There are hundreds of animals hoping to find loving homes in Beijing. If you are considering adopting a pet, Doggy/Moggy of the Week will feature animals from volunteer shelters, animal rescue groups, foster care providers, and pet owners needing to rehome animals. This week’s doggy, Xiao Huang, is from ICVS’ Adoptable Pets.
Name: Good morning Beijing! I am Xiao Huang!
Background: I was a stray dog living in the 798 Art Compound. I befriended a group of kind dog lovers that fed me and treated me well. When I trusted them enough, I brought them back to my safe haven and showed them the 5 pups I had been nursing since I gave birth a couple of months ago.
My kind human friends brought me and my pups to ICVS where we have been examined by our vets and treated, vaccinated and cared for this winter. My puppies and I are so grateful to our rescuers and our doctors.
My pups are still looking for homes and you can see their story here.
I am also available for adoption and am hoping to find a loving forever home in Beijing for the new year!
Personality: I am very gentle, relaxed, trusting and sweet. I am not at all nervous and have a great temperament. I am very well socialized and would make a great companion for anyone.
Ideal home: I am fine with an individual owner or with a family with children (e.g., six-years and older). I love people and enjoy playing, going out for walks and snuggling with my human companions.
Breed: Small mixed breed dog
Dog registration and Licensing: I under 35 cms from the ground to the shoulder and may be legally registered within any district in Beijing.
Sex & Age: I am a young female about 1.5-2 years old. I have been dewormed, fully vaccinated and spayed by my doctors at ICVS!
Medical notes: I am a young and healthy dog. I have been treated for worms, fleas and ticks and am up to date on my vaccinations. I have been spayed so you don’t have to worry about my having puppies again or attracting male dogs!
Post-adoption care: The International Center for Veterinary Services (ICVS) has covered the costs for all of my vaccinations, deworming and spay as part of their Non-Profit Humane Animal Welfare Programs for the community. ICVS will also provide my new family with significant discounts (up to 50%) on my follow-up examinations, vaccinations and a dental cleaning in 2014!
Official Vaccination Certificate:
I am already rabies vaccinated so ICVS will issue my new family an official Beijing Animal Health and Immunity Certificate (e.g., vaccination red book) at no charge! I need this official vaccination red book to prove I have been legally and properly rabies vaccinated and to register for my dog license. I must have this official vaccination red book in order to move to another city or to leave China with my family.
Official Spay/Neuter Certificate for Dogs:
I have already been spayed by my doctors at ICVS so the hospital will issue my new family an official Spay/Neuter Certificate that will provide my owners with a 50% discount (e.g., RMB 500.00 savings) on my dog license registration fee at the Public Security Bureau.
