Bu Bu takes a few days to bond with humans in a new environment.  As a puppy, Bu Bu was rescued from the killing pound to treat a bite wound from a large dog.  He would therefore bark at intact male adult dogs who get too close to him without warning.  Although unsure outside, he just avoids confrontations and stays close to his humans.  He’s calm and easy-going at home but would need a small secured fenced yard for best transition.  He’s looking for experienced shy dog owners with a moderately active lifestyle and 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.
