My story

My story

Jerry has been at PACK HQ since the very beginning. She was on the streets for many years and was happy to come to PACK Taiwan. She is a quiet and cautious girl because of her past experiences. She likes to bundle up in her personal space but loves to be around her humans.

Jerry

Personality

Jerry is a quiet and introverted dog. She is more of a follower and will take a back seat when there is a strong leader present. Sometimes she will come off as aloof and disengaged but she is actually observing your every move. Jerry is slow to warm up, but once you win her over she is loyal like no other dog.

Medical History

My health has been checked:

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Microchipped
  • Vaccinated
  • Regular Worming Treatment

Jerry has no health issues that we are aware of. However, because of her advanced age, she is starting to show some signs of physical weakness, particularly in her hind legs.
My Behavior

My Behavior

Jerry is super friendly but is timid and nervous around people with a stronger presence (oftentimes males). She can get along well with other dogs but if a new dog gets too closer to her she might bare her teeth (just a warning, she won't attack). She is sometimes cat-like, preferring her own space but also enjoying occasional time with her human. She waits for you patiently at home but don't leave anything in the trash... she'll get to it!

My Behavior

Tolerance Levels

At PACK Academy, we socialize our dogs by exposing them to different stimuli and recording their tolerance levels for each one. These oservations help us understand the dogs better, which then helps us find suitable homes for them.

Strangers

Jerry needs time to get used to strangers.
