December 8th: Lobo made it to L.A. safe and sound, and is now learning what it is like to live in a house with a family who loves him. Congratulations, big guy! You deserve all the happiness that's sure to come your way from now on. Thank you, Helen and family!

November 24th: Lobo had a great day at Asan today. He went for a nice long walk with a couple volunteers and his Jindo friend, TJ, and enjoyed sniffing and kicking up dirt where ever he went! What a special dog this is; he is so calm and good-natured. I think anyone who meets and gets to spend time with this dog is a very lucky person.

October 4th: Lucky Lobo may have some travel in his near future, as there is a Jindo-enthusiast in the US who is interested in possibly adopting this handsome fellow!

"Some wonderful news, everyone! A family of Jindo lovers/advocates living in California are interested in adopting one of Asan's very own amazing boys, Lobo! What we most desperately need, is someone who will be flying to any one of these airports (San Diego/SAN (the closest), Los Angeles/LAX, Long Beach/LGB, John Wayne/SNA) sometime in November. The flier wouldn't be responsible for anything, other than allowing Lobo to be 'booked' onto their ticket. All costs and arrangements will otherwise be taken care of. Please spread the word and help us find this great dog a flight home! Contact me at [email protected] if you think you can help in any way!"

Please wish Lobo lots of luck, and contact us immediately if you can help get him overseas!

Sept. 2012:
These days, Lobo has been gaining a bit of a fan base with shelter volunteers! People find him very friendly and laid back, and he also seems to be quite quiet and well behaved! Please consider giving Lobo a home!

Lobo got some more heartworm prevention today and is looking as dapper as ever! He would sure love to find a home with someone who could take him on long runs or hikes, and just spend some good old quality time with him.

Aug. 2012:
Lobo received a healthy dose of heartworm preventative about three weeks ago, and is eagerly awaiting his new home. If you are interested in meeting this handsome fellow, or any other deserving dog at Asan shelter, please be advised that there are group volunteer visits almost every weekend. Helping animals and meeting wonderful dogs (and people!) is an excellent way to spend a Saturday or Sunday, and who knows, you might just meet your newest family member!

UPDATE: June, 2012
Lobo recently tested negative for heartworm, and was also neutered!
He is all set for his forever home- why don't you come on out to Asan to meet him?

Handsome, rugged and fiercely independent, this fellow has lone-wolf written all over him!

Lobo is a highly approachable individual without being overtly friendly. He is always happy to receive a pat, and happier to receive a treat, but the best thing imaginable according to Lobo, is to get out of his enclosure. Be forewarned: if you take Lobo for a walk, you'd better have some crazy persuasive skills in order to get him back to his pen! He doesn't seem to be the least bit aggressive, but describing this guy as "stubborn" would be putting it lightly!

That being said, he's actually quite pleasant on the leash (for the most part!) and seems to have a very endearing sensitive side underneath his resilient exterior. Once this steely lad lets his walls down, he will be putty in someone's hands!

Lobo has his eyes on the prize, and the best prize this fellow can conceive of is a one-way ticket out of the shelter. This lone-wolf will find the freedom he so desires in the arms of his forever family where he will finally be able to shake off the shackles of loneliness and fear for good! Let's help him get there!

Lobo is recovering well from his neuter surgery. He is a very nice dog and deserves a very nice family!

Any ideas on when he last received heartworm prevention?

Yes, thanks for reminding me, Clare! He received heartworm prevention about three weeks ago along with most of the rest of the dogs at the shelter. He's a healthy and handsome guy needing a good home!

Lobo is on his way to LAX as I type! I am so thrilled that this boy has been given the chance to live the life he truly deserves. Thank you, Helen and Derek for giving Lobo a brand new life. We all can't wait to see him living large in his new home in Cali! Thank you to Annie Eun, for couriering Lobo to LAX. Your generosity is amazing. :)
