Akita mix | neutered male | 5 years old | 58 lbs
Dudu lived for over 4 years tied up on a chain in a lumber factory in Taiwan along with seven other dogs. They were kept as guard dogs but never had freedom off their chain.
One day, the lumber factory was closing down and they planned on getting rid of all their dogs. Our volunteer knew about this situation and could not bare these the thought of the dogs being abandoned, as they would not be able to survive on their own in the wild since they have always lived tied up. The volunteer took in two of the friendliest of the seven dogs to be fostered and trained for living in a household.
