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

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. A heartfelt hello. My name is KALI and here is a little info about me: Breed: Shepard (German Shep/Anatolian Shep)/Saluki mix Age: 2-1/2 yrs Gender: male Weight: 28 kg Height: 70 cm STATUS: My rescuer's Mom, who is my foster, just had a serious medical condition come up, so is needing to spend time in the hospital. So I really need a home asap. As a puppy I got sick. So my owner threw me onto the streets in the Middle East. Sick and weak (because they didn’t want to put money and energy into my recovery), I was unlikely to survive. A rescuer found me and started my treatment. Now I am a healthy boy. I am super friendly, even with people I don’t know. I'm a pretty social guy too, very kind hearted. I listen very well and am a smart character. My responsiveness should lend well to training. I am energetic and like hugs and kisses. I am working on my leash skills, it's a work in progress. I can get excited when I see the leash. Probably a home with a non-alpha dog is best, as I like to be the leader. Or I can be an only dog too. Though I would like friends to play with. No clue about cats, but kids are fun. Hoping you have sone special activities we can do together. I'd love taking walks or hikes with you. Energy Level: moderate I get along with: Dogs: yes, but I want to say that I am the boss Cats: unknown Kids: yes Prey drive: unknown/not observed. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown/none observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition Training: some Leash skills: in progress. Please be prepared to continue training. House trained: Working on it. 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 couple weeks 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 $400.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.

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.

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.

Unfortunately, due to regulations introduced 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 Kallina (Kally) and here is a little info about me: Breed: Terrier mix Age: 11 mo Gender: female Weight: 17 kg Height: 55 cm When I was younger, I was living with a kind man who was financially struggling and didn’t have a permanent place to live. A few months ago, when I was playing outside, a mean driver tried to kill me with his car. He drove over my legs... twice! One of my legs and my pelvis were crushed. I was in so much pain, but my dad didn't have the money to take me to the vet. Instead, he had to give me to a kind man who agreed to pay for my surgery. Surgeons repaired my leg and pelvis using rods. After a long period of treatment, physiotherapy, and a lot of bravery, I am finally able to walk again. Unfortunately, I can never walk and run like I used to, but that hasn’t changed my positive attitude! It would be really helpful if my future family gave me a leg/foot support brace to help me walk and a bootie for protection! I look forward to going on slow, steady walks with my future family (see video.) All the pain in my life has not deterred me from loving people, and even smaller animals! Currently, I live in a house with 21 cats (can you believe it?) I love them, but they are mean to me sometimes. So my foster family has to keep me in a small room most of the time. I really hope to get adopted soon, so I can have a whole house or apartment to explore, a bed to cuddle on, and possibly even a yard! My name, Kallina, means “love and affection,” which you will find is a very apt description of me once you take me home! I love cuddling so much, I hope to find a home where I can get as much affection as I give. If you’re looking for your new best friend and cuddle buddy, look no further. I can’t wait to meet you! I am a very quiet and gentle girl. When I meet new humans, I get so excited and friendly, my tail starts wagging like crazy! My rescuer has described me as a kind and wonderful dog – brave, loyal, easy to train, energetic, and alert! The best possible home is one who is willing to take into account my minor disability and accomodate for it. Maybe one with another animal to be buddies with would be cool. But most especially one that likes to be with me as much as I like to hang out with them.

I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes.

Please note potential additional costs for me to get to you near the bottom of my profile. Unfortunately, due to recently introduced CDC regulations, dogs from [China/Middle East] can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore [dog] is only available to Canadian residents. Due to current travel restrictions related to COVID-19, there may be a long delay before I can get to you. Please only apply for me if you are prepared to wait. Hi there! My name is Kami and here is some info about me: Breed: Golden/Anatolian Mix  Age: 3 years old  Gender: Male Weight: 25 Kg My story starts from the day that my rescuer found me on the street among other street dogs. He knew I was abandoned since I knew some of the basic tricks. Unfortunately, during COVID a lot of people in Iran started to abandon their pets and leave them on street…sadly I was one of them. During the time I was left on streets I developed some skin sickness and also my had got broken. When my rescuer saved my life, he took me to vet, and I got treated for my skin and also my hand got healed however I still can not put my hand on the ground and it healed not in the right shape, I might need to do physio or surgery in the future so please be aware of that. I am a lucky one I know because he found me. I am very afraid of wooden sticks or anything similar that might trigger my memory from the time I was homeless. My amazing rescuer/foster taught me potty training. I also know some basic tricks like “no bark” or “come here”.  Please stay tuned for my vids to come :)  I am, shy but happy and affectionate boy. My energy level is moderate. I get along with other dogs and also with cats. 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 behaviors, should they arise. I am not leash trained.  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. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. Due to ongoing limits on Vancouver (YVR) flights, additional fees will apply if I have to fly through another city. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada range from $275-$500 per dog (size depending). LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs. NOTE: once I find a family, I will be on the first available flight out of the Middle East seeing as I need to leave here ASAP! If a direct flight to Vancouver is not immediately available, the cost to fly me via unaccompanied cargo from Montreal/Toronto to Vancouver will not be optional. If you would like to increase the chance of me coming sooner, my 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.

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. Halloooooo Canadaaaaaa. My name is KATOON and here is a little info about me: Breed: Husky Age: 1-1/2 yrs Gender: Female Weight: 22 kg Height: 65 cm STATUS: My foster, who is my rescuer's Mom, just had a serious medical condition come up and needs to spend time in the hospital. So I really need a home asap.  Used as a breeding dog in the Middle East, my owner just used me to sell puppies. After I had an ectopic pregnancy, that owner threw me outside. My rescuer found me on the street thinking that I might be pregnant. When the rescuer took me to the vet, she realized that I was not actually pregnant though. I was super weak at the time, as I had been without food and water for days. I am a kind and social pup. Both playful and energetic, though not hyper. You will find I listen very well. I do well with other dogs, as well as kids. Not sure about cats. Being a husly, we tend to like to chase, but hard to say how I would react to one. An active household would suit me. Getting out hiking or running along a beach sounds wonderful. We don't get that chance in my country. Having kids around would brighten my day or another dog as a playmate works too. But if not, I'm sure we could meet some new buddies for playdates. Energy Level: Moderate I get along with: Dogs: yes Cats: unknown Kids: yes Prey drive: unknown/not observed. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown/none observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition Training: some Leash skills: In progress. Please be prepared to continue training. House trained: yes and working to improve it. Please be prepared to help me learn where to go in my new home! Health notes: I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $400.00 CAD plus applicable taxes.

UPDATE: I am Koa and I am intelligent, loving, and playful. In addition, in my core, I am a guard dog. I firmly believe that it is my job to defend my home and family. When I first came to Canada I was nervous and reactive to strangers and some dogs, but I have been living in a foster home with several other dogs and getting to meet lots of new people and I now warm to strangers fairly quickly (though I seem to find big bearded men a bit scary at first, so please be patient with me). I enjoy being around other dogs, especially those that like playing with me.  Check out the video to see me playing with one of my foster sisters here. I need a dog that is my match in play style, namely, I play with considerable energy so it can appear quite rough. If I am in the company of dogs that are fearful, I will try to fight them. This is something I am continuing to work on to correct. When such an interaction occurs, I will not stop unless a human separates us. A trigger for my aggression is being left at home with other dogs but without my human. My energy escalates and when my human returns, I am so revved up that I can't stop myself from venting it on another dog. Once I feel safe with someone, I am a cuddly, playful pup who loves my humans very much. In short, a safe, gentle, and calm introduction of anybody new in my life is MANDATORY. If not properly introduced and given time to warm up to new people, I will bark, circle, and nip strangers who I am frightened of, which is everyone who hasn't been introduced to me. While I do have considerable energy and enjoy running around outside, dog parks are not for me. They are just too busy and over-stimulating but my good recall means you can take me hiking off-leash once we've bonded. My foster dad has taken me on lots of trail hikes and says I am such a good hiking companion. I don't seem to have a high prey drive so I'm comfortable around some cats but they are not all to my liking so they need to be considered on an individual basis. I have visited a farm with those weird creatures like cows, goats and sheep. I was very calm and happy there so I might be an ideal dog for an adopter with a farm but please, no chickens or rabbits. They just look too much like dinner! Because I am a dog who can be a bit vocal (I enjoy guarding the yard here by barking at people), I'm not a good apartment dog. Please come and meet me so I can show you what a good dog I am. My ideal home would be a rural property with few new visitors. The family can be of any size but for safety reasons, no children please. I need to have room for me to run and play outside but also to have a big cozy bed for me to snooze on. I am still a young dog and love to play and seek adventure... but I do love a good post-exercise snooze sesh! I would love a home with another dog who I get along with but that is likely going to be a hard match to find so will have to be approached slowly. I am spayed and vaccinated. My adoption fee is $750. 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 CDC regulations, dogs from [China/Middle East] can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore [dog] is only available to Canadian residents. • Due to current travel restrictions related to COVID-19, there may be a long delay before I can get to you. Please only apply for me if you are prepared to wait. Hi there! My name is kopol and here is some info about me: PHYSICAL INFO: Breed: anatolian shepherd//lab cross  Age: 1.5  years Gender: female Weight: 55  lbs  Height : approx 20  inches Hi everyone, my name is kopol and I am a beautiful Anatolian Shepherd, lab cross. My rescue mom called me kopol which means “chubby” in farsi because I live for food! Yum yum! I was rescued when I was only a few days old. The authorities had killed my poor mom and all my siblings. My rescue mom found me beside my mom’s body curled up into a ball waiting for her to wake up. I don’t know how I got so lucky to have dodged the bullet (literally) but I am grateful for getting a second chance in life everyday.  When I was just a little puppy living with my rescue mom at the shelter, I got distemper disease. Of course I fully recovered but I have a very minor tick on the left side of my face and left leg that you only notice when I am sleeping. My rescue mom says I am one of the most loving dogs she has ever seen. I may be a big girl but in my mind, I strongly believe that I am a lap dog! I love to be carried around if you have the strength to pick me up. I can even jump into your arms and wrap my legs around your neck if you open your arms and invite me in for a hug. I should also mention that I love to dance. I could listen to music all day long and wiggle my tail and have a dance off! Oh how I love all my furry brothers and sisters. I play with them all day long. I even share my food with my cat brothers and sisters. My rescue mom says that I do not have a single mean bone in my body and that I am the dream girl!  I love attention and would never say no to a belly or head rub. My energy level is moderate to high and it would be a dream of mine to find a forever home with maybe a backyard and another furry brother or sister I can play with. My rescue mom says that I appreciate the little things in life. She has been practicing on lead walks with me and every time we go for walks, I stop and smell the flowers, listen to the birds and take it all in. I love meeting new people big or small and of course I love meeting new dog friends on my walks. My rescue mom calls me her golden child and as much as she would want me to stay, it is time for me to fly  the nest and find my forever family so that my rescue mom can help other dogs in need. I am so looking forward to meeting my forever loving family and I promise I will bring nothing but joy and happiness to your life if you are willing to give me a chance.  TEMPERAMENT • I am one happy go lucky girl who loves all people, big or small. I may be a little shy when I first  meet you. I mean, a 40+ hour flight and all the new faces and the unknown environment can be very scary for a dog. With love and patience, I will learn to trust you and be the sweet loving girl that I am. • I have never displayed any type of aggression towards people or my furry siblings. I am always kind and welcome new friends in my life. • I love receiving affection.  If you are willing to give me a little time to get to know you, I promise, I will give you everything I have to give.  ENERGY LEVEL: Moderate/high, By nature, I am very calm but given that I am still only 1.5 years old, I would love my walks,  playtime and outdoor activities. My goal is to always be in good shape and stay healthy.  I think, once I learn how to play with doggy toys or fetch the ball, it would be so much fun if we could have play sessions together! I can’t wait! GETS ALONG WITH:  Kids - UNKNOWN, even though I used to live with little humans at the shelter, my rescue mom didn't take any pictures of me with them!  Dogs – OH YES  Cats  – OH YES PREY DRIVE: None noted whatsoever but I have never seen a squirrel, I may end up chasing one to say hello. FEARS:  My rescue mom has always treated me with love and respect therefore, I have never had a reason to be fearful. I may be a little nervous due to travel and new surroundings but in time, with love and patience and support, I will be back to being my happy self. TRAINING:Leash skills – work in progress! I will need some training to master walking on leash. Walking off leash is off limits for the time being till I learn my new ways.  House trained – unknown– You see, I live at the shelter where we freely roam around. I go pee outside, but I have never lived in a house so please be prepared to help me learn because my rescue mom is super busy and has no time to train all of us. I know how to pee on a pad and I may even know how to not pee inside. If not, I promise you that I will master peeing outside in no time! I am also very smart and eager to learn. My rescue mom cares for over 100 dogs at the shelter and does not have much time to show me any tricks, but I am so eager and willing to learn some tricks, especially if there is food involved!  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 have been spayed, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. I have a clean bill of health and other than my little tick there is nothing wrong with me!  ADOPTION FEE:My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. Due to ongoing limits on Vancouver (YVR) flights, additional fees will apply if I have to fly through another city. Unaccompanied Cargo costs within Canada range from $275-$500 per dog (size depending). LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs. NOTE: once I find a family, I will be on the first available flight out of the Middle East seeing as I need to leave here ASAP! If a direct flight to Vancouver is not immediately available, the cost to fly me via unaccompanied cargo from Montreal/Toronto to Vancouver will not be optional.If you would like to increase the chance of me coming sooner, my 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.

Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from Lebanon can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents. Helloooooo Canadaaaaa! My name is Kyros and here is some info about me: Breed: American Pitbull Terrier Age: 5-1/2 years Gender: male Weight: 28 kgs/ 61lbs Height: tbd Witnesses saw me being dumped from a car on a busy highway. Terribly shameful thing for someone to do. Thank goodness my rescuer saved me. After my rescue, my old owner was identified and my rescuer discovered that I’ve lived most of my life (5 years) tied outside a garage through winter and summer. Horrible again. I got adopted shortly after (6 months) and unfortunately my owner passed away due to a sudden heart attack. So sad. We were great together and he was helping me learn. After that, I have been placed in a paid boarding facility, where I am extremely depressed and barely eating. I am an extremely loyal and protective dog. I often get depressed and stop eating if I am not with a human for a long period of time. I warm up to people very quickly and love to bond with humans. I stay close to my human and give them a lot of sloppy kisses and love. I can be trained easily once I trust the person, you just need to find my motivation (usually vocal and physical praise.) I was initially reactive towards all dogs, but with training and some socialization from my previous owner, I was able to approach female dogs in a playful way without reacting. See my video. Though still not friendly with male dogs at all (have a bite history with a male dog). I will never be the dog who can be left off-leash in a park, but with proper training and leadership, I can be a very good dog and companion! Through the work my owner had done, I can walk past barking male dogs (with a secure fence separating us) without flinching (before I was adopted, I used to lunge and pull right away), but if one of them crosses a line and annoys me, I will still lunge and snap at them. If my training is resumed, I'm sure I can improve further. I showed definite improvement with someone taking the time to work with me. The best home would be one without young children or other pets. I will do well with 1.5 hours of walking per day and around 30 minutes of running or tug play. It would be ideal to be in a home with a fenced space for off-leash play, since I cannot be left with other dogs. It would be grand if I could go to a Pitbull knowledgeable home. ENERGY LEVEL: Moderate I GET ALONG WITH: Dogs, ok with females (on leash only) and not friendly at all with males. Cats, unknown, but not likely Kids, unknown. I greet kids (7-10 yrs) during walks, but have never lived with one. I seem friendly and kind with them during walks. PREY DRIVE: High FEARS: none that my rescue mom knows of! I do get jumpy if someone does a lot of sudden movements around me due to my abusive history. TRAINING: some Leash skills – I am leash reactive, so wil need continued work on this. My previous owner was teaching me how to walk nicely on the leash, but I still pull a lot! House trained – I was in a home before, but need a refresher! Other tricks – sit and stay HEALTH NOTES: I am a healthy boy. I am fully vaccinated and neutered. I am also microchipped! My adoption fee is $650.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. I would likely fly through Montreal, see extra costs below.

Hi everyone, my name is Laboo. I am a 3 year old, 18 lb, Maltese/Miniature Poodle mix who is just about the happiest dog you will ever meet. Despite having been abused in my previous life in the middle east, I am a very joyful and confident pup who has lots of personality. My spirit was never broken by the neglect I faced there. I have spent the past year in a wonderful home where I was much loved and well cared for. But my owner was no longer able to keep me due to serious health problems. So I find myself homeless once again. For about the first month that I was a in my foster home, I would bite my foster mom if she tried to handle me by picking me up or even petting me. Changing homes is very stressful for me. But she just left me alone and eventually I found myself trusting her and have stopped biting her entirely. I am even okay with strangers petting me. So my new owner just has to give me the space and time I need to feel safe. I currently live happily live with several dogs. I love playing with other dogs and have never met one I didn't like. I have never reacted with aggression towards another dog, even if another dog acts aggressively towards me. I am a player, not a fighter. My favourite game is "chase me". I will race around like the wind trying to get the other dogs to chase after me. One of the dogs in my foster home is Temo. He and I are best buddies and play with each other all the time. He is a highly traumatized dog who has a history of terrible abuse. He was pretty much shut down when I met him. But I have helped bring him out of his shell and start to heal. He really needs me to help recover from his PTSD. So we need to be adopted together.  It will be a very special person who will adopt the two of us. Temo also needs to be left alone once he moves to a new home as he will also bite in the beginning if he is touched. But it will take him much longer than me to relax and feel safe. After two months in our foster home, Temo is now jumping up onto our foster mom's lap. He has come along way for the dog who was afraid to leave his crate. But he still can't be touched so the angel who saves us both will need to be very patient with him. Temo and I love to play outside so a fenced yard is very important to us. On off leash walks, I love zipping around and exploring. But I will always come back and check in with you so I am awesome on off leash hikes. Once we are back home though, I am calm and relaxed and happy to just hang out with you. I love affection and very much enjoy hanging out in a warm lap. Like all dogs, I don't much like being left alone at home and will bark for a minute or two after you leave. But then I settle down and become quiet and am not at all destructive. I have been in doggie daycare and did just great there. In fact I was a big hit and was the popular guy who all the other dogs wanted to play with, a testament to my incredible charisma and charm. Because I don't like being handled for the first few weeks, I'm not a dog who can live with young kids who might treat me like a toy and handle me roughly. But living with older kids who will treat me gently and with respect would be fine. I adore people so the more the merrier as far as I am concerned.  It isn't known how I am with cats but it is suspected I wouldn't hurt one but might get right in their face to try and get them to play. Or I may completely ignore them. I can be tested with cats if someone applies for me who has one.   Temo and I are dreaming of the amazing person who will see the two of us and know that we need them to rescue us and give us a safe and loving home.  Our adoption fee together is $750. We are vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. show less

Hello. My name is Lady and here is a little info about me: Breed: Husky Age: 4 years old Gender: female Weight: 50 pounds Height: 88 cm BIG BONUS: I am now living locally in Greater Vancouver so approved adopters can actually meet me! My parents got me from a breeder in the Middle East. The took care of me very well. My dad is a dog trainer and I learned to be a great companion. My parents loved me so much that when the law in my country changed and the government could take me away from my family, my dad desperately looked for where he could send me to save me from this dangerous law. A kind passenger brought me to Canada and he wanted to keep me. Unfortunately, he is busy and travels a lot, so can't take care of me anymore. I need a kind family (yes, I am good with kids!) who wants a companion and who is excited about guiding us both in exploring the world. I am cuddly and loyal. I will be right there for you! I tend to be quiet, although I am also outgoing. As most huskies are, I am a clever dog who learns quickly. Here is a video of me having eye drops put in. I seem to understand that they are good for me so I am quite cooperative - https://youtube.com/shorts/o_LlcCuhQFs?feature=share. Of course my preference is for cuddle time with humans - https://youtube.com/shorts/aBVPiYmgff4?feature=share  An ideal home scenario would be one with a fenced back yard in which I can romp around. Also, I am an active dog, so lots of walks would be just great with me! Hiking would be even better! I also like meeting other dogs so it will be fine if I have a canine companion in my new home. Here is a video of me being social with a couple of other dogs - https://youtube.com/shorts/xGzqan39SLs?feature=share  My prey drive is fairly high, so I will likely need a bit of training to help me not chase squirrels and other wild creatures. I am not opposed to having kids or another dog in my new home, however. I have no evident fears to date, but please be patient with me if all of the changes in my life result in me needing a bit of training. Energy Level: Moderate Good with: dogs, kids, but no cats please. Prey drive: Moderate to high. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: unknown/none observed. Please be patient assisting me during my transition. Training: some Leash skills: in progress. I get excited when I see the leash. Please be prepared to continue training. House trained: Yes. Please help me learn where to go in my new home! 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!

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. LEILEI Breed: Husky Age: 2 yrs Gender: fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 44 lbs / almost 20 inches Energy level: moderate Relations: good with dogs /unknown cats & kids Highlights: curious, playful, friendly Region: Middle East Children: Jiggs & Roseberry Poke, poke... whatcha doin'?, whatcha doin'? I'm a bit nosy and want to know what yer up to. Curious in a friendly way, I am. I like to check everything out. I was found pregnant on the streets in the Middle East. My rescuer is fostering me and my puppies until we find our homes in that special, far off land of Canadaaaaa. Oh, it sounds so lovely and musical. It would be so great to be able to romp along a shoreline or out in a forest. I am good with other dogs. Never had introduction to any kitties though. Nor children. But being a husky, we love people, period. And being goofy and talking and are smart. My 2 puppies are also being posted. Be pretty neat if we could meet up once in a while. If you have a yard, that would be the ultimate, but if not, as long as we got plenty of outdoor adventures, it's all good. Another dog in the home already? Score. Bonus points for someone to play with. But again, not required. I'm sure we could be best buds too. My rescuer says all of us are very well mannered and good at different things like shaking paws, as well as commands. 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 from Montreal or Toronto will not be optional.

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. Hi there. My name is Leonora and here is a little info about me: Breed: Dachshund/Spitz mix Age: 2 yrs Gender: Female Weight: 4.5 kg Height: tbd Rescued from an abusive situation in the Middle East, I had been injured. My rescuer got me in for surgery. I currently can't walk without help now. I am doing physiotherapy (hydrotherapy) and am on my way to doing better. My doctor said about 50% of my ability to walk could come back. I have some present movement in my front legs, but my rear is disabled. Currently I am doing hydrotherapy. I am eager to please and to learn. You will find me very calm, but also shy. I'm great with humans, as well as other dogs and cats. I am kind and love to be petted https://youtu.be/rZc74xx46Pg, https://youtube.com/shorts/a2rwouYSOAk. I will kiss my humans to show how much I love them. I can be lazy, but am funny too. Though I can be nervous, I am not sensitive to sound. I may need slow intro to men sometimes. Since it is illegal for dogs to walk outside in my country, the outside environment is a bit scary, thus I prefer to stay inside. Maybe if you have a grassy yard, I would learn it is nice to be out though. Though I lack confidence, I am pretty adaptable and can be happy with a new situation quickly. If you have another dog who can help me settle in, that'd be great. I am fine as an only dog too though. If you are willing to work to help me regain some mobility, I will be your bestest buddy ever. More great vids:  https://youtu.be/Xzrw_jtUssI, https://youtube.com/shorts/g18IECCUNP8, https://youtube.com/shorts/GBz4G4ny840, https://youtube.com/shorts/hpce7QLwL7k Energy Level: Low I get along with: Dogs: yes Cats: yes Kids: unknown Prey drive: low. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise. Fears: I am scared of the outside environment. I can sometimes be scared of men. Training: yes Leash skills: yes, I can walk with a leash and wheelchair (but I will need a wheelchair there.) House trained: Yes, I have control over her my faculties, and all you need to do is help me to get outside for my business. Health notes: mobility issue. I can't walk on my own presently. I will need to continue physiotherapy (hydrotherapy) for about another month (through June.)  Unknown if a vet there will decide if there are any other helps for me. I am vaccinated. Spaying has been postponed, until I recover from my surgery and spend more time in physiotherapy. My spay will be the responsibility of my adopter should I be adopted before the vet deems I can be here. Spaying is required for my adoption to be finalized. My adoption fee is $650.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.

Our rescuer gave us food and took care of us she had to take us home because other neighbors called cops on us to take us somewhere to destroy us, can you believe it? Thanks to our rescuer saving our lives. I can be cautious around strangers, until I get to know them. I will sit in a corner and observe them for a while. A good solution to this is a gentle voice and treats. Then I will start to come out of my shell and warm up to them. I’m a very handsome boy, who is good with other dogs. I am housetrained, big plus.
