Additional Info/situation: Alternate airports possible: Teterboro, NJ 07608 - Homer, a Jindo who broke his leg climbing the fence in his backyard. The owners did not want to pay for surgery and they were tired of the neighbors complaining about him barking, so they planned to take him to the shelter; with the broken leg! Thankfully, the veterinarian stepped in to temporarily keep him until rescue could be found. The break was worse than expected; Homer needed an orthopedic surgeon and a place to recover. Treasured k9s specializes in rescuing Jindos but we are based in the NYC area. We found an adopter for him in Southern NJ and he needs to get into his home as soon as possible. His foster home in AL is only temporary. Jindos are a rare breed from Korea and Treasured k9s is the only rescue specializing in the breed East of Nevada.
