I’m an affectionate and active young dog around 3 years old and I’ve been lingering in SCAA foster care for a year now, watching many other foster pups and dogs come and go. Why? Well, no good reason actually – unless you count the fact that I don’t fit into a handbag or that I’m not a purebred! I’m well trained, happy, playful, and healthy. What more could you really ask for in a canine companion?
My rescuer found me wandering her apartment compound and was disappointed her attempts to reunite me with my family failed when my previous owner told her he didn’t want me back. I followed her around the house for days, worried this nice new person would abandon me too. I proved myself a great dog with my rescuer’s children, but alas the family cat was freaked out. So I moved into foster care where unfortunately the person who committed to helping me backed out. I’m a loyal dog that easily forgives people for not making me a priority, but I genuinely hope to find people who don’t need me to.
I’ve been on happy weekend furloughs in foster homes after boarding during the week at PAW since the foster parents who love to have me at their place work long hours during the week and have no help and the other foster parents who have help have an Ayi scared of dogs. I’m really looking forward to finding a forever family.
Ideal Home: I’m a great single dog (which is fine since you’re really allowed only one in Shanghai). I get along fine with small dogs but can be aggressive with big dogs – so should be walked on a leash around them. I enjoy an active lifestyle like any medium-sized dog – 3 good walks a day and once in a while a run next to you while you ride a bike or scooter slowly. When my energy is spent, I love to snuggle up on the sofa with you. I’m great with kids – gentle and curious and welcoming of attention in the form of head pats and scratches behind the ears.
Healthcare History: Treated for fleas (Revolution), worms (Drontal), vaccinated (DHPPI, Lepto, and Rabies) and neutered at SCAA’s vet partner, PAW. Foxy has been the picture of health his entire time in foster care.
