Loved at Last Dog Rescue

Langley, BC, Langley, BC, V4W 1M6

Shelter Description

Loved at Last Dog Rescue is a a Vancouver, BC based, non-profit organization which re-homes stray dogs from developing countries to adoptive homes in the local area. Most of these dogs live short, difficult lives, each new day a challenge to find enough food to stay alive while trying to avoid people intent on torturing or killing them. The lucky ones are rescued, restored to health and rehabilitated where necessary by compassionate individuals who then reach out to Loved At Last for help finding them loving homes in Canada. All of our dogs are treated for any injuries and illnesses, are spayed or neutered and vaccinated. Many of them will have a missing limb that had to be amputated to save their lives. When they are ready to travel and a home has been found for them, they are flown to Vancouver to start their new and much improved lives.We do not have a physical shelter.

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 foster1.laldr@gmail.com     Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue. Normally, we will not approve applications to homes with children under 12 years of age. More information can be found on our website. show less

I am Alexi. If you're in the Seattle / greater Seattle area, please keep reading! If you have a big heart and love cuddles, I could be the one for you!  I am a cute terrier mix and maybe Berger Picard (around 10kg and 3.5 years old) and if you take a look into my deep brown eyes and my large muppet ears, you might quickly fall in love. We are looking to keep me in the Seattle / North Seattle area, as I'm really bonded to my foster Mom, and would need a slow transition. Also, you could think of adopting me as possibly a part time share, my foster Mom would like to stay in my life, help out and dog sit, if that would be okay with you. Feel free to reach out for more information if you're truly interested, and you can chat with my current Mama. You can contact us through this rescue group or even send my foster Mom a message on my Instagram account - info below. I was found by some kind people in an abandoned building, paralyzed in all four of my limbs. - Trust me, I'm a survivor!  The good news - I am now in a loving foster home, just North of Seattle, and have had an MRI. My c5-c6 is injured, which has caused paralysis in my four limbs. My foster mama has done a tremendous amount of work with me to make me stronger.  At this point I can not sit, stand or walk by myself and my bladder gets expressed about 4 times a day. I don't wear diapers, and I have a normal 2x daily bowel movement. I'm one of the few paralyzed dogs that doesn't need to wear diapers! Since the time I've been in foster care, my whole body has become stronger. Six months after I arrived here, my back legs started to "wake up," it was amazing! I now go on daily walks / tows in my cart (see my videos, or check out my IG account). Once my cart starts to get pulled in a forward motion, my rear legs follow (most days, though I do have stubborn days too). Currently I walk 1/4-1/2 a mile daily, sometimes more! I can't steer very well, because of my injury I tend to go left quite often. I move my front shoulders, but my front paws haven't woke up. My days consist of cart walks, park visits, exercises, cuddles and snoozing. Once I get my walk, I'm usually ready for cuddles and a nap. I LOVE to take naps with my human.  You may follow along my adventures here, which I now share with my foster sibling who was also rescued from this organization: https://www.instagram.com/rescuedgypsy/ People have started a go fund me page.  http://www.gofundme.com/help-alexi   I also now have an Amazon.com wish list of my very own! https://amzn.to/2I3kT9v   I always so excited to go outside, and enjoy the fresh air! Sometimes that is in my cart, or my special backpack. Every time my human comes to give me love I do the wiggles and sometimes I sing to her. I know it will take a special person to give me a forever home, but I believe this world is full of special people. I already found one of them and she's my foster mom. If dreams come true, my next special person is reading this right now and lives close to my foster family! I'd love a family who has a nice doggy friend for me, and someone who is home often. I like to be around my humans, in the same room, and outside on adventures. My forever human should be physically fit and will continue my care. If you live near me, my current Mama will go through my routines with you, including my favorite places to visit.  I live with two cats, sometimes I'm not bothered by them, but sometimes I growl and bark (can you blame me, I am part terrier). I'd prefer a home without small children, and any older children need to be kind, gentle and patient. Once I know you, and you sit and give me treats for a couple of minutes I earn your trust. When I'm out on my walks in my cart, I very rarely bark, though I will do a high pitch happy bark when I see a dog that peeks my interest! I would thrive to be in a home with another gentle and playful dog. Having another loving dog around really has helped my motivation and my happiness. I am also not neutered and need to stay that way. I need my hormones to help me get stronger.  I know it will take a special person to give me a forever home, but I believe you are out there somewhere and when we find each other both our lives will grow bigger with love.

Breed: Bichon Frise mix, male Age: 1 year Weight/height: 12lb /12 inches Character: Super friendly, attention-loving   Hi from South Korea. I am Alfie, the most adorable and outgoing little guy you could hope to meet. It may surprise you to know that I was found as a stray (who let’s a dog like me go wandering off on the streets?) and taken to the big city pound. I was scheduled for the big “E” (let’s not even say the word!), but thank goodness, someone realized I was meant to spread my love around and they saved me, just in time. If you have been looking for the kind of dog who will fit easily into your life, then I am the one for you. I am friendly with everyone and I just love children. Especially when they want to give me lots of attention. Being the centre of attention is one of my greatest joys! With other dogs I am confident and friendly and I love to play with smaller dogs like me. I have been introduced to cats and would love to make friends with them – in a good way! Even the grumpy cat who took a swipe at me, seemed like friend material to me. Going for walks is another one of my favourite things; I would say I’m fairly energetic, so I hope you like to walk too. To sum up, I am a happy, bubbly, friendly little dog who is seeking a loving family of my own.  Are you out there?   I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 includes my airfare to Canada.

Hello, hello, it's me, Amy, the ultimate social butterly.  I am a one year old Spitz/Pomeranian mix from South Korea. I'm told you will want to know how big I am. Well I weigh 17pounds and measure 12 inches to my shoulders. When I was found on the streets of Pyeongtaek city I was taken to the pound. It's known as a high-kill shelter since they don't give you very long there before you're put on the 'red list'.  Luckily for me, my friendly nature and ever-wagging tail, caught the eye of a kind volunteer who got me out of there in time. Now I'm safe at a small rescue center until you send for me. I am the kind of dog who adores being around people. I have no fear of strangers and in fact I relish meeting new people. I'm just a natural extrovert and will pretty much offer my belly to anyone!  I find children adorable and I get really enthusiastic with my kisses and tail wags whenever I meet them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPx2V_tCoK8&list=PL3UlJJYID8eFi6WmZpKY56YOAugM4pr6g&index=4 My sociable nature extends to other dogs too and I do my best to make friends with all of them, though I totally respect those that would prefer to keep to themselves. Watching me at the dog park is like watching the popular kid in the school yard - everyone wants to be my friend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1JtYjuuUck&list=PL3UlJJYID8eFi6WmZpKY56YOAugM4pr6g&index=3 My carers here noticed I was sneezing a lot and the vet determined I probably have allergies. They prescribed an anti-histamine which seems to have done the trick. It's something I thought I'd tell you about in case I start sneezing again sometime. When I was introduced to a cat I was a little curious but quite gentle so I could probably live with a cat if you have one in your home.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7q2xs1QLv8&list=PL3UlJJYID8eFi6WmZpKY56YOAugM4pr6g&index=6 While I really enjoy going for walks, my energy level is just about average and my favourite thing of all is to be around people, so I'd enjoy going to a dog-friendly workplace, or spending time with you at home.   I think your life has room to add about 17 pounds of canine love to it, don't you?   I am spayed, vaccinated and mircrochipped and my adoption fee of $550 includes my airfare to Canada.

Greetings from Apachee! I’m a handsome two-year old lab/pittie mix pup from Bahrain. I weigh 55 pounds and stand about 25 inches tall. Not to be biased or anything… but I’m pretty darn awesome, and oh-so cute! A little while ago I was found as a stray. A kind-soul saw me and called Bahrain Animal Rescue Centre (BARC). Soon enough, my rescuers came and picked me up and I’ve been at the shelter ever since. Boy do they ever love me here! I love people and I’m GREAT with kids (check out my videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yZKWbAbXB8&feature=youtu.be). Look at all those kids surrounding me… and all I do is stand patiently and wag my tail like the very good boy I am. I get along well with other dogg-o’s, however I’m a young lad so I may play a bit rough some times. I haven’t been tested with cats, so I’m not sure how I’d do around the furry meowy creatures.   As a young, energetic dude, I’d love to have an active family to call my own and it would be SWEEET if they had a backyard for me to run around in. Ahhh I can see it now: days spent sniffing the fresh Canadian grass, feeling the cool breeze through my soft fur, doggy zoomies around my yard, perhaps chasing a ball… OOH add in some belly rubs and yummy treats… WOW, yeah that sounds gooooood! Looking for a four-legged companion? Want lots of doggy kisses and active adventures? Look no further, please adopt me! I promise to repay you with tail wags and unconditional love!   I am neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped.

Name: Apple (Angela) Breed(s): Galgo (Spanish Greyhound)/Lab Age: 1 yr Gender: Fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 35 lbs / 26 inches  Activity level: medium-high Relations: good with dogs & children / unknown cats  Highlights: great with kids, highly intelligent, persevering, separation anxiety, escape artist Confined spaces and locked doors, these are common obstacles for any canine. Today, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the one dog that has broken those barriers through intelligence. From far lands, also called the Middle East, I give you Appledini... I’d like to start with a question, has anybody ever been locked or left alone behind a closed door? I bet the answer is yes, unpleasant situation. I’ve had my own share of bad experiences, but being in a confined space or a locked room for a long time isn’t one of them. I’ve become a master of the art of escaping any place at which I might be left alone, and using a key to open doors is also part of my repertoire. Now you might be wondering how is it possible a dog can develop such amazing abilities. It’s a part of my mystery… well… in fact, they’re the result of the difficult things I’ve had to go through.  I’ve experienced horrifying things from being abused by a drug addict who hurt me with a heated stick (hence the marks on my skin) to almost being strangled to death by insane men who wanted to hang me.  Fortunately, the amazing abilities I acquired to get away from danger and of course with the help of my wonderful assistants, whom some people call rescuers, have helped me stay alive up to this day. And I love magic, but despite being a popular escape artist, I dislike being left alone. I live for the audience, so I have a very bad time when I’m not surrounded by people. Separation anxiety, I’ve heard it’s called. Even in my darkest times, there have always been humans around to help me; maybe that’s why I don’t like being by myself nor confined. I’d be the happiest if I lived in a home with a loving family. However, since there are no foster parents for dogs my size in these lands, I’m currently living in a kennel facility and I hate it. It makes me so stressed that the so-called anxiety isn’t getting any better, and it has started to also mess with my wizardry. So would you help me? I’m good with dogs and great with kids, they make just the perfect assistants. They saved me from strangulation twice, how could I not love them?  All you have to do to be a part of the most amazing show you’ll ever find is to prepare yourself to be amazed! You’ll witness my talents front row, and I’ll turn your life into an enthralling experience. It’ll be full of affection and fun from day one, and I’ll use all my abilities and perseverance to bring magic and love to my new home in Canada. You have my word.  I bet I would make a seriously good trick dog, if you wanted to go for those titles with me. Maybe we could do shows for folks. I may even teach you a trick or two to escape from work when it gets too busy, how does that sound? We can have some great playtime outside instead. Trust me, your life will never have a boring moment again, I’ll make sure of that. Just say the magic words, click on the magical “adopt" button… and adopt me!   I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.   Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Am I not a noble looking dog? I should be a head turner when you walk me down the street. Found in the middle of the road outside a major city in the Middle East when I was just a puppy, I was sent to a shelter. Here I have been now almost my entire life. I so long for a home. https://youtu.be/vSXjyFSnJhU. I tend to be a bit shy, but I am super friendly with people and dogs. My demeanor by nature is mellow and peaceful. I am healthy and waiting for my future family. I would really like to discover life outside the shelter. Are you ready for a loving girl in your life?

ASHLEY *bonded pair with PAWLMER Breed: Donestic Short Hair Age: 9 months Gender: fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 6-1/2 lbs Energy level: Average Relations: good with dogs and cats / unknown children Highlights: 1 eyed, playful Region: Middle East I am a sweet girl, who likes to hang out with my bestest buddy, Pawlmer. Found with a bad infection in my eyes. At a young 6 weeks old, I lost one eye and have limited vision in the other. I can see at about 70% with it. I also had a broken paw. Well, I am healed up and doing well now. I am really dependent on my buddy Pawlmer though, so we need to find a home together. I know my confidence will grow once I am in a forever home, where I can love up on my people. I am currently in boarding with my bestie. I like other cats and a dog in the home is fine too. Haven't been around kids though. I can be playful and enjoy snuggles once I see Pawlmer makes sure everything is safe. You can see how much we love each other in our video. We're 2, 2, 2 cats in 1 adoption. Do I need to repeat that a second time? Meooowhahaa. We really hope you are looking for kitty to scratch with each hand.   I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped.

Atom Ant Breed: Pointer/Saluki mix Age: 1 year Wgt/hgt: 44 lbs/ 19-3/4 inches Gender: M, will remain intact Relations: Good with dogs/ unknown cats & kids Activity level: Moderate for cart dog Highlights: Rear disabled, sweet, good with other dogs I am a very sweet, young boy who was in dire need, as my shelter was closing down. Thankfully, a lovely person in Canada has offered to foster me, so I have been taken in by my rescuer until I can get a flight there. I was found with all my legs tied up with a rope and run over by a car. I endured hellish pain. Some rescuers stepped in and I underwent severe surgery enduring pain and hardship for several months, but I was still able to recover. So, I was kept at a place after surgery, but because of improper care, I was hospitalized. I was then taken to my current shelter. It is extremely difficult to find homes for able bodies dogs, let alone one paralyzed. If a place for me had not been found, they feared they would have to euthanize me. Such a shame after so much was done to save me. Now, I have a chance at a new life. Though alas, I am paralyzed forever and can never play like other dogs... I have so much love to give and cuteness of personality to show you. You may think it may be sad for me to be disabled, but it is just the way my life is and I enjoy being alive and able to share my love of life with others. LALDR will provide a cart for me once I am in my new home, so I can learn to zip around like Lightning McQueen, Mario Andretti, Speedy Gonzales, Usain Bolt... Hahaa. I have no issues with other dogs and although I haven't been around cats, it might be hard for me to go after them. I also haven't been around children yet. If you are up for a loving little buddy to snuggle up with, then you've come to the right bio. Here I am. Up and at 'em, Atom Ant. Neutering has been deemed unsafe for me by the vet, so I will remain intact. Darn, I still can't do anything, even if I could get to the girls though.   I have not been spayed/neutered, but am *vaccinated & micro-chipped.

For more information, please contact: woofywishes@gmail.com Bahar (means spring in Farsi) is very kind and affectionate - Bahar was a healthy, kind and loving stray dog which was fed by a group of animal rescuers regularly by the Caspian shore north of Iran. 10 months ago when they went to feed the dogs, they found Bahar dragging herself on the shore.  Immediately she was taken to Tehran for imaging but unfortunately they found out that she was hit by a hard and sharp instrument so 3 of her ribs were broken and her spine was badly injured, which left her legs paralyzed. They also found out that she was very pregnant. She was transferred to Noor shelter and had her babies, but all of them perished due to illness at the shelter. She is very smart and learns very fast. She just needs a loving home and family to forget her horrible past. Bahar has control over her bladder and bowel; using a diaper until getting her on a potty routine will be helpful, as well as training her to give notice when she has to go. She is potty trained and needs a sand box for when she needs to go in order to not to get wet or dirty.  Bahar is a resident of Noor Shelter in Iran and temporarily staying with one of the shelter volunteers in her home, but she will not be able to stay there and will be transferred to the shelter again if a permanent home is not found.    Here is a video describing my story: https://www.facebook.com/woofywishes/videos/432159497686464/ If you are interested in Bahar, contact woofywishes@gmail.com. show less

Look for the bare necessities... forget about your worries and your strife... I'm Baloo, a male German Shepard/Golden Retriever with a sprinkling of regional mideastern shepard mixed in.  I am just a sweet, snuggly bear, around a year old.  I currently weigh about 50 lbs. I stand 29-1/2 inches tall.  I was hit by a car on a rural mountain road in the Middle East and fell into an empty pool. I had broken bones and completely shattered my vertebrae. Due to the severe injury, it was the vet's opinion that I should be euthanized. However, my rescuers decided to pursue the medical options available. I went through extensive surgery and fortunately, I have recovered and started walking. https://youtu.be/HvRIG5loZxQ, https://youtu.be/dj65zowdQRs. See my progression https://youtu.be/wJXXc4KHF4g. Thanks to my early treatment I should do well now. I do have some mild skeletal issues, but they don't cause any significant impairments to my mobility, though you will notice a bit of a limp. You'll also notice that someone cut off my ears. Sadly, this happens to a lot of dogs in the Middle East. People can be cruel! I recently arrived in Canada and I am living in a foster home in Vancouver. My foster mom says I am a very sweet boy who is affectionate and funny. There is a playful side to me that is evident when I meet other dogs, though I would do best with dogs that don't play too rough, because of past injuries. A home with another gentle dog would be ideal.   I tend to be afraid of sticks and loud noises and am wary when I first meet strange males. But once I know you there's a ton of love in this cuddly bear.  A loving home where I can continue to heal and gain confidence is what I want most in the world. Please come and meet me soon. I am good with children https://youtu.be/eA2hqQsCitk.  And here is another video showing my improving mobility:  https://youtu.be/5kX7R6e-HSM.   I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped.

Banoo (means Miss, Lady, Princess) Breed: Canaan Dog/Golden Retriever Age: 2 yrs Gender: Fe, spayed Wgt/hgt: 66 lbs/ 21-3/4 inches Relations: Dogs good / cats & kids unknown Activity level: moderate Highlights: Senses people's moods well, enjoys closeness, good recall & on leash A government van in the Middle East had me. They were planning to kill me. Thankfully, my rescuer intervened and was somehow able to get me from them. I have been with my rescuer about 7 months now. I am very friendly and like being around my people. I tend to be sensitive to emotions, so it's like I understand your feelings. Although I haven't been around kids, I would probably do well with them too, as I enjoy closeness of people so much and I am a kind girl. I haven't been around cats though. Do you love walking or running even. I would make a great partner for you, if so. My energy level is pretty normal overall. I looove spending time with humans and want all the attention I can get - watch my silly video trying to get attention of the person watching TV. There is just one thing that does scare me though, that is thunder. So, maybe if there is a thunderstorm, you will need to play music, get me a thunder shirt or give me some anti-anxiety meds until it passes. My rescuer said she really can't see any faults in me. I know how to be on leash and when off leash, I come back with my name or with a whistle. She also says I am very, very smart. I won't bark unless there is some serious reason to do so. I also get along very, very well with other dogs. I enjoy playing and I will share my food and toys just fine. I like stuffie toys. I really want to please you and get your approval.   I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.   Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Banzi Breed: Husky mix Age: 5 months Gender: male / not yet neutered Wgt/Hgt:  35 lbs / 20 inches Energy Level: Moderately active to Active Relations: good with dogs / tolerant of cats / unknown kids Highlights: Quick Learner, Playful Are you in a rut? Looking to spice things up a bit? I might be just the ticket: My name is Banzi, a young, male, husky mix from the Middle East.  So how does a handsome boy like me find himself without a home? I was born in a puppy mill, and was kicked out onto the streets with my mother (the photo of the white dog with blue eyes), and my sister Bindi. To make matters worse, once we were abandoned, local dogs started to harass us. I was attacked by those dogs and sustained injuries to my throat and belly. As you can see, it has been a tough start to my life.  Despite all that I've been through, I'm a friendly, well-behaved boy. My foster parents have stated I get along well with the other dogs - pretty remarkable given all I have been through. I have completely healed from my injuries and am ready to move out of my foster home. I'm really looking forward to spending time with my own family. I'd be interested in doing training games and maybe even agility - I've got a sharp mind and lots of energy. Teaching me things would be pretty fun, don't you think? Hiking would be fun too! My ideal home is with an active family. I currently live with cats and tolerate them just fine. I haven't been exposed to kids. Just think of all the neat experiences that you could share with me!  So what you do think? Ready to go on adventures together?   I have not been spayed/neutered, as I am too young yet. I am *vaccinated & micro-chipped though.   My spay/neuter is mandatory for my adoption to be finalized. LALDR does not cover the cost of sterilization on dogs arriving under 8 months of age.   My adoption fee is $600.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.    Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

BAXTER (Teddy) Breed: Shih-tzu Gender: Male- neutered Age: 1 year Wgt/Hgt: 11 lbs Energy Level: Moderate Relations: Good with kids, & kids Highlights: Very friendly, rarely barks, enjoys cuddles & his human. Region: Middle East Hi my name is Baxter! I am a super friendly pup who loves cuddles!  Sadly, where I grew up I didn’t have the best childhood. I was born into an awful breeding place where the conditions and treatment of myself and other puppies were cruel and unfair. Luckily, my rescuer was able to get me out and into a foster home! I am potty trained, super friendly and barely bark! Pretty nifty hunh? I am just waiting for someone to finally show me what a real home is like. I think I would really like to have kids to play with too! This means my chances for cuddles will go up! I really hope someone from Canada adopts me, so I can finally have a family to call my own. If you like a cuddle buddy, I am your best friend! For the small chances I have had on a leash outside, I seem pretty good. But, sadly due to some rules in the Middle East, I haven’t really had a chance to explore outside. I’ve been waiting so long to get outside and explore, do you think you could show me? I am neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.

Name/gender/breed:  BEANIE/male/saluki-whippet mix Location: India Age/weight: 2 years/39lb Relations: good with dogs and kids/cats unknown Hilights: people-loving, playful, energetic, smart   Hi there,  are you the person I've been waiting for all my life? I'm hoping from the tip of my tail to my little pink nose that you are the one who is going to adopt me.  If you're looking for the kind of dog who absolutely adores people of all ages and genders, then you're looking at him. I think you humans are just the bee's knee's.  The little versions - the ones you refer to as children - are especially adorable, in my opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1HF9murqmU&feature=youtu.be Before I came to these kennels in Gujhrat, India, I was hanging out near an army camp trying to find scraps of food and hints of human kindness.  It's quite likely that somebody dropped me off there thinking that the soldiers would take care of me. It happens to lots of dogs; we get dumped because people can't afford to look after us.    I've been here a while now and have a bunch of other dogs to keep me company. Although I would hands down pick people to be my companions if I was stranded on a desert island, I have to say I quite like other dogs too. The beagles could use a little more zip in them - they just don't move at my pace - but we have fun anyway and they're pretty good at following me around the place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAUGN4azii8&feature=youtu.be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYfwNRF0nDE&feature=youtu.be Here I am with anther one of my dog-friends: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVcOSwsF3dc&feature=youtu.be   They say I am a smart dog. Already I have learned some basic commands, I am toilet trained and I know how to walk nicely on leash. Between you and me, this stuff was pretty simple for me to learn. I am such a people-pleaser that I will try my hardest to learn anything you care to teach me.  My dream home would be with an active family. Going for walks is one of my favourite things to do.  Even if it's just you and me, that would be fine too; just bring me home to live with you, please. The day they come to tell me I have a home to go to will be the best day of my life. No, actually, that will be the day that you and I finally meet.     I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Belfie Breed: Bearded Collie mix Age: 7 yrs Gender: Female, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 47 lbs / 22 inches Energy level: Medium Relations: Okay with Dogs, Cats & Children Highlights: Sweet natured, good with commands, calm, quiet inside, playful Lights, Camera, Action! Hi, my name is Belfie and I am ready for my close-up. I am a gorgeous and patient 7 year old female, mixed breed dog. I was rescued several years ago outside a big city in the Middle East, where homeless dogs like me were being killed. Fortunately some kind people took me to a shelter and gave me medical attention. When I was found, I was suffering from a terrible skin condition. Look at me now! All healed up and stunning, if I do say so myself. So what's my next big adventure? Finding my furever family! I am currently living with a foster while I wait. My foster mom says I'm the best behaved girl she has met. Not only do I have the most gorgeous blonde coat, I have a personality to match. I'm calm and quiet when inside (no barking), and playful when outside. I'm also quite bright - I understand and am happy to follow many commands. My ideal home is with a family who lives in a quiet neighbourhood. I am a little afraid of loud noises (like firecrackers or bottles opening, etc...), so I would prefer a home without young children. I have lived with other dogs and feline friends and we get along well. The rough times in my life are now distant memories and I can't wait to make many new happy ones; I am really excited to start life in Canada with you. What do you say? I'd be a great addition to your family portrait. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped.

Hola hoomans! My name is Benny and I'm a charming 4-year old Pittie-Lab Mix from Mexico, weighing in at about 40 lbs (and 19 inches tall). I am such a loving and sweet fella, despite being tied up on a metal chain for almost my whole life. Lucky for me, some lovely hoomans come by almost daily to take me on walks and boyyyy do I ever LOVE my walks!! Sometimes the hoomans bring a ball with them and woweee is that ever fun!! Watch my video of me playing ball... look how happy I am! I may have had a pretty rough life so far, but I am still such a people person and I seem to adore men. I'm also pretty great with most other dogs. I do seem fairly interested in chasing kitty cats though, so a kitty-free home would probably be best for me. After being tied up for so long, I think I'd love to have a house (not an apartment) with a big yard for me to run around in. I've got 4 years of ZOOMIES to catch up on, doncha think?? Would you please be my happily-ever-after home? All I need is love and some exercise and I will be your BFF furever!! I have been neutered and vaccinated.

Anyone out there in B.C or Washington missing a sweet little white-haired terrier from Shanghai named Bianca? One that is 2 years old, 14lb and 15 inches tall and really, really wants to find a home.  I know I used to have a home but I just don't know where it went.  One day I was living with my people and wearing my 'going-out harness' and the next I was all alone on the streets of Shanghai. (I've heard it said that I was 'abandoned', whatever that means.)  At the time, my instinct was to follow this kind-looking person in the hope she would take me back to my home, but she instead took me back to her apartment for a little bit while she tried to track down my owners. Sadly, she had no luck. She decided that as I was so friendly to people I would quickly be adopted, so she took me to a huge shelter and asked them to take care of me. Well, that was a terrifying experience, let me tell you.  So many dogs, so much noise, so few people to spend time with me. I became scared and shy. And nobody adopted me. Thankfully I have now been transferred to a foster home where I feel so much better.  There are ten (yes, 10!) foster cats here, as well as another dog, and I get along with all of them.  My foster mom has reminded me how great it is to crawl onto a human lap again and feel safe and loved.  We've been going out on walks and life is starting to improve. Now, if only one of you big-hearted folks out there would be kind enough to adopt me, I could rest easy again.  I really miss belonging to my own human family and knowing that I am safe and loved in my own home. As I come out of my shell more and more I am showing what a sweet and easy little dog I am.  The kind of dog who could slip easily into your world and you would wonder how you ever managed without me in it.  So please bring me home soon.    I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 includes my airfare to Canada.

Or felt like it was time for a fresh start? My name is Bijan. I'm a young dog from China.  I'm starting to get the feeling that amazing things are in store for me.  I grew up on the streets. It was a hard life and it made me pretty scared of people. Lucky for me, my rescuers were determined to get me off the streets and into a safe environment. I didn't make it easy for them either! I'm so glad they did. Since I have been in foster care, I've learned that people can be wonderful. My foster family has helped me gain confidence and blossom into a confident and gentle dog. I still am wary of strangers but warm up to them with time and patience.  So perhaps you are reading my bio now because you feel there is an empty space in your life that a pup like me could fill. I sure am ready to experience family life. We could help each other out by starting a wonderful new chapter in our lives together! If you would enjoy wet noses, stroking chins, fluffy ears and going for walks, it might be a great match. Don't they say blondes have more fun? I'm ready to make good memories with my people. We don't even have to do anything to wild and crazy, either. I'm not a high energy dog. I'm happy to be your companion. If you are able to offer me a forever home, I would be so grateful.

My name is Bindi, a young, female, husky mix from the Middle East. I'm a serious lap-dog looking for a lap to call my own. So how does a cutie like me find herself without a home? I was born in a puppy mill, and was kicked out onto the streets with my mother (the photo of the white dog with blue eyes), and my brother Banzi. To make matters worse, once we were abandoned, local dogs started to harass us. Banzi was attacked by those dogs. I was lucky to get away uninjured. As you can see, it has been a tough start to my life.  Despite all that I've been through, I'm trusting of humans and other dogs. In fact, I really love snuggles with humans. I also enjoy playing with my doggy friends.  I keep hearing all these great things about Canada and really hope to find a home there. My ideal family would be one that can take me to a dog park to play, or has another calm, friendly dog that wants a buddy.  If you have a big couch that we can snuggle up on, that would be perfect! I haven't been exposed to cats or children and I'm not sure what I would think of them.  I'm currently living at a shelter with my mom. I would really like to discover the joys of having a home to call my own.

Are you looking for a cool, calm, collected four-legged companion? Well, you just might be in luck! My name is Blitzen and I am a handsome 4 year old mixed retriever pup from Bahrain. I am quite the looker with my soft black fur, big brown eyes, and white speckled front paws. I stand about 27 inches tall and weigh about 65 pounds. I may have a pretty big stature; however I am super calm and gentle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9lO34-9G2c&feature=youtu.be). How’d I end up in the dog shelter, you might ask? Well, me and my bro were abandoned by our owners when they decided to leave the country. Unfortunately, instead of finding us a new home, they just left us tied up in the garden. We stayed there, tied up for a long time. Thank our lucky stars though, somebody called the Bahrain Animal Rescue Centre (BARC) and they came and saved us! My bro and I are both safe and sound at the BARC shelter now, but we both deserve loving homes with cozy beds, treats, and lots of lovin’. I have been told that I’m grrrreat with other dogs (check out my video of me sharing a kennel with another pooch…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deb6Ca4T8bk&feature=youtu.be). I am still a young, youthful dog who loves walks and adventures, but I can also be calm and chill (can you say snoozes on the couch? Yes please!). My rescuers describe me as a lovely boy who is gentle and great with kids. I will admit, I’m not a huge fan of the kitties though, so a kitty-free home would be good for me. I’m a gem on the leash, look at my video- I’m such a good boy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWitNi4rAag&feature=youtu.be). Look how much I love having my head scratched hehe, I never want my humans to stop! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otCb6R8hv7U) Could you be my furever family? I guarantee we would be fast friends! I am neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped. My adoption fee of $500 includes my airfare to Canada.

Helloo future family! My name is Bobby (Bob) and I am a striking 5 year old German Shepard-mix pup from Bahrain.  I’m a pretty handsome dude standing about 29 inches tall and weighing in at about 78 pounds. Quite a stud, dontcha think?  Despite my rugged good looks, I have a pretty shy personality. I know I know, the handsome hunk with the quiet, sweet personality… but it’s true!! My rescuers can vouch for me… I’m just a big pup who enjoys cuddles and lotsa love! I may be slightly shy when we first meet, but after a bit of time I’ll warm right up to you and we’ll be BFF’s after that! Did someone say walk? I LOVES walks!!! Walks on the grass, walks on the pavement, walks to the dog park, you name it… I LOVE IT! My rescuers say I get along great with other dogg-o’s and I even get along with kitties (check out my video… it’s the truth!). I’m still a young dog (5-years young, right!), but I’m pretty darn calm. As long as we go for walks and adventures, I will be perfectly happy to curl up on the couch right next to you for a nice long nap (zzzZZ). Being a bit of a skittish guy, I don’t like loud noises and sometimes meeting new people can be scary. Don’t worry; even though I may take some time to adjust to my new home, with some patience and lots of love… I have all the makings of a great companion!  Won’t you please give me a furever home?   I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $500 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

BRUNO Breed: German Shepard/Border Collie mix Age: 2-1/2 yrs Gender: Male, neutered Wgt/Hgt: 55 lbs / 24 inches Energy level: moderate Relations: good with dogs, afraid of some / unknown with kids / NO cats Highlights: Loves people interactions, loyal, friendly, highly intelligent, resource guarding Hello nice people! My name is Bruno and I'm a good boy, a very smart and loyal dog. I am currently living in Bellingham, WA with my foster parents. Hopefully being on the West Coast will mean we have a chance to meet each other! My story is quite long and very sad, but it's important for you to know how my life started off. I can’t remember much about my puppyhood and what happened to my mother or how we got separated. What I remember is that people did not want me near them. At first I did not know it; I would wag my tail for them in a hope for some affection, but each time I got kicked out of their way. One day I saw a man sitting on a chair at the street corner. I was hungry and thirsty so I decided to approach him. The man looked at me, then brought me a bowl of water and gave me food. I loved him. He never pet me or touched me, but he never hurt me either. Later I found out he was from Afghanistan and was a paid security person for a few houses and construction sites. So, I decided to help him with his work. I followed him everywhere. I felt very happy having him in my life. He was feeding me and did not hurt me. I got better and better at helping him; I even started barking at the cars that were going by, helping to chase them away. One day my Afghani friend went away and did not come back. I waited and waited for him, but he was gone. I continued doing my work, barked at any car that did not belong to our neighbors. One day I barked at a car and the driver did not like that. He stopped his car, came out with a big club and hit me on the head. My head was broken and it was so painful, I started crying. The lady neighbor who was occasionally feeding me ran out her house when she heard my cries. She immediately took me to the vet, where I stayed for many days 'til I got healed. The kind lady was taking care of many dogs in her house and could not keep me there. She took me back to the neighborhood and kept feeding me. One day, I saw a new construction building and thought maybe I could find a new friend. I walked there and did not see the hot tar; I stepped in the corner of it. Luckily it was not that hot, but it gave me a superficial burn. I started crying and limping toward my kind lady friend’s house. When she saw me limping she took me to vet again. After many days when my burns were healed, I was discharged from the vet. My kind lady friend decided I love people too much and it was not safe for me to stay outside. This time she took me to a paid doggy sanctuary in the hopes that I could come to the West Coast to find my furever home. Okay, enough about that sad stuff. I am here on the West Coast now and am living in a foster home. My foster parents say that I am very responsive to positive reinforcement (yum, treats!!) and that I LOVE my people. I have fun with some dogs, however I can grumble at others (until I get comfortable with them and realize they have good doggy intentions). Once I gain confidence, I should feel more at ease. I should probably be in a home with a yard for me to run around in (or a dog park close by) and have a confident human who can love me and give me the training that I need. Not sure about kids at this point. I tend to be high on prey drive... so please no feline type in my new home.  I love people very much and love to be their companion. I want to protect you, so I may need some training for you to show me that you are handling any perceived danger and it is not my job. I have also developed some resource guarding issues, which is normal for a pup who had to survive on the streets as a stray. I need a confident adopter who can help me work through my fears and encourage me to be the best doggy I can be.  I have a medium level of energy. Of course being a herding breed, you will need to consistently stimulate my mind, as well as ensure I get plenty of physical exercise. I'm soooo hopeful that someone wants to give me a loving home that I so deserve. I will need time to adjust to my surroundings and I will need lots of TLC and patience. I am smart and I can learn to be an amazing companion, it'll just take a bit of work! Good things take time, am I right or am I right?  UPDATE: This is what my foster mama has to say about me:  "Bruno is very sweet natured and gentle. He's very loyal, and wants to be close to his people. He's calm and quiet, his energy level is pretty subdued. It could be him just still being nervous, but he's kind of a couch potato when we're home. He's a quick learner with positive reinforcement; he's honestly more motivated by praise and a gentle pat than treats. Bruno is a good boy and goes to his crate without a fuss at night and when we are at work. He is also housebroken! He's good on a leash, and tries really hard to walk/jog by my side (with a few distractions from those tempting squirrels and kitties in the neighbourhood).  I have been neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.   Looking for more furry friends?

Buck (Blackie) Breed: Lab Age: 2 yrs Gender: m, neutered Wgt/Hgt: 55 lbs / 33 inches Energy level: moderate Relations: good with small dogs and kids / unknown cats Highlights: smart, mellow, attention hog, bit timid outside home You see that sleek handsome black dog in the pictures, that is me, Buck. Pleasure to meet you. As a young male dog of 1 year old, I am a boy tall in stature and with great heights of heart. Now, allow me to let you in on my life story. Picture this, almost 2 years ago in the midst of a cold, snowy winter somewhere in the Middle East, I was just a puppy abandoned in a box on the side of the street with 2 of my brothers. I was sick and our mother was nowhere in sight. Our doomed fate changed when our rescuer was visiting one of their clients at a manufacturing plant nearby. A warehouse worker stumbled upon us and showed us to our rescuer. The rest is history. They took us to the vet and while my brothers were healthy, I was diagnosed with Parvo Virus and was hospitalized. When I was all healthy again, I joined my brothers. We have been living with our rescuer in their Villa. As grateful as I am for them, we agree it is about time I fly the coop and see the world for myself and find people who can give me the life I deserve. I have not been much of an inside dog. I have had access to the outside all the time, so will need to be taught about letting you know when I have to go out. I have been going out for walks on a leash for a few months now, but had not received much exposure to these things until more recently, so I am a bit timid outside of the home. Cars and strangers are a bit scary. I just don't understand it all yet. I need an adopter who will take the time and guide me through this scary world and show me that it is not so bad. As a young dog with a sharp wit and an eagerness to learn, I can pick up tricks and commands well. I am quite smart. Maybe we can make a hobby of tricks. I am the kind of pup that really, really cares for their person. Because of this though, I would do best as an only dog. I am a bit of a diva and will bully my way in for attention. I have not met any cats in my day, so probably best in a cat free home. Children are great though and smaller dogs are fine, no sweat. I guess I sound quirky, but if you stick with me, we can be the next dynamic duo! The ideal home for me would be of moderate, but mellow activity. One hopefully with a yard, as it would be nice to have a place where I can stretch my long, lanky legs. Living in a home with these creatures called “Children” would be fine with me, because I would have playmates. A family that can help me get over fears and just hold my paw to show me how great the world can be, would be perfect. Let me show you how bright my heart of hold it will shine when you choose me to bring home with you.   I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped.

Hello lovely people. I am Buckley, a three year old, 15lb, 9 inch tall, poodle from S.Korea.  I was initially found wandering the streets of Gwangiu. It was evident I was not in good condition. Not only was my back leg not functioning, upon further inspection my ears were badly cut up and I had cigarette burns on my little body. I was in a very weakened state from all the abuse I had suffered. When the vet took a look at me it was evident that all these things were done to me by human hands. My leg had been forcibly broken and left untreated for months. My ears had been cut with sharp razor blades. What kind of person does that to a small, defenceless dog? I want you to know that I am now in the care of a wonderful rescue group and although my leg could not be repaired, they have given me many acupuncture treatments and I'm not in any pain. I can run and play and climb stairs just like any other dog, so no worries there. In fact, I am the kind of dog who really doesn't have any worries; I'm full of love and joy. Amazing as it may seem, I adore people and will happily run up to strangers and let them pick me up.  If you're willing to cuddle me then that's good with me!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGZXkF8Z528&list=PL3UlJJYID8eFUwDtqae45QkpPIvc1pkER&index=7 People tend to smile when I'm around. Little children like petting me and I certainly enjoy their attention. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsHvCVhaoZo&list=PL3UlJJYID8eFUwDtqae45QkpPIvc1pkER&index=4 Adults think I'm cute as a button. Even cats seem to be fine with me; probably because I'm indifferent to them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0BfGJTK5zE&list=PL3UlJJYID8eFUwDtqae45QkpPIvc1pkER&index=3 It's not only meeting people that excites me, I also love making friends with other dogs. Take me to a dog park and I will happily play with any friendly dog I meet. I bet you and I would make tons of friends together at your local dog park. If you're looking for a dog to go walking with, then you're in luck because that's another of my favourite activities.  Oh yes, have I mentioned how much I like snuggling yet? There are so many things that make me happy it's hard to list them all.  I know I'm not perfect. My back leg will never function, I have scars where the cuts were on my ears and where the cigarette burns went deep on my body. But, I'm hoping I'm perfect for you. Please bring me home.   I am neutered, vaccinated and micochipped and my adoption fee of $500 includes my airfare to Canada.

Casey (Afsoon) Breed: Lab/Golden Retriever/German Shepard Age: 7 months Gender: Fe, Spayed Wgt/Hgt: 45 lbs / 21-3/4 inches Energy level: moderate-high Relations: good with other dogs & kids / cats unknown ; does not like to be left alone. Highlights: smart, can jump fences, loves playing, LOVES her people Hiya! My name is Casey and I have recently been brought from the Middle East to Canada! I am a lovely girl with LOTS of love to give and boy do I ever LOVE people. I will fall head over tail in love with you in an instant!  Let me give you a little recap of my life so far... I was found in the jungle with my sister when we were about a month old, with our mama nowhere to be found. Unfortunately, I got Parvovirus, but thankfully my rescuer got me treatment and I won the battle against the nasty illness. Just so you know, I'm a super healthy pup now! A little while ago I was adopted by a family in Canada. As much as my people loved me and reallyyyyy wanted to keep me, they found out that I have pretty significant separation anxiety and can become destructive if I'm left alone. My adopters knew I'd need a home where someone could stay with me 100% of the time and could slowly help me overcome my anxiety. My new foster mum works from home (yay!) and says I have improved a LOT (double YAY!). I get long daily walks/hikes, so I am much calmer. I have a big fear of vehicles, but my foster mum is working on that. I have started walking my foster-kids to and from school every day and I've been such a good girl! My manners are improving and I try reallyyyy hard to listen to commands. I will admit, I have a shoe-eating problem, but I'm working on that! I am good with chillin' in my kennel - so that's a bonus! I sleep on a doggy bed beside my foster mama, oh that is so nice. I'm awesome with little kids (my foster mum runs a daycare!). I've got a 90% success rate with other dog-o's, however if a dog invades my personal space I can get a bit defensive. Me and my mum are working on fixing that. With continued time, patience, and TLC I will become a strong and confident pup! Check out how good I am at playing with my new foster bro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxgmS9StVVY&feature=youtu.be Now, on to my charming personality... I have been told that I am kind girl who likes to play and run with other doggies. Sometimes I am afraid of men when I first meet them, especially if you're big and tall. If I'm scared I'll run and hide, but with patience and some treats (yum!), I will become more comfortable. Ladies, don't worry, I'm not afraid of you... so you can get ALLLL my love right away! As I mentioned before... I don't like being alone. I get really stressed out when my people leave me - I'd just way rather hangout with you all the time! Any time I get stressed or scared, the best way to calm me down is talk real soft and quiet to me and to give me lots of ear rubs and head scratches.  I enjoy running and playing with other dogs. https://youtu.be/BjyN8F3hYxU. I also like playing ball and with toys.  Ever heard the saying "Good things take time"? Well... that's me! I am sweet, caring, smart, loving, kind and gentle.  I just need time to feel comfortable in my surroundings and to be able to trust people and other dogs. Remember, I'm still just a puppy and have lots to learn. It just takes time! Will you give me the opportunity to grow into the amazing dog I know I can be? My dream family: having a mom or dad who can stay with me (I hear working from home is pretty awesome) or who can maybe try putting me in doggy daycare (so I can play with other doggy friends if you have to leave me for a little bit). Did I mention that I LOVE sleepovers with humans? Yup, I'm a cuddler!  I'm also smart and have already started to learn new tricks! Oh, I'm also a great high-jumper, so I hope you have a nice tall fence! It would be really nice to have a yard to run around in or be able to go to the dog parks to stretch my legs and have friends to play with. Won't you bring sweet faced me into your home. We can become fast friends. I'm waiting. I am spayed, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. UPDATE: Casey has serious allergic reactions to anesthesia and sutures, which we discovered when she was spayed.  My adoption fee is $600.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.   Looking for more furry friends?

Hello, Casha here. I am a pretty, 7 year old, female Labrador Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog mix (best guess!) I can be quite the lovey, dovey pup, even at around 80 lbs. I was born on the streets of a big city in the Middle East and when I was just a wee puppy, I was hit by a car. My back leg was run over and crushed, so now I am a card carrying member of the tri-paw club. Even though I was in terrible pain when my rescuer found me, I couldn't stop kissing her when she lovingly scooped me off the ground; I was so happy to be rescued. After a bit if time at a shelter, fortune smiled and I was brought to Canada where I am now living in a foster home . Though I can come on strong when I first meet new dogs, with proper introductions I can make friends with dogs my size or larger, though I really should be the only dog in my future home.  Something I find very exciting is small, furrry creatures that run. I really like to chase them so I should definitely not live in a home with little dogs, cats or squirrels!  When we go for walks my foster mom makes sure to steer clear of the squirrelly areas because even though I only have 3 legs I can sure run when I want to!  Other than when I'm in chase mode, I don't really need a lot of activity. Long walks are not high on my list of priorities, but don't get me wrong, I really enjoy going out for a 'sniffy-walk' each day.  Not only is it important for my health, but it's good for the mind too. Daily exercise eases my anxiety (I get scared by loud noises and lots of hustle and bustle).  Speaking of health, because I have a bit of age-related arthritis I am on daily fish oil supplements, as recommended by my vet.   I hope my future home has a yard or patio where I could hang out.  I really do love to spend time outdoors lounging on the deck in the sunshine. I could happily while away the day out there. An apartment just wouldn't work for me. My ideal home is a quiet, calm place where I can spend my days bonding with my person and wandering around the yard. After our daily constitutional you and I could hang out together and bask in mutual adoration.   My wonderful foster mom has really taken a shine to me (I have that effect on people) and I have enjoyed entertaining her with my mischievous nature and occasional playfulness. I have a cute curiosity too.  Check my video https://youtu.be/7qhg4OhemJI    People are definitely my favourite beings and my foster mom will tell you I am an extremely loving girl who adores belly rubs and cuddles. So now you know all about me, let's get together. I am local so you can come and meet me any time your little heart desires.  I'll be waiting ......   I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Catie-Cat Breed: Feline, domestic short hair Age: 1 yr Gender: female, spayed  Hgt/Wgt: 8 lbs Energy level: average Relations: good with cats & small dogs (big dogs unknown) / good with people Highlights: kind, shy, sweet, talkative Hey, y’all! I’m Catie-C (yeah, for cat) and I’m here to bring some serious chat into your home. My life was a little harsh when it started. I used to hang out with my bro, when we were like 3 months old. We were okay on the streets, until heavy rain started pouring.  It got ugly, but we found a place to crash. It was dope there. There was a staircase with a cat house and stuff, and there were some good friends too. Those were good times.  We used to chill and have fun, but it didn’t last. Handsome as he was, my bro didn’t make it. Some very bad folks took his life, so he’s not around anymore, just because they didn’t like us. Mean, right? Well, that’s kinda how things go sometimes in the Middle East for us cats. But I got lucky. I feel like my brother is looking after me still. He was a kind soul, just as I am.  Now, I’m crashing at a sweet lady’s house (she fed us and took care of us both when we first came in in the middle of the rainy night). She let me stay with her since I lost my brother, very cool woman. Actually, she’s been trying to protect me, because those ugly folks are still after my bones.  My foster is the only reason why I’m still kicking, and I’ll always be grateful. But I can’t crash at her place forever, you know? They can come and get me at any time and that’d be a shame. I’m a survivor, yes. But I don’t like being at risk of losing my voice. After what happened to my brother, I just want to go as far as possible from them. So despite all the fear and the cold and the sadness, I’m super ready to find an awesome family to spend the rest of my years with. I love talking and hanging and eating; oh, man, do I love eating?  I think food is my favorite thing, but I also enjoy spending time with other cat fellows and people for sure. My foster has a small dog, so I’ve gotten used to him too. I haven’t met big dogs, so I can’t tell if I like them yet. Also, you must know I can get a little shy sometimes, especially with sudden movements. The folks on the streets must have done that to catch my bro. But it’s not a big deal. I’m sure that once I’m in my new place, with my new family, and new love, I’ll be able to forget about all that and just be as outgoing, as I am talkative.  So, are you ready for a kind spirit with a loud voice to keep you company?

CHAMP - adoption pending

Name: CHAMP, male Breed : Shepherd/Retriever mix Age/Weight: 10 weeks/ 9lb Location: Kuwait   Hello big wide world. I think I'm ready to find my place out there now. After, all I'm going to grow up fast and I'd really like to do that in my forever home. When I was just a week old I was rescued, along with my 8 siblings and our mom, from a dangerous part of Kuwait. The city workers routinely poison stray dogs in that area. Now we are all safe in foster care in Kuwait, but oh how we would love to find our furever homes.  Compared to my littermates I am best described as the calm, confident and curious one. Although I love to play and cuddle with my siblings I am also quite content to sit on the sidelines and watch the madness.  I'd be fine as an only dog in the home, or could happily live with another canine companion. I am likely to grow up into a medium sized dog, kinda like my mama who measures 20 inches tall and is about 40lb. I am microchipped and have had my first set of puppy vaccinations but am too young to be neutered. My adoption fee of $600 includes my airfare to Canada.

CHAMPION (Kona) - Local

Hello kind people! My name is Champion and after reading my story, you’ll understand why! Let’s start with the basics though… I am a two-year old Anatolian Shepherd/Retriever Mix, I weigh 60 pounds, and I stand nearly 28 inches high. I am a sweet, sweet girl. Now… on to my story… I was found by a rescue group outside of a major city in the Middle East when they came to feed the stray dogs. I came close to one of the lovely rescuers, but my jaw was broken so I couldn’t eat anything. I wanted to eat so badly; I was so hungry. My rescuers saw I was in so much pain and needed help (and lots of love!). You see, my jaw was broken in a car accident weeks before my rescuers found me. As you can imagine, I couldn’t eat that whole time and had lost a lot of weight. My poor little mouth was bleeding and was dislocated. Don’t worry, the story takes a happier turn now! My rescuers shared my video to help raise enough money for the vet to start my treatment. The vet fixed my jaw and did a bone marrow transplant from my leg to speed up my recovery. You can see from my pictures that I had to have a tube connected on my face for a couple months so my jaw could heal completely – the tube made me look like Robodog (https://youtu.be/upRP_sY2FbU)!. I had to be hand-fed soft foods until I was fully recovered. I also couldn't be with my doggy friends for a while because I had to be careful with the jaw tubes (https://youtu.be/p8KZZLZv9IE). Although I didn't understand all of this, I felt better no longer living in pain and having them put food into my tummy. Finally, they removed the tubes from my face (https://youtu.be/V1fGFrb98AQ). Look at me now though!!  https://youtu.be/_8hHc0X2G7o I am fully healed, can eat on my own, and am ready for a family of my own. Check out my main video to see my awesome recovery. Like I said…my name is Champion, and now you know why! What am I like now? Well, I am pretty good with other dogs and I can be quite a goofball (checkout my videos:  https://youtu.be/-87LlQ56sbQ and https://youtu.be/1thkFwF5k20). I can be a bit timid, but with lots of love, belly rubs, and time, I’m sure that will diminish. My foster mama says I am so loving and kind and LOVE attention (watch how much I love be petted: https://youtu.be/y3UugHAp540. I mean, can you blame me? After surviving so much, I think I deserve endless love, belly rubs, and gentle snuggles! I am friendly and calm and would love to have a moderate level activity home. Now that I’m all healed, I should regain my energy and activeness, being such a young and youthful dog. I was lucky enough to be brought to Canada, and I had a family of my own for a few weeks. Unfortunately, they were unable to keep me due to other circumstances in their lives. They were heartbroken to part with me, but they knew that I deserve a better home with lots of love and attention. This is what my family had to say about me: "Champion is so full of love and will never turn down a cuddle or affection. She’s a smart girl learning her basic manners and is basically housetrained. She walks like a dream on her leash - although she is very curious and loves to sniff and explore everything. She was thrilled to romp in the snow and enjoys her walks but is also happy to rest peacefully next to you. She is still timid around people but is becoming more brave with each walk. Once she warms up to you, she will be your best friend and never leave your side." Check out my video of me getting some lovins while patiently waiting for the vet: (https://youtu.be/0k-85n2hg0w). The vet removed some loose teeth – so I’m all cleaned up and ready for my furever home! UPDATE: This is what my new foster mama has to say about me:  "Kona is a total sweetheart and LOVES to be loved. She is fully housetrained and gets along great with people and kids. She is a bit weary when she first meets you, but she quickly accepts you once she gets a smell and a gentle pat. She does have some anxiety toward other dogs but she can adjust once she feels secure and safe. Kona needs a human to call her own and will do well once she feels secure and gets into a routine. Kona is wonderful on a leash (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_CGkyiTOzE&feature=youtu.be) and is very treat motivated. With time, TLC, and lots of love, she will become your truly devoted best friend!"    I have been spayed, *vaccinated & micro-chipped.  My adoption fee is 550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.    Looking for more furry friends?

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: woofywishes@gmail.com Chiko is very smart, handsome, affectionate and an amazing boy. He will make an absolutely wonderful addition to any family. He is 2.5 years old, a neutered male, Anatolian Shepherd mix. He is very social and loves the company of people of all kind and dogs. He is not cat tested, but since he has such an amazing temperament, with patience and proper introductions, he will be ok. He is crate trained. House-training is work in progress, and he may have a couple of accidents at first but he is so eager to please his master that he will be fully house-trained in matter of few days. He is not a barker nor flight risk, and he is good on leash.  History: Chiko was a stray dog and he was rescued after being hit by a car. He had several broken bones including a broken pelvis. He went through 3 procedures and he has made full recovery. He runs and jumps with no issues, but sometimes has a limp in his hind legs when he is running.  Chiko is healthy, vaccines are up-to-date, and micro-chipped.   You can see a couple of videos of Chiko in his Instagram post: https://www.instagram.com/p/B6wTTHthzuS/   If you are interested in Chiko, please contact woofywishes@gmail.com. show less

Chinchin Breed: Retriever / Cane Corso Mix Age: 3 yrs Gender: Male, neutered Wgt/Hgt: 59 lbs / 23 inches Energy level: Medium to Active Relations: Good with Dogs, Cats & Children Highlights: Happy and Curious Hello from South Korea! My name is Chinchin. I am a three year-old handsome lad, looking for a family.  Larger pups like me often find it hard to find homes in Korea - where smaller dogs are often preferred as pets. As a result, I wound up in a city pound, on the euthanasia list. Luck found me, and I was rescued by my caregiver at the last minute. Now, I'm a student of the Welcome Paws Academy, where I'm learning all the skills I need for my furever family. I can't wait to leave my street dog days behind me. Are you a fan of floppy ears and expressive eyes? How about curly tails and silky jowls? What about going for walks? I adore them. There are so many interesting sights and smells to be enjoyed. I'm looking for a loving family who can help me learn good manners and become the very best dog I can be. Life in a home setting is new to me. I'm timid at first, especially with strangers, men and children. This just means we need to take it a little slow. Once I get to know people, I'm a complete sweetheart.... especially if you have yummy treats to share.   You can see I'm gentle meeting this child: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENhv0ebqUpw&list=PLhW1tPKt15h72FjSxM5Pselc4_5IZ3C8v And taking snacks from her: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuF9A2mNTsU&feature=youtu.be I love playing with other dogs of all sizes, but I sometimes get a little too excited. I'll need to keep working on this and also have my people help me pick suitable playmates.  You can see just how much fun I have with my friend Soya (also for adoption) in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7BSdYZl-y0&list=PLhW1tPKt15h72FjSxM5Pselc4_5IZ3C8v&index=6 Fortunately, I am not aggressive - I just get to be too much of a goof and my lack of social skills show a little. I have no interest in cats and could probably co-exist with them just fine.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKyGYijOOuA&list=PLhW1tPKt15h72FjSxM5Pselc4_5IZ3C8v&index=5 One of my quirks is that when I'm trying to avoid something, I make this cute chirping sound. Adorable, right? In addition to my good looks, I have some other great features: I don't have separation or resource-guarding issues. I also rarely bark.  So, what do you say? Do you find training dogs fulfilling? Do you see all my amazing potential? I'm a sweet-natured dog - basically a puppy in a big dog body. I'm hoping luck will strike twice, and I'll be chosen to join your family. I think once we get to know each other well, we will be best friends.   I have been neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped.

Chixxy here. I am a female Anatolian Shepard and perhaps Spanish Greyhound mix. I have a very sweet nature, though a bit shy. I am about 1 year old now and weigh 72 lbs, while standing barely over 32-1/2 inches tall. My mother was getting pregnant way too often on the streets here in the Middle East. Our rescuer caught her with me and my litter mates when we were about 2-3 months old. My brother Blaise is also listed on here. We were put into foster homes until we were older. Now we are ready to live in Canadian homes. I am a very loveable pup, smart and a fast learner. I get along with other dogs, so a buddy in the home is fine. Kitty cats and kids are not ones I have been around though. An energetic to moderately active home would be right up my alley. Having my own doggie bed would be so nice, but of course if you let me, I would be cuddled up with you in your bed too. Are the dog parks as fun as I hear? I sure hope so.   I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped.  My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.   Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

CINDY, female, Jindo mix Age: 8 months Weight/Height: 29lb/20inches Energy level: medium Relations: good with dogs, cats, kids Hilights: social butterfly  I was just a tiny, stray puppy of 8 weeks when I happened to come across a person watering the plants in his garden. When he opened the gate a crack to take a better look at me, in I marched as though I belonged there.  That's the kind of outgoing nature I have. Although I tried my best to charm the gardener I guess he didn't want a dog, no matter how adorable, so he took me to the pound.  I'm very lucky that I was soon spotted by a caring individual who has now placed me in a foster home while I wait for you to adopt me. If you are looking for the kind of dog who love everyone, adults, kids, other dogs; then look no further. If you take me to the dog park you can guarantee I'll make friends, not only with the dogs, but with their people too. (I'm a great way for you to meet people!) In fact I've yet to meet a human or animal I didn't like: I'd even make friends with a cat if it let me.  Here I am playing with a bigger dog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SRIqiwA_Z4&list=PLhW1tPKt15h4Gn1VCtcnNggSlD8fUaTkN&index=3 I'd like to make friends with this cat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dzPXjJdpM0&list=PLhW1tPKt15h4Gn1VCtcnNggSlD8fUaTkN&index=2 I'm playful but not hyper, so you would find me easy to live with and easy to train. My idea of happiness requires just two things: walks and being petted.   I'm pretty sure I could bring some happiness to your life too.

Clifford Breed: Jindo / Welsh Corgi Mix Age: 3 yrs Gender: Male / Neutered Wgt/Hght: 33 lbs / 16.5 inches Energy Level: Medium Relations: Good with Dogs & Children   Hi Friends! My name is Clifford. I'm a perky male Jindo mix with an insatiable grin! I was rescued from a high-kill shelter in South Korea, by a kind person who thought I deserved a second chance. There are too many stray dogs in my hometown, and unfortunately, few have enough time in the shelter to find a home. I am so happy that I am one of the lucky ones! I'm a young dog and have so much living yet to do.   Personality-wise, I have a lot to offer. I'm a well-behaved lad who is polite with other dogs, and calm in the home. Basically, I'm just a happy little guy who wants to enjoy laying in the sun, sniff interesting things, and go on nice strolls with my humans. I also have a curly tail that won't quit, and the most expressive face. A toe on my right paw is malformed but this doesn't slow me down or cause me any discomfort.  Here's a video that shows my funny toe (it's really not that interesting!) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYQxs2UmCmI&list=PLhW1tPKt15h6abATUg-UEcfCoR9VqCldI&index=2 Although it would be a treat to have a back yard, as long as we can go for a couple of walks together each day, I'd be happy. I'm just not that into dog parks since I lose interest in other dogs pretty quickly.  I'm really more of a people dog and I'm very much looking forward to having one (or more) of my own!  When I meet strangers I can be a little shy, but once I get to know a person, my friendly, happy-go-lucky nature shows itself and my grin is bound to bring a smile to your own face too. Here I am enjoying a walk with one of my carers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTNHUbxxiEA&list=PL3UlJJYID8eHYF7T2_GfQGXpjWFTkYn4a&index=2 And check out how brave I am going for a little jog with a man I never met before:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIlapvSFN8Q&list=PL3UlJJYID8eHYF7T2_GfQGXpjWFTkYn4a&index=3 When it comes to cats I get a little over-enthusiastic so it would be best if I go to a cat-free home. I could certainly share you with another dog though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=940sguRsRn4&list=PLhW1tPKt15h6abATUg-UEcfCoR9VqCldI&index=5 I'm really grateful I have the chance to find my furever family.

My name is Coco and I could use your help. You see, I want so badly to be everybody's friend, but I just don’t know how. I need someone patient and dog experienced to guide me. Could you be the one? I am slender black labrador mix of 60lb and 23 inches tall and I was born in the Middle East a year and a half ago. I was rescued as a small puppy from a dangerous situation: a group of boys were hurling stones at my small body. When I first came to Canada I was placed in a home with another dog. But my clumsy and rough attempts at play quickly backfired and it was decided that the dog and I were not compatible. Now I am in a foster home and there are several other dogs here who I watch enviously as they run and play together. I’m like the kid at the schoolyard who tries too hard to make everyone like her and ends up instead with no friends. It’s so frustrating! The other dogs don’t really like me because I am too rough and eager and I don’t seem to speak their language. I annoy them by nipping at their heels and ears and sticking my butt in their faces. Then they get mad and I get snarly and mouthy (though not really aggressive) and it’s all so very frustrating. I have so much energy and I long to run with those guys. If only someone could teach me the polite way to make friends. In a way I have a similar problem with people. I want so badly to be loved that I sometimes become over-excited and even nippy, when people give me attention. So you see my problem –  I am a healthy and energetic young dog with so much potential and so much enthusiasm. But, without meaning to be, I’m rude.  I recently bit through a winter jacket. No harm, no foul... but I have fears too that seem to trigger sometimes. I really need someone who understands Labbie type dogs and know how to pull me through these hardships. My foster mom will be working with a trainer and if I am adopted before my training is complete LALDR will continue to cover the cost in my new home for a further two months. Would you like to come and meet me? I have a feeling you will be the one to show me how to make friends and be loved. And once that happens, I will be the happiest, most grateful dog in the world.   I have been spayed, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD.   Looking for more furry friends?
