Meet Cristina! Cristina has definitely had a tough time of it, but boy has her luck changed!!  This 77lb lab/hound mix girl is now one of 200 dogs recently rescued from the South Korean Dog Meat Market. Cristina has just arrived in the DC area and is now settling into her foster home. Her foster Mom says  that Cristina asks to go outside and still hasn't had any accidents in the house. Cristina is still unsure of the leash, but loves running in the backyard. She is super curious and it's awesome seeing her come out of her shell. Cristina's foster also reports that she was pleasantly surprised by how much Cristina likes people. Her first night all Cristina wanted was to be by her foster parents and have them pet her. Cristina even let her foster mom give her a bath and surprisingly enough she really enjoyed it. She is still nervous about her surroundings and gets a little scared whens she hears something new, but this morning she decided she wanted to explore the basement by herself and even walked up two steps. We believe with a patient owner she will turn out to be an amazing pet.

Cristina may need a family with another dog to help show her the ropes of family life (she LOVES all other dogs)! She will also need someone willing to give hwe some time and training so she can learn how to become all that she was meant to be.  

FOSTER UPDATE: Check out this amazing video of Cristina learning to conquer the stairs:

This large lady is filled with love and she is obviously looking for someone to share it with. If you have another dog and think your home would be complete with this little lady added to it, please contact the Adoption Coordinator listed below (Emily) with your completed questionnaire. Because Cristina will soon be ready and happy to finally come home, for forever.

Like most shelter dogs, Cristina may need a refresher on housetraining and crate training.

The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please FIRST download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Emily Jagdmann at!
