  • How we can help if you need to surrender a Jindo

    If you have already spent some time reading our website, you will see that we do not have a physical location – we do not have a sanctuary nor a dedicated kennels; we simply cannot take all and every Jindo that is ‘offered’ to us.

    We are always full, and rely on the generosity of the general public to open their homes to act as foster families – finding suitable foster homes for Jindos is not an easy process, as I’m sure you’ll understand. And one that has behavioural issues may take longer still. As we are constantly networking a list of Jindos already facing euthanisation in high-kill West Coast shelters, (US bred, born and abandoned – of which the number is staggering), there is no guarantee that we can help you find a new home for your Jindo quickly, but we will certainly try should you need us to. 

    What we can do to help, then, is network your Jindo for a new forever home or a foster, (on petfinder, adopt-a-pet, our own website, and facebook), but this may take time, and is of course dependent on your answers to the questions below – please also supply us with at least 3 good quality photos of your Jindo: 

    1. Age and weight

    2. Spayed/Neutered or not

    3. Vaccination status (rabies, DHLPP etc)

    4. Being wormed/flea/tick treated monthly?

    5. Any medical issues (when did he/she last have a vet check up?)

    6. How does he/she behave around men/women/children/strangers/people on the street/other animals

    7. Normal daily routine (food/exercise)

    8. Indoor or outdoor dog? (or both)

    9. Level of training (what commands does he/she know/how does he/she walk on leash/reaction to seeing other dogs when on leash)

    10. Any particular likes/dislikes (how is he/she about being handled/petted – any sensitive areas, like ears, feet etc.)

    11. How does he/she react to riding in the car/going to the vet/can he/she be lifted 

    12. Has he/she ever bitten any other animals/people? If so, what was the severity and was medical action needed?

    13. Any separation anxiety issues or other behavioural issues?

    14. Where did you obtain the dog from and why are you attempting to rehome the dog now? How long have you owned the dog?

    15. Have you contacted any other rescues for assistance?

    16. What are the best methods of contact for people interested in either fostering or adopting your dog?

    17. Address and zip code of location of dog? (to enable us to list on

    There is also a new service provided through Adopt-a-pet that you can try which may be helpful in trying to rehome your dog – there is a link to this at the bottom of our Adoption page:

    Thank you.

    Do you have pet allergies?

    Don’t Let Pet Allergies Get You Down

    If someone in your home has been diagnosed with allergies by an allergist, carefully consider if you can live with or manage the symptoms. Children may outgrow pet allergies while others are able to manage their symptoms and keep their pet in their home.

    The Following Have Proven Effective In Managing Pet Allergies:

    • Minimize contact with the animal and create an area free of pets, such as the bedroom.
    • Vacuum and clean floors, walls, ceilings, and furniture on a weekly basis.
    • Place a high efficiency particulate air purifier (HEPA) in the home, in addition to filters on vents.
    • Enlist the help of non-allergy suffering family members to clean the litterbox and pick up after the pet.
    • Frequently wash clothing and bedding materials, including the pet’s bed.
    • Frequently bathe and groom the family pet.
    • Consider removing dander attracting materials such as upholstered furniture and draperies; replace wall-to-wall carpeting with wood, tile, linoleum, or vinyl flooring that won’t harbor hair and allergen causing molecules.

    Additional Treatments For Pet Allergies Include:

    • Immunotherapy (allergy shots)
    • Steroidal and antihistamine nose sprays or medication
    • Or a combination of both approaches

    Consult with your physician and/or allergist to determine the best course of action for your family to live happily with your family pet.

    Renting successfully with pets

    You’ve found a home that accepts pets. Now what? Here are a few tips that can help you be a successful pet tenant that your landlord will love. 

    • · Offer your new landlord the opportunity to visit you after you’ve moved in so they can meet your pet and see how well you keep your current rental unit. 
    • · Try to take a few days off when you move into a new place to help your pet adjust. It’s new for your pet too, and sometimes even the most quiet and calm pets will get anxious in new surroundings and make excessive noise, disturbing the neighbors. It often helps if you can be there to help your pet adjust to the new home. 
    • · Be a good neighbor. Make sure your pets don’t disturb your neighbors, whether it’s with noise, wandering loose or unsightly messes. Remember that your landlord has to deal with complaints and won’t be happy if it keeps happening! 
    • · Be diligent about addressing any concerns your landlord may have. If an issue arises about your pet, make sure you understand what the problem is and take immediate steps to address it. For example, your dog may bark excessively when you first move in as a result of being unsure of the new surroundings. Try another temporary solution (put your dog in a comfy covered crate with bedding, toys, and water; take your dog to a doggy daycare; take a few days off to help your dog adjust…) 

    Finding pet friendly housing

    Conducting a Successful Housing Search 

    As a pet owner, you want to show a prospective landlord that you are a responsible tenant and a responsible pet owner. You want to convince the landlord that it would be a good thing to have you as a tenant! Here are a few things to consider when renting with pets: 

    • Give yourself enough time. No one likes moving, much less finding rental housing that accepts pets. If possible, start your search at least six weeks before you plan to move. 
    • Focus on places that allow most pets. You’re more likely to be successful if you focus on places that allow most pets, allow certain pets (for example, cats or dogs weighing less than 20 pounds), or that don’t say, “Sorry, no pets.” Individual home and condominium owners may be easiest to persuade. 
    • Be prepared with temporary housing plans. You might not be able to find pet-friendly housing right away so have a backup plan in place. Ask a good friend or a family member if they would be willing to care for your pet temporarily until you can find rental housing that allows pets. If you can’t bear the thought of being away from your pet, then stay at short-term pet-friendly accommodations like hotels or even a B&B or a cottage. 
    • Show an interest in cleanliness. Point out that your pet is housetrained or litter-box trained. Emphasize that you properly dispose of your pet’s waste. 
    • Promote yourself. Responsible pet owners make excellent residents. Because they must search harder for a place to live, pet caregivers are more likely to stay put. Lower vacancy rates mean lower costs and fewer headaches for landlords and real estate agents. 
    • Promote your pet. Offer to bring your pet to meet the owner or property manager, or invite the landlord to visit you and your pet in your current home. A freshly groomed, well-behaved pet will speak volumes. 
    • Be willing to pay a little extra. Tell your prospective landlord or resident manager that you are willing to pay an extra security deposit to cover any damages your pet might make to the property. 
    • Get it in writing. Once you have been given permission by a landlord, manager, or condominium committee to have a pet, be sure to get it in writing. Sign a pet addendum to your rental agreement. 
    • Get permission for all types of pets, not just dogs. Sometimes tenants assume that indoor cats or caged pets will automatically be okay because no one else ever sees them. Trouble (and heartache) arises when they’re found to have pets without permission. 
    • Be honest. Don’t try to sneak your pet in to any rental property. If you do so, you may be subject to possible eviction or other legal action. 


    Surrendering a Jindo

    Below Are A Few Tips To Help You Re-Home Your Jindo:

    1. Give yourself time to re-home your Jindo. It can often take weeks or even months to find a new home.
    2. Increase your Jindo’s adoptability. Make sure it’s spayed/neutered, groomed, and up-to-date on its vaccinations.
    3. Market your pet! Create an attention grabbing pet profile that you can copy/paste on multiple platforms.
    4. Tell your friends, family and co-workers. Ask them to spread the word! You never know who may be looking for a new companion.
    5. Promote your pet online. Post your pet profile on as many rehoming sites as possible. Here are just a few to get your started:
      Use caution when considering unknown individuals or families as your pet’s new owners. Hold the initial meeting in a public place and ask questions to screen potential adopters. Share your expectations for your pet’s new home and require an adoption fee to deter dishonest individuals. When you find a family that meets your and your pet’s needs, ask for identification and contact information to follow up on how your pet is doing in its new home.
    6. Check with local rescue groups. You can find most of these groups online through a web search or on Facebook.

    We’d love to welcome you to be part of our walking teams (either with or without your dogs), or you can simply support us by making a donation.

    We’ll be driving over from TDF Headquarters at The Farm in North-Eastern Nevada with at least 4 (maybe 5 this year?!) of our Jindos to take part in the Salt Lake City Event, and we’d be thrilled to see you!

    And as usual, there’ll be plenty of our volunteers at the Los Angeles and San Francisco Events who’d be delighted to welcome you to their team.

    Click the links above to join our teams or donate (“Two Dog Farms”):

    Strut your Mutt 2019 (Salt Lake City)

    (From our Directors, Rosalind and Philip):

    Each year, for the past several years, and again this year, Philip and I will be representing our Jindo Rescue (Two Dog Farms, Inc.) by taking part in the Salt Lake City “Strut your Mutt”, in October this year.

    We’ll be walking with a few of our own Jindos, all of whom are dogs that we have rescued from various situations.

    Why do we take part?

    Well, it’s to help raise much-needed funds for the rescue, so that we can continue to help as many US born and abandoned Jindos as we can.

    This year, we have already pulled nearly 3/4 our normal yearly average and still have half the year to go, so despite our hopes and efforts, you can see that the need to help Jindos in the US does not unfortunately diminish.
    And this year has seen a sharp rise in abandoned seniors too – we recently adopted a near 14 year old female, Bobby, but we ourselves can only take so many, and we rely heavily on our wonderful team of volunteers and foster families, who in turn lead us to a growing number of loving forever homes for these fabulous dogs.

    Our rescue began with the dog shown in the photo, Sammo, who we were drawn to help after seeing his information on Facebook from the Brooklyn ACC in New York. We had our own Jindos, and Asian mixes at the time, but knew we wanted to do more, and saw a ‘hole in the market’ – the breed was sadly lacking in representation in the rescue world, so we decided we’d try to fill that void, at least on the West Coast of the US.

    Please help us continue our work, and support Jindos in the USA.You can donate to our SLC Strut Team via the link below:
