About Pachi:
Pachi is sweet and loving; he adores being petted. Pachi had a tough start in life. He used to be very skittish and reserved when we first met him. It took us a while to gradually bond with him, and then guided him to interact with humans, other dogs and even cats. Now he might shy away from strangers and children but still being friendly with them.
Pachi enjoys being around people and adapts to new environments quickly. He walks in busy streets with confidence; he no longer has problem interacting with strangers, only a little shy though. He is watchful, will give short barks when strangers visiting our house, but will calm down when instructed to. He enjoys the companion of dogs in his foster home a lot. His favorite pastime is hanging out with dog pals in the park and his daily walks. He’s good with his foster family’s cats too.

About Pachi’s rescue:
A rescuer bailed Pachi out of animal shelter back in 2015. He was temporarily placed with a privately run no-kill shelter. Two years passed, Pachi did not get the chance to be adopted for being too skittish. The rescuer did not have the heart to let this sweet mellow young pup spent the rest of his life in the cage, so she placed Pachi with a foster home where he gets to be socialized more.
Pachi’s foster family patiently waited three days for the poor scared pup to walk out of his crate. Soon Pachi opened his heart completely under loving care; he showed sweetness and total trust toward the foster family. Finally, he came out of his shell thru the lead of leash and a sweet dog that befriended him. Pachi quickly learned to appreciate the good feelings of cuddling and showing affection with foster family.
