Meet our girl Hedy! She traveled all the way from Taiwan to be adopted by you! It’s been a hectic couple of months for this sweet pup — culture shock perhaps? — but she’s settling in here at Rocket Dog and quickly becoming a volunteer favorite.
Hedy has a way of capturing your heart like only a rescue dog can. She’s pretty fearful of new things and new places. But once she knows you’re on her side, it’s an everlasting bond. All it takes is a soft voice and a few hotdogs 🙂 Winning the trust of a scared dog is one of the best feelings in the world, and Hedy will show her gratitude by showering you with so much love, playfulness, and affection.
Hedy is still a puppy at 6 months old (25 lbs) so she’ll need all of the things a puppy needs: training, socialization, and lots of patience! We think the ideal situation for Hedy would be humans that are experienced and know a bit about fearful dogs. We are also asking that her new home has another confident dog who can show her the ropes (and play with her!). It is also recommended that her new family not have children or a lot of different people coming and going. Formosan Mountain Dogs are known for being wonderful protectors of the home, but that might not be ideal for all adopters.
This sweet dog is ready to start meeting her suitors! Apply today and a volunteer will contact you (RDS).
