About Aleck (S. Korea) hz
Adoption Fee: $800.00
Hello there! My name is Aleck, and I have an incredible story to share with you. Rescued from a dog meat farm in South Korea in 2021, I narrowly escaped a life of unimaginable hardship. Now, I'm ready to embark on a new chapter filled with love, joy, and endless tail wags. Here's a little more about me:
Breed: Jindo mix
Age: 4 years
Weight: 51 lb
Highlight(s): Calm, Happy, Rarely Bark
People Lover: Despite my challenging past, I have a heart full of love for humans. I'm not shy around strangers and quickly warm up to new faces. During my first visit to the vet, I even approached the nurses with confidence, eagerly accepting treats. I can't wait to shower my forever family with affection and loyalty.
Dog-Friendly: I get along splendidly with other dogs! Currently staying at a doggy hotel, I've become accustomed to the company of my furry friends. I'm well-behaved and don't cause any trouble. Together, we can enjoy fun playdates and create lasting memories. I have not shown any aggression towards people and other dogs. I also have no resource guarding issues towards people and other dogs.
Prey Drive Alert: It's important to note that I have a strong prey drive. During walks, I may chase after cats if they cross my path. To ensure everyone's safety, it's best to keep me leashed and away from feline friends. Additionally, I might be tempted to chase squirrels and bunnies, as they are new and exciting creatures for me.
I am searching for a compassionate and understanding forever home where I can continue to heal and thrive. If you're an experienced pet owner who can provide a secure environment and help me manage my prey drive, we could be the perfect match!
Energy Level: I have a moderate energy level. I'm very calm at home. I like to chill out or take a nap. It doesn't mean I don't like walks. I love walks! I'm not nervous in new areas. I'm curious and adventurous.
I get along with:
Fears: Unknown/none observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition. I haven't shown any signs of separation anxiety and I don't have escape tendency.
Leash skills: Yes. Please be prepared to continue training.
House trained: Yes. Please be prepared to help me learn where to go in my new home.
Health notes: I have been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.

Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives. Although a 1-on-1 trainer is often not needed, it is good to have someone in mind in case any problematic behaviours arise. Most bad behaviours can be modified if caught early enough, so make sure to nip undesirable behaviours in the bud before they become serious problems.
Basic training should be taken seriously, but should not begin until your dog is well settled in - at least a couple of weeks. After you feel your new dog is relaxed and comfortable in their new home, check out training courses in your local area. Even basic beginner courses like those taught at a local pet store can have a huge benefit in helping your dog learn to socialize and get used to being in public situations, all with the added benefit of strengthening their bond with you.
The age and breed of a dog is usually an educated guess, so we are not able to guarantee the accuracy of age or breed of our dogs.
Information included in the profile is provided to us from the international rescuer or local fosters. LALDR does not have access to overseas dogs and cannot always verify the accuracy of their descriptions. Every dog is an individual and can act differently in different situations based on the person adopting them and the environment in which they live.
Normally, we will not approve adoptions to homes with children under 12 years of age. However if a dog has been determined to be good with children we will approve applicants with children 8 years or older. More information can be found on our website.
