A senior man who lives in Korea can’t say no to dogs that need his help. He started by adopting two dogs he found in the streets. And eventually, that number grew to 13.
Some of the dogs simply followed him home, while the others he took with him. One of his pups was supposed to be put to sleep. One day before he was euthanized, he came in and took him home. Another one was already pregnant when he adopted her, and she gave birth while under his care.
Moved from the city
As the number of his adopted dogs started growing, the 70-year-old man couldn’t keep his pets in the city anymore. He purchased land in a rural area nearby and built a house there. It has a fenced-in yard where the dogs could play and ample space for crates at the back.
He loved the dogs so much that he moved to his rural house to take care of them. His wife stayed in the city and would often visit him or vice versa. Sometimes, their grandchildren would come to visit as well.
The man’s typical day would start by calling out the names of all the dogs. He even has a speaker system so that he wouldn’t have to shout his dog’s names. When the dogs hear their names being called, they come out from their crates to have breakfast.
He tries to play with them and give them exercise. When his grandkids are there, they also take them out for walks.
Living with the kind senior man is his mom. Amazingly, the mom decided to live there even when she didn’t really like dogs. Well, except for one. She is very close to a Maltese named Mimi.
Mimi is the only one that is allowed inside the house. Grandma dotes on her and frequently looks for her. She feeds the pup herself and even dries her up after taking a bath. The two often snuggle and sleep on the same bed.
As for now, the man said that he is stopping with 13 dogs. But with his kind heart, there is no doubt that he may just add some more.
