Ni Hao, escapaders! Let’s sniff out the dogs of Taipei…

Dogs of Taipei: Part 1

In Taiwan’s bustling, dog-lovin’ capital city of Taipei, you can find pampered pooches in strollers with personal fans (to combat the humidity), Poodles and Malteses rockin’ the most stylish cuts, herbal shop resident Dachshunds welcoming new customers, Shibas venturing night markets with their humans, a plethora of luxurious doggie spas and daycare centers, and even human tattoos of their precious best friends.

Sniff out my short 2-min video showcasing the Dogs of Taipei: Part 1!



Although countless dogs live wonderful lives in loving homes in Taiwan, strays are still found throughout the island (particularly in mountainous regions where dogs are likely dumped so they cannot find their way home). Like anywhere else in the world, animal shelters in Taiwan are overcrowded and lack sufficient funding. After the Taiwanese government banned euthanasia in 2017, the stray and shelter population subsequently increased; the ban was passed after a veterinarian, an animal lover who dedicated her life to helping animals, tragically committed suicide for having to euthanize over 700 animals in 2 years. As people continue to buy dogs and cats from pet stores and breeders in Taiwan (and of course, many parts of the world), we must urge people to always ADOPT, NEVER SHOP and spread awareness on responsible, humane pet ownership.

World Traveling Yorkie: How to Travel with Your Dog

BUT most people call me The Doob. I am the world traveling Yorkie. After being rescued by my pawsome humans from a miserable life in a crate, I transformed into an international foodie, 7 lb. pack leader, dog (and cat :)) advocate, and arguably the most masculine travel blogger. And, as my humans would attest, I am the self-proclaimed #1 Human Trainer. Since 2016, I’ve set my greasy paws on more countries than the average human on earth, making myself quite the expert traveling Yorkie. I admit having a bad case of FOMO so you’ll see me licking my chops to the yummiest food and marking up the coolest dog-friendly spots in the world. Besides barking out my unique experiences as a world traveling Yorkie, I’m here to teach you how to travel with your dog (your precious four-legged best friend) and keep him or her healthy (and happy) on the road! If you sniff out my little traveling Yorkie buttocks longer, you’ll find some healthy travel tips and paw-lickin’ recommendations for humans. As the alpha dog, I like to take care of everyone in my pack! And, if you make any purchase through this website (e.g. E-book, affiliate links, ads, etc.), you are helping to FEED A HOMELESS DOG (or cat). Wag your tail to that!
