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, Smoothie, is from ICVS’ Adoptable Pets.
Name: Hello Beijing! Pleased to meet you, I’m Smoothie!
Background: I was a stray puppy in Haidian found by my very kind rescuer mom, Laure Pernin!
My rescuer mom brought me to ICVS where I have been examined by my vet and declared healthy! I have been dewormed and have started vaccinations. I am ready for adoption and I am hoping to find a loving forever home in Beijing for the new year!
Personality: I am very sweet, a little shy but happy to meet new people! I am hoping for a kind and loving family that will give me lots of love and attention as I grow up.
Ideal home: I am fine with an individual owner or with a family with children (e.g., 8-years and older). I am playful and happy and active. I am a young puppy so my new family should be able to spend a lot of time with me at home.
Breed: Medium mixed breed dog.
Dog registration and Licensing: As an adult, I may be over 35 cms from the ground to the shoulder. I can be legally registered on the outskirts of Chaoyang and in Shunyi, Tongzhou, Huairou, Miyun, Pinggu, Changping and other districts outside of the 4th ring road.
Sex & Age: I am a 3-month old male puppy.
Medical notes: I am a healthy puppy. I have been dewormed, and have started vaccinations at ICVS. When I have completed my vaccinations, I will be neutered by my doctors at ICVS!
Post-adoption care: The International Center for Veterinary Services (ICVS) has enrolled me into their Rescued/Stray Pet Adoption Benefits Program. ICVS will provide my new family with significant discounts (up to 50%) on my health examinations, vaccinations and spay surgery!
Official Vaccination Certificate: With my rabies vaccination, 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: After my neuter surgery by my doctors at ICVS, the hospital will issue my new family an official Spay/Neuter Certificate that will provide my owners with a 50% discount (e.g., up to RMB 500.00 savings) on my dog license registration fee at the Public Security Bureau!
