芝麻的故事 Sesame’s Story:
Sesame is a sweet little boy. Originally, he had 2 good friends, a mixed breed dog and a little kitten, whom were adopted together with him by their owner from the Banqiao Shelter. However, we received a report about how the owner was abusing the animals. We contacted the Animal Protection Office and when they arrived at the scene, they found a dead dog and two starving animals, Sesame and the kitten (Liang Liang, who has been adopted).
For a dog Sesame’s size he should have been about 20kg, but was only 12 kg when he was found. The other dog was suspected to have died due to severe malnutrition. Sesame and Liang Liang were taken in to the government shelter at first, and the TSPCA later on adopted both of them out so that we could find them a home.
When we went to visit Sesame at the shelter, he knew we were there to help him and enthusiastically wagged his tail at the excitement of being able to leave the shelter. He is now out of the shelter and living in Taichung at TSPCA’s paid foster.
Sesame likes to stay with people and he is happy to interact with other dogs. Unfortunately, he has poor eyesight and when you get close to him or want to touch him, he might get slightly scared and shake a little, but there is no fear of him attacking you; he simply needs time to get used to you and your smell to become your friend.
