South Korea Faces Rescue Search Dog Shortage

I have no idea if South Korea actually has a rescue search dog shortage, but that is the conclusion I draw from this this article on The Korea Times titled "Why did Korea send only 2 rescue dogs to Japan?"  The article states they only sent two dogs to help with the coordinated search and rescue operation because they only had two trained dogs in the whole country... right, let's hope there is never an emergency (like a shelling?) or national disaster in this country.

I'm not too terribly surprised, but I had a hard time biting my tongue when one of my co-teachers was trying to tell me (slightly smugly) that she was surprised by the devestation in Japan, since they were supposedly the most prepared country in the face of an emergency. I desperately wanted to bring up what might have happened if Korea found itself in the same unfortunate circumstances but decided to merely assert that given that this was one of the worst eathrquakes in recent history, Japan was actually quite prepared, and that the damage could have been much worse.
