Rescue Me ID: 17-09-09-00373Bennett (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    Hi there, My husband and I have been living in South Korea since last November. A few weeks ago we found an incredibly sweet Shih Tzu puppy in the stairwell of our apartment building. We have looked everywhere for her owner and done everything we can think of to try and find where she belongs, but the more people we reach out to, the clearer it becomes that she was most likely abandoned. It is unfortunately quite common in South Korea for people to leave their pets behind when they move. We have a friend who said that it has happened in her apartment building twice over the last year. Since she has been with us for a few weeks, we have ... (Read More)named her Bennett. She is cuddly, playful and loves to be near people and other animals. She has seen the vet, who said that she is 1-2 years old and very healthy. As a bonus, she is already house trained! We have been to animal shelters in our area, and though people work very hard for the wellbeing of the animals, they are not places I can conscionably bring an animal who is perfectly healthy. They are completely overwhelmed by the number of animals needing care and have frequent outbreaks of canine distemper. I am reaching out to ask for your help in finding her a new home. You obviously have access to a ton of Shih Tzu lovers and maybe one of them is looking for a new addition. My husband and I will be travelling for the majority of the next year starting in November, otherwise we would keep her ourselves. It is possible to send her anywhere in the world with someone on an airplane for a relatively good price. To North America, it is only an additional $200 if the dog is flying with a person. I am really, really hoping to give Bennett the best life possible. Thank you for taking the time to read this and for any help that you can provide. All the best, Lauren (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in South Korea
    Dogs can make good pets in South Korea if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia South Korea Fact Sheet
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) Dogs are red-green colorblind.
