Taiwan Dog Puppies

The Taiwan Dog is a purebred dog breed. This doggo goes by a few other nicknames, such as the Taiwanese Canis, Taiwanese Native Dog, Takasago Dog, and the Formosan Mountain Dog. Initially bred in Taiwan in ancient times, this dog breed was first developed for hunting and guarding dogs. If you want to learn more about Taiwan Dog puppies, keep reading. 

Where to get Taiwan Dog Puppies

You can begin your search for this pup by calling your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have Taiwan Dog puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption.

Most of these dogs have been at these places for a long time, waiting for the right family to come along. So, you can adopt and not shop while still getting a new furry friend. Plus, you’ll provide them with a forever, loving home.

On the other hand, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy and want to know where the dog came from, you can go through a reputable breeder. You can begin your search by looking at the AKC Marketplace for ethical breeders. Superlittle…

Luckily, you’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s healthy and safe to do so (then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Allow the parents and the litter to live in their home as part of the family without the use of kennels (aside from crate training)
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations

In addition, a good breeder will want to meet with you in person to get to know you so you can meet them, the parents, and the litter before deciding on adoption. Also, they’ll be open and honest with you. For instance, they’ll answer all of your questions about the breeder, the breed, the dogs and litter, or the breeding and adoption processes.

So, if you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you’ll want to avoid working with them. For instance, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill, and they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes.

The Cost

The average coat of Taiwan Dog puppies is between $300 and $2,000. However, the price can vary depending on a few factors, such as the time of year, the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, or the number of puppies in the litter.

Appearance

Taiwan Dog puppies will grow to be medium-sized dogs. For example, they can grow about 17 to 20 inches tall and weigh between 26 and 40 pounds. In addition, they have a short and smooth coat that can only come in white. Doudou…

Temperament

This doggo is loyal and affectionate with its family members. Also, they’re great around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people.

However, they’re first and foremost a watchdog and will bark to alert you of anything or someone coming. Also, they’ll need early socialization and training. They’re easy to train, though, because they’re eager to please their owners.

Finally, they have high energy levels. So, you can allow them to live in a bigger house with a fenced-in yard rather than an apartment.

Taiwan Dog Puppies – Veterinary Needs

As with all dogs, you’ll want to bring this pup to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. However, you’ll want to bring them to the vet a few times to keep track of their growth and development during their first year. Also, you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. 

However, there are a few health issues this pup can get, such as:

  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Canine Hip Dysplasia
  • Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
  • Patellar Luxation
  • Canine Glaucoma
  • Cataracts

With proper care, this purebred has an average lifespan of about nine and 13 years. 

Diet

With your vet’s approval, you can provide high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food. However, you also want to ensure appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. 

Grooming

When it comes to grooming, this breed isn’t too high-maintenance. You’ll be able to bring this dog breed to a professional grooming salon about once every four to five months. However, you can bathe them as needed at home to keep them in tip-top shape.

Also, they do shed a moderate amount. So, you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a week to keep them looking nice and to keep the loose hairs under control. 

Finally, remember to keep up with trimming their nails, cleaning their ears, and brushing their teeth regularly.
