I ended up getting her. She is so well behaved…I managed to train her quickly. She has such a great temperament. I took her to a vet immediately, who gave her a clean bill of health.
I took her for 3 walks a day, and saw that her hips weren’t working the way they should…she was swaying. I took her to another vet who gave me the bad news.
Due to her being locked in a cage for 6 months, then tied up in an empty apartment for another 6 months, her hips never formed properly. She also has a genetic knee problem, which isn’t that bad. The hip problem is huge, instead of balls, it looks like an onion that had a bit sliced off…and theres an inflamation too.
So she will need a NT$ 300 000 hip replacement when she gets a bit older. I really hate this. I tried to give her the freedom she deserves, and it will be shortlived. I’m definitely going to give her the operation…even if I have to go door-to-door or jump in the van with that crazy Taiwanese dog fanatic.
