Adoptable Dog: Emma, The 2-Year-Old Korean Jindo/Spaniel Mix

Written by:

A local Hoboken resident, Rosalie, reached out to us this week about sharing her new foster, Emma. She rescued her current pup Kona and now Emma through Korean K9 Rescue — a non-profit 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization that saves dogs from the meat trade in South Korea. Emma is up for adoption, and would make a wonderful pet to the right home!

Meet Emma! She is a 2 year old, Korean Jindo/Spaniel mix. She is smaller than she looks, weighing about 32 lbs. Emma was rescued from a blood sausage dog meat farm in Korea in June of 2017 and has been in foster care for several months being rehabilitated with the Brooklyn based dog rescue, Korean K9 Rescue. Emma is a sweet, curious, and playful but timid dog who needs a home with another dog to show her how to trust humans. She would do best with another friendly and calm dog. You can see Emma’s true personality come out around other dogs. Check out her videos and pics with her foster sister on Instagram @KonaFromKorea.

Korean K9 Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization that saves dogs from the meat trade in South Korea. Due to the stigma associated with mixed breed and “dog meat farm” dogs, most dogs have a low chance of being adopted in South Korea. So KK9R transports these dogs to the United States and finds loving forever homes for them. In the process, they are able to spread awareness about the brutal dog meat trade and be a voice for the voiceless dogs that are still suffering in the meat trade.

You can meet Emma at Korean K9 Rescue’s next adoption event on Saturday January 5th from 12:00PM-4:00PM on Bushwick Bark on Irving {181 Irving Ave in Brooklyn, NY}. For more information regarding the adoption event please click here.

You can also email for more info about Emma and other pups available for adoption.
