Ruby does not play with other dogs and may be afraid of big quick movements from strangers.  As a puppy, Ruby was rescued with her litter to an over-crowded shelter.  She's highly treats and food motivated and will take offerings from new people even in an unfamiliar environment.  Once Ruby bonds with her humans she would ask for pets and waits quietly by one’s side to go out for walks.  She’s looking for a experienced and patient family who can provide a moderate amount of exercise and further socialization with people.

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.
