About The Author

In 2009, Steven adopted and rescued his first Formosan Taiwan Mountain dog named Cookie who was living with a foster mom in Redmond Washington. Steven quickly fell in love with Cookie and became extremely curious and fond of this type of dog.

At the end of 2010, Steven rescued yet another Taiwan dog named Chase who he found on Petfinder. After six months of corresponding with Chase’s foster mom he had him flown all the way from Taiwan to be part of his new family.
