Introducing Roly, one of our dog meat survivors, who was found in a filthy cage with a number of other dogs, puppies & even chickens. Our incredible partner shelter in South Korea rescued both her and her brother Poly & now it’s their turn to finally have a chance at a happy life.

Roly is a sweet, smart & sassy girl with a big personality for a small dog. She has bundles of energy & loves to run & play off lead & also enjoys hiking with her foster carer. The enjoyment she gets from chasing around & running through piles of leaves outside whilst off lead is truly wonderful, so we’d love to find her a home with a secure garden where she can continue to do this. After a big play outside she loves nothing more than a cuddle & a snooze to recharge her batteries.

Similar to her brother Roly is a very clever little pup & has learnt lots of tricks since being a foster home. She already knows sit, stay, lay down, & play dead! Roly has also been walked on a lead but is a puller so she’ll need some training in this area. It’s important to note that the long journey over to the UK can set dogs back, so it’s best to assume you are starting from scratch when he arrives.

Roly has been introduced to lots of other dogs & likes to play with those that are similar or smaller in size. It does take her time become comfortable & she is generally quite submissive especially with larger dogs or those who approach her too fast; she will bark initially & then hide. Once comfortable she loves to play & for this reason we would consider homes with a calm, older dog who can help Roly with her confidence.

Roly really enjoys the company of her humans which has lead to her having separation anxiety. She howls & cries when left alone, so we are looking for adopters who can help her manage this & have time to spend building her up to being left alone. We do believe having another dog around will also help her with this.

Roly is a timid pup and hates loud noises or fast movements. She gets nervous when going outside in unknown places and it takes time to build her confidence. For this reason we will only be considering quiet, rural homes with adopters who will give her the time she needs to blossom. She hates water, & avoids puddles & will not walk in the rain, so adopters need to be prepared for this!

Roly has had an issue with itchy skin but her allergy tests results came back negative. Since being on a special diet she has not had any issues so this will need to be continued.

We are looking for someone who can provide Roly with patience & understanding to help her overcome her fears. She had an unimaginable start to life but has been given a second chance & we cannot wait to find her a home where she can thrive.

Please note, Roly won’t be travelling until at least the end of January. As a result, it may take us longer to reply to applications, as we need to prioritise those arriving sooner – thank you for your patience, and rest assured we’ll be in touch to discuss your interest in Roly as soon as possible! Please also note that the adoption fee for all South Korean dogs is £950.
