Waiting for a loving and caring family who can provide a forever home for this very special guy

Smiley was rescued and adopted by a home in Jangseunpo near the shelter in Yangsan. One day an alcoholic in the neighborhood was going to cook him when no one was home and started beating him. By the time a neighbor got there, Smiley was already beaten badly and his left eye was bleeding. Now he is back to the shelter with a blind left eye. Nami Kim, anti-dog meat activist and volunteering at the shelter, will handle all the documents required for overseas adoption including the quarantine documents. You will be required to pay for the transportation cost. If adopted, Smiley can depart from Busan. Despite all that he has been through, Smiley is very cheerful and friendly. He is great with other dogs too.

Smiley is currently in at a private shelter in Yangsan, South Korea. Male, a 5 year-old, breed – Great Pyrenees mixed, vaccinated and neutered, about 36 lbs, one eye blind.
If you are interested in adopting Smiley, please contact Nami with information about you and your family! Nami’s email: [email protected], [email protected]

    Is this dog able to be flown to another country? If we all share this on Facebook, can anyone adopt him no matter where they are from? And, yeah, the monster who would beat a defenseless living being should rot in hell!

    How can anyone be so cruel to a defenceless animal? I really hope that someone will adopt him and give him the loving home that he so deserves.

    Smiley looks like a lovely dog and I’m so truly sorry that this poor boy was so abused. He deserves a loving home filled with people who will treat him as the lovely companion he is. I have shared his information with many friends and asked them to share on. I hope this helps find a great home for Smiley all the sooner.

    Has Smiley found a home yet?? Please let us know…he looks like such a great pup!! How much would it cost to ship him to the us?? Also would he just be treated like baggage while shipped? That worries me…I have heard bad stories like animals dying in airplanes because it was too hot. They don’t seem to treat them as living, breathing creatures. Please let me know Naming, I’d absolutely love to give this sweet boy a home if the transportation isn’t too much!! How is he with cats?? For Smiley…one of the lucky ones!! : )
