Loved at Last Dog Rescue

Langley, BC, Langley, BC, V4W 1M6

Shelter Description

Loved at Last Dog Rescue is a a Vancouver, BC based, non-profit organization which rescues homeless dogs within BC and from overseas countries and finds them loving homes. Most of these dogs live short, difficult lives; each new day a challenge to find enough food to stay alive while trying to avoid people intent on torturing or killing them. The lucky ones are rescued, restored to health, and rehabilitated (where necessary) by compassionate individuals who then reach out to Loved At Last for help finding them loving homes in Canada. All of our dogs are treated for any injuries and illnesses, are spayed or neutered, and vaccinated. Many of them will have a missing limb that had to be amputated to save their lives. When they are ready to travel and a home has been found for them, they are flown to Vancouver to start their new and much improved lives. We do not have a physical shelter.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Hi there! My name is AAVEEN and here is some info about me: Breed: Lab mix Age: 8 mo Gender: m Weight: 37 lb / 17 kg Height: 25 in / 63 cm When I was about two months old, a woman in the Middle East found me at her front door. She brought me inside her home and cared for me. Now that I am old enough, I am ready for a home of my own in Canada. Living here is not safe at all for dogs. I am a very friendly guy, who loves people, dogs of all sizes and even cats. Snuggling has always been big on my hit parade list: https://youtu.be/8STbdL0dTKI. I also like to follow my people around everywhere. I'm only a baby yet, so will still grow. Maybe I will be about a medium-lg size dog, 55-60 lb range perhaps. Being cleaned up is a breeze, see how good I am having my paws cleaned:  https://youtu.be/V6vs4p3Jmq4. Additional vids of me: https://youtu.be/we39bmZcsyI https://youtu.be/jEhljxUZAGM https://youtu.be/RUtyRH2OJ-A Energy Level: moderate Get along with: Dogs, yes Cats, yes Kids, unknown Prey drive: probably low, given I like kitties. unknown for squirrels, rabbits, etc... My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown, none observed Training: none Leash skills, none. Will need patient training. House trained, no. Please be prepared to help me learn! 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 and should begin within a few days AFTER arrival. Check out courses in your local area and enrol right away. 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. Health notes: I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver. Due to ongoing limits on Vancouver flights yet, additional fees will apply if flying from another city. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada: $275-$500 per dog. LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs. I will be on the first available flight, as I need to leave the Middle East as soon as possible. If a flight directly to Vancouver is not found quickly after I've found a family, the extra cost for cargo to Vancouver from Montreal or Toronto will NOT be optional. If you would like to increase the chance of your dog coming sooner, the rescuer may be able to secure a cargo flight from the Middle East. This cost will likely be between $1200-3800 USD, dependent on size. 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. 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. More information can be found on our website. *Vaccinations: Dogs from the Middle East are vaccinated for rabies, parvo, distemper, leptospirosis, adenovirus type 1 and para-influenza. Bordatella is not given, as that has not been a problem in the Middle East.  show less

I will likely be sent to Canada via Montreal, which will entail the additional cost of cargo from Montreal to Vancouver. ANNA (Hanna) Breed: Lab/Border Collie Age: 7 months Gender: female Wgt/Hgt: 40 lbs / 18  inches Energy level: moderate Relations: good with dogs, not good with cats, unknown with kids Highlights: sweet and loves to play, accustom to wearing a collar Region: Middle East Anna here, also known as Hanna to my rescuer but there are too many pup’s named Hanna so we are switching it up! Normally when my fellow canines get rescued around here the rescuer finds them and saves them, but I was more proactive than the rest. I spotted a human who I knew was an angel and started following her everywhere, pleading for help with my best puppy-dog eyes and it didn't take much for her to take me in. I am an intuitive lady who knows what she wants.  I’m a happy girl who loves to play and have fun. I love getting attention and can’t wait to be petted all day long, with some breaks for hiking of course. I would very much prefer to live in a home with a fenced-in yard for me to play in but I might be able to handle the city condo life as long as you take me on lots and lots of adventures - please and thanks. If you ask me, I just know I’m going to be a great addition to your family. Want to give me a chance? Due to the ever-changing extenuating circumstances brought on by the Global Pandemic, we are struggling to transport dogs to Canada. I have been spayed, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.  If I am only acompanied as far as Montreal or Toronto, there will be an extra charge for the cargo flight from Montreal or Toronto to Vancouver, ranging from $250-$500 depending on the logistics. I will be on the first available flight, as I need to leave the Middle East as soon as possible. If my rescuer is only able to find a flight volunteer going as far as Montreal or Toronto, then the extra cost for cargo to Vancouver will not be optional.  Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore this dog is only available to Canadian residents. ANNETTE (Annie) You can call me little Miss Annie. As a very sweet and friendly, 3 year old, female, German Shepard & Anatolian mix, I am ready for my new home. My rescuers saved me along with my 6 puppies here in the Middle East. After a year in boarding all my puppies got sick and died. I've been at the shelter for 3 years now. I'm healthy and it's time to get out of here. My weight is 60 lbs and I stand 27 inches tall at the shoulders. So kind of a nice medium-large size, though maybe a tad leggy. I am good with other dogs and I like people. They give such good ear scratches. And kids are such a hoot. No knowledge of cats in my repertoire though. You can see in my video that I interact well with people loving me up. I'm a pretty mellow girl. I'd probably enjoy a not too overly exuberant family environment. Playing is a fun thing to do. I also like to go for walks and leisurely hikes. I hear there are some great places to sniff around in Canada and the Pacific NorthWest. More vids coming soon. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $700.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver. Due to ongoing limits on Vancouver flights yet, additional fees will apply if flying from another city.

**I have been posted since Sep/2019** I have a flight volunteer that can take me to Vancouver on Oct/10/2021 if I can find an adopter by then**  ARBO (Tobi) Breed: Chesapeake Bay Ret / Shepard Age: 6 yrs Gender: M, neutered Wgt/Hgt: 70 lbs / 25-1/2 in Relations: Good dogs / Unkn kids, cats Energy level: Moderate Highlights: highly intelligent, likes snuggling Region: Middle East I am quite the smart boy and just look at my luxurious ruddy brown colored coat. Handsome, hunh? My foot had been run over by a car when I was found. I lost a toe because of it. No worries, I have 15 others to help me walk. I have no trouble running and playing like everybody else. I am good with other dogs. I have been trainded and ready for new chapter of my life. Check my new video: https://youtu.be/QxvmgwUHmIA. Never lived around kids or cats, so no knowledge of how I might get along with them, but I like to learn about them so slow introduction makes me feel comfortabel to be around them.  I will need some additional basic training, as I am not yet house trained. I really haven't much been in a house. But, my intelligence should lend to quick learning. I am a very kind dog and I can be playful, so I hope you will enjoy teaching me some games. Of course, I am not opposed to just snuggling either though. See my contented look and smiley face in the photos? Sure hope you are ready to bring me into your home soon. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $700.00 CAD + applicable taxes, this includes my airfare to Canada if accompanied by a flight volunteer. Due to the ever-changing extenuating circumstances brought on by the Global Pandemic, we are struggling to transport dogs to Canada.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Hi there! My name is ASAL and here is some info about me: Breed: Australian Shepard / Saluki mix Age: 9 mo Gender: fe, spayed Weight: 20 kg Height: 60 cm Found with my brothers (Shooka and Dozzer) in the Middle East, our initial owner couldn't keep us. They wanted to euthanize us, but luckily we were saved just in time by a rescuer. Exploring. Who doesn't like that? I loves to explore everything and I mean EVERYTHING when I go for walks. My nise tells me so much about the world and what's going on. Although I get along with all dogs, I really like small dogs in particular. I prefer to approach dogs at my own pace, as I can get intimidated at first, if a dog approaches me first. Never aggressive though, just wary. Once the introductions are over and I am comfortable, it's all good. Great with adults and kids alike, I'm just hoping for a home that can guve me the love I an searching for... and a bed and a bone and a toy and... well, you get the picture. Oh a funny thing about me, I have a habit of staring at things. Kind of my zen time, I guess. I should be really good learning to focus for training. Energy Level: moderate Get along with: Dogs, yes - small dogs Cats, unknown Kids, yes Prey drive: unknown, not observed with cats, squirrels, rabbits, etc... My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown, prefers to approach other dogs first in her time rather than them coming to her first.

Hi, I'm Atom Ant, but you can call me Atom or Alex for short. I love my new adventure in Canada, I love food, treats, ear scratches, playing with my foster dad (the girls in the house think we're such bro's!) and just all together lounging around. Actually, I could have just said that I love life! It's so great that I get to enjoy this second part of my life, which will hopefully make the first terrible part a distant memory. My foster mom thinks I'm quite intelligent, always looking to sneak in a play, but I am also eager to learn and very eager to please! Not picky at all - you can easily use my dry pellets as motivation or training treats. I might seem like a bit of a goofball, but just strap on some wheels and I instantly transform into a prancing pony. The wheels are still new to me, but I took to it quite well and while we're doing short walks now, we're working on going a little bit further each time and sometimes I even add a short run if I feel up to it.  My hind legs have been amputated, but you wouldn't believe how fast I can scoot around the house and zoomie on my front legs. They have become super strong and I even have the balance to pick up my back end for short distances. I sure do love a  sniff around the house or the garden! My dream home would have an easily accessible large patch of grass to explore or a large room with lots of space - did I mention I'm a big guy? My foster sis, Koala, thinks I'm a bit of a chonky boy, but I just think there's more of me to love. Anyways my foster mom is keeping an eye on my diet and trying to keep it healthy. Now I know what you're thinking - how do I do my business - ahem - the number ones and twos? I can totally do this on my own, but my foster mom has also found it helpful to express my bladder in the morning, after lunch and just before bedtime. You'll have to ask her how she does it, but all I know is that I play along and get really nice ear scratch at the end of it. This, as well as a regular mealtime routine has really helped to minimize 'accidents' throughout the day and especially overnight! If you are looking for a companion who will be loyally at your side for all of it, sharing in your excitement, reminding you that there's more to life, look no further - I'm your guy!" Atom Ant (Alex) Breed: Anatolian Shepherd mix Age: 2 years Wgt/hgt: 66 lbs Gender: M, will remain intact Relations: Good with dogs/ unknown cats & kids Activity level: Moderate for cart dog.  Needs to lose a pound or two. Highlights: Rear disabled, sweet, good with other dogs, playful and friendly Region: Middle East I am a very sweet, young boy who was in dire need, as my shelter was closing down. Thankfully, a lovely person in Canada has offered to foster me, so I have finally made it here.  I was found with all my legs tied up with a rope and run over by a car. I endured hellish pain. Some rescuers stepped in and I underwent severe surgery enduring pain and hardship for several months, but I was still able to recover. So, I was kept at a place after surgery, but because of improper care, I was hospitalized. I was then taken to my current shelter. It is extremely difficult to find homes for able bodies dogs, let alone one paralyzed. If a place for me had not been found, they feared they would have to euthanize me. Such a shame after so much was done to save me. Now, I have a chance at a new life. Though alas, I am paralyzed forever and my back legs have been amputated, which took a load off me, but I can never play like other dogs... I have so much love to give and cuteness of personality to show you. You may think it may be sad for me to be disabled, but it is just the way my life is and I enjoy being alive and able to share my love of life with others. LALDR will provide a cart for me once I am in my new home, so I can learn to zip around like Lightning McQueen, Mario Andretti, Speedy Gonzales, Usain Bolt... Hahaa.   My adoption fee is $500.

Attention: I have a flight volunteer that can take me to Vancouver on Oct/10/2021 if I can find an adopter by then  Name: AVA (Raha) Breed(s): Husky/Saluki Age: 4 years old Gender: Fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 60 lb / 23-1/2 in Activity level: average/normal Relations: good with dogs (kids too, though no video yet) / not good with cats Highlights: playful, happy, desires all the attentio I’d love to become the next pup-star in a forever home in Canada; I’m a playful girl who’s super ready to get on the spotlight of your life. You might’ve read your fair share of dramatic celebrity stories and this one is no different. I’m originally from the Middle East, and here stray dogs don’t have the best luck. I wasn’t having a good time on the streets when my wonderful agent (another amazing girl), aka rescuer, found me and took me to the hospital to receive the medical attention I desperately needed. I had been beaten up by truly awful humans and as a result, the vet said, I had a couple of broken bones and was in a lot of pain, which explained why I was crying for help when my agent discovered (rescued) me. After successfully undergoing a surgery, my lovely agent was super kind and once again lent me a helping hand. I stayed with her for a couple of weeks until I fully recovered and was ready to go back with my kind, other pup-stars; then I was transferred to the shelter where I’m staying now. I live with a bunch of other nice dogs with whom I play daily and have a cool time. But as a very versatile performer, I’m not only good with dogs; in fact, I love spending time with humans too. They’re probably my favorite audience! (I haven’t figured out how to interact with cats yet, so I’d rather stay away from them). Everything was going great. I had a place to stay and friends to hang out with, but I felt sick again. I was taken to the vet; this time it was something called intestinal obstruction, and I had to enter the operating room once more. I’m a very resilient girl, you know? As most struggling artists must be to make it in this business, I stayed strong and now I’m totally okay. However, the poor diet I was following (leftover and bones) while on the streets proved to be damaging to my stomach. For this reason, the doctor says I’ll need to stay on a healthy diet (high-fiber food and no bones or things like that) for the rest of my life to avoid having the same issue again. But hey, it’s not like it’d be super hard, right? It’s a good way to stay in shape anyway. I’m good with dogs and enjoy playing and having fun with them and all sorts of activities, but there’s something that bothers me meeting new friends… As any sensitive artist, I like being the center of attention. So, I tend to feel sad and a little depressed when I’m not the one receiving the entire spotlight. Maybe that’s why I’m sometimes misunderstood as jealous, but the truth is I only want all the affection and love I can get. I mean, I’ve spent a long time without it, so I think it’s only fair I’m the one receiving all the cuddles and kisses available. My agent thinks that I’d be better in a home with no other pets to avoid any misunderstanding and let my creative soul shine. At least in the beginning. Don’t get me wrong, I can spend time with other pets, male dogs are the coolest, but the introduction needs to be slow and patient. I need to make sure they’re not after my spotlight, so I can feel safe and let my lovely personality fully out. I’m a completely healthy and vibrant-spirited artist now, so I can enjoy life as any other dog would. All I’m waiting for now is to find my forever home. I’ve been lucky to meet great people and dog friends since I was found, and I’m pretty sure I’ve collected memories to write a memoire at any time, like some of my fellow artists, but I still feel like the most important chapters are waiting ahead, would you help me with them for the years to come? I’m so ready to get the main role I’ve been waiting for my whole life, as the beloved dog in a wonderful family. Ready to be the life-agent of the sweetest pup-star and prepare to star in a show that will transcend time? My adoption fee is $650.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver. Due to the ever-changing extenuating circumstances brought on by the Global Pandemic, we are struggling to transport dogs to Canada.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, Belfi is only available to Canadian residents. Due to current travel restrictions related to COVID-19, there may be a long delay before I can get to you. Please only apply for me if you are prepared to wait. Hello every-paw-dy!  My name is BELFI and here is some information about me: BREED: Maltipoo Mix AGE: 2 years GENDER: Male, neutered WEIGHT/HEIGHT: 11 lbs / tbd I was born somewhere in the Middle East and was taken from my mom when I was just a tiny puppy. The family I was given to kept me locked in a small, dark room with no one checking on me for days at a time. I could hear people outside my door but nobody wanted to talk to me. I spent my days lonely, thirsty, hungry and very scared. Occasionally, the door would open and someone would throw me a piece of dry bread for me to eat. One day, when the door opened, I got really excited and ran out. If I had known what was going to happen next- I would have thought twice! I was grabbed by the leg and tossed out the second floor window. The nightmare wasn’t over yet- the man who threw me grabbed me from the street and took me back to the dark room. I was in so much pain and some days wished I hadn’t survived the fall. I remember him taking photos of me, but I had no idea why. Then, when I was ready to quit all together, the door opened and there she was- my rescue mom! She had seen a post advertising me for sale. One look at my photo and she knew I needed help. My rescue mom took me straight to the hospital and they found I had three broken legs. I had to have surgery right away! They fixed two of my legs but one of my back legs was badly damaged. Here's me being held during my recovery: https://youtu.be/eCWad7JjBLc I still have my leg, but it’s a tiny bit shorter than the rest of my legs. I have a limp, but  it doesn’t stop me from living life to the fullest! Long story short, against all odds, I made it! Now, my dream is to find a loving home with my forever family, preferably with a yard I can call my own. I can be shy at first, but if you give me time to get to know you I am a very cuddly and affectionate boy. I love belly and head rubs! I am also smart and eager to learn. Here's me drinking from a faucet: https://youtu.be/QGh9jGE-Ge8 I do not like being confined to a crate. It brings back not-so-happy memories. I enjoy walks, roaming around the yard, car rides and cuddling up with my human after a long day. Here's me on the go: https://youtu.be/_mg3G43ooWo ENERGY LEVEL:  Moderate GETS ALONG WITH: Dogs- YES (see video) Cats- unknown Kids- unknown PREY DRIVE: None, not observed with cats, squirrels, rabbits, etc... My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. FEARS: I am not very fearful; I am a brave little guy! TRAINING: Leash Skills: Work in progress! I am good on leash, but I am not ready to walk off-leash! House trained: Unknown. I know how to pee on a pad and sometimes outside. Be prepared to help me master peeing outside Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives.

HEALTH NOTES: I have been neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. I have a little limp but it does not stop me from being the happy dog I am. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. Due to ongoing limits on Vancouver (YVR) flights, additional fees will apply if I have to fly through another city. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada range from $275-$500 per dog (size depending). LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs. NOTE: once I find a family, I will be on the first available flight out of the Middle East seeing as I need to leave here ASAP! If a direct flight to Vancouver is not immediately available, the cost to fly me via unaccompanied cargo from Montreal/Toronto to Vancouver will not be optional. If you would like to increase the chance of me coming sooner, my rescuer may be able to secure a cargo flight from the Middle East. This cost will likely be between $1200-3800 USD, dependent on size.  Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore this dog is only available to Canadian residents. BENJIE (Brigitte) Breed: Aidi mix (Atlas Shepard dog) Gender: fe, spayed Age: 4 years old Wgt/Hgt: 44 lbs/almost 25-1/2 inches Relations: Good other dogs/good with kids (per policy)/ unknown cats Activity Level: Moderate to moderate-high Highlights: Loves people, food motivated (great for training), calm temperament Region: Middle East Sometimes bad things happen that lead to wonderful opportunities... that is my story. I was involved in a serious car accident here in the Middle East and the people who found me thought it best to put me down, as my treatment would be too costly, but lucky for me there were others willing to step in and help with the surgery costs. But my story does not end there. It was not long before they came to learn I also had parvovirus. Things did not look good for me, but I am a survivor and after months of care I was finally strong enough to undergo the extensive surgery I needed. The surgeon had very little hope I would walk again, but again I amazed them! With physiotherapy and lots of love, I was able to regain the use of my legs quite well, if I may say so myself. You may note a touch of a drag in my back leg a bit, but it certainly doesn't effect me or slow me down. Check out my videos. https://youtu.be/qaFU1lT28HE. Then I was running too https://youtu.be/KwmvoM9yLPs. When I was living on the street food was scarce, so now I will eat and eat and eat ... I am very food motivated. Bet you could use that to your advantage to teach me lots of tricks.  Next to food my favourite thing is tummy rubs and will drop whatever I am doing to get one of those! I am a people pleaser and love all of you two legged creatures... especially the youngsters - I very much enjoy playing with children. Other dogs used to scare me a bit, but now I am fine with them, big or small. No one is 100% sure how I will react to cats, as there are none here at my new foster, but one of the rescue volunteers remembers me during my time on the street and never once witnessed any aggression by me towards the cats that approached my food. I have encountered cats on my walks with my foster and I do pull, but it is thought it is out of curiousity, not aggression. https://youtu.be/690U-kbYCEM. The lock down was hard on everyone. But at my foster, I blossomed into a healthy happy dog with a calm temperament full of love for everyone. My foster thinks I am just the sweetest dog around.  I started having infection & pain issues. It was determined defective metal was used during my surgery. I had another surgery and the vets removed the bad metals and replaced them with the proper titanium ones. I am now in little to no pain. Due to several surgeries though, my skin is not healing well (not closing properly.) The vet team is going to be doing laser treatment to help. Once the scar situation is resolved there is nothing more needed for my medical condition. I am gaining weight now and becoming more playful day by day. Not quite ready to travel yet though, but soon hopefully. I just had my first physiotherapy for my back leg to gain additional strength. Stay tuned for further updates.  Check out the new video above (top one) of me playing and this one too https://youtu.be/WlaqkCC32xE. If it weren't for the slick tiles (I'm still building strength), I'd be giving those other guys a run for their money. Now it is time for a new chapter, the one that has lead me here... one I hope, involves a forever home in Canada with you !  I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $700.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada if a flight is found direct to Vancouver. Due to limits on Vancouver flights yet, additional fees may apply if flying from another city. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada: $275-$500 per dog.

Please note additional fees further below that may apply to get me to Vancouver. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore this dog is only available to Canadian residents. BENNEY Breed: Whippet/Shepard Age: 1-1/2 yrs Gender: fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 44 lbs / just under 24 inches Energy level: high Relations: good with dogs /unknown cats & kids Highlights: tripaw, boundless energy, affectionate Region: Middle East A girl of limitless wonder of the world, I want to explore it all. I have plenty of energy to do it too. I was found on a road outside a city in the Middle East. I had a wounded and infected paw/leg. I wasn't even a year old yet when they found me. Despite all medical efforts, they had to amputate my leg. No worries, it hasn't affected my disposition in the least. Affection is my middle name. I will give you as many hugs as you can handle.  In fact, you can hug me aaaaall day long. I will soak it up like a sponge. I am also quite playful. I can run around all day just playing and playing... well, in between hugs that is. Hug, play, hug, play... I get along fine with other dogs, so having a playmate is great by me, whether canine or human. I've never been around cats or children. With my energy level, I might be a bit much for any younger or smaller kids and cats, well, they'd probably just be something to enjoy chasing for fun. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $750.00 CAD + applicable taxes.

UPDATE: Well, I'm here...in Canada...yes, really!! Unfortunately, the person who was going to adopt me had a family emergency so I am in need of another adopter. Hey, it could be you! Just check the rest of my bio. I am a social dog who would just love to have a close relationship with a kind human. Perhaps that's you! I would also appreciate a home with a yard but, as I am missing one of my front legs, it is perhaps best if I am in a home with only a few stairs. I don't need long walks as I can get tired quite quickly, at least right now. Once I've adjusted to this healthy Canadian lifestyle, I might have more energy. I do enjoy walks around my back yard, however, and also relaxing on the couch. Oh, and another thing I have learned in Canada is how to be housetrained (I think that's the word you use). I'm now quite good at it - smart, eh?! I still have a bit of separation anxiety but my foster mom is helping me with that so it shouldn't take to long before I've learned that too! I am sooo looking forward to my own home. Please say you have room on your couch for me? BETA Breed: Beagle mix Age: 2 years Gender: female, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 40 lbs/ 20 inches Energy level: moderate Relations: good with dogs, good with cats, likely good with kids Highlights: shy, loving, smart Region: Middle East Oh hi, my name is Beta. Let me tell you a little bit about my journey.  Like most dogs where I'm from, I was born as a stray. Even though most of us don’t make it to adulthood, against all odds and horrible living conditions, I managed to stay alive. It was hard to wake up everyday, not knowing if I was going to find a piece of bread or something that would take my frail body to the next day. I got pregnant and before I knew it, I had five beautiful puppies. I loved them and did everything in my power to keep them safe. I no longer cared about being hungry and put every ounce of my energy into raising my pups. One morning I woke up and I noticed some humans approaching us. I started wagging my tail, hoping that they would see how cute I was and help us out with some food. Boy, was I ever wrong! I became very scared and confused, I could hear loud banging noises and after each bang, I noticed my babies falling onto the ground, motionless, lifeless. I didn’t know what was happening, I felt hopeless. All my babies were murdered in front of me. Suddenly, I felt an excruciating pain in my body. I didn’t know what had happened. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t get to my babies and lick them better. I don’t remember what happened next, but when I opened my eyes, I saw some local people gathered around me and my lifeless babies, there was blood everywhere. Some were crying for me and my babies because they had seen what those mean people had done to us. They brought me water and food, but if you think I had the slightest appetite, well, you are wrong! It was days before my rescuer found me. She picked me up and took me straight to the hospital. I had a severe gunshot wound to my front leg. It was infected and they didn’t think I could make it. My rescuer didn’t give up on me and decided to go ahead with the surgery. I was in a lot of pain. Once again, against all odds, I had made it! My care giver, cleaned my wound everyday and reassured me that I will be healthy again. She was right! Despite everything I have gone through, I have nothing but love to give. My rescuer showed me that there is good in this world and I am forever thankful for that. I love all people, big or small. I love to cuddle and have head and belly rubs. I live with a lot of my sisters and brothers at the shelter as well and these weird looking dogs that meow! Here is a video of me being silly https://youtu.be/o7e7-y9PNQA It is really busy where I live right now and sometimes, I get a little scared when I hear a loud bang or loud noise. I mean, how can you blame me given what I had to endure? I have lived in the shelter for a while now and am getting better and better everyday. I am slowly learning that not everyone is mean.  I may only have three legs but it does not stop me from enjoying life and playing with my friends. Ideally, I could find a calm, quiet home where I can be spoiled and of course, I would never say no to a yard of my own. I am going to need some practice walking on lead since no one here has time to train us. Plus, it's not like we can go out for walks, it's a bit risky in the Middle East! I have heard of these things called doggie toys. I am excited to have one of my own one day. Apparently, they are a lot of fun to play with and chew on.  I kind of know how to pee outside but, may need some training and guidance as I have never lived in a nice home or gone for pee breaks. I promise, I am very smart and a fast learner and will not disappoint you. I want to leave my past where it belongs and start a new life with my loving family in my forever home. If you look into my eyes, I promise you, you will fall in love with me and see my wholesome soul. I have been spayed, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $750.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.    Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Hi there! My name is BETY and here is some info about me: PHYSICAL INFO: Breed: Lab Mix Age: 2 years Gender: Female Weight: 35 lbs (16 kg)  Height: TBD RESCUE STORY: I was found all alone at a toll stop along the highway in Jalisco. I showed early symptoms of distemper, but luckily I received medical attention immediately and was able to survive! I am also one of the lucky ones to not have any residual effects of the virus. TEMPERAMENT: I can be a bit shy when I meet new people and dogs, however onces I gain confidence, I am incredibly sweet and affectionate. I am an obedient pup and oh-so friendly. My rescuer says that I love to play but also know how to behave in a home (without destroying things!) I love to be with people and I LOVE belly rubs!  ENERGY LEVEL: Moderate GETS ALONG WITH: Kids – Unknown, most likely OK with kids 8+ Dogs – YES! I currently live with multiple other dogs and we get along great. (https://youtu.be/OxR7FD_Rlmw) I can be a wee bit jealous about sharing my resources, so if I live with another dog, it would be good to feed us in separate rooms. But look how much fun I have at daycare (https://youtu.be/gblENipSSM4) Cats – YES! Check out the pic of me cuddling with my kitty friend Luna. (https://youtu.be/ZGYegp_vxok) PREY DRIVE: Low I’m not too sure how I’ll react around Canadian squirrels/rabbits etc. My adopter needs to be prepared and willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. FEARS: TBD TRAINING: Leash skills – I walk nicely on leash, although I may pull a bit when I see another dog to play with. (https://youtu.be/SrnZwtZTVwU) House trained – I know to do my business outside on my walks. If I don't get to go out often enough, I may have an accident inside though.

I am currently in San Francisco. I am available to WA adopters. Additional fees may apply to get me to Vancouver. BISKITT (Biscuit) I am a neutered 2-1/2 yr old male, 78 lb, 27-1/2 inch tall, Shepard mix with moderate energy, originally from the Middle East, who loves people, including kids. Being a very sweet and gentle boy, I love cuddling. Be it known though, I do need time to decompress and become familiar with everyone. Please don't press, but give me time. Once I know you, I will bond strongly. As I was a bit anxious when I arrived, my rescuer has me in some prozac right now. I should be able tp wean off after a while. Found on the streets at only a few months old, a friend of my rescuer adopted me. Sadly, due to my owner's sickness, my adopter had to give me up. As you can probably guess, I'm a people dog. Love the peeps. I am also good with dogs of all sizes, as you can see in my video playing with a dog smaller than me. Oh, and kids, love them too... after all, they are just miniature hoomans. I enjoy following my owner everywhere she goes. Yup, hoomans are my cup 'o tea. Extra score, I am house trained. You'll just need to show me the proper place at my new home. My rescuer is also working on my leash manners and further social skills. Learning can be fun. I'd really enjoy some sort of yard. Hoping we can go hiking and to the beach. Oh yeah. You oughta be able to get some super cute pics of me as a new Canadian puptizen, as I am quite photogenic. I mean, look at this cute face, who can resist? Awaiting my new home, as I came to the US not long ago and am currently fostering with my rescuer in California. I can be adopted to a family in WA too. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver. I will be coming up from the US, so likely there will be a cost for a pet van service to bring me up, between $150-250.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Hello! My name is BLACKBERRY and here is some info about me: Breed: Lab mix Age: 2 yrs Gender: fe Weight: 51 lbs / 23 kg Height: 65 cm I was living in a park in a major city in the Middle East when a nice lady found me and started feeding me. She noticed that a young man was beating me consistently at the park and sometimes throwing rocks at me when I would get close to him. She got very upset with the man and arranged for a local shelter to come and pick me up. She figured that living at a shelter would be better than being beaten at the park every day and she was right. You can see the vid of me a few days before I was picked up to go to the shelter. I was being hit and beaten by a bunch of teenagers, yet note how friendly and sweet I still was with my rescuer. My nature is just sweetness galore, like a bowl if blackberries. Mmm. I have been at the shelter only a very short time yet and I need to get used to the other dogs first before they will let me out with everyone. It’s for my own safety. I get along very well with everybody. Even though I was beaten at the park, I am very friendly and love people. Go figure! I'm a pretty relaxed, happy go lucky girl. I absolutely love to eat (watch my weight with the treats. Heehee.) That is how they were able to lure me to the van to get me to the shelter. After all, I wouldn’t get much to eat at the park. As you can see in the movie, I love to be pet and love attention. I pretty much already know how to shake. It's a great trick for getting people to give me yummy goodies. I would do very well in a home with other dogs. There weren’t too many cats where I was nor where I am right now, so I don’t know how I would react to them. Energy Level: medium to high, depending on circumstances. Get along with: Dogs, yes Cats, unknown Kids, unknown (rescuer states loves kids, but no video available at this time) Prey drive: Seems low to non-existent, but unknown. Not observed with cats, squirrels, rabbits, etc... My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown, none observed Training: none Leash skills, none. Will need patient training. House trained, no. Please be prepared to help me learn! 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 and should begin within a few days AFTER arrival. Check out courses in your local area and enrol right away. 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. Health notes: I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver. Due to ongoing limits on Vancouver flights yet, additional fees will apply if flying from another city. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada: $275-$500 per dog. LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs. I will be on the first available flight, as I need to leave the Middle East as soon as possible. If a flight directly to Vancouver is not found quickly after I've found a family, the extra cost for cargo to Vancouver from Montreal or Toronto will NOT be optional. If you would like to increase the chance of your dog coming sooner, the rescuer may be able to secure a cargo flight from the Middle East. This cost will likely be between $1200-3800 USD, dependent on size.

Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Hi friends! My name is BLAZE and here is some info about me: Breed: Suberian Husky Age: 8 mo Gender: m Weight: 26 kg Height: 65 cm A sad, but common occiremce here in the Middle East... I was left by someone at a vets office to be euthanized, because they had bought me and then decided that it was too hard for them me, so they abandoned me at the vet. Thankfully, many of the rescuers know the vets and one of them was contacted. Super cute and friendly too, I love other dogs and humans. I get along with dogs small and large. https://youtu.be/9CibJc-ufHU. I just ignore them, if I am not playing. I love attention and when someone pays more attention to another dog than me, I sometimes bark and try to get their attention by nudging them. So, I have respect with others. I am not very food motivated, but I have a good appetite. I can be very vocal (as any proud husky is) and love to sing. Just play me a song and I will sing along. I have been moving from foster home to foster home and I am afraid that they might put me in a shelter soon. I am not used to living in a shelter with it's tough life style, so I really hope that I will get adopted by a loving family in Canada soon. With the weather getting cold, I would love to be able to run around with other dogs in a climate that is more suitable for me.  I've an award winning personality and the looks to go with it. Are you ready for a star? Here I am. Energy Level: High, as most huskies tend to be. Get along with: Dogs, yes Cats, unknown (see prey drive info) Kids, unknown (Rescuer states I love kids, but none have been around to video thanks to covid) Horses, yes, I have been introduced with no issues, please see video. Prey drive: Being a husky, it should be high, but my rescuers state I am a good boy around cats and small animals. (However, there is no video of this to show, so must list as unknown.) My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise though. Fears: unknown, none observed Training: none Leash skills, none. Will need patient training. House trained, no. Please be prepared to help me learn!

UPDATE: I am now in Canada and wow, do I like the outdoors! I am looking forward to a loving adopter who has a back yard that I can explore and in which I can do all those doggie things (you know...run around, fetch a ball, answer the call of nature...you get the idea). My foster says that I've been doing really well on my housetraining now that I have a yard. Simple solution, eh?! It's also a whole bunch of fun to go out and just sniff the air for all those cool smells like squirrels, rabbits, other dogs, cats, food. I can hardly wait to find my forever home and to be able to show you all the love I have to give! CARROT (Shmoo) Breed: Golden Retriever/Germ Shep Age: 5 years Gender: Fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 50 lbs / 26-1/2 inches Relations: Good with Cats and dogs  Energy level: moderate/average Highlights: kind natured, sweet, quiet Region: Middle East Like my color. Nope, not orange... nope, not red... yup, I call it carrot. See that smile of mine. Carrots give you nice teeth. I’m a very sweet girl, who’s been through a lot, and still managed to keep my kind spirit unbroken. My life didn’t start off well. When my rescuer found me, I was almost gone, since I had been severely abused and beaten. But there was still hope, so they chose to fight with me. After 43 days in the hospital under serious medical care (yes, it was touch and go there for a while), I finally won the hardest battle of my life, and I earned a warrior's title. My rescuer says I’m the perfect example of strength, courage and determination, because I never gave up on myself. And with their help, I survived all the bad things that had happened to me. And look how beautiful I turned out to be! #spiceycolor. It was exhausting though, so now I’m looking for a home where I know I’m safe to spend my days relaxing, having fun and learning how amazing affection, closeness and attention can be. I know I can win your heart over too, I just need a chance. I’m eager to show you how bright my kind nature can shine in the right place with the right people, who are willing to keep fighting with me, but this time for a life full of happiness and love. At the moment, I tend to be timid/skittish, but can you blame me? It was a rough time. I think the one who hurt me was a man, because I feel scared around them, and I am careful about women too. You know, I can be a little too cautious. But I’m sure all it takes is someone willing to show me there are good things in the world. I am a smart girl too, so it shouldn't take long with a bit of patience to teach me how great things can be. Fun walks, treats, toys, belly scratches…. love. A moderate activity level, but calmer environment would suit me. Currently I live with a nice foster lady who has couple of cats and a bunny and I was super cool and chill around them. I love outdoor space so having a home with yard is really important for me ;) Given the circumstances, I am not yet housetrained, but should pick that up quick. I’m quite smart and I know how to overcome a challenge. Also, I'm betting once I learn to trust you, snuggling will be a great pleasure. Love conquers all. I look forward to starting a new life in Canada and will be sure to bring lots of love and fun to my new home. C’mon, choose me. Here I am at my foster home with my cat siblings https://youtu.be/kJxb1cTENXs  I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $700.00 CAD + applicable taxes.

My name is Chakavak, I'm looking for a family :D I used to live in the foothills where I was constantly attacked by other dogs.

Hello, I am Chica, a 57lb, 9 year old, beautiful Old English Sheepdog, originally from S.Korea and recently arrived in Canada.  I'm a happy, confident dog and I'm having a lot of fun as I get to know the pleasures of life outside a shelter.   I'm currently in a foster home in Kelowna where I share space with 4 other dogs and am learning how to be better at sharing. I tend to be protective of my food; my foster dad says I give a warning growl or 'air snap" at the other dogs. (It appears I must have had surgery to sever my vocal chords at some point, so it's not easy for other dogs to hear my growl or bark, hence the need to add the 'air snap' to get the message across.) My foster dad is working on this though and he says I'm improving. Aside from that, I am great around other dogs and very easy to take to the dog park or the local beach. Check out the photo taken of me standing in the lake at the dog beach here in Kelowna - cool huh!  I met all shapes and sizes of dogs down there and was friendly with one and all, including the humans and their kids.  Even though I was off leash at the beach I would frequently stop and check to see where my foster dad was, despite the fact I've only been in his care for 4 days - that's how quickly I bond to someone. You'll find I'm an affectionate dog too! As I adjust to this life I'm becoming more active than I was back in Korea.  I enjoy bursts of energy when I'll play with my new best friend, Charlie the pitbull, and I am quite enthusiastic about going for a walk when the leash appears.  Once we're outside I'm easy to walk and my smiley face and bobbing ears tend to make people happy.  I'd love it if you could come and meet me; even though I'm having fun here, I really want to find my forever home soon.   Here's my original bio written before I arrived in Canada, along with video's taken there when my name was Homil: I was rescued in S Korea by some awesome people with 26 other dogs from an illegal breeding farm where I spent the majority of my time in a meshed floor cage with no human interaction.  While I was still a puppy a family had purchased me from a pet shop, but after I outgrew my puppyhood, my family returned me to the pet shop.  Since I was no longer little and cute, the pet shop gave me to the breeding farm.  (you can see one picture from when I was rescued, see how much more beautiful and happy I look now?) Despite those beginnings, I am very affectionate and gentle.  My handler describes me as always in a bright and cheery mood.  I am even good with strangers, as long as they keep petting me :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SG3DqmNGkQ&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JyHPBjWaFR9ib0-7IPea_DC&index=1 Other dogs are good, I have no problem getting along with them, but prefer my people.  After being introduced and greeting dogs, I just generally go on my way and do my own thing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G53RYdaDXIQ&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JyHPBjWaFR9ib0-7IPea_DC&index=4  I am even good with CLD (Cranky Little Dog) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZvbL8fdJZg&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JyHPBjWaFR9ib0-7IPea_DC&index=5 .  I could probably accept a little human too with the right introduction.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIOY9gcG4Tk&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JyHPBjWaFR9ib0-7IPea_DC&index=3 I also show little to no interest in cats, so could probably co-exist peacefully with them with the proper introductions.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBQXEsoBZwM&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JyHPBjWaFR9ib0-7IPea_DC&index=6 For the most part, I am very calm and good, especially during walks  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xW9vM8E6Xlg&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JyHPBjWaFR9ib0-7IPea_DC&index=8.   While I love my humans, I am also independent enough to spend time on my own.  Due to my history of being kept in a cage for so long, I don't love being in a crate, but since I am a good girl and will usually stay with my person, hopefully it won't be needed. There have been a few health issues along the way (but at 9 I am entitled) I was heartworm postive at one point, but have been clear since Feb 2021 and had another negative test was June 27th, 2021.  There was an aural hematoma that required surgery in June 2020, but has been good since.  I also had some inflammations between my toes and in my ears.  They have been clear since June 2020, but my new family should be aware of them.  There are a couple lipomas (fatty deposits) on my shoulder, waist and,ahem, bottom, but the vet says they are just age related and need no treatment.   So what do you say?  After reading my story and seeing how sweet I am, are you ready to bring me to my forever home?     I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $550 + tax.

Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Hi there! My name is Cooper and here is some info about me: Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix  Age: 8 months Gender: Male Weight: 8 lbs Height: tbd I was found in a dumpster in the Middle East alongside my siblings. Unfortunately, none of them survived. I had parvo, but I’m fully recovered now! I am also fully blind, but I am extremely friendly and trust everyone I meet at first sniff. Don't think I am an invalid due to lacking sight, I can sniff out where you are, find my toys and once I learn my surroundings will be able to negotiate around furniture pretty much like any other dog. Provided you don't start rearranging on me. Ha. As you can see, I can take care of myself pretty well. See me giving the big dog a what for in the video? https://youtu.be/rMX7ZFHc8oY ENERGY LEVEL: Moderate to high GETS ALONG WITH: Kids:  UNKNOWN Dogs – YES Cats: UNKNOWN FEARS: Unknown, none observed. PREY DRIVE: Unknown- not observed with cats, squirrels, rabbits, etc... My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. TRAINING: Leash Skills: Unknown. I have little experience on leash and I am not ready to walk off-leash! House trained: Unknown. I know how to pee on a pad and sometimes outside. Be prepared to help me master peeing outside. 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 and should begin within a day or two of arrival. After your dog has settled in, check out 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. HEALTH NOTES: I have not been spayed (eligible at 8 mo. old), I have been *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $700.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. Due to ongoing limits on Vancouver (YVR) flights, additional fees will apply if I have to fly through another city. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada range from $275-$500 per dog (size depending). LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs. NOTE: Once I find a family, I will be on the first available flight out of the Middle East seeing as I need to leave here ASAP! If a direct flight to Vancouver is not immediately available, the cost to fly me via unaccompanied cargo from Montreal/Toronto to Vancouver will not be optional. If you would like to increase the chance of me coming sooner, my rescuer may be able to secure a cargo flight from the Middle East. This cost will likely be between $1200-3800 USD, dependent on size.

I am in WA and available to WA or Canadian adopters. COPPER Breed: Hound/Shephard (Podenco mix) Age: 8 months Gender: M, neutered Wgt/Hgt: 58 lb Energy level: Moderate-high Relations: good with dogs, but not in own home / unknown cats & kids Highlights: loves exploring, enjoys petting, resource guarding, smart, anxiety (prozac is helping) Region: Middle East, now in WA I was in WA being fostered when I came to the US in June. I was adopted out in Aug to Canada, but it was quickly apparent I am not a fit in that home, as I need more adjustment time and help with integrating than the short time I have been with them and I need people with a greater experience level. So I am back with my foster in WA and need a new home. I will need some time & space to learn to trust you. Here I am being a silly boy, https://youtu.be/c17HKDD0djw. Other dogs are a joy to me and I am playful and friendly with them. I do tend to resource guard though, my people, toys, etc... So, better to be in a single dog home and visit the park and such for play. I have started on some prozac to help with anxieties connected with all the changes. It seems to be helping. Stimulation needs to be toned down until I am more comfortable. I can get a bit frustrated when too many changes happen too fast. I will need an experienced person to help me overcome my trepidation and learn to trust people better. If another dog comes to you though, I will trust you more readily. I am a really smart boy who is a quick learner. I am liking this new PNW environment. I love the lakes and streams, water is fun. The US or Canada is just the place for a guy like me to learn to build confidence. It would be good if my adopter was around a lot to help me in the beginning. Never been around kitties yet, so unknown of my feelings towards them. Given my nervousness right now, it would be best to be in a child free home. I have a goodly amount ofvenergy, so itvwoukd be great if you are active. Not much is known about my life while I was in the Middle East. My rescuer saw a car stop and a plastic bag was tossed out. Something was moving in the plastic bag that caught her attention. She stopped and cut the bag open and found there was a live puppy in the plastic bag, me. View my vid on this. The tip of my ears and tail were cut off. How horrific that people would do such a thing. So, my rescuer took me home and the rest is history. Now, I want to make new memories. Let share some together, ok? I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver. I will be brought up to the border for curbside transfer.

Hi there! My name is DAL and here is some info about me: PHYSICAL INFO: Breed Border Collie Mix Age 9 years old Gender Male Weight 26 lbs or 12 kg Height 13 inches high RESCUE STORY: Dal was found living as a stray in makeshift house made of boards and covered with rags.  The only care he received was being fed leftover food and water by neighbours.  Fortunately he was rescued by some awesome people and is now ready for his forever home.

ENERGY LEVEL: Dal has low energy levels [Description] GETS ALONG WITH: Kids Yes, very calm dog Dogs – Yes, he tensed up a it when a dog first approached, but remained calm when he was sniffed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7o6ckpFAqM&list=PLIsLTtIpe3Jz0wEU2eW95_cg8ttXh9czC&index=2 He approached the cranky little dog to sniff, but backed right off when she rejected him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUHJOV_VJ90&list=PLIsLTtIpe3Jz0wEU2eW95_cg8ttXh9czC&index=3 Dal is a rather quiet and calm boy that does not like high energy, he may be uncomfortable among high energy dogs, but usually avoids conflict the best he can. Cats -yes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ydx4OPj9jIQ&list=PLIsLTtIpe3Jz0wEU2eW95_cg8ttXh9czC&index=4 PREY DRIVE: Unknown but did not express much interest in a cat FEARS: When first rescued, Dal showed high wariness towards people.  With a stranger, he may at first tense up and try to evade, but will remain calm if approached.  Treats are great to bring him out of his shell and he may smile at you if you have treats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NgspPJnvjA&list=PLIsLTtIpe3Jz0wEU2eW95_cg8ttXh9czC&index=1 TRAINING: Leash skills – Dal follows his handlers lead very well.  He remains calm next to loud traffic.  He can be recalled well from off leash in a secure enviroment once a very strong bond has formed.

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 and should begin within a day or two of arrival. After your dog has settled in, check out 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.  HEALTH NOTES: I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. ADOPTION FEE: My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. ------------------------------------- Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

UPDATE: I am a little guy with some healing left to do. I have been so ill-treated in past years, I have learned how to try to defend myself by growling and biting as a way to prevent further abuse. I need a loving and patient adopter to believe in me and to give me the time, space, and affection that I need to recover. In return, I will give you my forever love. I would ask that I be in a home with no cats and, if there are dogs, they need to be kind to me and respect my differences. If you think you can support me while I build my trust in humans, I will be your loyal and loving buddy.  DANI *Experienced Owners Only* Breed: Pom/ Spaniel mix Age: 2 years Gender: male, neutered Wgt/Hgt: 11 lbs / 11 inches Energy level: low Relations: ok with dogs, no kids, unknown with cats Highlights: travels well, likes to have his own space, walks well on leash Region: Middle East My name is Dani, I’m a small bundle with a big history filled with pain. I was rescued from someone who was abusing me. I needed surgery on my back and left leg and I’ve been told I might have been hit by a car, or maybe it was the person who was hurting me….they can’t be 100% sure. All I was told was that I need to get out of there ASAP. I’m healed now but I do have nerve damage. My rescuer in the Middle East sent me to a foster home in Toronto, which is where I have been for the last two months.  I’m very cute, obviously BUT here’s the catch, I’m grumpy. I’m grumpy mostly because I’m in pain, but also because it's hard for me to trust humans so because of those two things, I need interactions to happen on my terms. Here are some videos of my grumpy-ness: https://youtu.be/ODDBfI-pLyk https://youtu.be/3f6nVojfwgM I like to have my space. I don’t like to be touched while I sleep, or in other words I really don’t like to be caught off guard. It scares me and I react. I’m also protective of my food and toys. When I’m not happy, I give a warning growl. If I’m still not given the space I’m asking for then I will snap at you for not listening to my boundaries. I’m sure you have noticed my long and luscious furrs, well that means I will need consistent grooming. When being groomed I definitely need to have my muzzle on because...grumps city over here! My current foster mama has been working with me and I’ve made a lot of progress. She puts a muzzle on me to practice safe interactions and it works well because it keeps everyone safe. With respect to my sore legs and back, I’m on a medication called Pregabalin, I take 50 mg per day. I’m in pain but I can walk and run, I just can’t jump or go for very long adventures. The vet said I shouldn't do a lot of stairs, so I'm hoping to find a home with minimal stairs. That being said, I do love being outside and having fun, I just get tired easily.  I’m hoping to find a forever home with someone who is experienced with reactive dogs, someone who is kind and patient and willing to give me a new chance at life. Please help me live my best life. Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

I would probably do best with another dog/dogs in the home as well as a yard. DODIE You will find me an incredibly sweet-natured and calm dog. I am a Spitz mix, 1-1/2 yrs old. I stand 16 inches at the shoulder and weigh 20 lbs. It is unknown what originally happened to me. My back legs are paralyzed, but I have an awesome wheelchair that I LOVE to zip around in, especially outside. I'm a great walking companion and my foster is still figuring out my limits. Currently, I take two 30 min walks a day. This seems ideal until I can build up a bit more strength then I'm sure I'd like to do more. I walk at a great pace and sometimes get a little zoomie energy and like to have a bit of a run! Otherwise, I like to take time to sniff the flowers look up at the birds flying overhead. If I get a little distracted, a little bit of a push is all I need to continue. I do like to nap a lot during the day, I have a green frog toy that is my favourite thing, and I will cuddle up with him to go to sleep in my 'play pen' at night. I LOVE snuggling on the sofa and will ask you to scratch my ears as I can't quite do it myself. I might benefit from having a dog companion to play with and help me gain some confidence. I am in the process of learning dog-meeting manners when out on a walk. I sometimes get overexuberant and might even growl if I'm not sure of the situation. I've never been around cats so can't say how I'd feel about them. Kids would probably be fun if they were old enough to know how to treat me well. I am extremely adaptable and very trusting off the bat, which is rare in a dog that has been through so much. My past is a mystery, but spending some time in Canada has already opened up my world despite a few initial medical ailments and having to wear a dreaded cone!! Please note my adorable face and sometimes when I stretch, I'll snort a bit like a pig. Yup, I'm really quite the character. Ok, I do sometimes snore but it is the cutest thing ever. And I am learning about toys and how much fun they are: https://youtu.be/-KBzykd_RF0. My two main ways of moving myself around, (and I must say I'm pretty darn good at it!) is either dragging on my side/hip or pulling myself forwards in a sort of 'hopping' motion with my legs behind me. I can get some serious speed this way! I also have a drag bag but I spend my time in my diaper shuffling around. It would be best if I had a yard or at least some safe space/grass to maneuver outside out of my wheelchair too as I am able to toilet independently when in motion. My foster currently helps me to toilet a few times a day to avoid accidents as I am incontinent (with my bowels) and need help to pee. My levels of incontince and abilities are still being figured out with the help of my foster and my vet. Since arriving in Canada from the Middle East and experiencing a whole new country, new people, new surroundings AND new language - I am learning basic obedience comands like "come!" and I also seem to understand my name "Dodie" when called. My foster has created a short handbook about my care, with hopes that it'll answer every question you may have about me and my unique needs. She thinks I'm so special and have SO much love to give. I will soon be spayed/neutered, but am currently vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $650.00 CAD + applicable taxes.

Please note additional fees further below that may apply to get me to Vancouver. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Donegal (Damoon) Breed: Lab/Husky/Shepard (Estrela Mtn Dog) Age: 1-1/2 years Gender: m, neutered Wgt/Hgt: 66 lbs / 25-1/2 inches Energy level: moderate Relations: good w/ dogs, ok w/ cats, unknown kids Highlights: Relaxed, gentlemanly attitude, kind disposition, playful Looking to keep you moving down the middle of the road with your sights set on my awesomeness. I am an absolute gentleman, who is quite kind hearted. I can be nervous at first, meeting new people is scary some times, but with some time, love and treats I will become your new best friend. Me and my siblings (Denali & Domino) were found in the street when we were young puppies. Our mama died of an infection, so our rescuer made sure we would be safe. We are with our rescuer's mother right now, but can only stay a limited time. We will have to go to a shelter soon, if we don't find homes. There is a kitty in our current home, so I'm are fine with a feline. Although I haven't been around many children yet, I am young still, so capable of learning to live with them. I love my doggo friends, but living with so many makes me feel the need to protect my food and because of this I'd prefer to be in a home without any other doggos.  It would be nice to be able to go out and play like normal puppies, but sadly it isn't safe here in our country for us to do that. Hence why I am only now learning about a leash before my hopeful voyage to Canada. https://youtu.be/fMAshb0DN20.  A moderate to chilled out home would be mighty fine with me. Being a youngster, I like to romp around, but I really enjoy just hangin' out and getting belly scratches, chomping on a toy & watching things around me. You know, the suave, sophisticated, observant James Bond type. Wink. So, what do you want to do first? Go to the beach? Snowshoeing? Maybe we could go for a nice country drive and take in the sights... well, the smells for me. Maybe a relaxing hike into the woods or maybe we could just take a snooze together watching a movie. Whatever it is, I can't wait to do it with you. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $750.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada. Please note: Due to current travel restrictions there may be a long delay before I can get to you. Please only apply for me if you are willing to wait. Due to the ever-changing extenuating circumstances brought on by the Global Pandemic, we are struggling to transport dogs to Canada. Please note that additional fees may apply (beyond the adoption fee) in order to get your dog to you. LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs and will ask for your approval BEFORE any travel arrangements are made, so that you may opt in, if you choose. The following are some examples of potential additional costs, though there are numerous variables, so these are estimates. USA/Canada border transfer (via a Brokerage Company): $470 for 1 dog, $275/dog if 2 dogs are transported at the same time. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada: $250-$500 per dog Unaccompanied Cargo costs overseas: $1,500-$3,000 per dog Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Hi there! My name is DOZZER (Dani) and here is some info about me: Breed: Australian Shepard / Saluki mix Age: 9 mo (122520) Gender: m, neutered Weight: 20 kg Height: 65 cm Found with my brother & sister (Shooka and Asal) in the Middle East, our initial owner couldn't keep us. They wanted to euthanize us, but luckily we were saved just in time by a rescuer. Although I get along with all dogs, I really like small dogs in particular to play with. I tend to be my sister's protectors, in that I will sit close to them so they feel safe. Sometimes I feel kind of left out when its girl's time out to play. I'm really good about sharing my bone with my sister(s.) Yah, I'm a good brother. I like people a lot and enjoy hanging around them getting pets. I find kids are pretty cool too. Energy Level: Moderate Get along with: Dogs, yes Cats, unknown Kids, yes Prey drive: unknown, not observed with cats, squirrels, rabbits, etc... My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown, none observed Training: none Leash skills, none. Will need patient training. House trained, no.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Greetings! My name is EWOK and here is some info about me: I am part of a bonded pair with VIGO Breed: Tibetan Terrier mix Age: 3-1/2 yrs Gender: Fe Weight: 9 kg Height: 38 cm Rescued along with other small dogs from a zoo in a Middle East city in February 2020, I spent days and nights in cages like the other wild animals in the cold & heat. I was left hungry, thirsty and scared. I was abused and beaten and my rescuers do not know if I was left at the zoo or if I was born there, so nobody knows how long I may have been there. After being rescued, I was taken with the other tormented dogs to be cleaned and checked. Then I was sent in to a major city for medical work. I currently reside in a boarding facility: https://youtu.be/VkClOv_KMp0. I am very dependent on a dog named Vigo. Best guess is that Vigo is my son. Though we have spent many months at the facility, we are still fairly interdependent. I am very distrustful of humans, can you blame me? I used to strongly resist walking with a collar. But check out my new vid... breakthrough... I'm out walking on a leash. These days, when Vigo goes for a walk, I get close and enthused. But as soon as you try to connect my leash to my collar, I run into a crate, as I revert to the lack of freedom I had before... habit to overcome. But once out walking, I am learning it is ok. They keep me together with Vigo, so I don't get spooked. I am afraid due to the cruelty inflicted by humans, so can bite when I feel insecure and scared (see vid where I grab the chain). I will not bite until you try to get close to me by force and I feel threatened. I actually will now approach people I trust, to include taking treats and even allow a bit of cuddling. If a stranger approaches though, I will hide. That is where Vigo came in, to be my blockade. Though I have become a little more independent of him, I still rely on him for safety. I just need love and trust built up which will take a little time. A patient and willing adopter who can help me rehab through all my past terrors would be super. Additional vids of me: https://youtu.be/b9cAMyxbgiI https://youtu.be/Zzl3lWvCIcY https://youtu.be/hMA5o33AXFI https://youtu.be/5qrmH-BdvgM https://youtu.be/_PqXtrxV5IA Energy Level: moderate Get along with: Dogs, yes. Very good, but may involve dogs that are aggressive or show teeth. ??? Cats, unknown Kids, unknown Prey drive: unknown, not observed with cats, squirrels, rabbits, etc... My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. When there is food somewhere and another dog does not go to it, I will quickly go to it and eat it myself. Usually though, I am always following Vigo, so am paying full attention to him and don't look for anything else. Fears: Distrust of strangers, man or woman, no difference. Getting better, need time. Training: none Leash skills, learning to walk with a leash and a collar. Will need patient training. House trained, no. Please be prepared to help me learn! 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!

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. Health notes: I had a kidney problem that was caused by taking the wrong medicine. A recent test shows that it has healed. My liver enzymes are high and so I am temporarily taking pills for it. As soon as my liver enzymes return to normal, the medication will be stopped.  I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped.

Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Hi there! My name is Farah and here is some info about me: Breed: Spitz/Corgi Age: 4 years old Gender: Female Weight: 8 lbs Height: tbd I have a sad story to start off, but I survived and here I am happy and healthy and excited to start a new life in Canada. I was found in an auto repair shop filled with fleas and ticks. I was tight in a corner of the shop with no attention. Sometimes I was getting some food. I could not move around at all because my rope was really short and it was even hard for me to completely lay down. My right eye was in a very bad condition (reason is unknown) and when my rescuer found me, took me to the hospital, but doctors could not save it. With all the crazy things that happened to me, I am a happy girl. All I need is your love and attention. I love going out for walk and meeting new dogs and kids and playing with them. Looove off leash parks where I can run around and feel free again.  I am affectionate and cuddly, though sometimes shy, lovely girl.  My energy level is moderate. Get along with: Dogs, yes Cats, unknown Kids, yes Prey drive: unknown, not observed with cats, squirrels, rabbits, etc... My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown, none observed TRAINING: Leash skills: Yes I have! House trained – Yes some training, but please be prepared to help me learn the right places in my new home! 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 and should begin within a few days after arrival. After your dog has settled in, check out 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. HEALTH NOTES: I am blind in my right eye. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $700.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. Due to ongoing limits on Vancouver (YVR) flights, additional fees will apply if I have to fly through another city. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada range from $275-$500 per dog (size depending). LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs. NOTE: once I find a family, I will be on the first available flight out of the Middle East seeing as I need to leave here ASAP! If a direct flight to Vancouver is not immediately available, the cost to fly me via unaccompanied cargo from Montreal/Toronto to Vancouver will not be optional. If you would like to increase the chance of your dog coming sooner, the rescuer may be able to secure a cargo flight from the Middle East. This cost will likely be between $1200-3800 USD, dependent on size.

I will be flying into Montreal if I am adopted, so there will be a cargo fee from there to Vancouver. See info further below. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore this dog is only available to Canadian residents. FERRARI  (Fido) Vroom, vroom... screeeech. Thazz me peeling out and racing off. Ready for our hike or run or beach romp or well... whatever you wanna do. Let's do something though, no sense sitting around. I'm a 2 year old, male, Terrier mix. Weighing in at a whopping 15 lbs and standing nearly 10 inches tall, I am the epitome of a little race car. Ok, a Match Box car maybe, but still... My rescuers bought me from the hands of a homeless drug user on the streets in the Middle East. I was in poor shape; full of fleas, dirty, hungry and just overall miserable. My rescuers took me to the shelter and my life has changed dramatically. Alright, I know I don't look like much with my fur shaved down. But it'll grow back. They shave us to keep cool. I now enjoy every moment, because I was saved from the hell of my abuser. I don't hold anything against you hoomans though. I just love people. Men, women, I play no favorites. I'm happy just having them around. I get so excited when I see the staff or vistors coming, I start running around to show my happiness. Speed. I am speed. I don't need a race track though. As you can tell, I have a goodly level of energy, high energy pup ready for fun times. Heck, they needed to hold me to get some photos, cuz I am always on the move. Vroom. Quite friendly with other dogs, I enjoy playtime. I am not overbearing with my attitude though, I respect other dogs space if they don't want to be bothered. Cats? No idea, but given my level of energy, it is likely I may want to play chase. I'm good with kids as well. They give good lovings. Revving my motor, so I can be on my way to Canada soon. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver. Due to ongoing limits on Vancouver flights yet, additional fees will apply if flying from another city. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada: $275-$500 per dog. LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs. I will be on the first available flight, as I need to leave the Middle East as soon as possible.

FOXY - pending adoption

Labrador Retriever

A flight volunteer has already been found for me - woo-hoo!  I will be flying from Delhi to Vancouver on October 18th. Will you be there to bring me home? My name is Foxy and here's some important information about me: Breed: Indie mix/Retriever (a typical mixed breed from India. Adults usually weigh about 30 - 40lb. I'm on the smaller end of this range.) Age: almost one  Gender: female Weight: 12kg/26lb  (I'm on the skinny side right now.) Height: 50cm/20in Good with: dogs, kids. (Cats: unknown) Like many dogs here in India, I was born on the streets and had to deal with the dangers of that life. At only 3 months of age I was brutally beaten and left with a shattered hip.  Thankfully a good samaritan came to my rescue and I was taken to a vet for surgery. I was given a femoral head ostectomy (FMO) in January 2021. This is a surgical procedure that aims to restore pain-free mobility to the hip in cases where it has been damaged due to trauma or disease.   Once the damaged head and neck of the femur are removed, the natural formation of scar tissue provides a 'false joint' that allows for pain-free movement. It works particularly well in healthy, active dogs like me and I'm now fully healed and ready for adoption - woo-hoo! That back leg is a little shorter than my other legs now, but I can put my full weight on it and run and jump as I please.  I've been lucky enough to spend the past 8 months in a foster home so I've become very well socialised and I just love being around people, as well as other dogs.  I'm also house trained and comfortable in a crate so it won't be so scary for me when I have to be in one for the long flight.  My foster mom says I am a very happy, affectionate dog who is friendly with everyone, including kids and strangers.  You can probably see in my videos and photos that I've still got that puppy playfulness in my nature, and I love to snuggle up with my people too!  There's a German Shepherd in my foster home and I really love curling up beside him to snooze after I'm tired from one of our play sessions. Since I get along well with other dogs I would be happy if there's another canine playmate in the home, but if not, I'm sure you could find a local dog park for us to explore. (Cats are not creatures I'm familiar with so I can't tell you how I would react around them). My energy level is probably best described as average for my young age. I love going for walks, playing with my friends, and occasionally getting 'the zoomies'. But I'm also quite good at entertaining myself with my toys and taking regular naps. If you're looking for a loveable, social dog who can join your family very soon, then please fill out the adoption application right away. I'll be in Canada in no time!   I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee of $750 + tax includes my airfare to Vancouver.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Hi there, my name is GIGGLY and here is some info about me: Breed: Border Collie /Saluki mix Age: 8 months Gender: m, neutered Weight: 18 kg Height: 50 cm Tossed out of a moving car in the Middle East when I was only two months old, a good Samaritan called the shelter and told the owner to go and find me in the bushes on the freeway. They literally had to go and search around where I was tossed to find me. I don’t appear very traumatized by the situation, thankfully. I am a very affectionate and happy dog. Since I am very playful, or would be great  to be adopted into a family with other dogs or a family that can take me to a dog park to interact with other dogs. I love to play and jump around a lot. I get along very well with humans and other dogs. The staff named me Giggly. I always make everyone laugh, because I have so much energy and I do the funniest things at the shelter. Because I am in a shelter environment, there is no way to know about cats, but because of my high energy levels, the staff doesn’t think it would be a good idea for me to be around cats, as I might chase them. It's hard to tell if I am much of a barker, because of the shelter environment. I tend to get riled up when the other dogs bark around me. I think away from a multi-dog environment and with a bit of training though, it wouldn't be an issue. I love my food and gobble up every last bit as soon as I can. Energy Level: high Get along with: Dogs, yes Cats, unknown, though recommendation is no Kids, unknown, though my rescuer states yes, no video proof available yet Prey drive: unknown, not observed with cats, squirrels, rabbits, etc... As far as currently known, I get along with all animals. Even small ones. But due to being in a shelter, there is no way to know how he would react to squirrels or rabbits. It is important that my adopter be willing to train me, just in case I react towards small animals. So far I get along with everyone I meet. Fears: I can sometimes be fearful of strangers. My reaction is that I am just timid and shy and don’t come around that much. But this can easily be worked on with proper intro and socialization. Training: none Leash skills, none. Will need patient training. House trained, no. Please be prepared to help me learn! 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!

GOLDENBOY (Middle East) mm Breed: Feline DSH Age: 2 years Gender: male / neutered Wgt /Hgt:  10 lbs  Energy level: Moderate Relations: good with other cats but it does take time, best to be in home with no other pets / Dogs and kids unknown Highlights: blind 2 eyes, shy, calm  Regions: Middle East I was left with two blind eyes in a forest park. Many animals such as dogs and foxes also live in this park, so I was very lucky to be saved from this situation. My throat was sore for unknown reasons and it made me not even make a sound. Maybe that kept me from being found by other hungry animals. Because I could not find food, I was very thin when the rescuers found me. I had some sort of injury too. I was treated and my eyes had an ultrasound. The doctor said my retinas are healthy, but I probably lost my sight due some sort of an impact.  So, I'm a blind kitty. I get around pretty good though. I could probably catch those 3 blind mice. Heehee. I'm quite healthy otherwise. It takes me a little time to make new friends with other cats, but I can. Never been with dogs or children though. I'd like a safe place to land coming to Canada. My gingery golden coat will shine beautifully in the light streaming into your window, along with my glowing personality of course. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $250.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.  show less

GORGI Breed: Labrador Retriever/Shepherd mix Age: 1-1/2 years Gender: female , spayed Wgt /Hgt: 71 lbs/ 29 inches Energy level: moderate to moderate-high Relations: good with dogs & kids / no cats Highlights: social & friendly with dogs, timid with people Region: Middle East  I love playing with other dogs, big or small, bring 'em all. Found on a farm near a major city in the Middle East, people there beat me a lot. I was beaten savagely by humans. This is why I am afraid of people. But, just give me time to learn not all humans are monsters. Being timid, it takes a while for me to learn to trust. My tendency is to distance myself and get away. I will need someone kind, understanding and patient to help me overcome my timidity. Time will be the biggest factor. Perhaps though, if you had another confident doggie in your home already who could help me learn I am safe, it would help. I am not aggressive, just takes me a while to warm up for play. I love playing with other dogs. Despite my past though, I am a kind pup. Along with playing, I love digging. The feel of cool dirt under my paws, aaaw. Don't you like squishing your toes in the mud?  I'm not so thrilled with cats, so best none of those around. I also can be sensitive about my food. So I need to eat alone away from other dogs. Kids are pretty nice in my book. When they give me oats and gentle hugs, I know they care about me. I'm sure once we get to know each other, we'll have a great time hiking around and enjoying each others company basking in the sun or romping through the snow. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes.

Hi, my name is Grace and I am a 3 year old female Jindo mix weighing 37 pounds (17 kg) and standing 18 inches tall.  I was rescued from a deserted island in S Korea where I survived all alone.   The footage of my rescue was actually filmed by one Korean Broadcast Station.  (Yes I am famous, you can find that video here https://youtu.be/xgFChJFtCMg )  I have now been rescued for almost a year during which time I have been socialized and am now ready for my forever home. As I had little to no interactions with people until being rescued, socialization came slowly to me.  I will allow strangers to pet me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVb1uJ3pRKU&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzcXArs9p7FDpM6r9MnN9Mv&index=1 including children https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id7zH4A01XY&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzcXArs9p7FDpM6r9MnN9Mv&index=2 but sometimes my handler thinks I don't enjoy it, I merely tolerate it.  My handler says that if someone tries to touch my back or hip then I back away and don't like people touching my belly or picking me up. As for other dogs, my handler says I appear to have an innate fear towards them.   (understandable as I was the only dog on the island and had it alllllll to myself!) I back off if a group of dogs approach me but will allow one on one.  I don't get aggressive, I try to evade and avoid trouble.  Here is me meeting a couple dogs.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cEzoaNa9JY&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzcXArs9p7FDpM6r9MnN9Mv&index=3.  As for cats, I seem completely uninterested in them, even seeing stray cats on walks.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yY5QKqisoz0&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzcXArs9p7FDpM6r9MnN9Mv&index=4  so I could probably live with cats.   My handler says I have rather low levels of energy, I am very calm aroud the house.  I pick a spot and then rarely move.  However during walks, she says I become drastically happy and cheerful.  I follow along with my handler very well, I have exellent leash manners.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vH3iiAn7cM8&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzcXArs9p7FDpM6r9MnN9Mv&index=8. and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daZSbKGy7Es&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzcXArs9p7FDpM6r9MnN9Mv&index=7 Due to my history of living in the wild for so long it is not recommended to off leash me, I do not recall well.   I have not shown any aggression, nor any resource guarding.  No separation anxiety either.  I rarely bark, I didn't bark at all for an entire month at my foster's house.  I am comfortable in a kennel and love car rides.  I am not food motivated, but if someone approaches me and handfeeds me, then I will eat, boiled chicken breasts are my favourite!  (Also handfeeding is a wonderful way for us to establish a bond) So if you have the home for an independent lovely (and famous!) girl, and will take me for happy walks, apply for me today!

Look no further, I'm yer girl. This here pup has got the personality to win your heart. I am a fiesty puppy born with special legs; a drumstick and chicken wing!  I get around by crawling, but I have had an amputation that will allow me to get a prosthetic!  soon, I'll have an outlet for my zoomies!  When I was found in the mountains abandoned by my mama after birth, I was very weak from malnutrition, but I am healthy now, and loving Canada! I am housetrianed, as long as I don't have to climb a lot of stairs!  You may have to carry me to the back yard until I get my prosthetic I'm super cute, but I do have my quirks.  I'm not a fan of random loud noises, and it takes me a while to trust people I don't know.  Want to know the secret way to my heart? FOOD!  Ok, so maybe that's not a secret, but don't you like people who bring you treats?  I need a parent who is as special as I am!  That's you, right?   I need slow intros to people and dogs, and I'm on some medication to help with my fearfulness. I think I would love a quiet home with a nice backyard away from the scary noises of a city.  I also want to tell you that I have the bestest softest ears, and you need to pet them! :) I have been spayed/neutered  .

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 and should begin within a few days after arrival. After your dog has settled in, check out 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.  HEALTH NOTES: I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. ADOPTION FEE: My adoption fee is $750.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. ------------------------------------- Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.
