About BATATA (Israel) kt
Adoption Fee: $800
Hi everyone. My name is BATATA and here is a little info about me:
Breed: Canaan Dog/Austrian Pinscher mix
Age: 1-1/2 yrs
Weight: 23 kg
Height: 40 cm
Highlight(s): playful, clever, confident
Here I am, a playful and funny boy, awaiting a home abroad.
My rescuer found me last year in Israel when I was about a month old. When she was heading down a main road to the shelter, she heard a puppy crying, me. I was hiding under a tree, alone and quite scared. Hard to say what happened to my mama or siblings. So here at the shelter I have been waiting for my turn to get adopted.
I am energetic and clever too. I am a bit higher on the assertive side, confident top dog is probably a good way to say. No fear of anything.
I like to eat. So training should be easy with treats, especially given I am so smart, if I do say so myself. Though not yet house trained (since I have lived in the shelter the past year, I walk well on leash.
Energy Level: moderate to moderate-high
I get along with:
Fears: unknown/none observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition.
Training: a bit of leash training
Leash skills: some. Please be prepared to train continue training.
House trained: No. Please be prepared to help me learn!
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.

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.
