Xiao Ba happily greets his humans with a wagging tail and enjoys being petted after given time to warm up with strangers.  He was rescued off the streets to a crowded shelter where he stayed for four years.  Being infected with scabies and unable to receive proper care he was transferred to a foster home.  He then had aural hematoma and was taken to the vet for surgical drainage.  His hearing is back to normal but one of his ear is now floppy.  His eyes are slightly opaque with the specialist’s finding that atheroma doesn’t affect his vision.  Recently he was bullied and attacked by a new foster dog with injuries only to be discovered after blood trickled down his legs and thick fur shaved off, fortunately Xiao Ba remains gentle and submissive.  He hopes to become a furry member to a loving and moderately active family.

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.
