About ABBEY (West Bank, yo)
Adoption Fee: $750
Halloooo. My name is ABBEY (Abby) and here is a little info about me:
Breed: Lab/Canaan Dog mix
Age: 3-1/2 yrs
Weight: 30 kg
Height: 65 cm
Highlight(s) about dog: playful, shy but sweet, entertaining, affectionate
Though calm, I can sometimes feel a bit anxious and get nervous. I am kind of shy, but also clever. I just need time to get to know you, so I feel safe. I'm really quite bright, so once I figure out everything is okay, I learn well & quickly.
My siblings & I were found near someone's house when we were only 2 months old. Our rescuers took us to the shelter for our safety. I have been awaiting the chance for my turn to come up to find a home.
You will enjoy my entertaining nature. I'm good at bringing a smile to people's faces. I am a very faithful girl, who will bond well & show great affection to my family, once I feel secure.
I am good with other dogs: https://youtu.be/Isdu8SxiUJM. Cats & kids have not yet been in my repertoire.
A somewhat mellow home would suit me best. Not a great deal of commotion would help me settle faster. I'd still love to get out and have fun though. Sniffing around is a great adventure.
Ready to head your way, just tap that adopt button and you're on your way to getting me there.
Energy Level: moderate
I get along with:
Fears: Bit shy at first, unknown/none observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition.
Leash skills: no. Please be prepared to train me.
House trained: no. Please be prepared to help me learn!
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.

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