My story

My story

Summertime in 2017, Wazi got rescued along with her mother and the rest 5 siblings into PACK. By the time, she was still a super fluffy and cute little puppy, born within just one month. Afterwards, under the love and care given by all shelter staffs, and with other dog friends, she grew up to be a healthy and stable dog. Now, Wazi is 5 year-old mature and strong Taiwan dog beauty.

Wazi

Personality

Wazi is more of an introvert, shy and timid. Even though she’s a bit sensitive, shy with stranger at first, need a safe place to hide when she gets nervous. But once she gets familiar with you, you would see the affectionate, cuddly side of her that would make you melt right away. Just give Wazi a bit time and she'll warm up to you. No doubt she’d make a wonderful companion!

Temperament

Wazi gets a bit insecure in new places, that she would lean down an back, want to hide away. But if with other dogs around, she feels safer and more at ease. After getting familiar, she would even initiate to approach and ask for patting to show her trust and loving to you.

Adaptability

Wazi is sensitive to surroundings, a bit afraid but also full of curiosity. It takes time for her to adapt. When encountering things that scare her, she tend to lie down, refuse to walk or just hide away. At this time, just a little more time and patience, azi can follow the owner's instructions.

My Behavior

Wazi gets along with dog very much. She enjoys being around with other dogs. Even though she need a bit more time to adapt to new surroundings, but with some more time and patience invested, it’s no problem winning her heart.Wazi is suitable for owners who understand shy dogs, can distinguish the body language of dogs, or family that already has dogs at home for Wazi to join!
