Background

Abu came to PACK Taiwan because his previous owner didn't have enough time to take care of her. We tried to convince the owner to keep trying but she insisted. The owner was considering other shelters where the environment was more harsh, so we ultimately agreed to take her in.

Personality

Abu has the personality of a cheerleader because she's so happy and upbeat despite what she's gone through. You can often find a big smile on her face when she's playing with people or her friends. She's a high energy dog who is smart and loyal.
