Dog Quarantine During COVID

My wife is ABT with a Taiwanese passport and I am going to be starting my PhD at a university in Taiwan. We have previously lived in Taipei and gone through the process of importing and quarantining our dog, as all dogs from the USA are required due to rabies concerns. However, now that she and I will need to quarantine for 14 days and the dog’s quarantine is only 7 days, does anyone know what will happen after the dog quarantine is finished? Would a friend or family member be able to pick him up from his quarantine location and drop him off to us? Or, would he need to stay at the quarantine location until we can pick him up?

If anyone has information that would clear this up, please reply. Extensive searching hasn’t uncovered anything about this so far.

Also, I should mention that we have a family home to quarantine in rather than a quarantine hotel. So, hotel regulations won’t be an issue.

I have asked around. Before the regulations were tightened, apparently you could have someone pick up and deliver your dog. That was a while ago and still need confirmation. I would call 1922 and ask the authorities.

I think places like Xiaobai country club for dogs may take the dog, who would need a walk and fresh air after the trip.
