Meet Yaba

Yaba is estimated to be about 6 years old, and he is a Sapsali mix (Korean Terrier breed) that we rescued out of Aerinwon shelter.
This was an infamous private shelter where hundreds of dogs were placed at outdoor kennels without proper food and vetting, and so many of them suffered and had to endured hardship to survive. For many years, a lot of animal activists fought together to have Aerinwon shut down, and finally they were able to do so two years ago. However, hundreds of animals still remain at make-shift outdoor shelters after their original deteriorating building was demolished for safety. Most of these dogs are all waiting to be adopted by families in Korea, but chances for that to happen are very slim, especially for mix breed dogs like Yaba due to most Korean favoring a small non-shedding pure bred dogs.

Yaba is very friendly to people and his furry friends despite of what his life had been in the past. He is a very quiet, polite little fellow with the cutest underbite that just makes you smile by looking at him! He loves to eat, sleep, play and go for a little walk. We assume that he has not gotten much exercise while he was at Aerinwon shelter, so just imagine all the amount of new senses he is exposed to since his arrival to US!! The daily walking exercise will not only help Yaba to gain muscles, but will be a precious bond building time between the adopter and Yaba. We would love to find him a family who will surround him with lots of love from now on and also provide him a forever safe home. Since his arrival in the US, Yaba's foster family informed us that Yaba is so sweet, friendly and loving dog, and he does well with everyone including men and children. Yaba has been neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated, and he is ready for the forever home!

We believe people who adopt rescue animals because they are willing to accept a bit of imperfection, and willing to embrace, work/ train and love them no matter what baggage the animal had in the past. It can be challenging, but extremely rewarding. We have seen an amazing transformation in our adopted dogs, and it is our goal to provide all of them with the same opportunity. We are at our happiest when we see photos of our adopted animals smile with their new adoptive family, and we hope to find Yaba a loving family who would do the same.

Please consider adopting Yaba and making him part of your family! If you would like to apply to adopt Yaba, you can download an application here:
