My story

My story

In June 2022, PACK Acaemy cooperated with New Taipei City Animal Shelter and went to places to evaluate either they were suitable enviorments for dogs or not. We rescuded seven dogs from this mission and Orange is one of them. Since Orange was growing up in a not ideally envirment and he became very senstive and shy. He doesn’t know how to be around with people and also with other dogs. Despite of how ptience the caretakers and volunteers trying to teach him how to socialize with the others. Orange still avoids to have contact with strangers. After evaluation by PACK Academy, we decided to send him to a foster home. That way Orange would be able to learn how to get comfortable around people and not to be sensitive to his surroundings. Hope Orange will get used to living with a family soon enough.
