Girl • 10 years old • Aries • Golden Yellow • 15kg • Mixed Breed
Kay was brought to PACK Taiwan when she was around 3 years old because she was wounded by some very bad people. Someone had used a machete to slice her shoulder and the gash that resulted required intensive medical care. We were able to nurse her back to health but we think the experience made her untrusting of humans. She has been at PACK HQ for around 5 years but has shown great potential to be a companion for the right family.
Kay is a shy dog who prefers to relax at home instead of going to brunch with your friends. Once she trusts you her sweetness will melt your heart. While she's more of a follower, she is extremely smart and can survive on her own if she needs to.
Kay loves to go on relaxing walks and is also perfectly happy chilling at home with you. Generally a low-energy dog.
The consistent feedback we receive on Kay is that she is super shy!
Kay does not have a strong personality at all. She may show some stubbornness but is otherwise happy to follow you.
Other than humans, it seems like nothing really bothers Kay. She does well in any environment as long as she feels protected.
My health has been checked:

Kay has no health issues that we are aware of. The tip of her left ear is clipped but has already healed.
At PACK Academy, we socialize our dogs by exposing them to different stimuli and recording their tolerance levels for each one. These oservations help us understand the dogs better, which then helps us find suitable homes for them.

Obedience training is critical for nurturing healthy dog-human relationships and having a well-behaving dog. Our dogs receive basic training at PACK Academy, which provides a foundation for communication between dog and human.
