They call me Cello jell-o. LOL. Look how gentle I am playing with a teeny dog: https://youtu.be/zAGTRDWVH4M. They are my fav: https://youtu.be/dj6Q31M6cyo. New update: I just went to an adoption event. I am doing so good and await my new home. https://youtube.com/shorts/5gTTU5ytz6Y, https://youtu.be/xeXs-TjNW3Y. UPDATE: I am now at a foster home around Toronto. I am settling in nicely here, but it can be lonely and so would really like to find my furever home. I will be flown to Vancouver if someone there decides I would be the perfect addition to their family. I am improving in all areas, as I have time to acclimate. I am an affectionate fellow with my trusted people. I’ve met a few new people at the kennel, and I even gave them kisses! I just need an understanding family that will be patient and give me time to calm in my new surroundings. Check out my most recent video: https://youtu.be/JVbxvJbLBIk. Don't I look happy? If you will just be willing to commit to a couple months with me, you will find I will be able to relax and trust. But I need that time. Then the real me... sweeet character will finally come out fully. New vids: https://www.youtube.com/watchv=UYZ0lU5haM0, https://www.youtube.com/shorts/01CzBY2KRNo, https://www.youtube.com/shorts/Uf_eO1asdjw, https://www.youtube.com/shorts/xvsSPyRixyw, https://www.youtube.com/shorts/aPWKj_fNbjs I came to Canada and had a foster, then an adopter, who gave me no time at all to adjust and decompress after my long trip and change of environment. So they had to move me about to prevent my going back to Turkey. I ONLY just arrived on July 31st. As a result of the constant changes, I started showing signs of stress, especially indoors. Everything is new and scary, so I am disoriented. Please help me. I am a 1 yr old, male, Great Dane mix who weighs in at 55 kgs. My height is 80 cm from ground to the shoulder and 107 cm from head to tail. I originally came from Turkey. They sent me to Toronto on Jul 31st. https://youtu.be/-10yNXw3BhQ I am a big boy who was living with 6 cats, 2 dogs (one is blind) and 3 people in the same home for 1 year. I got along with everyone in that home. Though I can be protective when I first meet a new person or dog/cat, with proper intros, treats (and time of course!) I can get along with most other animals and people. Energetic is a good word for a puppy like me, so a house with a garden would be better. I walk well on leash. I'm just a playful puppy yet https://youtu.be/KNUZl-indIY. I am an affectionate fellow, a love bug, they say. Never been around kids, so no idea on them. Older dog savvy kids are probably best, so I don't knock over any little ones inadvertently. 7 I almost died from starvation when I was first found as a little puppy. I still show a little bit of reactivity like growling when you take my food away. That too will just require time, realizing I will always have food now. It will diminish. My story? It all started with waking up my rescuer at 5 AM. She heard the crying of a dog. A tiny puppy all alone, unprotected and incredibly hungry. It was me. She took me in, this baby, who would have no luck surviving on the streets. My current situation is this: I feel safe when outside. I can walk on the leash without an issue and even let people pet me. However, when in the home, I do not feel comfortable. The closed in area makes me feel vulnerable. I need time more than anything in a safe, unchanging environment to learn everything is ok. Because of this, the people who have had me do not want to give me the reasonable time needed for such change. How lacking compassion is that? I need a home that has lots of space, as well as a spacious yard. I need slow introduction to things, then I do fine. Due to nearly starving, I do not like to be bothered when I am eating. I may growl at you if I think you are going to touch my food. That’s no problem though – I just need a quiet place to eat like my crate or another room. This behavior should diminish in time. I just need to build trust in my environment (time to explore it). I am sweet and docile, but do need a strong handler, as I am a big dog. I think I would do well with two good walks per day, plus potty breaks. Hoping my new family will be patient with me, gradually introducing me to the home and to all members of the family. They should also be willing to work with an approved positive reinforcement-based trainer if necessary to help build my confidence. There's always room for Cello...

For more info, please contact: email@example.com Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue. Information included in the profile is provided to us from the international rescuer or local fosters. LALDR does not have access to overseas dogs and cannot always verify the accuracy of their descriptions. Every dog is an individual and can act differently in different situations based on the person adopting them and the environment in which they live. Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives. Although a 1-on-1 trainer is often not needed, it is good to have someone in mind in case any problematic behaviours arise. Most bad behaviours can be modified if caught early enough, so make sure to nip undesirable behaviours in the bud before they become serious problems. Basic training should be taken seriously, but should not begin until your dog is well settled in - at least a couple of weeks. After you feel your new dog is relaxed and comfortable in their new home, check out training courses in your local area. Even basic beginner courses like those taught at a local pet store can have a huge benefit in helping your dog learn to socialize and get used to being in public situations, all with the added benefit of strengthening their bond with you. While most dogs find escorting passengers flying directly to Vancouver, some will find flights through Toronto or Montreal. In that case, additional fees will apply to fly your dog to Vancouver by cargo. Unaccompanied cargo costs within Canada range from $350 - $550 depending on the size of the dog. LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs. The age and breed of a dog is usually an educated guess, so we are not able to guarantee the accuracy of age or breed of our dogs. Normally, we will not approve adoptions to homes with children under 12 years of age. However if a dog has been determined to be good with children we will approve applicants with children 8 years or older. More information can be found on our website. show less
