This is my sweet girl Dia, I’ve had her in my life for nearly four years now. She was born a stray on the streets of Taiwan where she lived with her mother and two siblings until they were trapped and taken in by a local rescue group there called ARTT.
Dia was flown over to Seattle, WA after receiving medical aid in Taiwan. She was barely 7 months old when she arrived and just skin and bones still even after getting treatments. Her fear of people was to the point of extreme flight and shut down responses. Just being near a person was enough to cause her to curl into a ball and shake never-ending in fear. I originally allowed her into my house with the idea that she would be a foster dog, but after a few days I knew there was no way she would be able to join a normal family. Her fear was too extreme and well she completely fell in love with my other dog who is also a Taiwan rescue. So I foster failed and she joined my life. She’s still scared of strangers and very skittish around even those she’s gotten to know, but with me she’s a little diva dog demanding that I worship her at every opportunity. LOL
