It doesn’t seem like there’s a "ruff" relationship between the two Koreas at the moment.

South Korean president Moon Jae-in unveiled puppies that were born from one of the dogs given to the South by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as “peace gifts” in September. The Pungsan dog, Gomi, gave birth to six puppies — three females and three males — earlier this month.

The official Twitter account for South Korea's presidential Blue House tweeted on Sunday photos of Moon and his wife Kim Jong-sook playing with the furry pups at their home’s courtyard. The office added the puppies are “all very healthy.”

Pungsan Dogs tend to be the dominant type, trying to get things their own way, and can be very protective of their loved ones and territory. Because of these traits, Pungsans are not recommended for inexperienced owners. Like most independent breeds, they need (and thrive under) firm but loving handling and consistency. Owners need to set the rules and stick with them. An owner who has earned the respect of his/her Pungsan will be rewarded with unsurpassed loyalty and obedience. As with all breeds, the Pungsan temperament varies with the quality of breeding and environment. This breed has a high prey drive.

The Pungsan should be allowed to live indoors with the family as opposed to being relegated to the yard where he might get into mischief out of boredom or loneliness. They have been known to be escape artists. As independent as the Pungsan is, his first desire is to be with his owner. As long as they are sufficiently walked, the Pungsan can be a pleasant apartment dweller due to its natural fastidiousness.

The Pungsan needs room to move. They need long daily walks, jogs or runs beside you on a bike in order to satisfy their exercise needs. Without this type of exercise they will become destructive and hard to handle. While on the walk be sure to not allow the dog to walk or jog in front of the human, as it is a canine instinct for the leader to go first. If you allow this dog to take over, you will have big problems on your hands.

The Pungsan has a double coat that sheds heavily twice a year. During the shedding season, extra care must be given to the coat. They should be brushed daily to remove the undercoat. Warm baths can help the process along. Otherwise, be prepared for rolling tumbleweeds of undercoat all over your house.

The Pungsan Dog, also commonly called the Korean Poongsan or Korean Phungsan, originates from North Korea and has wolf in its lines. This hunting dog was said to hunt panther. They were used for military purposes.

Would that include eating the uncle of Kim Jong Ill?
