The rescuers went to the coal power plant to trap and neuter dogs and William was one of the dogs they trapped. He was easy and so friendly that the rescuers could just walk over to him, pick him up, put him in the car and drive off. After the rescuers got to know him, they decided to find William a home he deserves. The rescuers heard from the staff at the power plant that William came from the Fujian province in Mainland China via a boat. No one claimed him back when the boat returned to Fujian. Because the workers at the power plant are mostly men, so William is very used to male strangers and are not afraid of them. When he goes to a new environment, he might hold his pee and poop for 3-4 days until he settles. Overall he is calm, obedient.
