As a little puppy, Chi Du was stuck in the middle of a busy street, terrified as he dodged oncoming traffic and the little rocks that flew at him whenever a car went by. Luckily, he found a sewer where he could hide for a while and nurse the wound he had on his leg. Not long after, Chi Du's nose picked up the smell of delicious food in the air. He saw some people wearing orange shirts approach him, offering him the food. They picked him up in a blanket, put him in a safe container. These people were PACK Taiwan staff responding to a request to rescue a puppy. Chi Du has lived happily at PACK HQ since then but is now looking for a home.
Chi Du is a very relaxed, low-energy dog who will spend most of his time resting and napping at home. He's so relaxed that we call him "Slo-Mo." He likes going out for walks but he's usually very cautious of new environments. He's a happy boy who loves attention and being pet.
Chi Du is happy to nap all day. He does get a little excited when going out for a walk but he doesn't ever get hyper.
Chi Du is a shy guy who prefers hanging out with people he's familiar with.
Chi Du has a follower's mentality but needs someone who he feels comfortable and secure with.
It takes Chi Du some time to get used to new environments. He's usually able to relax a bit more after a week in a new place.
Chi Du is not motivated by food (especially dry kibble), which makes him somewhat challenging to train. Needs to be enticed by high-value food, such as sausages or cooked chicken to be motivated. That said, Chi Du is such a well-behaved dog that he doesn't need much training. He's suitable more for a family that wants a dog to just keep them company at home. Not the right dog for a super active/sporty family.
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.
Chi Du has no health issues that we are aware of.
At PACK Academy, we socialize our dogs by exposing them to different stimuli and recording their tolerance levels for each one. These observations help us understand the dogs better, which then helps us find suitable homes for them.
