Background

Cassy was found roaming the mountains of Taiwan while pregnant. She was rescued by a few kind-hearted people who would not let a mother and her helpless puppies face the wilderness on their own. “Mama Cass” soon gave birth to 8 beautiful puppies (almost all adopted) and is now looking for a forever home for herself because her foster is leaving Taiwan to go back to her home in Columbia. 

Personality

Cassy is a very sweet dog with people she knows and trust, but can be timid and reserved with strangers. She loves cuddling and laying by your side… or in your lap! She is playful with other dogs and also likes to fetch. Cassy is a quick and enthusiastic learner.

Adaptability

Low

High

Very quick learner, only took her 3 months to go from being a stray dog to being comfortable around most humans.

Behavioral Observations

Cassy is a quick learner and can be trained easily since she is food motivated. As with many stray dogs, she can distrust humans but there is great potential for her to improve because of the rapid progress she has shown in the last 4 months. She would benefit from a human who will lead her with calmness and sensitivity, understanding that she needs time to become a more social dog. Mama Cass is great with dogs and cats but needs more observation with children (especially if they are rowdy).

Medical History

All of PACK's dogs are vaccinated annually, dewormed monthly and receive flea and tick medication quarterly. Every dog is spayed/neutered upon arrival at PACK HQ.
