Imsil-gun County in Jeollabuk-do Province decided to benchmark Birmingham's business model. Imsil is where the folktale "The Dog of Osu" originated. It's a story about a four-legged friend who rescued its owner from a raging fire. The local government plans to invite a large number of prominent dogs that participated in international shows, and expand infrastructure for pets. A playground and campsite for pets have already been built in the area. The construction of a funeral facility for animals is to begin soon.
