My story

My story

2015/10/27 PACK rescue team found a litter of puppies more dead than alive trapped in a drain pipe. Hence Charm was brought to PACK with his brothers and sisters. Growing up in PACK, Charm has never lived in a family home. However he has always been enthusiastic around his caregivers and obedient as well. Thus we decided to give Charm a chance to enroll in PACK Academy. Now he has completed the first half of the Academy, and is ready to join a foster home! Would you wait for him to complete his journey in PACK Academy and make him a part of your family?

Charm

Personality

Charm is affectionate, and loves interacting with people. He is always energetic and lively, and always smiles at you! Once he gets familiar with you, you’ll find him following you everywhere. Even when he’s just lying next to you, the focus of his eyes will always stick to you. You simply mean the world to him! Being a timid and sensitive boy who is easy to get nervous and never exposed to a busy environment before, it takes longer for Charm to adapt to a new environment, so you might need to be a bit patient with him. In fact, it took him more than a week to gradually settle into his foster home. His foster mom said that it really gives her a sense of accomplishment when Charm finally started to wag his tail and smile at her!

My Behavior

My Behavior

The fact that Charm’s attention will always be focused on acquainted people makes him very easy to train, and because he’s highly concentrated, he also learns the commands real quick. But Charm is also easily frightened. When he starts to panic, he'll look for shelter, people he knows, or corners to hide right away, and he should not be encouraged at this moment. Instead, just let him adapt, get used to the new stimuli at his own pace, and let him know that there’s nothing to be afraid of.
