Although he adopted them with a specific purpose in mind, it’s obvious that Shindong loves his dogs a lot — and doesn’t even mind that they poop. A lot.

They say having a pet, particularly a dog or cat is good for your mental health — and this has been proven in scientific studies. We’re glad to hear Shindong has been doing better thanks to his dogs and we hope they have many, many happy years together.
