Loved at Last Dog Rescue

Langley, BC, Langley, BC, V4W 1M6

Rescue/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.

Update: I am now living in Greater Vancouver in a household with other dogs as well as humans. I just love it here on the west coast!! My skills are coming along beautifully. Even though I had a challenge feeling comfortable with one of the adults in my first home, I am now getting along with everybody in my current foster home!! I am much more confident and my foster mom has taught me so much cool stuff about coming when I'm called, leash skills, and other important dog stuff. Even though I love my foster home, I am also looking forward to being adopted into my forever family with both human and canine members of course. I just love to play with my canine siblings! Given my age and size, I think it's best if there are no young children in my adoptive home.  Hi there! My name is AAVEEN (Avin) and here is some info about me: Breed: Lab mix Age: 1 year Gender: m Weight: 37 lb / 17 kg Height: 25 in / 63 cm HISTORY: 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.

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 everyone. My name is ABIGAIL and here is a little info about me: Breed: Anatolian Shepherd Age: 9 months Gender: female Weight: 20 kg Height: 70 cm Rescued when I was just 10 days old from an addict. He was keeping me in a dark and dingy bathroom. When they saved me, they noticed that one of my legs was broken. No one knows what happened, but they are assuming that it had something to do with the addict that was keeping me. I like to say he was keeping me hostage, because that is what it felt like. My leg unfortunately could not be saved and they had to amputate it. However, that missing a leg has not hindered me from living a normal life. Though the early days of my life were not so bright, I am currently living the sweet life with a wonderful foster family. I am hoping that when I move to Canada, I will be able to get a prosthetic, which will help me run around and play easier. Because I sure like to play! I also enjoy getting cuddles from my human. I absolutely love those! I basically have all the good traits that dogs have and then some! I would make a great addition to any family! I am good with kitties too, that's an added plus. Energy level: moderate I get along with: Dogs: yes Cats: yes Kids: most likely yes, no video proof yet, but I am super sweet and gentle Prey drive: none observed, but adopter needs to be willing to train me should these behaviors arise. Fears: none observed, I have been brought up to have high self-esteem. Training: some, I know my name very well. I also know the word “no”. I’ve got to say though, it’s not my favorite word! Leash training: not so much. Please be prepared to train me. Housetrained: I am housetrained, but I sometimes have accidents inside the house yet. Please help me learn where to go in my new home. Health notes: My front leg is amputated. I have been spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped My adoption fee is 750.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a fight volunteer directly to Vancouver.

This is the application that you should use if you are looking to apply to foster a dog AND ARE NOT planning to adopt.  Foster homes are one of the most important parts of any dog rescue. Without these homes, we wouldn't be able to rescue as many dogs as we do.  Our greatest need is for foster volunteers who have dog experience. We often have foster dogs that require some kind of behavioural training, or have medical needs, so if you have experience in either of these areas please apply now. Fostering is agreeing to take a dog into your home, temporarily, while the rescue is receiving and reviewing applications for adoption.   What does it cost? As a foster home, we can provide you with food, collar, leash. We will also cover any vet bills, but please speak to your foster coordinator before taking the dog to the vet unless its an emergency What if I can only foster a small dog? We will work with the limitations of our foster homes. If you are asked to foster a dog that is too big, please just let us know and we will look for another home. We are always looking for foster homes that can accomodate big dogs. What if I only want to foster a puppy? Puppies are usually very easy to adopt and often don't need fostering. Please consider an older dog that could be even more fun! What if I want to adopt? If your intent is to adopt a dog, you will need to submit an adoption application for review.  I only want to foster a specific dog. If you want a specific dog and only that dog, we recommend that you apply to adopt. International dogs are not normally available for fostering as we try to only bring them here if an approved adopter has been found. We really need more experienced foster homes and appreciate you reading this posting. I hope that you consider opening your heart and your home to help a dog in need. The love and care that you can provide for even a short period, will make a huge difference in the life of a dog. Regards Foster Team foster1.laldr@gmail.com Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Hi there! My name is Alfie and I moved to Canada on May 18th, currently living at my great foster in Vancouver and here is some info about me: Breed: Dutch/Lab mix Age: 8 months Gender: Male Weight: 27 kg  Hello lovely humans, I’m here to tell you more about me. I was born in a small Middle East. I remember when I was only weeks old, someone came and took me and my other siblings from my mom. I remember it was really difficult for us and we were all crying because we wanted our mommy. I remember that horrible person had cut out our ears and it was blood everywhere. 2 of my siblings died from bleeding and weakness. One day I tried to escape but then I was attacked by a motorcycle and my right leg got broken really bad. Someone on the neighborhood called authorities to come and take me and kill me but there was this nice lady who you can also see on my vid saved my life. It was like a miracle, and I never forget her kindness. She then called a rescue group to come and help me. A kindhearted person came and took me to hospital for surgery. It took my couple of months to feel much better but now I am fully recovered and in Vancouver, can't wait to explore all the fun stuff.  I am a boy with full of energy. I love all humans but sometimes afraid of some men, slow introductions would be great. Now that I am in Vancouver, my amazing foster takes me to parks and I do really great with other dogs the only thing is I sometimes feel overwhelmed with couple of dogs come close to me, still trying to settle to new environment cause where I used to be I never could go to park and meet other dogs, I was always locked up in a room at shelter so I need some time to adjust to my current amazing life!  I am open to training and love to learn all the tricks you can teach me. I am not house trained obviously since I never lived in a home but my foster is really happy about me showing and going toward door when I need to do business :)  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. I have been, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. Due to my age, I will be spayed once I'm with my family in vancouver.  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.Information included in the profile is provided to us from the international rescuer or local fosters.

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. Hiya there. My name is ALICIA and here is a little info about me: Breed: Golden Retriever/German Shepard mix Age: 4 (4.5) yrs Gender: female Weight: 31 kgs Height: 65 cm A rescue team in the Middle East received a call about a 3 legged dog running around a vet clinic with other dogs were bullying her. That dog was me. People were feeding us, but I could not get food, because the other dogs were chasing me away. The people reported that I would not be able to survive due to the harassment from the other dogs. So the rescue team went out and picked me up. I have been at the shelter for 3 years now. It is time I find my rightful home. One of my rear legs is missing around the knee. I can stand and sit on my hip, so t ht e vet did not want to amputate further up. An absolute angel girl the shelter calls me. I am very friendly. They say sweet as candy. My temperament is calm, quiet and happy. I am very nice with other dogs and enjoy being around people's kids/families that visit the shelter. I do not shiw any behavioral issues whatsoever, despite whatever happened to me and my time on the streets. It seems I may have had training or a home before, as I am quite well behaved. I would love to live the rest of my life as the queen of the house. Big smile. I still enjoy activity, but would love the hours snuggling too. Energy Level: moderate to moderate-low I get along with: Dogs: yes Cats: unknown Kids: yes Prey drive: unknown/not observed. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown/none observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition. Training: none Leash skills: no.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. I have been waiting to get adopted for over 2 years now :( Name: Amy (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. https://youtu.be/L8J0I1YZVak  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 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. The following are some examples of possible, non refundable, additional costs (note, these are estimates only and are subject to change): 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: $275-$475 per dog Unaccompanied Cargo costs overseas: $1,500-$3,700 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.

Breed: German Shepherd mix Age: 2 yr Gender: fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 55 lbs / 22 inches Energy level: moderate Relations: great with dogs once comfortable with them, good with kids, not good with cats  Highlites: playful, tripaw, joyful, very affectionate, independent Hi everyone, my name is Annie Oakley. I am a beautiful and very happy girl, but that hasn't always been true for me. I used to live in the Middle East where at the very tender age of eight months I became pregnant. I was much too young to become a mother and all my puppies died. In addition my rear leg had been badly damaged, probably from being hit by a car. In the country I come from, dogs are considered vermin and people often deliberately hit us with their cars in an attempt to kill us. The wounds became badly infected and I was in terrible pain by the time I was finally rescued. The vet I was taken to wasn't able to save my leg and it had to be amputated. Despite this I am very mobile and can easily climb stairs. I can't go on long hikes but normal length walks are perfect for me.  I am a very loving and affectionate girl who has a real love of life. I enjoy the company of other dogs once I trust them and currently live happily with several dogs of all sizes. However, it takes me a few visits for me to feel safe with other dogs. So it is difficult for a potential adopter to take the time I need to get me familiar with their dog. So a home without another dog is best for me. I am happy being the only dog in the home as my true love is people. I have the cutest habit of splaying my front legs out wide when I want you to play with me. And if you pet me and stop and I want some more, I will wrap my front legs around yours to trap you and keep you with me. Adorable, right?  I am a really easy dog to care for, and to love. I very much enjoy being outside so a fenced yard is important to me. Because of my distrust of dogs I don't know, I am reactive to other dogs when walked on leash, so it would be best if I was walked where I won't run into a lot unfamiliar dogs.  A trainer who has worked with me is confident that the more exposure to unfamiliar dogs I get, the more relaxed I will be with them. Unfortunately my foster mom isn't able to give me that exposure as she lives with several dogs on five fenced acres which is where we do our walking and exploring. The good part is that even though I am reactive on walks towards unfamiliar dogs, I can't pull hard on the leash due to my missing rear leg so I am easy to control.  While I am a joyful soul, I am not at all hyper or high energy. At home, I am very calm and relaxed. My favourite thing to do is lie on my bed, chewing on a marrow bone or a chew stick. There is no way you could be unhappy with me around.  I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $700 plus applicable taxes* 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

ARAM (Middle East, mm) Special Girl

Please, please don’t pass me by, because it says “special needs”.  I am so much more than that.  After reading my story, you will see what a brave little pup I am. My name is Aram and here is some information about me:  Breed: Tibetan/Chihuahua mix Age: 7 years old Gender: Female Weight: 10 lbs Like many female dogs in the Middle East, I was used for breeding.  When I became too old to have puppies, my horrible owner put me in a stable with horses.  I am such a tiny dog and those horses were so big, it was very frightening. My worst fears came true when, one day, I was accidentally kicked by a horse. It left me with an injured spine  and my back legs would not work. That horrible man took me to the vet, but would not pay for my treatment. Luckily the vet refused to let me go. My amazing rescuer heard about my story, paid for my treatment and brought me home to live with her. She has looked after me so well, but she is busy looking after 200 dogs at her shelter, so I need to find a forever family to care for me. The name ‘Aram’ means calm in my local language, and that totally describes me. I feel so lucky to be alive; I appreciate everything. Even though I have been through terrible things, I remain full of joy and happiness. I love being with hoomans and enjoy playing with my doggie pals.  Although I can’t use my back legs, I am otherwise healthy. The best home for me would be one with a loving family, who has time to help me. If you have a small, gentle dog, I know we would be best friends.This is not necessary; I am perfectly fine having all the attention lavished on me. Not sure about cats or kids though. Sadly, I have never had a chance to meet them. I know my needs are more than other dogs, but I will give you love, love, love if you bring me home.  I hear that Canada is a great place for dogs. Perhaps you will give this precious little soul a chance. Energy level: moderate  Gets along with: Dogs: yes Cats: unknown Kids: Yes and vids to come. Prey drive: Unknown, adopter needs to be willing to trade me should these behaviors arise Fears: None observed. Despite eveything that happened to me a happy girl who loves to be around all humans!  Training: I am house trained however due to my condition I need your help to put me on my potty location Health notes: I am paralyzed. I have been not been neutered but I am vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $650 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a fight 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.

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 guys! I am Ariana!  I'm a happy, friendly pup with incredible eyes and gentle with everyone!  Since I'm young, I would love to have a human or doggy sibling!  I have two doggie friends, and a toddler at my foster home, and we all have so much fun together! Playing, eating and napping are the best I may only have two legs, but don't be folled, I'm very swift when I want to be!  I have a drag bag to protect my rear from getting hurt on the ground, and brand new blue wheels to zoom around on walks!  At home, I will be your BFF!  If you've always wanted a little shaddow, look no further!  Come meet me soon! Breed: Husky Age: Just over 1 year Gender: Female, spayed Weight: 17 kg Height: 50 cm UPDATE: I am now in Canada and what a lively personality I have:  https://youtu.be/AIcjFrQMZhs. I am so full of joy, I will bring you laughter and amusement daily. Found writhing and whining in pain by a good Samaritan who works at a shelter in the streets of a major city in the Middle East. He and his friend took me to a pet hospital immediately. They decided that I needed to have spinal surgery to ease the pain. I am currently fully recovered. Surely you are looking for a good-natured, talkative, friendly goofball like me. I really hope you will consider having me joining your family. I would make a great addition to any home. See, even good with kids https://youtu.be/TaMqG72rFcc. And I can even hold my own playing with other dogs: https://youtu.be/2Dy2Qz8s6vo.  I recently had to have my legs amputated https://youtu.be/dni9EDQwr3E. Don't worry, it hasn't changed my lovely attitude. A new video of me cart racing. LOL. https://youtu.be/9QYwmXpsZwM. I am good with: dogs: yes cats: yes kids: yes Energy level: moderate 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: none observed.  She is a very well-ajusted puppy Training: working on basic commands Leash training: in progress. Housetrained: yes,  I will let you know when I need to go by vocalizing it. I will need a wheelchair to be able to move around though. I may have a few accidents in my new home until I am used to your schedule, but I try hard not to slip up. 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 week or so AFTER arrival. Check out courses in your local area and enroll 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: As mentioned above, I recently had surgery to remove an intestinal blockage. I am recovering well. My rear legs have been amputated. I have been vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is 650.00 CAD. 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 regulations introduced 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. Hiya folks. My name is ARLEN and here is a little info about me: Breed: Anatolian Shepherd mix Age: 2-1/2 years Gender: male Weight: 30 kg Height: 60 cm Aren’t I just lovely? My beautiful eyes say it all. They show the love within me. A sweet lady at a local park in the Middle East found me. I was being tormented by the local kids there. She found me with a bleeding ear, because they had thrown so many rocks at me. She took me to a shelter she knew of and they thankfully accepted me, even though they were overflowing with dogs. I am currently living at that shelter along with 200 other dogs! It’s getting too crowded here if you ask me! However where I am right now is better than my previous living situation. I get along well with other dogs, but I don’t usually feel like playing with them. I mostly like to snuggle in a corner at the shelter. Hopefully I can continue to do that in Canada, but on a couch close to the fire... and close to you! I am very friendly and love to get cuddles and pets from humans. I hear there are plenty of those in Canada! I can’t wait to become a Canadian. Please help my dream come true! Energy level: low to moderate I get along with: Dogs: yes Cats: unknown Kids: unknown. I can’t imagine having any problems with them though, because I am very gentle. Prey drive: unknown/none observed. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should these behaviors arise. Fears: unknown/none observed. I am not afraid of much, but I can be a little shy at first before I get to know you. I will need to adjust to my new environment upon arrival. Training: none Leash training: none, Please be prepared to train me. Housetrained: no. Please be prepared to help me learn! Health notes:  I have been vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. My adoption fee is 800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a fight volunteer directly to Vancouver.

Unfortunately, due to regulations introduced 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 Arlo AKA “Da Dream Boy”” and here is some info about me: PHYSICAL INFO: • Breed: German shepherd cross • Age: 1 year old • Gender: male • Weight: 44 lbs • Height : tbd RESCUE STORY: I am an absolutely happy, go lucky, bundle of joy from the streets of the Middle East. My rescue mom found me when I was only a couple of months old. I was all alone, scared and apparently my body was covered with mange! My rescue mom brought me to the shelter where I now live with my many furry friends. When my rescue mom found me, I was very malnourished and frail. It didn’t take very long for me to get my strength back though. I was one of the lucky ones to be rescued and I am so grateful for that. Wait  till you see me now, I have the most beautiful, soft coat ever! What mange?!! Here are some adjectives my rescue mom uses to describe me: Kind, loving, sensitive, lover not a fighter, goofball, funny, clumsy… I love to run around and play but most of all, I love my humans. My favorite thing to do is to cuddle and hang out with my family after a nice walk or run in the park. Living in an overcrowded shelter, we are all confined to a tiny area. Would you believe it if I told you that my paws have never touched grass before or I have never dipped my paws in water! I have also never had a doggie toy, I am so looking forward to having some toys one day. I get along with dogs, cats and of course people. I am so gentle that I even let the cats in my shelter steal my food from my bowl! Easily intrigued by little things in life, I am the type of boy that would like to observe and take it all in. I will be the type of dog that would stop and smell the roses, I have heard they are beautiful and also smell pretty. I am also a very smart boy. My rescue mom has been teaching me how to walk on leash. I love to impress and if doing tricks is what it takes, I am ready to learn all the tricks in the world. Given how young I am, I need a family who has the time to take me for regular walks and spends time playing with me, oh how fun that would be! As much as I love my rescue mom, it is time for me to find my forever family so that my rescue mom can help other puppies like me. If you are looking for a kind and devoted lifetime companion, who will love you unconditionally and bring you lots of joy and laughter, you will definitely not be disappointed. It is time for me to fly from the nest and find my place in the world, hopefully with you. It's been said I am the sweetest, goofiest boy ever. How about I brighten your day with love and bring you laughter too? TEMPERMENT • Very cuddly and affectionate. I am known as the goofy boy, I don't take small things seriously and just want to be loved. I appreciate everything in life and small little things make me happy. • Love belly and head rubs. I am smart and eager to learn. I love people of all ages and sizes and give everyone wet doggie kisses! • My rescue mom says that I am a dream dog! ENERGY LEVEL: o Moderate/High o I am still a puppy and need my regular, walk/run/exercise. o I love to explore and sniff around and after, I enjoy resting and affectionate cuddling. GETS ALONG WITH: o Kids (video proof) – YES o Dogs – YES o Cats (video proof) – YES PREY DRIVE: o None. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. FEARS: o I am not really scared of anything as far as I know, with that said, I have never seen the outside world. I think  I would be more curious about new things than scared. TRAINING: • Leash skills – work in progress! I will need some training to master walking on leash. Given my age, I could be a little curious about my surroundings. I am not ready to walk off leash. • House trained – unknown – please be prepared to help me learn because my rescue mom is super busy and has no time to train all of us. I know how to pee on a pad and I may even know how to pee outside. If not, I promise you that I will master peeing outside in no time! HEALTH NOTES: • I have been neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.

Most likely I will come through Montreal. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from Lebanon can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Hi there! My name is AUDIE and here is some info about me: Breed: Siberian Husky Age: roughly 3 years Gender: male Weight: 19 kgs/ 46lbs Height: tbd Found as a stray in Lebanon at the age of 2 years, I had severe Demodex infection on my face. It was so severe, my rescuer thought I was hit by a car. Luckily, I made a full recovery from that, as well. My rescue was not easy, I was so scared of the lady who rescued me and I was in a lot of pain, barely able to eat. But they tell me my personality changed dramically after I got rescued and recovered. I understood that I was finally safe. My rescue mom called me Audie which means Royal Strength because she says that I am the prince of her heart and I’m also a survivor! So that's a two-in-one kinda name. I am a happy-go-lucky dog! They tell me I have an amazing character and that I’m truly funny. I can make you laugh on your worst day! I am very playful, goofy and energetic. I also love my cuddles and know how to get my belly rubs and head scratches. However, please note that I am leash reactive towards male dogs. My behavior has drastically changed since my neutering operation, but I will still need some training. My rescuer started the first step in my behavior modification journey and my family should ideally pick up from where we left off. Currently, I’m meeting male dogs from behind a fence and receiving positive reinforcement (chicken jerky that I LOVE and a lot of attention from my rescue mom which I LOVE), whenever I do not react, bark or get tense. The result is that now I do not pay any attention to the male dog behind the fence (please note that we are doing this exercise with well-balanced dogs that will not react to me and therefore cause me to react back). Here is a video showing how I reacted to a male dog (white husky) on the other side of the fence. My reactivity is 100% fear-based so it’s highly recommended that proper and slow introductions are done when I’m meeting a new dog + some confidence-boosting exercises. https://youtu.be/la_QmvWYbks. Please note that if I am not physically and mentally stimulated, I CAN get destructive and eat a pillow or a slipper. I LOVE running and playing with other female dogs. Energy Level: High. Like all huskies, I need plenty of exercise per day. I get along with: Dogs – some - extremely friendly with females, not friendly with males Cats – unknown Kids – yes, await video (please note that my rescue mom NEVER allows us dogs to be unsupervised with children younger than 10 years, regardless of how friendly we are. Many kids do not know how to respect boundaries and this can be a serious issue in the canine world. 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: none that my rescue mom knows of. I do have this one thing: I tend to tear apart any plastic bag I see. This is residue from my days as a stray because that’s how I used to find food (in trash bags). Training: Leash skills – it’s a work in progress, but I have OK leash manners and not that much of a puller. Commands: Sit and occasionally respond to “come” - us huskies are not usually to be trusted off-leash due to our high tendency to wander off, so please be prepared to train me heavily on the recall command. House trained – unknown – please be prepared to help me learn! Health Notes: I am recovering from Anemia so a high-quality diet is recommended to help me get to my healthy weight. Please do not make me wear a collar - fitted harnesses only. I tend to start coughing when getting pulled from the collar. I have been neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped. I am also free of fleas and nasty worms! 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. I will most likely be flying into Montreal. Please see below info.

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 AUTUMN 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. Other vids of me: with dogs, https://youtu.be/4kaogajkUXU; being touched, https://youtu.be/yRaGliqoo6k; more touch, https://youtu.be/C-cQdJ7NB_s. My newest video. Aren't I a happy girl? https://youtu.be/Q0JPZITYJBM. Energy Level: medium to high, depending on circumstances.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile.

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. Hi There my name is Ava/Mocha and here is some information about me:  Breed: Canaan Dog mix breed  Age: 7 months Gender: female Weight: 17 kg  Heya folks! My name is Ava and here is some info you need to know about me. I was rescued when I was only a few months old from the streets. A good Samaritan was feeding the neighborhood dogs and noticed me very skinny and sick and not eating.https://youtu.be/5RqsYHOiNCY Someone had also cut my ears off. I was a complete mess! She took me to the vet and after some treatment I am all healed now.https://youtu.be/gROB-MR89zI I was diagnosed with the parvovirus. I received treatment for two months at the hospital until I was transferred to the shelter. I have been living there ever since. I love to play with other dogs so much. I have been told there is an abundance of toys where you come from. You will have to introduce me to them because I hardly see any toys at the shelter and I love to play! I am very social with other dogs and humans but I will need a bit of patience at first. When I first meet people I am a bit shy. I haven’t been tested with kids but I am most likely good with them since I am practically a kid myself! PI have a good amount of energy and would be perfect for an active family that will take me to the dog park regularly to play off leash with other dogs. I will make the perfect addition to any family that will have me. I have all the good qualities that dogs do and then some Energy level: moderate to high Gets along with: Dogs: yes Cats: unknown Kids: unknown but I love all humans, I am really a calm happy boy. Prey drive: Unknown, adopter needs to be willing to trade me should these behaviors arise Fears: I am a bit shy when I meet new people but I get used to them very fast. I am also a bit afraid of very large dogs but mostly afraid of not finding a family to love me Training: none, adopter needs to patiently train me Leash training: some but need more training House trained: none Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives.

Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from Kuwait can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Hi there. My name is AXYL (Axl) and here is a little info about me: Breed: Lab mix Age: 3 years Gender: male Height: 24 inches Weight: 47 lbs, I could stand to gain just a couple more lbs. Hi guys! I am from Kuwait and cannot wait to travel to Canada! I was found a few months ago with a fracture in my front leg, as you can see in the xrays. No one knows what happened or how I got the fracture, but it thankfully healed without having to have surgery. Since then I have become extremely playful and love to run and play with other dogs. You will see a bit if a gimp in a video, but my leg is improving every day and the vet said I should be able to run normal again. https://youtu.be/0bgFSR3-39E,  https://youtu.be/a2cyz91UlpY. I also love to get cuddles and hugs from my human companions. What else do you expect from a Labbie? Heehee. I have been told that I am a great listener and should charge by the hour, but I won’t charge you as my new best friend! You can count on that! I am quite a curious dog, so getting used to my new environment will be fun for me. I am well socialized and love to meet new people and dogs. I currently live in a shelter, but have met kids at the vets office and would love to have my very own, 2 legged, that is. I am a loving and good natured dog. And on that note, I can’t wait to meet you! I can be in Canada in July for sure or potentially sooner (within about a month of approval), if I have an approved adopter. Some recent vids: https://youtu.be/XBAXjTYYetU, https://youtu.be/oBNNEktJ6MU. At the boarding facility: https://youtu.be/wcYgPWlA4hM, https://youtu.be/eWCMZB6tB-c. Energy level: High I get along with: Dogs: yes Cats: unknown Kids: yes, but no video proof yet Prey drive: None observed. Adopter needs to be willing to train me, should these behaviors arise. Fears: none observed, I will need patience in order to get used to my new environment. Training: Some. I could use a training class, but love to learn. Leash training: Some. Please be prepared to continue training.  House trained: yes. Please be prepared to help me learn where to go in my new home. Health notes: Prior fracture in my foreleg. No further action is needed. I am scheduled for a follow-up x-ray on April 19. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is 650.00 CAD plus applicable taxes.

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. Cheerio. My name is AYANA (Apple) and here is a little info about me: Breed: Terrier mix (Schnauzer/Border Collie) Age: 1 year old (Born May 2021) Gender: female Weight: 14kg /30 lbs Height: 44 cm / 17 inches My rescuer found me chained to a tree; lifeless and bleeding. They found out that I had severe Parvo at the vet hospital. I stayed there for a long time until I got well. Had they rescued me a day later, I would have died. I’m a very lucky girl and I’m hoping that I will find a home to call my own. Just bursting with positive puppy energy, I enjoy playing with my fellow dogs at the shelter. I currently live at the shelter giving love to the humans around me. I’m very active and I tend to jump up at the humans when I want attention, so I would need be watched around small/young children, so I don't knock them over. At least until I was trained to be careful and not jump up. I get along with dogs and people very well. My favorite thing is to give kisses https://youtu.be/zBof1_7zZfc. I’m carefree and happy all the time. You would never think meeting me that I’ve had a difficult past. I promise to entertain and love any family that chooses to give me a chance. It would be great to find an active family with a yard and another fun dog to play with. A home with older kids who can run around and play would be super too. A fairly active to moderately active home is probably best suited to me. Looking for you to pick me. Thank you. Energy level: high/active I get along with: Dogs: yes Cats: unknown Kids: yes Prey drive: none observed. My adopter needs to train me should these behaviors arise. Fears: I am not afraid of anything, which can sometimes get me in trouble due to my curiosity. Training: a bit Leash training: I walk good on leash, however I will need a little bit more practice. Please be prepared to continue training. House training: No. Please be prepared to help me learn! Health notes: I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. My adoption fee is 800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a fight volunteer directly to Vancouver.

I need fairly immediate rehoming. See my bio. G'day mate. My name is Azaya and here is a little info about me: Breed: Australian Shepherd mix     Age: 6 months old Gender: Female Weight:  33 pounds Height: 24 inches Originally rescued in the Middle East, my mother gave birth in front a house where the owner said that dogs are not welcome. He said that they should be removed from there, because they are making the view of the house ugly. Otherwise, he is going to throw us puppies in the garbage. So, my rescuer took us puppies to her home. Unfortunately, all of us got sick and my siblings died. I was the only one left. Thankfully, I found a home in Vancouver. Sadly though, my adopter is no longer able to keep me, because she now has to have a full time and a part time job. So there will be no time to take care of me. I am an energetic gal. Highly intelligent, if I do say so myself. I am quite social as well. Cuddling and kisses is my middle name. Now all that sounds like an Aussie, dunnit? I would be thrilled having an active family who loves doing walkabouts and exploring the outback. Hoping I'll be able to meet some new friends to play with too. I'm good with other pups. Of course, we simply must set aside a few moments for the ol' kissy face time. Bet I'd excel at some doggie sports. Maybe agility, rally or teach me frisbee perhaps. My rescuer says I am good with kids too. I recently met a cat, don't know what to make of them, but I am cautious. Didn't try to hurt it or go near it much.  https://youtu.be/5ZwQmYMnPyM. I really need another home or a foster asap, as my owner can only keep me a couple more weeks before she starts all her jobs. Some other vids: https://youtu.be/9j0q5xhxgIc, https://youtu.be/tl2RuXwlSo4, https://youtu.be/khpD_Nx90tw. Energy Level: high I get along with: Dogs: yes Cats: unknown. Rescuer states yes, but no video. Kids: unknown. Rescuer states yes, but no video. Prey drive: unknown/not observed. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown/not observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition. Training: yes Yes, I know the basic words like (sit, no, stand,…) Leash skills: Yes. Doing good on leash. Please be prepared to continue training. House trained: Yes. Please help me learn where to go in my new home. Health notes: I am too young yet to be spayed/neutered, but I am vaccinated and microchipped. Spay/neuter will be the responsibility of the adopter and is required for my adoption to be finalized. My adoption fee is $500.00 CAD plus applicable taxes.

Please stop a moment and read my bio. I've been waiting for 8 years to find a home. I happened to be born a jindo mix dog in S.Korea, the breed most associated with the dog meat trade (because of our docile nature) and also the least likely to be adopted here because of that stigma. People in Canada and the US, on the other hand, have discovered that we make great pets, so this is my big chance at a forever home.   My Physical Info: breed: jindo mix gender: female age: 9 years weight: 15kg (33lb) height: 48cm (19 inches) My Rescue Story: The first year of my life was spent in a proper home, along with my sister, Summer (she's also looking for a home), and my mom. But one day something terrible happened. Our owner agreed to let a meat dealer take mom, so Summer and I watched in terror as she was dragged out of the house. After that we lost trust in the humans around us.  One of the neighbours who felt sorry for us contacted KAWA (Korean Animal Welfare Association) and they were able to convince our owner to surrender us into their care. We have spent the past 8 years in KAWA's shelter because S.Korean's don't like to adopt jindo's due to the stigma of association with the dog meat trade. Thankfully Welcome Dog Korea has now agreed to help find us homes in Canada or the States. My second chance is here at last!! My Temperament When I first meet new people I tend to be quite shy.  I will take treats from the hand, but it takes me a few days before I allow petting. If I come to live with you you'll find that over the course of the initial 3 weeks or so I will gradually feel more comfortable and enjoy your touch more and more. Another confident dog in the home would be an asset, though it's not necessary.  During the three weeks I spent in a foster home the foster noticed that I like to relieve myself right after eating so the best plan is to take me outside immediately after meals.  She also found that I sometimes 'demand bark' when I want something (like food) and occasionally bark at strangers, though this behaviour diminished over time as I became more comfortable.  Now I'm back at the shelter with my sister and various other dogs and I am gentle and friendly with them all. When I particularly like a dog I will lick them and sometimes initiate play.  My Energy Level: This tends to be on the low/moderate side. I enjoy going for walks and discovering interesting smells along the way and I walk quite well on the leash. Wandering around outside in the grassy enclosures gives me a lot of pleasure too.  I get along with: dogs: yes cats: when I encountered cats on walks with my handler I showed no interest in them kids: unknown, but likely yes Health Notes:  Some of my teeth are worn down and I have stage 2 patella dislocation on both back knees, therefore should avoid slippery surfaces or jumping from heights. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. My Adoption fee: My adoption fee is $550 + tax and includes my airfare to Vancouver, or Seattle if available.

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 Bardy (Body, as in bodyguard) and here is a little info about me: Breed: Anatolian Shepherd mix Age: 2 years Gender: female Weight: 66 lbs Height: 25 inches Once upon a time there was this kind woman who used to feed stray dogs like me on a regular basis. I knew this person was my ticket to a better life, so I began to follow her car, running as fast as I could to keep up. I made it my job to be her bodyguard from there on and always found her when she came. I became a bit of an Instagram star for a video of me galloping beside her moving vehicle. This claim to fame worked: The rescue agency sought me out and took me into their care. It’s a good thing that they did. When I was finally scooped off the streets I was in poor condition. I had to have a tooth removed https://youtu.be/oE3Cow2GrtE, my rescuer made sure to check on me https://youtu.be/E5UIpv4Rbko, https://youtu.be/PgjgG3m-7YQ. Fortunately, I’ve had good veterinary care and lots of love since then. Now I just need to find my happily ever after in Canada. Can you make my dreams come true? As my rescue story shows, I will stop at nothing to be with my people. https://youtu.be/yVCukYTOvk8. This includes jumping fences. Yaaaah, escape artist, but it's only because I want to be with you, not because I want to run away. Please ensure you can spend a lot of time with me and have a secure yard where I can be outside with you. I would love to become your lifelong companion. I am an expert cuddler. I love hugs and can be in your arms for hours and it still wouldn't be enough. While I have never lived with children, those I have been around are A-ok in my book, mini-hoomans, they give love too.  My rescuer just visited with me and said: Ahat a loving dog I am. That I love people and am great with strangers and kids. Energy Level: moderate I get along with: Dogs - yes Cats - unknown Kids - yes Prey drive: None observed. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: not observed. Training: none Leash skills: No... Please be prepared to train me. House trained: No. Please be prepared to help me learn!  Health notes: I was treated for TVT and am fine now. Part of my tail is missing I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is 750.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.

What do you say to adding a little Corgi-ness to your life? Just think how much more fun life would be if you could count on a bushy-tail wag and unconditional love from your short-legged best friend. My name is Baro and I'm waiting here in S.Korea until you realize I'm just what's missing from your life.   Here's all you need to know: My Physical Info: breed: welsh corgi/jindo mix age: 2 1/2 years gender: male weight: 26lb (12kg) height: 17 inches (42cm) My Rescue Story: In April 2021 I was picked up by animal control and taken to the city pound. As a mix breed dog my chances of adoption here in Korea are very slim so, after a while, I ended up on the euthanasia list.  Fortunately, an individual rescuer came along in the nick of time and got me out of there. I spent 8 months in a foster home and am currently in a private shelter waiting for my new family. My Temperamant: I'm a friendly little chap who tends to be quite the cuddle-bug once I get to know you. Even with strangers I'm typically quite comfortable, though I can be startled on occasion by sudden movements.  It doesn't take me long to relax with people though, and before you know it I'll present my belly to be rubbed, or happily let you pick me up:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVV8tURs2P8&list=PLIsLTtIpe3Jz-G5XLBmhmST1xM3eRFPxj&index=12 My relaxed, social nature means I also get along with other dogs, and even cats. (There was a cat at my foster home and we were very amicable together.) I enjoy interacting with other dogs and tend to be quite well-mannered with them, regardless of their size or age. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL6N6JvKgjk&list=PLIsLTtIpe3Jz-G5XLBmhmST1xM3eRFPxj&index=5 I definitely enjoy my food and will sit and wait like a good boy, until you give me permission to 'take it'.  Chew toys are another big hit with me - in case you're wondering.   I rarely bark and I'm calm in the home once I've been out for a walk.   My Energy Level: I have moderate energy. I enjoy going for walks and am quite confident on-leash. I'm also pretty good at chilling out in the house. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACd9UdhcpBY&list=PLIsLTtIpe3Jz-G5XLBmhmST1xM3eRFPxj&index=11 I get along with: dogs: yes cats: yes. I lived comfortably with a cat and even when I met a strange cat outside I showed no inclination to chase it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TbC1WHapDk&list=PLIsLTtIpe3Jz-G5XLBmhmST1xM3eRFPxj&index=8 kids: yes.   Health Notes: I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My Adoption Fee: My adoption fee is $750 + tax, and includes my airfare to Vancouver or Seattle.

]: 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 [China/Middle East] can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore [dog] 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 Hi there! My name is Bella and here is some info about me: Breed: Canaan dog/Jack Russell mix  Age: 9 Months Gender: Female Weight: 20 kg  Height: 78 cm I am sweet little girl who has got lots of energy and love to run around and play with my humans and other dogs. I was only 4 months old when my rescuer saw me getting abused by couple of kids. They were trying to hang me from a tree. At first, I thought we are playing but then they put the rope around my neck and pulled me up so I’ll die. Call me lucky cause I am since at the right time I was saved by a very kind person who then take me to hospital to get checked. At hospital they found out that I am very sick with parvo. I was at hospital for couple of days and then moved to a shelter for extensive care. Now I am all healthy with no sign of sickness. Oh I forgot to mention, when I was only 2-3 months old, some heartless person cut out my ears ☹ sorry I don’t mean to make you upset but sometimes life is no fair for us street dogs in some countries. After all I can tell you that I believe in my heart they are still a lot of kind people like my rescuer, and I can not wait to meet my own human one day. I’m an attention seeker and I’ll do anything to get my human’s attention, that includes barking. I prefer to be the only dog at home but don’t mind playing with other dogs at park. I get along with other dogs and humans but not too sure about cats. I’m not too sure how I’ll react around cats/squirrels/rabbits etc. My adopter needs to be prepared and willing to train me through these behaviors, should they arise, My leash skills are not that great and I am not house trained so please be prepared to teach me all of that.   Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives.

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: Siberian Husky Age: 8 mo Gender: m Weight: 26 kg Height: 65 cm A sad, but common occurence here in the Middle East... I was left by someone at a vet 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, kids included. 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: https://youtu.be/cy7TUyW9B1k 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! 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.

Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from the Turkey can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Hi. My name is Bree and here is a little info about me: Breed: Labrador Retriever mix Age: 1 year old Gender: female Weight: 20 kg Height: 50 cm Found on the streets as a tiny puppy of only a few months old, a kind lady realised I wouldn’t be able to fend for myself and took me in. My rescuer likes to call me a ‘streamlined Lab’, with the face of a Labrador, but with a slimmer, lighter body type. I am a very sweet and social girl. I’m pretty easy-going and easily adapt to my environment. I am calm for my age, but am playful and enjoy playing with other dogs. I love people and am very affectionate. I love getting cuddles, and am very loyal to my human. I am friendly with new people and will give them a careful sniff before asking for attention. Children are also tops in my book. I don’t mind them crowding around and petting me. I get along well with other dogs, although I do like to be the boss. I am very friendly when meeting new dogs. I am also good with cats. I am a good girl who is easy to handle and learns quickly. I shouldn't get much bigger, might fill out a bit. I love my food, so my guardians think I will be easy to train https://youtube.com/shorts/rKwm_omrHnI. I jump into the car by myself and sit quietly whilst driving somewhere. Leash walking, I do reasonably well, although I may balk if spooked. When faced with new situations, I may be a bit quiet and timid at first, but I am very curious and quickly come out of my shell. A stable home with active people who will take me for walks would be very cool. I don’t mind being calm and lazy indoors though. A yard would be appreciated, but if I get to go on good walks, this isn’t a must. Another dog isn’t necessary, but I could share a home with another dog, if they don’t mind me being bossy every now and again. I just had a vet check up, because my rescuer wants me in the best possible condition before arriving. They did a routine exam and decided to get an XRay of my hips. Xray attached. The vet said I may have a predisposition toward hip dysplasia. Although my hips are fine now, he recommends that my adoptive family give me a glucosamine supplement to preventatively help keep my hips in good shape. Here's a vid that shows I am not affected by my hips: https://youtu.be/LjQA6KUhYeU. Energy Level: moderate, I’m good at being lazy, but also have a playful side. I get along with: Dogs: yes Cats: yes Kids: yes Prey drive: Unknown/Not observed. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears:  I don’t have any specific fears, but if something frightens me when I am out for a walk, I may balk. Please be patient assisting me in my transition. Training: in progress. I do walk pretty well on the leash and am good in the car. Leash skills: Some. Please be prepared to continue training. House trained: No. Please be prepared to help me learn! Health notes: I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $750.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver. I will likely fly into Montreal. Please see additional costs below.

Good day! My name is BUDDYBOY (Buddy) and here is some info about me: Buddyboy Breed: Anatolian Shepherd/German Shepard mix Age: 1.5 yrs Gender: male/neutered Weight: 23 kg Height: 50 cm Hola amigos! Que pasa? That’s what’s up, in Spanish. I am learning as many new languages as I can in order to increase my chances of getting adopted. I was recently rescued from a very horrible situation from an addict in the Middle East. Unfortunately, that is the fate of many dogs in my country. I was one of the lucky ones! I was soon after taken to a shelter. Life in the shelter is not very glamorous but trust me, it is a lot better than living on the streets with an addict. Getting along very well with all other dogs is my specialty and I absolutely love people! I am very quiet and mellow. I hardly ever bark and would be an ideal pet for a family. Though I can be a bit shy when meeting someone new, just give me time to warm up. The street and cars are something I have never seen since my rescue, so please be aware of new things that I may need to get accustomed to. I also get along with kids. I have not been tested with cats, but because I have an amazing temperament, I don’t see why I would not get along with them also. Thanks for looking at my profile! I hope to see you in Canada soon! I promise to be your buddy for life! Energy level: low to low-moderate I am good with: Dogs: yes Cats: Unknown, most likely yes Kids: yes Prey drive: I have no prey drive, but my adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviors should they arise. I lived with two small dogs the first six months after being rescued. Fears: I will need some patience in order to get used to my new environment. I am skittish and shy when I first meet strangers. Training: Some leash training Leash Skills: I am good on the leash, but can use continued training House trained: no. Please be prepared to help me learn! Health notes: My teeth have been cleaned, so I can give you a big smile. I have been neutered vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes.

A big hello to all hoomans. My name is CAZANOVA and here is some exciting information about me. Breed: Poodle/Terrier Mix Age: 8 years Gender: Male Weight: 7kg Height: 40 cm Please take time to read all about me.  I really need to leave the MIDDLE EAST and find my forever home in Canada.  Even though I’m an older dog, there is so much to love about me. I was abandoned on the streets after I became paralyzed in my back legs.  My rescuers took me to a vet and, low and behold, the paralysis was only temporary. After surgery and some fun physio (check out that hydrotherapy pool), I can now move really well, although I’m not able to put weight on my back left leg. If you think that slows me down, you’d be wrong.  As you can see from my vids, I get around just fine. https://youtube.com/watch?v=nka-lG3pd00     https://youtube.com/watch?v=AvgCBePaW6g https://youtube.com/watch?v=WniB36E5dJQ Having a kind nature, I am quite a sociable pup. I don’t show any resource guarding, but I do like some peace and quiet when I eat my food. If I see strangers, or other dogs, I will sometimes bark to let them know I am around.  Oh, and I look amazing in a pair of sun goggles (hee, hee). I currently share a house with lots of doggie friends, but I’m ready to fly solo as well.  If you have a cat, we could happily live together.  I don’t bother them but will sometimes follow along if they go outdoors. My rescuers say I am good with children, so it might work if we take it slow.  Well, that is enough about me.  I would love to meet you and become your best friend. We could go for lots of great walks and hang out together. What do you say? Energy Level: moderate I get along with: Dogs: yes  https://youtube.com/watch?v=QbBjpME_3RY Cats: unknown Kids: Yes  Prey drive: I will sometimes follow cats if we are both outdoors. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown/none observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition Training: some Leash skills: yes. I have learned to walk on a leash quite well. Please be prepared to continue my training.  https://youtube.com/watch?v=_eP6fGpzD40 House trained: No. Please be prepared to help me learn!

Hi there! My name is Chance and here is some info about me: Breed: Lab Jack Russell mix Age: 1 yr Gender: Male Weight: 50 lbs Height :22 inches I am an impossibly sweet and adorable 1 yr old lab/terrier mix with the most beautiful pair of green eyes. I don’t remember much about my past life but boy, was I ever lucky to be rescued when I was. I remember the day I was rescued like it was yesterday. I woke up like any other day, except my mom was nowhere to be found. I think my mom had started weaning me off and was leaving me alone for longer periods of time. I remember walking around looking for her when a group of six or seven teenagers spotted me. I remember them walking towards me and I was so excited because I thought they were bringing me food. Sadly, I had never been so wrong! I remember one of the grabbing me and holding me tight while the others tied a rope around my two back legs! Before I knew it, I was hanging upside down from a tree, I was so scared and had no idea what was happening. I remember one of them holding a stick and the others were swinging me around in all different directions! I was missing my mom, I needed her! I started crying as loud as I could, hoping that my mom would hear me and come to my rescue. I didn’t even want to think about what was coming next. I could see the guy with the stick approaching me as he raised the stick. Then I heard a lady screaming in the background. That’s when I first met my rescue mom. She pleaded with the teenagers to set me free and when they refused to do that, my rescue mom threatened to cough on them. Given the state of Covid then, that did the trick. She saved me and I am forever grateful to her. She named me Chance because it was just by chance she found me that day. I lived with my rescue mom and about 60 other furry friends of mine at her shelter. I am great with all the dogs but being very submissive I was a target for bullying, even by the small dogs. Thankfully I am now in a foster home in Vancouver, waiting for someone to realize I am the the ideal dog for them.  Getting affection and cuddling are my very favourite things. Belly and head rubs are especially welcome. As long as you keep the affection coming, I will be there to receive it. You will be rewarded with many doggie kisses. Besides being super gentle, I am also very smart and am eager to learn and to please. Ipromise to be the most obedient boy you could ever ask for.  I love people, dogs and cats are also safe with me. I love to run around and play with other dogs and will even play with cats if they will let me. My rescue mom says I don’t have a single mean bone in my body, I am so gentle that I even walk away when other dogs try to take my food. Given that I am an energetic puppy, a fenced back yard or a home near a doggie park would be ideal for me. Because I was attacked and bullied by the dogs at the shelter, my rescue mom had to keep me in a small room away from everyone, thats the best she could do. I get scared easily so its best for me to find a patient, calm land oving home where my family can help me gain my confidence  and not be so scared.  If you are looking for a kind and devoted lifetime companion who will love you unconditionally and bring you lots of joy and laughter, please take a chance on me. It is time for me to get out of the shelter and find my place in the world, hopefully with you. As apuppy, I was diagnosed with Hypocalcemia which is basically calcium difficiency. My rescue mom had to talke me to the dentist and they put pocelain cover on my teeth. They look beautiful and they are supposed to last me a very long time providing that I do not chew on anything hard. My diet should not consist of any hard bones or hard kibbles. I would do best on soft food, or soft kibble. If you choose to feed me ray, please make sure the bones are grounded please. I have been neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my crate and my airfare if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver.

Well hello there. I've been waiting for you to find me 'cause I'm thinking you might just be 'my' person. Here's all the stuff you might want to know about me: My Physical Info: breed: jindo mix gender: male age: 2 1/2 years weight: 25kg (55lb) height: 54cm (21 inches) My Rescue Story: In May 2021 I was locked up in a small cage in the city pound when a big-hearted person came by to see who she could save from that awful place. Luckily for me my thumping tail and wide smile caught her attention and she decided she couldn't leave me there. She brought me home and fostered me for the next six months until I was ready for adoption. Now she's asked Welcome Dog Korea to find me a home in Canada or the States where people have discovered what great pets we jindo mix dogs make. My Temperament: I'm a people-lover. Don't get me wrong, I like other dogs too, but people are my absolute favourite. Being petted is 'to-die-for', in my opinion, so I'll happily approach just about anyone in the hope they might give me a scratch on the head or a belly-rub. And I know a couple of commands too: I have learned to sit and wait for permission before going to my bowl, and I can do 'paw': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCYLDB031Jo&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzU3rhcVyM-ODlcJB4Wy_i9&index=4 My smart and curious nature meant I soon figured out yummy things can be found on the kitchen counter in my foster home, so it might be wise not to leave any food within reach if you're not around. These are some of my likes: chew-toys, car rides and walks. And my dislikes: nail trimming, baths and shots at the vet (don't be surprised if I growl a little bit at these things, though I have never shown any aggression.) I get along well with dogs of all sizes and don't come on too strong with the little ones so they tend to be comfortable around me. My Energy Level: My energy level is moderate. I do love going for walks and tend to walk quite nicely on leash. Urban noises don't really bother me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kkTYi42r7Q&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzU3rhcVyM-ODlcJB4Wy_i9&index=7 I get along with: dogs: yes cats: probably not as I want to chase those I have met on the street kids: yes, if old enough Health Notes: At the time of my rescue from the pound I was heartworm postitive (stage 2), but I was treated and cleared on December 8th, 2021. I appear to be hard of hearing. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee: My adoption fee is $750 + tax and includes my airfare to Vancouver (or Seattle if available).

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 [China/Middle East] can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore [dog] 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. Hi there! My name is Chickpea and here is some info about me: Breed: Anatolian Shepherd mix  Age: 2 months  Gender: Female Weight: 17 kg  I am a cute little girl with lots of energy, let me tell you how I was found. A very nice lady was passing by on a busy street when she noticed a drug addict/homeless was holding me and I was screaming for help, she came close and noticed my body was burnt from cigarette. Immediately she took me from the horrible person and took me to hospital. She was so kind to let me stay at her place for a week until she found me a nice shelter that I am staying right now. I love playing with other dogs, but I am very jealous when my human go close to other dogs, I need to be in a home that I am the only dog. I need to receive countless amount of love and attention. It takes time for me to trust other dogs and humans, but once I trust them, I will become the best dog you ever met. I prefer humans over dogs, but I love to have playdate with my favorite doggy friend where I can run and have fun. ENERGY LEVEL:  High I have never been for a walk outside of the shelter or to a dog park and I cannot wait to experience all of that. GETS ALONG WITH: Kids: I love all humans however there is no kid at the shelter so no vid proof for that  Dogs – YES Cats: I rather not but I will be ok with them  PREY DRIVE: UNKNOWN I’m not too sure how I’ll react around squirrels/rabbits etc. I am mostly in awe of everything since I am just learning about the “outside of my cage” world! My adopter needs to be prepared and willing to train me should I find squirrels interesting enough to chase after. TRAINING: Leash skills – I dont have any training as I am only 2 months old.  House trained -- please be prepared to help me learn!  Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives.

HEALTH NOTES: I have not been neutered, but I have been*vaccinated & micro-chipped. ADOPTION FEE: 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.

My name is CISCO (Cooper) and here is a little info about me: Breed: Cattledog/Anatolian Shepherd/Saluki mix Age: 11 months Gender: Male Weight: 28.5 kg Height: 65 cm I had a sad start to life HERE IN THE MIDDLE EAST. At two months of age, some horrible people killed my mother and sister and left me alone next to their bodies. Luckily a wonderful rescuer found me and took me to a vet. They found a wound on my neck which needed to be treated; probably from another dog. Anyway, things are better for me now. My wound is completely healed and I’m healthy. I currently live in a boarding facility with other doggie friends, but I would love a forever family of my own. My rescuers tell me that Canada is a great place for dogs. Would you open your heart and adopt me? My rescuers describe me as calm and affectionate, although I also have a playful side, as you will see in my videos. In fact, my tail never stops wagging. https://youtu.be/X8jknDaxds8 I am learning to walk on a leash, but will need more training to make sure I have good manners when we go out and about. I love my food, but show no resource guarding. In addition, I am a very handsome pup (if I do say so myself)!  https://youtu.be/Le2HMqEL1sU https://youtube.com/watch?v=P67bS0Gv96A?feature=share My rescuers tell me I am the best dog you could wish for and will make my new family very happy. Hope you agree. Right now, I have lots of doggie friends of all shapes and sizes. If you already have a dog, I’m sure we would soon be best friends, but it’s not required. Having never met a cat, I’m not sure if we would get along. I also have no experience with children. My dream is to have some fun adventures with my new family. Can’t wait for that to happen. Energy Level: moderate I get along with: Dogs: yes. I love to play with other dogs. Cats: unknown Kids: unknown Prey drive: unknown/not observed. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviors, should they arise. Fears: unknown/none observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition. Training: some. Leash skills: I am learning to walk on a leash. Please be prepared to continue my 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 couple weeks or so AFTER arrival. Check out courses in your local area and enroll 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: healthy I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD plus 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: $375-$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 $1200-4000 USD, dependent on size.

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

My rescuer saw a car stopped 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 a live puppy in the plastic bag, me. The tip of my ears had been cut off, alone & cast off at only 4 months old. My rescuer took me home and soon after that I came to the USA in the hopes of finding a better life and a loving family.  About a month after my arrival, my foster family noticed that too much stimuli and changes increased my anxiety. Any time I was anxious, I started mouthing my foster mom to get attention for my needs. I was responding well to CBD oil and medication, along with training, to help me in special situations, such as meeting new people. Adopted out to a young couple, they stopped my CBD and medicine, consequently my anxiety became much worse. It was quickly apparent that this was not the right family for me. I went back to my foster in WA and thus looking for my forever family still. Sadly, due to the switching around, my anxiety was worse. The vet put me on anti-anxiety medicine that has calmed me tremendously. Too many changes and certain noises bring about anxiety, so I need a calm, loving, patient, experienced person to provide support and help overcome fears. Positive reinforcement only is a must. Once comfortable with surroundings, I love exploring & getting petted. Other dogs are a joy to me and I am polite, playful and friendly with them. I definitely feel more comfortable around dogs than people, and will trust you more readily if other dogs vouch for you. I love spending time outside—I adore lakes, streams, ponds and puddles! Water is fun, and getting in the water helps me relax. Currently, I am loving half-days spent at daycare, running and playing with all my new friends! (Here is a video of me playing) I do tend to guard my valuable treats and toys at times, especially when I am anxious. Currently we are working on that with a trainer. Please understand that I will need ample adjustment time to trust and support while getting used to a new home. I will need you to be around all the time and stay with me until I am comfortable—this may take time! Once I trust you, you will find that I am very sweet and loving! I really am a smart boy and a quick learner. I am currently in training to help me manage situations that cause me stress. Continued trainjng is recommended. I have not 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.  Here I am being a silly boy, https://youtu.be/c17HKDD0djw. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $750.00 CAD + applicable taxes.  Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.
