Shu Shu, the Golden Retriever


Shu Shu, the Golden Retriever went to her furever home today. Yay!! Shu Shu (now Maddie) has a loving family to call her own and we couldn't be happier.

The Sikov family who recently lost one of their Golden Retrievers fell in love with this beautiful girl and decided to adopt her. Shu Shu (Maddie) also has a new BFF, her doppelgänger fur sibling!

Maddie was found at an empty building tied to a poll with another dog that already passed away from starvation. When the rescuer tried to take Maddie to treat her neck injury, Maddie cried and refused to leave her friend's side.

Now she can put her sad past behind and start an amazing and happy life with her loving family!

Shu Shu, the Golden Retriever

Shu Shu's info..

History: Shu Shu was found at a vacant factory in South Korea with another dog. When the factory closed down, they abandoned the dogs and left the site. When the dogs were found, Shu Shu's friend was already dead due to starvation and poor Shu Shu was keeping by her side. Shu Shu was bleeding heavily with open wounds around her neck from her tight collar, and when the rescuer tried to take Shu Shu to a vet, she didn't want to leave her friend's side. Her wound was treated immediately and she is now in a great shape. She was transported to the US in early August since big dogs have a hard time getting adopted in Korea.
