Kathy & PoPo: Adoption Pending!

Update as of July 12, 2015: We have found an adopter and if all goes well, the dogs should be adopted in September. Regina Lizik from Bark Pot wrote a touching article about the pair and Mr. Shin.

What a heartbreaking story.  Kathy and PoPo are mother and son Korean Jindos, ages 8 and 6 yrs old. Their owner loves them dearly and is heartbroken. He has some health issues and needs to retire to Korea, where the healthcare system is more accessible and less expensive than in the U.S. He has considered taking the dogs but is concerned about what will happen to them, should something happen to him once they are in Korea. No one will care for the dogs and they could end up at the meat market. He feels, as do we, that it is best for the dogs to find a new home here in the U.S. Kathy is super sweet and confident while PoPo is insecure, shy and very dependent on his mom, so they must go together. Both are typical Jindos, needing time to get to know someone new. Once they trust you, they love to give kisses. They have lived outside because other family members would not allow them inside but their owner would sneak in into his room for snuggle time. Kathy and PoPo have been well cared for and know basic commands and eagerly follow them. They must go together and do not get along with other dogs. They have not been around cats. We recommend a dog savvy home experienced with integrating high prey drive dogs with cats if cats are in the home. The dogs are located in Tarrytown, NY and are still with their owner. He is planning to leave at the end of June so time is of the essence in finding a home for Kathy and PoPo. Please help us circulate their story in hopes of finding a new home. These dogs cannot end up at a shelter. They will NOT do well. Please submit a Foster Home Application or Adoption Application if you can provide a home.  Dogs are spayed/neutered, UTD on vaccines.
