk right beside you all the way.

His personality has really grown and there's so many cute things he does that we just love, he makes us laugh and smile every day and truly brings us so much joy. I'm so happy we adopted Bliss (and that we changed his name!!) we can't imagine our lives without him now!

Once again, thank you to everyone who helps with all areas of ARK! You guys are awesome!
