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, Mia, is from ICVS’ Adoptable Pets.
Name: Hi there! My name is Mia.
Background: I was acquired from a local breeder by my mommy and while she has put a lot of hard work into raising me, it has been lots of fun living with her as well. Due to a change in her life situation, my mommy cannot give me the care and attention I need. So she is hoping to find a great new family that will love me and adopt me.
Personality: Mia is initially shy toward strangers, yet opens up quickly once she gets to know someone, expressing her affection by jumping excitedly and licking faces. Being a husky, she loves physical activities like jogging, chasing and pulling. Be careful; if you take the leash off of her she will want to play ‘tag’ with you, and unless you’re good at running, it can take a while before you catch her. Since Mia is still quite young, she is still very playful and has no problem socializing with either humans or dogs. Should you choose to adopt her, rest assured that there is still a lot of joyful puppy-play left in her. She already knows sit, fetch, lie down, stand, shake and play dead (in English and Chinese), although encouragement of the treats variety is always helpful.
Ideal home: I am fine with an individual owner, a couple or a family.
Breed: I am a beautiful Siberian Husky
Sex and age: Mia is a one year and nine months old (born March 26th 2013), female Husky. Her fur is short with a predominantly black and white coating as well as pale blue eyes. She has freckles on her nose, white ‘eyebrows’ and an extra vestigial toe on her right hind leg.
Medical notes: Health wise, Mia is spayed and has had all her shots. Apart from the occasional upset stomach (very common with huskies) she is in perfect health and we have worked hard to keep her on a healthy diet coupled with lots of exercise. Not a picky eater, but we have tried to restrict her diet to dog food as much as possible, to avoid any health issues.
Post-adoption care: The International Center for Veterinary Services (ICVS) has enrolled me into their Rescued/Stray/Rehomed Pet Adoption Benefits Program. ICVS will provide my new family with significant discounts (up to 50%) on my health examinations and vaccinations during my first year with my new adoption family.
Official Vaccination Certificate: With my next rabies vaccination at ICVS, they 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. I must have this official vaccination red book in order to move to another city or to leave China with my family.
Adult Dog and Puppy Obedience Training Programs at ICVS: ICVS has introduced new puppy and adult dog obedience training programs. The puppy training classes will help me and my family live a more harmonious life together! All profits from the puppy and adult dog training programs will be donated to the ICVS Non-Profit Humane Animal Welfare Programs! Please contact ICVS for more information about canine obedience training.
