My story

My story

PACK Academy works with Sanzhi Animal Shelter to help stray dogs find their home efficiently. Our team assess and select dogs from the shelter, and bring them back to PACK to conduct a further training.Tan Tan is one of the cases. Tan Tan was a baby, under one-year-old, when she came to the shelter,it’s been six years, and she finally joined PACK!  With a spirit of resilience, Tan Tan is passionate, energetic, and people-friendly. After completing a series of training and observation for more than a month, We are excited to announce that Tan Tan is now interning at a halfway house! She’s ready for her permanent family.

TanTan

Personality

Well, Tan Tan is into “hot dogs”, she becomes proactive towards cute or handsome dogs... :D  Tan Tan has her own thoughts, for example, she loves to stay at where she’s familier with, she  insists on walking her own way. Just because Tan Tan is very determined doesn’t mean that she’s a  tough case. As long as giving her clear, patient guidance, Tan Tan gets the order and will be happy to  follow. In general, Tan Tan is just sooo adorable!

My Behavior

My Behavior

Tan Tan is friendly to people, she’s all you can pet. When she was at PACK, she tended to stay in her comfort zone and went back to her room to wait for treats. Tan Tan gets a bit nervous but not dramatic when she’s in a new environment.  

My Behavior

Tolerance Levels

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.

Strangers

Tan Tan approaches strangers, friendly.
