Immediate Foster/Adopter Needed!
March 28, 2013: Any Jindo owner knows that just like wine, Jindos get better with age. Coco & Gigi are at their peak! This calm, gentle brother/sister pair was unfortunately surrendered to a NYC high kill shelter after one of their owners died and the surviving owner felt she could not care for Coco & Gigi anymore. Scared, sad and confused, Coco & Gigi had their entire world turned upside down. For 11 years, all they’d known was a safe, loving home and now they were separated in a cold, death-scented shelter. Without securing a foster home first, Treasured k9s immediately pulled these two and got them to the safety of our veterinarian, Rutherford Animal Hospital. Coco & Gigi arrived and spent the first few days in the kennel runs where they were frightened, confused and utterly depressed. After a few days they developed kennel cough and were moved to an isolation room. To our surprise, Coco & Gigi began to relax once they were insulated from the noise and activity of the clinic. Coco & Gigi have come out of their shells and have been promoted to HR assistants, spending the day working in the HR office upstairs and happily returning to their cages in the isolation room to sleep for the night. Coco & Gigi are taking treats from strangers and are becoming more social by the day. This sweet pair is super easy and requires very little. Walking them is a breeze; both are arthritic and are satisfied with a short walk every day. They get along very well and have no interest in arguing over food or attention. Due to the kennel cough we have not evaluated them with other dogs but the notes from the shelter indicated the owner said they were good with other dogs. Coco has recently decided that he loves to be pet, especially on the cheeks and behind. As a typical female, Gigi watches him enjoying the attention, content to be lounging on her bed. Gigi does like to be pet but not as much as Coco. We do not know how they are with cats or kids. Typically Jindos have a high prey drive and are not good with cats. These two are calm and quiet so young, active children may be too much for them. They’ve outgrown the antics of young Jindos and Coco and Gigi represent all that is good and endearing about the breed. Coco & Gigi have a lot of life left in them as Jindos can live to be at least 16 years old. We realize senior dogs require more medical attention and Treasured k9s would be happy to find a forever home, even if it’s a forever foster where we cover cost of medical expenses. Coco & Gigi are ready for a home. Please, foster or adopt this wonderful pair. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Coco & Gigi please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website to submit a foster or adoption application www.treasuredk9s.org . Coco & Gigi are still at Rutherford Animal Hospital in Rutherford, NJ.

Bell is Noelle!
March 2, 2013: It is with great sadness we report that Noelle crossed over the rainbow bridge.
January 18, 2013: Noelle ran from a multiple car accident on Interstate 95 in White Marsh, MD back in August 2011. They were traveling home to New Jersey. After all this time, Noelle's nearly 17-month-long saga has come to a joyous conclusion! Treasured k9s pulled Noelle from the Manhattan AC&C and through FaceBook, found out she was Noelle. On January 16, 2013 We reunited Noelle with her owner Rev. Lou Scurti.
