Breed(s): Formosan Mountain Dog Mixed

Weight: 29.8lbs / 13.5kg (Full Grown Estimate 45lbs / 20.4kg)


Personality: Timid with strangers, loyal towards his human, gets along with dogs, and afraid of cats


Balloon is attached to his human and distant with new people.  Although afraid, he is able to takes treats from strangers’ hand.  He would try to get away and hide if someone approaches him with direct eye contacts and attempts to pet him.  He is improving with further socialization and would benefit from having an outgoing and well-balanced doggy companion in the home to show him the way.  As a puppy, chew toys and exercises are a must for proper energy outlets.  While driving our rescuer spotted, Balloon, squirming and crying alone on a rural non-residential road late at night.  He is looking for a shy dog experienced and patient family to help him gain confidence through continuous socialization using positive reinforcement.  He enjoys playing with balls and water, great activities for bonding with his humans.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters must fill out an application form. If the application is approved, a home check is performed. An assessment of whether or not the dog is a good fit for the family is also performed. If the adoption is approved, an adoption contract is signed and adoption fees are paid (typically between $350-500). The dog is then flown over from Taiwan, or if the dog is fostered locally, the family can take the dog home immediately.
