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. 

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

TOGGI (Mid-East, yo)

Cocker Spaniel

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. Hello! My name is TOGGI (Tofie) and here is some info about me: Breed: Cocker Spaniel/Canaan Dog mix Age: 2.5 yrs Gender: Female Wgt: 12 kg Hgt: 45 cm Rescued from a government slaughterhouse in the Middle East, I have been living at a rescue organization. I’ve been waiting for an entire year for my opportunity to come to Canada and meet my forever family! Unfortunately this reality is all too common for dogs like me in the Middle East. Oh, I am a total love bug! I am calm, easy-going and want nothing more than a good cuddle from my humans. If you show me love and affection, I will become your best friend! While I will need some training, I am smart and eager to please. I love to play with other dogs. I would be the perfect fit for an active family that likes to go for long walks and spend time outside. Energy level: Moderate I Get along with: Dogs - yes Cats - Unknown Kids - yes 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: Unknown, none observed. No signs of aggression noted. Training: None, but I am intelligent and already know not to jump up on people! 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 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: 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. 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. 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. 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

Hello kind hoomans! My name is TRUDY and here is some info about me: PHYSICAL INFO: Breed: Lab/Pointer Mix Age: 10 months (est. DOB: 02/05/2021) Gender: Female Weight: 30 lbs (I'll robably max out around 35-40 lbs) RESCUE STORY - I was rescued along with my sister and 5 other puppies who were all abandoned on the streets as puppies. We were brought to The Ranch Chapala, a local shelter here in Guadalajara, Mexico, where we have been ever since. TEMPERAMENT - I am a fun, social girl who loves attention, especially in the form of tummy rubs! The people who come visit me at The Ranch say that my photos don't do me justice; I am much more fun loving than I appear. I am gentle with both my human and doggy friends. Playing with my sister is one of my favorite things to do, after receiving love and attention, of course, hehe! If you have an active family I bet I'll fit right in and be in the center of all the fun. I am built for Pacific Northwest adventures! ENERGY LEVEL - Moderate - typical puppy energy GETS ALONG WITH: Kids – Unknown Dogs – YES! I currently live with multiple other dogs of all sizes and we get along well. I am a super social girl! Cats – UNKNOWN PREY DRIVE - Unknown. 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 behaviours, should they arise. FEARS - None known! Just a bit shy sometimes. TRAINING: Leash skills – Pretty darn good! House trained – Work in progress! Please be patient with me and help me continue to learn in my forever home. Frequent potty breaks and positive reinforcement will help me learn :) Crate trained - Yup! I am good in a crate. **note LALDR does not recommend leaving a dog in a crate for more than 3 hours** BONUS - I'm good in the car... bring on the roadtrips! 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 and vaccinated (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.

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.

This includes our transportation to Canada, if we are able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.

**I may be able to get a flight to Canada January 23rd if an adopter is found in time!** Hi there! My name is Virat and here is some info about me: PHYSICAL INFO: Whippet/Retriever (Indie mix) 2 years old, DOB January 2020 Male Around 20kg Highlights: Energetic, people pleaser, Tripawd, affectionate RESCUE STORY: I was found abandoned and shivering on the streets during a monsoon with an improperly amputated leg. Once I was rescued, it was amputated properly, but I barely even notice it's gone! I will run and jump around like it's natural. I also have a chunk missing from my ear for some reason, but you wouldn't even notice. I'm a very energetic guy with lots of love to give. I would definitely benefit from some obedience training, and since I'm such a people pleaser, I'm bound to learn fast. Some more things about me: I'm currently on a chicken and rice diet, and I'm leashed trained so I'm good on walks. Since there's no way to test if I have separation anxiety or not, my rescuers are not sure how I would act if left alone.  TEMPERAMENT: ENERGY LEVEL: High GETS ALONG WITH: Kids – UNKNOWN Dogs – YES Cats – NO PREY DRIVE: UNKNOWN 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 behaviours, should they arise. TRAINING: House trained – unknown – I have spent a lot of time in a cage, so please be prepared to help me learn where to go! 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.

Hi, my name is Wacha, I am a 4 year old male Jindo mix that weighs 55 lbs (25 kg) and stands 21 inches high. I was rescued in the summer of 2018 from a dog meat farm in S Korea.  All the dogs there were living in filthy wire cages and being fed human food leftovers.  I was one of the dogs that welcomed the volunteers that were trying to save me every day.  Once I was rescued from the dog meat farm, I was sent to a temporary shelter, I became one of the longest residents there as the rescuers were trying to find the money to put me up for adoption.  Now I am ready for my forever home.  Is that with you? Based on my history, I am a bit shy with strangers and am more comfortable with women than men.  Here is me meeting a stranger who is a female.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsJnybqPlO4&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzDHuEjaVtifYobmos_B2B2&index=1 and me meeting a male.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ht9BwqmWByA&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzDHuEjaVtifYobmos_B2B2&index=2.  Once I get to know someone though, I am full of affection and belly rub requests.   With other dogs, I am usually ok to share the same place if the other dogs are indifferent to me, but I have bitten other dogs twice in the last 3 months.  Basically I don't tolerate dogs that get on my nerves, so a home where I am the only dog is ideal, especially if you are not big on dog parks. Attention is required whenever I meet new dogs.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-LRwAfbitA&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzDHuEjaVtifYobmos_B2B2&index=4.  Meeting a cat, I gently sniffed it and wasn't all that interested.  If the cats are dog experienced or indifferent to me, my handler doesn't think I will make any trouble with cats.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTbfYhCojEU&list=PLIsLTtIpe3JzDHuEjaVtifYobmos_B2B2&index=5.   My handler says I have a lower energy level.  I do enjoy going for walks and am quite confident on a leash regarding urban noises.  When I am indoors I respond to my name if you call me, but I do not respond outdoors, so no off leash for me please.  While I have shown some dog aggression, I have never shown aggression to people.  I don't have a high appetite, and no resource guarding issues, though I do love me some high value treats!  I don't have separation anxiety, and rarely bark.  I can bark at male strangers, but it doesn't last long.  It is important to note that I may have an escape tendency the first few weeks.  When I was brought to the current shelter, I did try to get away.  After I realized this was my place, I adapted well and this tendency went away.  I am comfortable in a kennel and do not get carsick.  The tip of my upper left fang has been slightly broken, only the enamel is fractured, the pulp is not exposed.   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!

ADOPTION FEE: My adoption fee is $650.00 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.

UPDATE: I am now in Canada and I continue to be very loved by my adoptive family. I am very loyal and gentle with the couple who adopted me but I have sometimes found it hard to be patient with their elementary aged kids. I have even nipped at one of the kids when I did not know how to handle myself with them. As a result, my adopters are regretfully seeking another loving adoptive home for me. My new adoptive HOME will be one with ADULTS ONLY. For my new adopters, I will also come with 2 free training sessions with a trainer. You only need 2 words to describe this fella: Gentle Giant!  Hello out there. I am Zeus from Bahrain. I'm a 4 year old Doberman/Rottweiler mix - yeah, I know, it's an impressive combo! I'm 88 lb and 35 inches tall.  The thing is, people tend to have the wrong impression about me. Just because I'm a big Dobie/Rottie doesn't mean I'm a tough nut. That couldn't be further from the truth. In actual fact, I'm a giant cuddle-bug who wouldn't hurt a fly (or a cat!). Probably because of that misguided impression I've spent the past 3 years here at the rescue centre waiting to be adopted. My owners surrendered me back when I was just a year old. I guess I was bigger than they expected and they just didn't want me anymore.  I kept hoping someone would take the time to get to know me and see what a loving, obedient and loyal dog I am. But it hasn't happened... so now I'm placing my trust in Loved At Last to find me a home. I LOVE playing with other dogs and despite my size, I tend to be submissive with them.  It would be fabulous if I ended up in a home with a dog-friend and a yard for us both to play in. I am an energetic dog and would love to be able to run around. Look at me being a silly goofball in this video: https://youtu.be/Ikm_9TFccno. Aren't I such a ham?! I'm even good with cats!! Check out my video - https://youtu.be/lXnSTMpXd38 - who would have thought that you could put a big doggy like me in a room with 10+ cats and I'd be totally chill!  If you're up for it perhaps we could even be jogging buddies. Mind you, I'm a strong boy, so you'd need to feel pretty confident you could manage me; a halti might help with that.  Have I mentioned how much I adore people and have a special place in my heart for those that give me belly rubs?  Ah, what I wouldn't give to be part of a family who would give me belly rubs every day ((https://youtu.be/Lcl3XVWrxUE)) I loveeeee the belly rubs!! I hope that doesn't make me sound like I'm high maintenance. Really I'm not. Just some affection is what I long for. That, and to know that I finally have a home. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $500 CAD + applicable taxes includes my airfare to Canada. *Note: because I have had tick fever in the past I will require an annual course of Doxycycline as a preventative measure.   Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website,  http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/  and to 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 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. ZUMA, bonded with PUMA Breed: Age: 1-1/2 yrs, mid Dec 2019 bd Gender: fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 40 lbs / tbd inches Energy level: moderate Relations: disinterest in other dogs / unknown cats and kids Highlights: loving, bold, confident Region: Oman I am very loving and tend to be the bold one between me and my sister, Puma. In Feb of 2020, a rescuer noticed a mother dog with 8 puppies and two other adult dogs hiding out in an empty lot by a main road in the Middle East. They decided it was time to rescue us, as our mother seemed to be chasing passing cars and us pups were venturing out. After a month, they caught 7 of us puppies. Our last sibling ran off with mom and the other two adult dogs. My sister Puma  & I were the only 2 girls. All our 5 brothers found homes elsewhere abroad. A lady agreed to foster to adopt us ASAP, and whenever the rescuer checked on us, we seemed fine. We used to play with her son (we're good with kids), but months later when a check-up was done, the lady told the rescuer that she moved us to her friend's farm and that we lived outdoors. Fast forward to July 2021, a few weeks back the lady said that the farm is closing, the owners are selling it and they don't want dogs there. Additionally, the lady lost her job and she didn't want us back. So she called our rescuer to come get us. She then left the country. Our rescuer was absolutely shocked seeing us when she went to pick us up. We were just skin and bones and my sis had an eye infection. We were both very dusty and clearly lived a tough life there. We're so glad our rescuer came for us. We're doing much better now and are currently being fostered by a volunteer, who is giving us good food and much needed love. I am gaining muscle weight and my health has improved greatly. I do great with my sister, but the only time I have interacted with another dog was at the vet and I seemed okay, not really very interested actually. Never been around cats or kids, except that first lady's son, so likely good with kids. I'm good with people by nature. I know a few commands like sit and shake. I'm clearly the more confident sibling and will walk ahead & eat first. I will push my sister out of the way if someone is paying attention to her instead, but it is in the most non-aggressive way. I care for my sister. I even cared for her licking her eyes when she had an eye infection. I really want to stay together with her, as she needs my support. I'd like a moderately active family to do things with. Hiking would be super. A yard would be far preferable to have. Most of all, I'd love a home where my sister and I could be together. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. Our adoption fee is $1400.00 CAD + applicable taxes for both of us. 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.

Bordatella is not given, as that has not been a problem in the Middle East.  show less
