Datu’s Story

It’s well known amongst animal activists that the Philippines is not a kind place towards animals, with some pet owners seeing the poor creatures as simple objects, to be discarded as they wish. Datu was found tied to the PARC facility’s gate early in the morning.

Those who were there when Datu was initially found speculate that he had been abused by his previous owners, causing his shy and timid nature amongst other people. With proper care and acclimation, Datu eventually came around to trusting humans once more. Though still cautious, Datu is very affectionate to people he sees as his friends.

Ideal Home

Datu is a smaller dog, and not very energetic at that. He’s plenty fine with other dogs, and displays (sometimes too much) curiosity towards cats. Datu’s ideal home would be a quiet household with plenty of physical contact to share. Datu loves being tickled around his lower back!
