found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Renee was one among a litter of 5 found roaming the streets. She is estimated to be around 4 months old and currently weighs 10 lbs. It is difficult to predict how big she will get but most likely not beyond a smaller medium size, probably under 40 lbs. Her exact breed is unknown--your guess is as good as ours.
Renee is an easy-going, happy-go-lucky, fun-loving puppy. She is not off-the-wall hyper but does love to play. Renee is a smart girl and learns quickly. She is very affectionate once she has a chance to adjust to her new environment, and happy to follow you around everywhere. Renee is a submissive girl and would do very well with another dog in the household to take her cues from.
As adorable as she is right now, please be prepared to take on the responsibility of training and disciplining Renee for the next 10-15 years. Socialization will be extremely important, and obedience classes will be mandatory. Each dog will require a great deal of time and dedication to help them become the best dogs possible.
If you are interested in adopting Renee, please email your completed Adoption Application. They We do request a $250 tax-deductible donation to help cover a portion of each dog's medical and transport expenses. A homecheck will also be required because we do want to be sure that each dog goes to an environment suited to them.
For an additional $50 tax-deductible donation, you will receive as a thank-you gift a doggie starter package. This includes a dog bed, a 5-lb bag of Canidae kibble, 2 ceramic bowls, leash, collar, toothbrush, toothpaste, kong, hypoallergenic shampoo, rope toy, stuffed animal, and bully stick treats--almost everything you need to get off on the right start, at a fraction of the price you would pay at a pet store, and the proceeds benefit our rescued dogs.
According to the World Society for the Protection of Animals, Taiwan is among the worst places in
the world for animals. There are at least 2 million stray dogs in Taiwan,
many of them 2nd or 3rd generation strays. There are virtually no humane
societies, shelters, or even laws prohibiting cruelty towards animals.
Government-run dog pounds don't offer humane euthanization--instead, dogs
are electrocuted, drowned, burned, or left to starve to death. Certainly
very little if anything is done to curb the reproduction cycle. Strays and
cruelty towards dogs are such a fact of life there that most people turn a
blind eye. Horrible abuse cases such as that involving (WARNING -Graphic: )
often than we like to think and right in the public eye.
Needless to say, the chances of survival let alone a life of happiness for a
homeless dog in Taiwan is almost nil. Generally, dogs are not valued as companions and family members there as they are here. Small grassroots rescue teams in
Taiwan like The Animal Rescue Team, Animals Taiwan,
and Taipei Abandoned Animal
Rescue Foundation work tirelessly to do
what they can to give at least a small percentage of the millions of stray
dogs a chance at a better life. And in the majority of cases, the only
chance lies outside of Taiwan.
