About A FOSTER Dog Application

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. 

If you are looking to make a difference in a dogs life for a short period of time, please apply now. 

What is fostering?

  • 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. 

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 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

SUNDING (S Korea) ck

Labrador Retriever

Hello there!  My name is Sunding (Sunding means Gentle One in Korean) and I am a 2 year old female Lab mix that weighs 44 pounds (20 Kg)... show more

Hello there!  My name is Sunding (Sunding means Gentle One in Korean) and I am a 2 year old female Lab mix that weighs 44 pounds (20 Kg) and stands 21 inches high.  I was rescued as a stray from an open field in S Korea when I was just a pup.  Now it is my time to find a forever home. Just like my name, I am a gentle and serene girl. My handler says I express my emotions very clearly in my distinct way, if there is something I do like or don't like, it is obvious to detect.  Communication is my thing!  With strangers, I am very obedient and gentle, you can see from my videos that my tail just keeps wagging :)  Despite how much I love all people, my handler was told by a previous caretaker that I was unfriendly towards kids, especially young ones under 6, so no kids in my home please! When meeting other dogs, I start off with my tail wagging, but if large dogs approach when I am uncomfortable, I can react in a fearful way.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLDgQqww7Ps&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzErtpmakLM5Q2d7V_QVUdL&index=3  My handler says I seem very careful around stronger looking dogs.  I do not like high energy dogs, and can growl at them.  (See, communication is my thing!)  I do hang out well with other dogs that are more independent during play time.  When meeting a cranky little dog, I showed interest at first but backed off when she rejected me.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LJ00BD0kiU&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzErtpmakLM5Q2d7V_QVUdL&index=4   With cats, I approached one carefully and sniffed it, but backed off when it looked at me.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GyWrfBIFVo&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzErtpmakLM5Q2d7V_QVUdL&index=5 .  However I do get excited during walks and may chase squirrels or cats that run, so have a prey drive.  I could probably live with a dog experienced cat that doesn't run away. I have a moderate amount of energy, love love love playing and spending time with my people. I love to play with dogs as long as they are not high energy and respect my communication.  I also like to dig holes with my buddies.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vcAbWQq8bY&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzErtpmakLM5Q2d7V_QVUdL&index=8   During walks, I really like my sniffy times, and am familar with leash walking.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLQ9mlUA140&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzErtpmakLM5Q2d7V_QVUdL&index=7   My handler says I have not shown any aggression (other than growling at dogs that annoy me) so I should be monitored when meeting a new dog.  I love food (what Lab doesn't??) but do not show any signs of resource guarding.  That speaks well to how trainable I will be.  I do not have separation anxiety, rarely bark, am comfortable in a kennel and do not get carsick.  However, I can jump quite high, easily jump over baby gates, so I will need either a very secure high fenced yard, or be leashed until we form a very strong bond.  I also have contact dermatitis.  Areas without fur, such as foot pads, stomach and groin areas show allergic reactions with red rashes.  I take meds for it and my handlers try to keep me dry. If you want me to be your good girl, apply for me today! Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives. Although a 1-on-1 trainer is often not needed, it is good to have someone in mind in case any problematic behaviours arise. Most bad behaviours can be modified if caught early enough, so make sure to nip undesirable behaviours in the bud before they become serious problems! Basic training should be taken seriously and should begin within a few days after arrival. After your dog has settled in, check out courses in your local area. Even basic beginner courses like those taught at a local pet store can have a huge benefit in helping your dog learn to socialize and get used to being in public situations, all with the added benefit of strengthening their bond with you.  HEALTH NOTES: I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. ADOPTION FEE: My adoption fee is $750.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. ------------------------------------- Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

My rescuer is trying to get me to Canada as soon as possible. Hoping the wait won't be too long. TALLA Breed: Siberian Husky Age: 3 yrs Gender: fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 60 lbs / 22 inches Energy level: moderate high to high Relations:  good with dogs /unkniwn cats & kids Highlights: vocal "talker", cuddly, playful, possessive of stuff, scared of yelling Region: Middle East My personality is pretty well rounded. I like to play and run, but slso to relax in a cool corner if the house. I am active, yet like a good cuddle and to be petted. Found in the Middle East when I was almost a year old near death while pregnant, my rescuer did all she could to save me. They say I was brave to fight the battle to stay alive for myself and my unborn puppies. I indeed recovered and shortly thereafter gave birth. A very kind couple kept me and my pups for the past 2 years. Now facing financial hardships where they live, the couple has to sell their home and move into an apartment. No more yard, no more room for us, not a lot of money to care for us any further. So, we need a home. My son, Marsey, is (or will soon be) also posted. I tend to be possessive of my food bowl, toys and bed. So, probably best as an only pet in the home. I do become very scared of people yelling or violent behaviour and will run away, since I had been severely beaten and abused. I need someone understanding of giving me time to learn I am safe. A quieter environment will suit me best. It would be great if I could still have a yard, but not a requirement. Hope you like husky music (it's solid 'Gold', just like my name means), cause I like to woowoo and talk to you. I am pretty active, as most huskys are. Oh, I am a bit of an attention seeker. No need to worry about wondering where I am, I'll be right there awaiting some snuggles. I do get along with other dogs for play once introduced, though I have never been around cats or kids. Gosh, I'd sure love to get to a cooler climate, like Canada or the Pacific Northwest. I can be there soon, if you will just submit your app and get the process rolling. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $700.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver. Due to 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): For USA/Canada border transfer (via a Brokerage Company): $370 weekdays. Two dogs crossing, $270 per dog. Three dogs, $215 per dog. Four dogs, $190 per dog. Prices are higher on the weekend. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada: $275-$475 per dog.

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

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. TEDIMEH (Teddy) Breed: Corgi / Terrier Age: 2 yrs Gender: Fe, neutered Wgt/Hgt: 18 lbs / TBA inches Energy level: moderate Relations: good with small dogs with intro and kids (vids to come) /unknown cats Highlights: sweet, cuddly, afraid of large dogs yet, quiet, calm Region: Middle East Ears, ears, ears... the better to hear you laugh with, as I show you my cute & silly personality. Found on street in the Middle East, I was beaten up by a drug addict. My little body was covered with bruises. I stayed in the hospital for 4 months recovering. Now I am at a shelter all healthy and ready for my new home. I'm joyful and bounce around amongst my friends, as you can see in my video. My energy is average for my breed though. Though short in stature, I'm tall in love. Children can be most enjoyable, though I await a video to share. I will get used to another dog in the home given time to introduce, though I am fearful of large dogs yet.  You will find me to be a lovely, snuggly pup. I do have a bit of anxiety. If left alone more than 4 hours, I will start to get worried and start barking. Here I am at the vet awaiting a check up https://youtu.be/5QH9JR9Df64. Awaiting more photos, so you can see my beauty. My latest photos show how small I actually am. See how big that sida bottle is compared to me? LOL. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.  Due to ongoing limits on Vancouver flights yet, additional fees will apply if flying from another city. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada: $275-$500 per dog. LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs. I will be on the first available flight, as I need to leave the Middle East as soon as possible. If a flight directly to Vancouver is not found quickly after I've found a family, the extra cost for cargo to Vancouver will not be optional.  Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Please note additional fees further below that may apply to get me to Vancouver. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from the Middle East can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore this dog is only available to Canadian residents. TEQUILA  (Tala) Breed: Husky mix Age: 1 yr Gender: fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 44 lbs / 18 inches Energy level: high Relations: good with dogs and kids /NOT good with cats Highlights: friendly, mild food aggression, playful Region: Middle East Can you say ooooo. Have a look at my eyes, see if you don't make that sound. I have bi-color eyes. Piercing blue and melt your heart brown. Sadly, when I was found on the streets in the Middle East with my Mama, one of my paws was missing a toe on my right rear. Strange because my mother was missing a different toe. It was infected and so the vets treated it. It is all healed now, no problem. I get along with other dogs and kids. I am really bonded with my Mama, Margarita, so would like to remain in a home with her. I tend to get nervous and howl within minutes if seperated from her. Cats are not a creature I like though, so please don't have any of those in the house please. I have a bit of mild food aggression, but that should easily work out with some consistent training, as you see they are working in in our videos being treated with another dog. It is not with people or my mama, just other dogs. https://youtu.be/oSHFyzs7EMI. I am playful and full of energy, so having a yard is a must and an active family will be important. I am a sweet pup who likes getting attention and trying to give you a slurp. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. Our adoption fee is $1500.00 CAD + applicable taxes for both of us. This includes our transportation to Canada, if we are 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.

This is NOT a dog belonging to LALDR. This is a courtesy posting. Please do not contact us, as we know nothing about the dog. For more information, please contact: swhitehouse@givebackcontracting.com. **The owners are looking for a long-term foster for two lovely dogs.** Tessa is an 8 year old, spayed Purebred Siberian Husky. She is good with Kids and Cats. Not good with rabbits, chickens or other small animals. Doesn’t like small yappy dogs, has pinned a few down at the dog park but never bitten any. She is a big suck when she wants something, but has the husky attitude and likes her space as well. Needs to be tied up or in a dog run because she likes to explore and will not come back if she gets off leash until she is tired. She enjoys daily walks/runs and loves the dog park. Tywinn is a 7 year old, neutered Lab Mastiff Cross. He was acquired as a rescue dog from a reserve in the NW Territories. He has a micro-chip. Good with kids and cats and all other small animals. He is a big dog but very gentle and relaxed. He has good recall if by himself, but if he is off leash with Tessa then he will follow her and take off exploring. He also has lots of energy and enjoys daily walks and or trips to the dog park. If you are interested in being a long-term foster for Tessa and Tywinn please contact swhitehouse@givebackcontracting.com. show less

Hi there! My name is TONI and here is some info about me: PHYSICAL INFO: Breed: Lab/Chihuahua Mix - I look like a "Mini-Lab" (a true Mexi-mutt!) Age: 4 months Gender: Female Weight: 12 lbs (5.5 kg) - still growing! My rescuer thinks I'll max out around 25 lbs. Height: TBD RESCUE STORY: I was found taped inside a box along with my 2 siblings. Based on our condition when found, it was apparent that we had been on our own for quite some time before being found taped in the box in Ajijic, Mexico. Luckily, we were rescued! We are now safe and sound in a foster home and are enjoying the love and attention we get here.              TEMPERAMENT: This is what my foster mama has to say about me: "Toni is a bit more shy than her siblings, but warms up quickly and is as sweet and loving as any puppy I’ve known. She is always the first to jump into my lap and doesn’t mind the other two climbing on top of her to get their spot. All three fit in my lap at the same time, so we enjoy many group hugs. Toni is growing fast and changing daily; she still bears the marks of her difficult beginning (her tiny head was one big flea bite!) and is shy with a bit of concern about what’s happening around her. This is normal and with time, she will be just fine. She has become very social with everyone here, cats, dogs and humans alike. (https://youtu.be/oKjUy1DVN2o) ENERGY LEVEL: Moderate - typical puppy energy  GETS ALONG WITH: Kids – UNKNOWN Dogs – YES! I currently live with multiple other doggies (including my 2 rambunctious brothers) and we get along great. (https://youtu.be/eM087bLFo9k ; https://youtu.be/7KMVam0Rtos) I love my bros and am a contender in puppy wrestling.  Cats – YES - I am living with cats currently and am learning that they don't like to be chased.  PREY DRIVE: UNKNOWN, likely low/moderate (ok with cats) I’m not too sure how I’ll react around squirrels/rabbits etc. My adopter needs to be prepared and willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. FEARS: None known, just a bit shy sometimes. TRAINING: Leash skills – In progress! House trained – In progress! – please be prepared to help me continue to learn. I am responding well to the beginnings of training; I know that puppy biting and chewing are not acceptable. I am easily redirected to an appropriate chew toy.  I am eager to please and so very gentle.  Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives. Although a 1-on-1 trainer is often not needed, it is good to have someone in mind in case any problematic behaviours arise. Most bad behaviours can be modified if caught early enough, so make sure to nip undesirable behaviours in the bud before they become serious problems! Basic training should be taken seriously and should begin within a day or two of arrival. After your dog has settled in, check out courses in your local area. Even basic beginner courses like those taught at a local pet store can have a huge benefit in helping your dog learn to socialize and get used to being in public situations, all with the added benefit of strengthening their bond with you. HEALTH NOTES: I am too young to be spayed right now; this will be discussed once an adopter is found for me! I have received all my puppy vaccines. NOTE: Mexico dogs are not microchipped. ADOPTION FEE: My adoption fee is $750.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. Dogs from Mexico typically arrive within 6-8 weeks of being approved for adoption. Mexico dogs fly into SEATTLE (not Vancouver). This necessitates a USA/Canada border transfer. We have been using a trusted Pet Transport company to escort the dogs from Seattle to South Surrey. This is an additional charge of $225/dog. All options will be discussed with you by the Mexico Rescue Coordinator. ------------------------------------- Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

I'm looking for a dog-experienced home without children. Hey there, future fam! My name is TUCO and I am originally from Mexico, but currently living in a foster home in Nanaimo, B.C.   Breed: golden retriever mix Age: 2 1/2 Gender: male Weight: 37lb/18 kg   My rescue story is a bit of a mystery. All that my rescuer knows is that I was a stray pup on the streets of Guadalajara for quite some time before I was rescued and sent to live in a Mexican foster home for 6 months.   Now I have arrived in Canada and I'm sharing a foster home with a bunch of other dogs. At first I got along well with them all, but once I began to think of this as my place I started to be a bit protective of my toys and food. For this reason I should probably be the only animal in the home.  My foster dad takes us to the dog park regularly where I can run and play off-leash and enjoy meeting other dogs and people.  I like to say hello to every person I meet:  I've become quite popular with the humans there! The only humans I'm not so fond of are the little'uns. Kids make me nervous and I will bark at them, so a kid-free home is a must. I am a pretty high energy pooch and I love to play!. My ideal home would be with active people and would have room for me to run and play outside (or a dog park close by) but also have a big cozy bed for me to snooze on after I've got all my zoomies out. Chasing squirrels and going for long walks are a couple of my favourite activitites. Talking of long walks, my leash skills are a work in progress as I can be reactive to certain strange dogs we meet on walks and may bark or lunge at them. Luckily I'm not a very big dog so I'm relatively manageable, but my foster dad is helping me learn how to be more polite. When it comes to people, you'll find I am very affectionate and will bond strongly if given the chance. I know I still have room for improvement, but if you are willing to give me some direction and boundaries, I will do my absolute best to please you. Come and meet me so you can see for yourself just how eager-to-please I really am.   I am neutered and vaccinated. My adoption fee is $750 + tax.   ----------------------------- Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced 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! My name is VIGO and here is some info about me: I am part of a bonded pair with EWOK Breed: Tibetan Terrier mix Age: 3 yrs Gender: m Weight: 9 kg Height: 38 cm Rescued along with eight other small dogs from a zoo in a Middle East city in February 2020, I spent days and nights in cages like the other wild animals in the cold & heat. I was left hungry, thirsty and scared. I was abused and beaten and my rescuers do not know if I was left at the zoo or if I was born there, so nobody knows how long I may have been there. After being rescued, I was taken with the other tormented dogs to be cleaned and checked. Then I was sent in to a major city for medical work. I currently reside in a boarding facility: https://youtu.be/VkClOv_KMp0. There is another dog, who is very dependent on me to feel safe. Her name is EWOK. Best guess is that she is my Mum. Though we have spent many months at the facility, she is still reliant on me, so they keep us together. Unlike my mom, I like humans and am quite approachable. I walk comfortably with a collar and leash. I can be hugged and have had no issues at all with that. In fact I am a loving and kind pup. I enjoy going for walks. I tend to be very good with doggie communications. I will take initiative to play if a dog comes to me as long as I am in the mood for play. I have no fears being brought out of my crate or the car. Hoping you have it in your heart to adopt us both and the patient willingness to help my mama overcome her fears. It will just take time. Energy Level: moderate Get along with: Dogs, yes Cats, unknown Kids, unknown Prey drive: It has been seen that I sometimes follow chickens and cats. Unknown if curiosity or something more. Not observed with squirrels, rabbits, etc... My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: I can become anxious when Ewok is taken away from me. Of course, there is no problem when she is not with me when I am taken out. Nothing else noted. Training: Leash skills, I get along fairly well with collar and leash. Will need continued 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 a week 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. Our adoption fee is $1300.00 CAD + applicable taxes for both of us. This includes our transportation to Canada, if we are 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.

Information included in the profile is provided to us from the international rescuer or local fosters. LALDR does not have access to overseas dogs and cannot always verify the accuracy of their descriptions. Every dog is an individual and can act differently in different situations based on the person adopting them and the environment in which they live. The age and breed of a dog is usually an educated guess, so we are not able to guarantee the accuracy of age or breed of our dogs. Normally, we will not approve adoptions to homes with children under 12 years of age. More information can be found on our website. *Vaccinations: Dogs from the Middle East are vaccinated for rabies, parvo, distemper, leptospirosis, adenovirus type 1 and para-influenza. Bordatella is not given, as that has not been a problem in the Middle East.  show less

**This is NOT a dog belonging to LALDR. This is a courtesy posting. Please do not contact us, as we do not have specific information about this dog. For more information, please contact the individual or rescue group listed below. Thank you.*    Hey, did you hear that? That's the sound of hearts melting everywhere from Willow's soulful eyes. She sure gets a lot of compliments on her looks, and Willow is looking for a forever family that will take the time to discover her quirky personality too!    Willow is a curious, intelligent, fiercely loyal Akita mix. She does happy dances for treats and walks, her favourite things! She's a quick learner, and loves showing off all her tricks (especially when there's a tasty reward involved). She’s only 2 years young, so the sky’s the limit for her!   Sometimes we call her a #chillow because she's so relaxed at home. She snoozes all day while her fosters work and keeps herself occupied. She doesn't have any bad habits, no separation anxiety, and can be left loose in the house while you're gone, which makes for a great welcome at the door when you're back!   Although Willow feels very safe and relaxed at home, she can get pretty scared with all the sights and sounds once she gets outdoors. She gets nervous around other dogs, so when they get too close to her she tells them she needs space by barking at them! She's getting better at being around dogs and is cautiously excited to meet new humans, especially when she's rewarded with tasty treats! (Treats > dogs). She even has doggy and human friends that she looks forward to seeing because she's met them many times. She walks well on a leash with a Halti, but pulls a bit when she gets excited or finds a new smell. When she is comfortable with her surroundings outside, she'll show you how excited she is with some zoomies!   Willow has a clean bill of health! She's house trained and crate trained, microchipped, spayed, and fully updated on all her shots. She loves car rides, and is very good with vet visits. She's currently in a foster home in Burnaby, where she's been for the last 8 months. Willow wants a home where she can have her own safe space to relax in, with no other pets. Because Willow likes her space, we also recommend no young kids in the home, and an experienced owner. She would thrive in a calm, quiet environment where she can spend lots of quality time with her humans.   See more about Willow’s journey on Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/willow_theakitamix/   For more information on Willow, please email Chris (chrisstefiuk@gmail.com) or Nika's Society (nikassociety@mail.com). show less

**YUMA MUST HAVE A LARGE AND INTERESTING FENCED YARD  Yuma - currently fostered in Langley Breed: German Shepherd mix Age: 2 yr Gender: fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 50 lbs / 22 inches Energy level: moderate Relations: great with dogs once comfortable with them but is likely to do better with small dogs rather than med/large dogs/good with kids/not good with cats Highlites: playful, tripaw, joyful Hi everyone, my name is Yuma. 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. But you would never know I was a tripaw, I am as mobile and active as any of my four-legged friends. I can't go on long steep hikes but normal 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, especially small dogs. I currently live happily with several dogs. But it takes me quite awhile to feel safe with other dogs. It is difficult for a potential adopter to take the time I need to get familiar with their dog. So it is best if I am the only dog in the home. Cats are great fun to chase so I can't live with them either. People are my thing - I just adore them. 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? But when we aren't playing and I am not exploring the yard my favourite thing to do is to lie outside with a chew stick. I am a really easy dog to care for, and to love. City life is a bit too noisy and hectic for me (perhaps it takes me back to my terrible life in the streets), so I would prefer a suburban or rural home. I really love being outside so a large, interesting fenced yard to explore and romp around in is essential for me. 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 other dogs, I can't pull very hard on the leash due to my missing rear leg. While I am a joyful soul,  I am not at all hyper or high energy. At home I am very calm and relaxed. As you can see from my video, I love playing in water. To be honest, I love everything about my new and improved life in Canada. 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
