South Korean Dog Rescue Came With Nine Little Surprises!
Last December, we rescued Sepia, a dog who had been living in a junkyard and was about to be sold to slaughter with our South Korean rescue partner Jindo Love Rescue. Little did we know at the time that her rescue would really be saving 10 lives!
Our landlord had been alerted about her and another Jindo while our foster center was being rebuilt after a devastating fire. While we were tragically too late to save her sister who was sold for slaughter, we agreed to take Sepia as soon as possible and our landlord picked her up and brought her to safety. Despite what she had been through, she was so gentle and wanted to be loved.
When we took her to the vet we found out she was heartworm positive, and very pregnant. Exactly one month after her rescue, she gave birth in safety to 11 beautiful puppies. While two sadly didn’t survive, her nine others are absolutely thriving.
Sepia has been the best mom and is getting help from our Foster Mom who has been caring for them all and making sure she’s eating well and getting everything she needs too.
The puppies, Moose, Rocky, Mocha, Berry, Buttercup, Tutti, CC (short for cookies ‘n cream), Bubblegum, and Matcha, are growing faster than we can believe. They’re now about two months old and are busy exploring and learning about the world.
They’re meeting volunteers who love to play with them, and some of the other younger dogs at our foster center, and getting a lot of playtimes and some extra fun toys that will help them develop and keep them busy and learning, like this carrot snuffle mat.
We’re so excited to have our foster center back up and running, and that thanks to your support, we were able to take in Sepia just in time. After the puppies are fully weaned, she’ll begin treatment for heartworm and soon they’ll all be looking for their perfect forever homes.
