SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea’s presidential office has found a home for two of the nine dogs former President Park Geun-hye left behind when she was forced out of office over a corruption scandal.
Park’s decision to leave the dogs upset the country’s dog lovers, who flooded the internet with angry comments.
A spokesman from the presidential Blue House said Friday that the puppies were given to an organization that raises Jindo dogs, a valued native breed. The official says five other puppies will be soon sent to two other organizations.
Park’s neighbors gave her a pair of Jindo dogs when she moved into the Blue House in 2013. The dogs recently gave birth to seven puppies.
Prosecutors plan to question Park over the corruption allegations next week.
