This is Jindol. He’s a happy fella despite a very sad start in life.
Jindol’s a rescue from South Korea. He was found abandoned on the streets in a terrible condition. He was starving and his two back paws had been cut off.
Some kind hooman found him and took Jindol to a rescue centre in Seoul where they nursed him back to health.
They didn’t have much hope for Jindol. They thought his disability was too much for anyone to take on.
But Rafi in the UK read Jindol’s story on the shelter’s website and this hooman instantly fell in love with him.
She couldn’t bear the thought of him living out his life in pain, in a shelter and never having a home. She asked to adopt him.
Finally after the seven long months that took Rafi to complete the adoption and quarantine process, Jindol now lives in London.
It’s been more than. year since he came to live in London. He has blossomed into an adorable, affectionate dog …
With an incredible zest for life.
But his two missing paws are a constant reminder of his past.
Today he gets about with his two paws bandaged and he wears little boots.
Because they easily get infected, Rafi has to change his badges every day and puts on new “feet”
He patiently waits to have them bandaged.
And even though he gets around a lot easier, his back is taking the strain.
Obviously not good for playing in water. LOL!
He has come a long way and today he is also now an epilepsy support animal because Rani suffers from Epilepsy and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and struggles with the ups and downs of life with seizures and chronic pain. Jindol’s courage and companionship is a daily comfort and inspiration to Rafi as he never lets his pain get him down!
Jindol lives every day with courage in spite of his sad past and never lets his painful disability stop him standing up and walking tall!
Rafi is fundraising to get Jindol back up on all four paws with a new pair of prosthetic legs and some incredible veterinary expertise. They’ve got a big target to hit but after such a sad start in life he deserves a chance to live a better pain-free life.

This way he never have to worry about which pair of shoes he’ll have to wear.
