Nepal has found a new life living in a hair salon after being abandoned by his family, as countless other pets were, during the 2019 Goseong wildfires. Chained up in yards, these animals had no chance to escape the voracious fire.
When we found Nepal amidst the aftermath, he had a huge burn on his back and gave our rescue team a languid gaze. We took him to the hospital, but his family didn’t show up even by the time his treatment was complete.
Nepal was timid around people and other dogs, and was bullied for his timidness. Fortunately, one of his foster parents heard about this and, feeling sympathy for Nepal, decided to adopt him and give him a forever home.
Now, Nepal has gained confidence and walks around brazenly in crowded city parks without fear. Having a hair stylist as a parent, Nepal receives specialised grooming that protects his burn scars from exposure to sunlight.
Nepal’s life has turned a full 180 degrees from a dog chained up in a yard on fire to a doggy style icon, and enjoying weekends socialising in parks and dog cafes with his new loving family.
