We will ONLY consider applications that are reasonable driving distance from Chicago and will not be adopting him out of state, unless you are a repeat adopter that has adopted from us before.

We all know that Toki is adorable and his story pulls at heart strings but please keep in mind these dogs that have been rescued from Korea come to us with emotional damage and they will require someone with patience and understanding of their past and what they need in their future. There will be potty accidents- there will be times of panic and fear from something in his future from his past. He comes across as sweet but he still has some fears- such as being in a crate- having to go outside in bad weather- putting a harness or collar on-all these remind him of his pass and will take patience and understanding to help him continue to have a positive future. Taking on a dog with a past such as his is NOT for everyone. Please think long and hard before applying for Toki- he needs someone who will continue to help him learn about this strange new world and not someone who wants to adopt him because he is young and cute.

Hello, my name is Toki. I came from terrible conditions. I lived in a puppy mill / dog meat farm in South Korea. I am just over a year old and loving my freedom and my new life in the USA. I have adjusted pretty well the past couple months. I love playing with other dogs. I recently learned what toys are and I love to fetch balls. I am friendly with people and love to start and end every day cuddling in someone’s lap. My foster mom says I do not pick favorites and love everyone in the family equally. I walk well on a leash but I get a little nervous when I get approached with the leash. My new forever family will have to be patient with me as it may take a snuggle or two before I will let you attach my leash. I do love going on walks once we are outside. After living in a wire cage for a year, I now appreciate a soft bed and the comforts of a safe home. I am still working on my potty training. I go out before bed and hold it until I go out in the morning and I don’t even sleep in a crate, I sleep on a dog bed. It’s the daytime potty training that I still need to work on but I think a fenced in yard will help a lot. I love children, but really young ones might make me nervous and I would love to be able to run around in a fenced in yard. I am finally able to be a happy puppy and I have a lot of energy.

Toki is neutered- micro chipped- current on shots- was in quarrentine for 30 days prior to coming to the US from South Korea- he has a harness-leash- bed and some of his current food. His adoption fee is $900
