Two years have passed…

Hello all,
It’s Clover here.
I came to ARK all the way from Fukushima in Dec. 2011.


I panicked when the ground shook back in March 2011. I had another shock when I arrived at ARK. There are many dogs here…. And I hate them!

Back in Fukushima I lived in a house with a big yard. It was big enough for me to run around, so I never had to go out for walks on the street. Due to that, I never met other dogs. I was happy just living with my human Grandpa. He used to throw the ball for me in the yard. I loved that game so much.


After I arrived at ARK I had to learn to wear a harness and how to go on walks. I spent most of my time barking at other dogs and pulling on the leash. It took time for me to learn not to pull.
I look young, but I am 9 years old. People say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Not true! The staff members praise me for my leash walking now. I have improved a lot.


I really love to play with my toy along with the volunteers and staff members. I really hate to give it up when it is time for the game to end. But, if you really want it, I will let you have it. I don’t get mad.

I might feel a bit sad though…

I have mastered all the basic commands of sit, wait and down. When I do “down” I tend to cross my legs which everyone loves. I do it every time just to entertain everyone!


It’s been two years since that ground shook and a lot of things changed in my life. How is my Grandpa doing? I’ve heard he wants me to find a new family. I have learned a lot here at ARK and maybe now is the time for me to move on and even try life in the city? I think I am ready!

I will definitely let my Grandpa know when I find my new family! Please consider giving me a loving home.

Looking forward to seeing you☆

Please check my buddies who also came to ARK due to the earthquake.
