Audi was rescued together with his sister Milva by a senior. But the senior did not have the experience or skills to rehabilitate the skittish pair, so our rescuers were called in and helped looking for fosters and preparing them for adoption.
Audi was shyer than Milva and took much longer than Milva did to become ready for a home. He is extremely cuddly, gentle, and very loving. He walks well on leash, although still slightly on the skittish side, he will improve over time.
Currently living with 6 other dogs in his Vancouver foster, Audi misses his foster family in Taiwan tremendously, and sometimes cries during the night. He has slowly come out of his shell just the second day in Vancouver! We are sure he will get better and better everyday!
In a new environment, Audi will want to hide instinctually. It is important to let him have a moment to calm himself, but it is also important to not let him hide all the time. Some skills and patience will be needed!
