History: Rocket was surrendered by his owner in S. Korea, since he was living in a 1 bedroom apartment. Mixed breed dogs have a terrible time getting adopted in Korea and will either be euthanized or sent to the dog meat farm, so a dog rescue stepped in to save his life. He was brought to the United States to live a happy life with a new family. Fostered in: Seal Beach, CA
Type of home: Family with school age children or older, or single, active person. Adopter should have the time, commitment and resources to train and take care of an active, energetic puppy. Rocket will require a lot of exercise and mental stimulation. Jindo (Korean national breed) are exceptionally smart, and Rocket is a great example of this quality! Crate trained: Yes, but doesn't care for it. Needs practice with proper usage of crate (short periods of time during the day and to sleep at night) for him to learn the crate is a good thing!
