She’s super loving and not skittish towards people. She would come in with a headbutt to say hi, and is quiet and potty trained. She is very people friendly and is good with calmer children. Perhaps it is due to her previous injuries in her hips, she dislikes prolonged petting/stroking on her back end. For this reason, it is best that she lives with children who are mature enough to understand this – if she must live with some children. She’s very independent but likes cuddling. Juicy is a little bit like a cat in this regard – she doesn’t like it when a large arm swing across her to hug her in bed. Juicy is mostly dog friendly and loves running and playing in an offleash park. On leash, she may get defensive with some larger dogs. This will need to be worked on. She has improved tremendously since, so we expect that she will eventually be calm when passing large dogs on leash. The future adopter will need to be consistent and patient to train her. She does love all the trail fun, but beware, she has an innate passion for squirrels! Juicy is a sweet girl who has a bit of quirks, but with the right family, she can be a fun addition to the family!
Her hind legs were injured; one of them went through surgery and the other leg healed on its own. Neither injuries have affected how she walks or runs, and no special attention is needed. Keeping her weight down is strongly recommended.
Juicy was abandoned in a park in Southern Taiwan. When she was found, she was sitting alone at the corner of the park, her head and ears down, seemingly waiting for that person who once loved her to come and take her back home. The rescuer found the previous owner through the microchip registration, and only to confirm the fact that Juicy is now homeless.
Juicy is very loving and affectionate. She loves going for walks at the park, and loves playing with other dogs. Being fostered at a hair salon, she greets all the customers and is very well socialized.
