About ACE (Texas, kp) Bonded w/ Cody
Adoption Fee: $1500/Bonded pair
Hi, my name is Ace. Here a some info about me:
Breed: miniature pinscher
Age: 3 years
Weight: 25 pounds
Height: 18 inches
Hello dear Canadians! My brother, Cody and I are very attached to one another. We live in Houston Texas at the moment. Somebody just dumped us with a cage on someone’s ranch. Thankfully, the lady that lived there was so kind and took us in. However, she is an older lady that is developing major back issues, and is having a hard time taking care of both of us.
She thinks that we have been living in a cage for all our lives and have been abused. We are both shy. We get easily scared... like when someone slams the door making a loud noise.
We are extremely sweet and get along with people and other dogs very well.
However, we are aggressive towards cats. It might take us a little bit of time to come out of our shell. It took us about two weeks to warm up to the sweet lady that took us in. After that she was able to cuddle with us and bathe us very easily.
We will need to be adopted together in a family that is patient and will love us and give us the life that we deserve. We both deserve a second chance and to know that life is not what we have experienced so far. Please, be the one to prove that to us!
Energy level: moderate
Gets along with:
Prey Drive: we are not a big fan of cats so probably have a moderate prey drive. Our adopter needs to be willing to train us through this.
Fears: because of our past experience, we are afraid of loud noises and are somewhat jumpy. We will need a patient adopter to help us get used to our new environment.
Leash trained: I walk well on leash. Please be prepared to continue training.
Housetrained: yes. Please be prepared to help me learn where to go in my new home.
Health notes: I have a heartworm issue, which is currently being treated. Other than that we have no health issues.
I have been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
Our adoption fee is $1500 CAD + applicable taxes for both of us. This includes our transportation to Canada, if we are able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer.
Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.
Information included in the profile is provided to us from the international rescuer or local fosters. LALDR does not have access to overseas dogs and cannot always verify the accuracy of their descriptions. Every dog is an individual and can act differently in different situations based on the person adopting them and the environment in which they live.
Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives. Although a 1-on-1 trainer is often not needed, it is good to have someone in mind in case any problematic behaviours arise. Most bad behaviours can be modified if caught early enough, so make sure to nip undesirable behaviours in the bud before they become serious problems.
Basic training should be taken seriously, but should not begin until your dog is well settled in - at least a couple of weeks. After you feel your new dog is relaxed and comfortable in their new home, check out training courses in your local area. Even basic beginner courses like those taught at a local pet store can have a huge benefit in helping your dog learn to socialize and get used to being in public situations, all with the added benefit of strengthening their bond with you.
While most dogs find escorting passengers flying directly to Vancouver, some will find flights through Toronto or Montreal. In that case, additional fees will apply to fly your dog to Vancouver by cargo. Unaccompanied cargo costs within Canada range from $350 - $550 depending on the size of the dog. LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs.
The age and breed of a dog is usually an educated guess, so we are not able to guarantee the accuracy of age or breed of our dogs.
Normally, we will not approve adoptions to homes with children under 12 years of age. However if a dog has been determined to be good with children we will approve applicants with children 8 years or older. More information can be found on our website.
