Doogie's Journey

April 16th 2017  ---  present 

Dog Meat Trade Survivor  --- South Korea

What we know about Doogie so far:

  • Approc 5-7 years? 
  • Very inquisitive, loves to be out-and-about!
  • Loves walks, and needs exercise.
  • Has had ZERO accidents indoors! 
  • Loves to be touched and loved and scratched!
  • Very intelligent!
  • GREAT with other dogs and People!
  • Shiny, smooth and soft coat-- like Velvet!
  • Has very long eyelashes! 
  • LOVES chew toys! 
  • Barky - not ideal for apartment living. 

We committed to taking Doogie who was rescued from SaveKoreanDogs.org, an amazing small rescue run by Nami Kim and her volunteer Jenny whom we have been working with for the past few months.

We were aware of the dog meat trade in Asia but there are so many more details we have only come to learn about recently. For example, puppy mills are as horrific as they are here in the states, the only difference is when the breeder dogs are no longer useful they are then sold to the dog meat farms. We don't want to upset anyone here with the cruel details of what their death is like once they arrive at the dog meat farms (you can google it, but only if you are feeling really brave).

It is important to mention that people like Nami and Jenny who are dedicating their lives to trying to save dogs from the dog meat trade, are also working hard to lobby to get the laws changed. The idea of dog meat as a delicacy is something that is popular with mostly an older male generation. Like anything that requires a progressive approach, it's younger people that are brave enough to go up against a very old culture and try to change minds with compassion towards animals.

At Camp Cocker we are dedicated to re-home dogs in need, and Doogie fits that description well. 

If you would like to donate towards Doogie's vetting, boarding, and medication costs, please do! We are always playing catch up with doggie medical bills and they add up fast! You can be a part of his rescue story.

We rely 100% on all of our support in the form of small donations. We run on $5 donations and volunteers! Please consider donating just $5 so we can get on top of our mounting medical bills.
