Lucky was rescued in Central Taiwan from an owner who neglects her and lets her roam outdoors. When the rescuer drove by her home in May 2021, she almost hit Lucky because the was running towards the meridian in a panic. The rescuer parked her car and got Lucky; she was not only emaciated, but had extreme matted hair everywhere. She also had some fleas on her. The owner claimed that they groomed Lucky weekly and feeds her well. Looking towards where the owner called Lucky’s home, it was a molded cardboard box with no coverage. Her food bowl was dirty and she had no access to water. The owners decided to surrender Lucky to avoid an animal cruelty investigation.
In the rescuer’s home where Lucky stayed with the 26 other dogs and 3 cats, Lucky was shy but very cuddly. She is not walked regularly in the foster’s home in Taiwan and was accustomed to using pee pads.
After arriving in Vancouver, she is walked regularly and encouraged to potty outdoors. She tends to potty indoors or hold her poop in the first week until she relaxes. Currently, she needs to know there is someone present at the moment as she settles in but very calm easy demeanour. Lucky will be best fit in a home where she can enjoy attention from her family all the time and can have the patience to get through her decompression period. Please submit an adoption application to meet Lucky!
