Barbie – Young’s Rescue in Yangsan City (Fostered in Portland, OR)

Young is one of our SKD board members, she rescued Barbie in Yangsan City in 2019. After first being sent to boarding she spent some months at Yim’s training school. She is very clever and energetic. Her beautiful brindle coat and brilliant smile will draw you in. Barbie’s energy and smarts will make you fall in love.

Our Barbie girl is a Jindo mix and has the distinctive pointy ears to match. She loves to walk and even jog and can go for miles without breaking a pant. Like many Jindos, Barbie also needs exercise for her mind. She responds well to training activities and long lasting chews.

The ideal home for Barbie will have a fenced yard for running and relaxing in the fresh air. She does have a prey drive which means no cats or other small animals. The home does need to continue her training especially her manners towards other dogs on leash. Barbie will take some time to adjust to new people so please be patient.

Barbie is currently fostered in Eugene. She has made excellent progress in her loving foster home with lots of walks and bonding.  A long term foster would also be welcome.
