A number of dogs, some of them puppies, were living under a bridge in Guri in Gyeonggi Province in South Korea. An old blanket and empty bowls were scattered here and there. Some were tied up, and some were roaming free.
There were more than 20 dogs there, and the weather had turned excruciatingly cold. A neighbor felt so sorry for the dogs shivering in the cold and reported the situation to us.
The owner of these dogs was an elderly lady who lived in a tiny rented room. She looked after homeless dogs that she found on the streets, but since the number of the dogs had started to increase, she could no longer take care of them. When we met her, she was in tears and asked us if we could at least provide kennels for them.
Just before we started the rescue, Brenda was hit by a vehicle as she tried to cross the road and her hind leg was broken. After 2 operations, her leg was secured by a metal plate. After recuperation, Brenda’s leg has recovered well and she only needs to have her leg examined regularly.
Brenda appears not to need much attention, but she really loves going up on the roof with the CARE staff. Even when Woong-jin playfully approached her, she wouldn’t react and just enjoyed a peaceful stroll on the roof enjoying the scenery.
Brenda would initially stay away from staff when they approached, but if you persisted, she would gladly accept your friendship. When she was staying at the head office, if someone looked at her while she was eating a snack, she would pretend to be not eating and hide the snack in her cushion.
Brenda will need a family prepared to take it slow and build up the strength in her hind leg again. After that, we think she’ll love taking peaceful walks with you.
Depending on the breed, the size, and its environment the lifespan of a dog may vary from 12 to 16 years. Please consider this if you are thinking of adopting Brenda.
