Breed(s): Formosan Mountain Dog Mixed

Colour(s): Black with white patches

Weight: 54lbs / 24.6kg


Personality: Shy with new people, affectionate and loyal towards his humans, good with dogs and cats


Yo loves to go out for walks and car rides.  Once he has bonded with his humans he has a strong recall.  He’s submissive towards other dogs but not particularly playful with new dogs.  Yo, a starving puppy on the streets, was kept by a pet shop owner tied in the back alley of the store but when the shop relocated the dog was left behind.  Yo’s rescuer provided him a shelter but he was crated majority of time due to overflow of stray dogs.  He would growl when new people approach his crate but as soon as he’s let out or if the person opening the crate has a leash on hand he would be fine.  Yo is looking for a moderately active family who can provide further socialization with people and dogs.

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.
