A good home means:
a) A person with enough space for a dog of any size (the mom is a small/medium sized mixed breed, but the father is unknown, so you should be prepared for the worst).
b) Is either a Korean or foreigner who is permanent in Seoul (too many animals get abandoned by foreigners who find the dog too difficult to bring back home).
c) A foreigner who is capable and willing to take the dog back with them when they leave the country.
d) A person who has the time to take care of and train a puppy. Read here for more info.
We got the mother in a shelter, she was in a tiny cage with at least 6 or 7 other dogs. Animal shelters are not nice places for animals and since there are so many people who get animals and can't keep them here, the shelters are overflowing and often need to put the animals down after a short period of time. If you can't be a good dog owner then please, just enjoy the cute pictures, and please don't send an inquiry.
With that said... on to adorableness and puppies to tantalize you into adoption:
Introducing: Brownie, Squeaky and 물개 (mulkae) with their mother, Makkoli (The best family portrait we could get... puppies move around too much)
Brownie, Squeaky and 물개 at just 3 days old... They look more like hamsters than dogs
3 day old Brownie
Squeaky, Brownie and 물개, after 2 weeks... still not walking yet, but looking more dog-like
물개... does mean seal. We named her after this photo...

Three peas in a pod... or dogs in box.. or whatever...

So, if anyone has been tempted to adopt these cuties or know of anyone who might be interested, feel free to contact me at smileyjkl(at)hotmail(dot)com to discuss details. And, before contacting me, first, of course, decide if you fit the criteria at the beginning of this email. They are, of course, free... but you will need to spay them, and if you live in Seoul, you will need to register them. They were born on Dec. 13th. Grandmother lives in Yangsuri in Gyeonggido, but we could also bring the dogs to Seoul for adoption.
