KOMO News reported last week that a local dog recuse group in Kirkland is raising money to help an abused dog rescued from South Korea.
Journey is a 6-month-old Shiba Inu/Jundo mix that was set on fire with the rest of her litter mates on New Year’s Eve in South Korea. She was the only one to survive.
Journey suffered severe damage to her front paws that makes it difficult for her to walk.
She got the commitment from MEOW and then flew to South Korea, picked up Journey and brought her to Seattle on April 27.
Journey quickly won over her foster mom, who told KOMO, “I bent down to say hello and she looked at me, softly licked my face and began wagging her tail. There was so much softness and trust in her eyes – despite the ordeal that she’s been through.”
Journey has to hop around like a kangaroo to get around due to her injuries, and she has to be carried to go up and down stairs.
MEOW is trying to raise $2000 to fit Journey with custom socks, boots and braces for her feet so she can live a ‘normal’ and comfortable life in the future. Currently, they are about halfway to their goal.
Here’s a short video of this sweet girl:
