ALEXI - Special Needs (Arrived)

I am ALEXI. Please can you help me? I'm the sweetest special needs dog! I am a cute west highland terrier mix (around 10kg and 1.5 years old) and if you take a look into my deep brown eyes you will see how much I long for a chance to live a fulfilling, dog life. I have a mysterious past, that has left me with paralysis of all four limbs. I was found in an abandoned building in a middle-eastern country by some kind people. I was alive but unable to move. Nobody knows how I came to be there in that condition. I am now in a loving foster home, just North of Seattle, and have had an MRI. I have a ruptured disc / ivdd of my c5-c6, which has caused paralysis in my four limbs. I am having some therapy, acupuncture and I'm taking special herbs. My foster mama does my stretches and exercises daily. At this point I can not sit, stand or walk and my bladder has to be expressed every 4-6 hours (except for when you're sleeping at night). I do have normal bowel movements and my foster mom has gotten to know my schedule, so I don't need to wear diapers. The rehab doctors and neurologist don't know if I'll even be able to walk again, since my trauma happened over a year ago and spinal cord / neurology conditions can be somewhat mysterious. Since the time I've been in foster care my neck has become stronger, as well as my limbs have started to show some strength, I do have some reflexes in my legs. My team thinks my rear legs maybe "waking up" very slowly, which is good news! 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 to help off set the cost of my rehab, as it has become quite expensive. http://www.gofundme.com/help-alexi My spirit is much stronger than my poor little body: in my dreams I am running like the wind and chasing butterflies. I get so excited to go outside, smell the grass and the leaves. Every time my human comes to give me love I do the wiggles. 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. I'd love a family who has a nice doggy friend for me, and someone who is home often as I need a lot of care. I like to be around my humans, and in the same rooms, and outside on adventures (I have a special dog backpack that I use to join). Someone who is physically fit as I need to be moved and carried often, and I will need to continue therapy. I am not too bothered by cats, but I'll admit I bark at them sometimes, and other times I ignore them. 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. If 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. I have been vaccinated and micro chipped. My adoption fee is $300. Please see our adoption guidelines at www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca. Disclaimer: In order to keep both dogs and children safe, the Board of Directors has decided that unless a representative of LALDR has personally met the dog or has been satisfied by the international rescue about the dogs' ability to live with kids, we will not approve an adoption to a family with children age 8 or younger.

UPDATE: Foster home found. Hello Canada, my name is Archie and I want to thank you for saving my life. I am a 6 year old, brindle coloured male terrier cross of 38lb, and until now I was living the terrifying life of a dog destined for human consumption. I was on a dog meat farm in South Korea. I am alive today because of the wonderful work done by the Humane Society International/Canada. They rescue dogs like me, close down the farms and try to provide education and resources for the 'farmer' to turn to humane sources of income. As you can imagine, I have not survived such an ordeal unscathed. Recovering from the terror of my time on a meat farm will require patience and understanding from my future adopters. I had not ever known that the human hand was capable of gentleness until I came here, but I am starting now to see that there is a different kind of human in the world; one who shows compassion for creatures like me. Due to a spinal injury in my years in Korea, I have a very ungainly walk and it takes me a little effort to get to my feet and remain stable on my back legs. However, with a little stretch and enough space to move, I find that once I get going the rest of me seems to follow along and before you know it my legs are co-operating! Fortunately, my gait is something I am quite used to and I am not in any discomfort, so please don't let that concern you. After my years of confinement I am very reluctant to be crated or shut in small spaces and anything resembling a rope is frightening to me. However, the kind volunteers at the shelter here are gradually teaching me that not all humans are cruel. They are working with me to overcome my fears so that I will be able to walk on a leash like other dogs. I would love to feel the grass under my feet and the wind on my face, but because there is no fenced outside area accessible to me I have to stay inside. I am a clean boy though and I have learned to do my business in the area they prepared for me. My carer's here seem so happy with me because I will now gently take food from their hands. I have started to feel trust for these humans and it is a new and wonderful feeling for me. In fact it is so good to see them each day that I even wag my tail and run around in circles to let them know that I am happy. I don't think I knew my tail could wag before. As my spirit grows stronger so does my curiousity about the world and I am starting to cautiously explore my environment and introduce myself to some of the other dogs. I think I would enjoy sharing a home with another calm, non-threatening dog who could help give me confidence. I need stability and routine in my life to help me grow past my fears and I am relieved to tell you that I recently found a foster home with a caring and patient lady who wants to help me learn to trust. Eventually I hope to find my forever home, but for now I am taking one day at a time and making baby steps toward becoming a more confident me. Today (October 11th) was a big day for me. I met trainer, James, of ArfArfBarkBark.com and something amazing happened. I was able to let him touch me all over my body - woweeeee!! That's huge for me because I have been so fearful of touch that I would only allow small pets on my head before. There is a new photo of me and I am actually smiling! Things are looking up folks. There's life in the old dog yet. I am vaccinated and will be neutered by the time of my adoption. My adoption fee is $100 CAD.

Hello to a kinder, gentler world. My name is Arista and it is my misfortune that I live here in the Middle East where I am literally treated like garbage. I am a young female mixed breed dog who looks a little like a combination of yellow labrador and Anatolian shepherd. I weigh approximately 55lb and I am around 1 1/2 years old. I was first spotted by a kind lranian expat who regularly feeds stray cats and dogs when she comes back to visit family. She saw how hungry I was and stopped at the side of the road to feed me. She was touched by the pleading look in my eyes and came back later in search of me. By that time, however, the city workers had found me. These heartless people scooped me up into a dumpster along with all the trash, breaking my bones in the process. Later they tossed me on the garbage heaps outside the city and left me to die. But here is where I would like my story to begin so I can forget about all that. The compassionate expat lady came in search of me and found me lying there in pain amidst all that garbage. She took me straight to a vet who operated on me to repair my broken bones. I am now recovering well and being cared for in a foster home while I wait for you to find me. My foster guardian found that I was very good in the car and I can already walk well on a leash and am pretty much house trained. While I am not fond of cats, I do O.K with other dogs with the proper introduction. But for me there is something that I am far more interested in than any other animals and that is people. Big, little, adult or child, I love them all and will roll on my back with my tail furiously wagging to greet every one of them. The home of my dreams would be filled with people for me to love. Anything else is just gravy! I long to have a life filled with love and security and I have heard whispers of that possibility in a place called Canada. Please get me out of this country where they equate dogs with vermin and trash. Let me come home with you. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

AZURE

Female Puppy Siberian Husky (mixed)

Greetings dear people of the great land of Canada. I am a Siberian Husky. My name is Azure. It matches me. Just look at the beautiful color of my blue eyes. My weight is 47 lbs with a height of 19 1/2 inches tall. At 6 months old, I am still just a baby. I was not treated well here in the Middle East. My rescuer found me in an old warehouse. I was fastened to a short chain. I didn't have good food to eat, often it was just bread. The mean people who had me also punished me all the time. When I was found, I was very scared and extremely thin. I also had wounds on my body. I had trouble walking because my feet did not have the strength to hold me up well. I am doing much better now though, thanks to the help of my angelic rescuers. Poor nutrition has stunted my growth however, so I will likely not achieve the full size of most dogs of my breed. My vision is also impaired and so I see mostly shadows and movements. The doctors have said it is a congenital issue. I can move along quite well though, as long as you do not change around furniture on me or suddenly jump into my limited vision, as that would startle me. As long as you let me know you are coming, I am fine. I do very well with people and love playing and touching. Probably due to lack of having been socialized with other dogs, I am afraid of them and will bare my teeth. This is likely due to my vision, as well. I suddenly see a shadow and smell a dog and it causes my reactions, not knowing their intent. I am now good with the dog the rescuer has in her home, but that was not the case the first day. I tried to get after her dog, but that dog barked at me. My rescuer keeps me in a quiet area when she is gone, but I hang out with her dog when she is home. So, I imagine if properly introduced and given some time, I would be okay with another dog. I have heard vision impaired dogs sometimes learn to rely on another dog to help them, kind of like having a seeing eye dog. Haha. See, I have a sense of humor... it seems to be a Husky trait. Maybe it could help me though. It would be best if it is not a small dog, I am not so good with small dogs. Perhaps because I can't see them at my level and it spooks me when they suddenly bump my legs. I can be protective of my food, until you talk and let me know it is you, then I am fine. Due to my condition, children would probably not be the best people to be around. It would be best if I were the only dog, though again that all depends. If I had a more unchanging environment that had a stable routine would be the ultimate. Quick movements suddenly in front of me can throw me off, until I learn what is normal. If I could find a home where we can share special time snuggling (that is one of my favorite things) and taking walks, that would be so sweet. I bet I could learn to play tug or find hidden things using my nose. I just love playing with humans. My eyes may be sub par, but my sense of smell is becoming highly honed. Who knows, I bet I would be better than any other dog doing scent work games. I so look forward to a home of my own where my Husky personality can blossom. We are very smart and energetic dogs you know. In time as I learn trust, I could probably even go on trail hikes with you... so long as we stay tethered together. Please give me a chance to show you my loving qualities. I have not been spayed/neutered, as I am too young yet. I am vaccinated & micro-chipped though. My adoption fee is $400.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada. Sterilization is required. My spay/neuter is mandatory for my adoption to be finalized.

Hello - my name is Bailey.. I am a timid 1 year -old mixed breed pup who looks like I am golden retriever/shepherd mix. I was found in a dumpster in the Middle East at such a young age that my eyes were still closed. Luckily they had a nursing mom at the shelter I was taken to. My surrogate mom took good care of me and fed me until I was strong enough to be on my own. After that I began paying it forward by being motherly to other puppies at the shelter. Now I have arrived in Canada where everything is different, my timid nature is very evident. All this change and turmoil has left me nervous and afraid to go outside, especially when it is dark. I hope you can understand what a challenge it is for me to be surrounded by all these new sights, sounds, smells. Even the kind words that people say to me sound unfamiliar. I long to find a patient, loving person to give me a forever home where I am the only dog in the house so that I can feel secure. I know that I will gain confidence over time and it would be so helpful for me to live with someone who appreciates my need to have a calm, routine life while I learn that I am safe. Inside of me there is a free-spirited, happy young dog just waiting to be discovered when I find my perfect place in this world. Could you be the one to help me find my happy place? I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $550.00. Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca.

Hi all you friendly humans, Ballerina here. I am a sweet-faced, eager-to-please female lab/heeler cross (I think). I am 2 years young, 15" tall to my shoulder and I weigh about 20lb. At present I am a resident of a shelter in Vietnam, but I am anxiously looking for a home because the shelter has run out of funds and has to close by the end of the year. I was just a few days old when my mom and my 7 siblings were kicked out by the homeless man who had been taking care of us. It is very dangerous to be out on the street in this country because dogs are used for meat by some here. We were fortunate to have been picked up by the people who work at the shelter or we would not have survived. They have taken good care of me at the shelter and I have made lots of friends, both canine and human. I can be a bit dominant with some dogs, but everyone here soon figures out the pecking order and we all get along fine. There is even a very big and confident cat who sometimes strolls amongst us. I have tried to engage him and make him play with me, but once or twice he's given me a swat on the face and I have to admit I ran away from him fast. (Don't tell anyone but I may be a teensy bit afraid of him!) For a while I was fostered in a home along with a small puppy whom I adored. I would love to have a little buddy like that again one day. Maybe my new home will have another dog friend for me - that would be nice. But most important for me is that I would have people to love. People who would enjoy doing active things with me, but then would also appreciate how I can be calm and peaceful when the time is right. If I am really, really lucky, one of those people is reading this right now and picturing just how this little Ballerina would fit perfectly into their world. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $500CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Hello, my name is Benji and I have been described as a "loveable ball of fluff". My appearance suggests I could be part lab and part shepherd, perhaps Anatolian Shepherd, but my personality definitely leans more toward laid-back labrador. At 7 years of age I am beginning to despair of ever leaving here. Surely there's someone out there who wouldn't mind sharing their life with an affable, one-eyed dog? Life is a little different for dogs in Mexico, some get to roam around and do what they want. My people actually surrendered me to the shelter here because I was constantly being attacked by some loose neighbourhood dogs. This is how I lost my eye. I am a really, really good dog. I am very friendly and loving and I get along well with other dogs, even though I have had run ins with some bad hombres. I walk very well on a leash and I am always willing and enthusiastic to go for walks. I am very affectionate with my humans and love to lick to show my love. I will also gently hold your hand with my mouth sometimes. My ideal home would have a fenced yard with space for me to wandeR about. That and people to love is all I need to be the happiest dog in the world. Until then, I will be here, waiting and hoping, as I have always done . I have been neutered & vaccinated. A microchip can be provided upon arrival for the adopter to take to their vet. The dog must be chipped and registered to complete the adoption profile. LALDR will complete the registration of the chip with the adopter. My adoption fee in $400.00 CAD and this includes my airfare to Canada Please see our adoption guidelines as www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca Disclaimer: In order to protect both dogs and children the Board of Directors has decided that unless a representative of LALDR has personally met the dog or has been satisified by the international rescue of the dogs' ability to live with children, we will not approve a family for adoption.

Hello, it's me, Birdie. If you play golf, you will know that a birdie is a really good thing, and I'm hoping you will feel that way about me. I am an 9 month old male mixture of possibly lab and doberman, but it's hard to know for sure, because I was found on the streets of a city in the Middle East. If my kind saviour had not come along when they did, I would not be alive to tell my story today. Somebody who does not deserve to be called human, was trying to hang me. It is hard to even think about it. I have to admit that my experience at the hands of that monster has left me a little fearful of strangers upon first meeting them. But, like most dogs, I am eager for human affection and it usually doesn't take me too long to come around if you are kind and friendly to me. I long to have a constant human companion, so we can build our love and trust in one another and become best forever friends. Right now, I am living in a shelter where I get to play with lots of other dogs and I enjoy that. But the best thing in the world would be to have a home of my own where I could feel loved and safe and where I could finally discover the joy of bonding with my humans. I know I take up a bit of space because I am a large dog, but if your heart has room in it for me, I'm sure we could make the rest of it work just fine. A young pup like me has so much to learn and so much to give. All I need is the place and the person. Are you my person? I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $600 CAD, includes my airfare to Canada.

Hello, sweet little Blueberry here. I am a 6 year old, female dachsund/chihuahua mix from Mexico and I weigh a little under 10lb. I spent the majority of my life being used for breeding purposes in a puppy mill. It was not a good life and it has left me quite timid and shy around people until I get to know and trust them. I am finally discovering that there are people in the world who will be kind and loving towards me and do not care only about using me to make financial gain, like those who ran the puppy mill. What my future holds I can only imagine, but I have heard that there are wonderful dog-loving people in your country and I am praying that one of you will open your heart to me. When we meet you may think that I am crying with happiness, but that is just a little watery-eye problem I have that is easily addressed with my daily eye-drops. My perfect home would be a place of calm where I can build my confidence and grow to love and bond with my person. I really don't need a lot, just someone patient and understanding who will offer me the kind of life that will erase my puppy-mill memories. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $500 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Are you looking for a sweet little thing to add to your life? How about me, BonBon? I am a 4 year old, female poodle mixture and I am 14" tall and weigh 19lb. Presently I am being fostered by a lady in Mexico who seems to have room in her heart for lots and lots of homeless dogs like me. But before she brought me here I had already been in a much bigger animal shelter for a while before being adopted. I was so excited to be going to what I thought would be my forever home, but it turned out the resident dog was not happy when I showed up. He attacked me and my new family had to separate me from him for my own safety. They put me in an outside kennel where I was so lonely and unhappy. Not being around human company is torture for a dog like me who wants nothing more than to spend my days snuggling with people. It was a great relief when the kind lady who runs this foster home showed up and offered to bring me here. Now I live indoors again and if I am lucky I get to spend some time being petted and tickled by my foster mom. I follow her everywhere in the hope that I can snuggle up to her, but there are just too many other dogs here needing her attention. There is even a cat that lives here and sometimes gets to sit on her lap. It makes me jealous when I see that but what can you do! If you are out there somewhere reading about me, please, please let me come home with you. Even if you already have another dog, I would be willing to share your love (I don't mind other dogs, it's just that I prefer people), just as long as we have lots of snuggle time together. I'll be right here waiting for you to send for me. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $500 CAD includes my airfare to Canada. Please review our adoption guidelines at http:www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca Disclaimer: In order to protect both dogs and children, the Board of Directors has decided that unless a representative of LALDR has personally met the dog, or has been satisfied by the international rescuer of the dogs' abiltiy to live with children, we will not approve a family for adoption.

Hello world, the name is Boomer! My name has got the same spunk as my personality. I am a happy and affectionate 1 year old, male, Golden Retriever mixed with a Canaan Dog. As a young pup, I still have room to grow and will grow up to be a large dog, but that just means there is more of me to love! Both me and my sister, Serenity (also listed) are living in the Middle East but we are very excited to one day come to Canada. Our story starts when we are only 3 months old. Both my sister and I became very sick with Parvo and scabies. We would not have made it if it were not for a very kind, dog-loving angel who found us. They paid for our medical bills and nursed up back to health. Although she loves the beautiful dogs we are growing up to be, they are having financial trouble caring for us. With their blessing and a little bit of luck we hope to find an amazing home with families that love us. At first impression I may seem shy and a bit timid, but do not be fooled, once you start showering me with affection, I will become your best friend. Lovable describes me well. I love playing with other dogs and people are pretty great too, especially when they give me belly scratches. As a spry young dog, I have lots of energy to burn and things to learn! With genes like mine, teaching things will not be hard. I would love to impress people one day with all my tricks. My favourite way to get exercise is running around in the back yard and wrestling with some of my canine buddies. Having a dog companion in the home would be really nice. It would be even better if it was my sister Velcro, but we do not have to go to a home together. With long legs like mine, I need a place where I can stretch them and run around - so maybe take me to the lake or to a dog park to explore and make friends. Though I love people and other dogs I have never met these strange creatures called cats before or any kids for that matter, so it would be best it was a dog home. Even though I spend my time running around, I still love time to cuddle up under a blanket or curl up by your feet while you watch a movie.

Hello Canada, my name is Bramble and I am sooooo tired of living here with all these dogs. I am a female fox terrier/chihuahua mix and though a lady generally does not share these things, I will tell you I am 5 years old and weigh 15lb. I was rescued from the streets of Mexico where I struggled to find enough food and was constantly in danger from cars and other dogs. So I am grateful that I am safe and have regular meals and a roof over my head. But I am a bit of a loner when it comes to the othe dogs and I really find it all too much to be constantly around them and their barking and whining and general over-excited nature. I tend to sit alone and dream of another world. Sadly, my tendency to sit quietly in a corner has meant that I am overlooked when potential adopters come to visit. Somehow they can not see that I am a well-mannered little lady who just does not like to show off like the other dogs. I would really love some human attention though. Perhaps one day someone somewhere will realise that an unassuming, independent little dog like me is just what they are looking for. Until then, I will sit here alone in my corner, quietly dreaming of a different life. I am spayed, vaccinated* and microchipped and my adoption fee of $500 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Hello, I am Brave. My name was given to me by the people who hope to rescue me and I am trying hard to live up to it. I am just 9 months old, a slender male Desi dog, (a breed unique to India) of about 35lb and I was born and still live, on the streets in Haryana, India. At birth, I was one of a litter of 5 and 3 of us now remain here, near the university, where we compete with other dogs for scraps of food, dodging cars and motorcycles daily. It is a hard life, and for many of us, it will be a short one. In my case, I have already beaten the odds. When I was just a small puppy I contracted parvovirus, an often deadly illness for small pups, but amazingly I fought it off. In the months after that I was run over several times on the busy roads, and again I managed to avoid serious injury. Then, earlier this year I contracted Distemper, another common and dangerous canine disease. Once again, my strength of will helped me survive and I am healthy again. This time however, I was left with after-effects: I experience some tremors and twitches and I am now partially blind. I have been so brave and determined through all this, but now my partial blindness makes me vulnerable. The other dogs around sense my weakness and I am an easy target for them. I try to hide but I am sometimes disoriented and confused and run into traffic. Thankfully, there are some kind people who come and go from the university regularly and they often bring me scraps of food. I trot up to them hopefully and I am so grateful for their kindness that I sometimes even roll on my back to show them my belly. I have learned that there are wonderful humans who seem to enjoy stroking my fur and scratching behind my ears, even offering me food; but then they walk away and leave me here. I dream of a world where I would live without hunger and fear; where I am part of a loving human family, with perhaps another dog in our litte pack and an opportunity to run just for the fun of it. Please, would you help me find that world? I will be fully vaccinated and neutered by the time of my adoption. My adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Hello people, my name is Bristol and I am a young female mix of shepherd and labrador with the sweetest brown eyes you ever saw. Although I am only a little over a year old I have already given birth to a litter of puppies. We were found living on the streets in a large city in the Middle East and were fortunate to be taken into a shelter there. Good fortune found me once againe when, thanks to LALDR, my puppies and I all found homes in Canada. Though they love me greatly, my adopters have come to the conclusion that their busy and growing family is not a good fit for me, especially as I was recently attacked by another dog in the community courtyard, which has left me quite fearful of going outside. Because they care about me and have seen what a sweet dog I can be, my family want to help me find a home where I can regain my confidence. Where I can go back to being the dog who used to joyfully run on the trails and the beaches, and would dance with excitement when I knew a walk was imminent. I too long to get back to my happy place, but that can't be here where I am haunted by the fear of being attacked in the courtyard. My mom feels I am starting to gradually regain my confidence and I am now going back to the doggy daycare where I am well-loved by all the staff. However, understandably, our courtyard still triggers my fear so I am reluctant to go outside because we have to walk throught it. I confess that I can also be nervous of strange men at first, but as you can see from the photo, I am able to get over that and will even enjoy having my belly scratched. Once I am attached to my people I am very bonded and I don't like being left alone for too long so I would love to have a home where someone is able to spend lots of time with me. The best place for me now would be a quieter rural or suburban home, perhaps with another calm dog to help build my confidence. I currently live with children and I am fine with them because they are old enough to understand my nervousness and the need to be gentle with me. Although I have tried, it seems the cat and I just have not been able to reach an understanding, so a cat-free home would be preferable. Leaving here will be sad for all of us, but if I am to have the carefree, tail-wagging kind of life a dog dreams of, it is a necessary step. All I need now, is to find someone who might be willing to offer me that chance. I am spayed, micro-chipped and vaccinated and my adoption fee is $500.00 CAD.

Help. URGENT assistance needed. Buttercup needs a foster or adoptive family ASAP. Hello, I am Buttercup and I am still patiently waiting to be noticed on here. I am a shepherd beagle mix of about 4 years old; a sweet & friendly girl, who is just waiting to bring sunshine into your life. My story begins on a lonely road, where a shelter staff member saw a weak and skinny puppy of only about 2 months old. I was so emaciated I couldn't even stand up on my own. This rescuer took me to her home, as the shelter was not going to be suitable for my incredibly weak state. She helped me regain my strength and then took me to her rural home. Things probably don't sound so bad for me here, but the fact is that my life is at risk. I am a very affectionate girl and want to spend all my time with my people, but they have to leave me outside often so I end up leaping the fence in search of human companionship. The people that take care of me are very worried that I will get picked up by the city workers and killed. So, my situation is rather urgent and I need to get to Canada fast. Ideally, I would love a home where I can play, run around, go for walks, but most of all be living in the house with you. I get along with other dogs, and kids too, so you see, it would be pretty easy to add me to your life. Wouldn't it? Perhaps doing a bit of agility sports would be a fun thing for you and me? If you want to do some other kind of activity instead, that is just fine with me, as long as we can do it together. You see, all I really want is someone to love. I am spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $500.00 CAD, which includes my transport to Canada Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca Disclaimer: In order to keep both dogs and children safe, the Board of Directors has decided that unless a representative of LALDR has personally met the dog or has been satisfied by the international rescue about the dogs' ability to live with children, we will not approve a family for adoption.

Hello people of Canada. I am Calypso, a friendly, young male german shepherd mix, around 1 1/2 years old, 60lb, and full of enthusiasm for life. As a small puppy I started hanging out near an apartment building in Odessa, Ukraine because some kind people there would feed me and give me attention. There is one special young woman there who comes out often to play with me and she has even taken me for walks. She introduced me to a fellow visiting from Canada and he has decided to make it his mission to find me a home there. He contacted all the local shelters but they are full and they tell him nobody here wants a dog my size. They all want little dogs because they live in apartments. Yes, I know I'm too big to be a lap dog, but I have so many other great things to offer that will more than make up for your empty lap. My outgoing, friendly nature and joyful spirit means I enjoy every encounter I have with people, big or small, old or young. I meet so many different people coming and going from the apartment building and I greet them all with my tail wagging and my eyes smiling. Plus my youthful energy and eagerness to please could easily be channeled into learning new tricks and tasks. And when it comes to dogs, I think they are just great too and I love to play with them if I get the chance. It would be ideal if I could find a home with an active family who would enjoy playing with me and taking me for hikes on the trails or to socialise in the dog parks. I would be happy living with another dog, or children over 8 years old. I confess I do chase the occasional cat or bird I see on the street, so if you have one of those creatures I may not fit in. Like most young dogs, I would probably benefit from some basic training to teach me how to be the best Canadian dog I can be. I would be most willing to do that because I am a lover of people and what makes you happy also makes me happy. Please think about making me part of your pack. There is someone here who is willing to bring me to Canada at the beginning of November if I have a home to go to. Can that home be with you, please? I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Hello Friends, my name is Casha. I am a 1 1/2 year old, female labrador retriever/Australian cattle dog mix (just a guess!), currently being fostered here in Canada. As nice as it is here, I am longing to find my forever home. Can you help me please? I was born on the streets of a big city in the Middle East and I was just a wee puppy when 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'd 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 some time at a shelter I was fortunate to be brought to Canada and placed in an adoptive home where I soon bonded with my owner and one of the other two resident dogs. My owner worked with me for a while to help me become a good pet and I am proud to report that I am crate-trained, house-trained, can walk well on a leash and know my basic commands. Impressive huh? Unfortunately I did not get along with one of the dogs there and I guess 3 dogs was just a little too much, so one of us had to go. Now that I am in the care of an experienced foster mom we are working on my, shall we say, 'personal growth'. Because I am a little fearful I tend to come on strong when I meet new dogs, so, with the advice of the talented dog trainer James (ArfArfBarkBark.com), she is teaching me how to say a more polite hello. After proper introductions I have become friends with some of her other dogs and I just love to run around and play with them. Mom also says that I have a high prey drive. I don't know; is that a good thing? I do know I find small creatures very exciting and I like to chase them, so for that reason, I should not live in a home with little dogs, cats or squirrels! My lovely foster mom has already taken a shine to me (I have that effect on people) and I enjoy entertaining her with my mischievous nature and energetic playfulness. Sadly she will be moving to a smaller place in November so, once again, I will have to find a new place to live. I long for a quiet, calm home, perhaps with another doggy-friend, but most importantly with someone patient, but firm, who will take me for long walks or play with me in the yardto burn off my energy. After that I would be very happy to let you scratch my belly, stroke my ears or lovingly feed me treats. I bet that's something that is missing in your life right now, isn't it? Well then, what are you waiting for; let's go home together and I can help fill the void. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Howdy folks, I am Chai, named so for my beautiful colouring (it is just like Chai Tea). I am a sleek and elegant 3 year old, male saluki mix. Sadly, my current loving family is moving to a location with no yard, so I am in search of a new local Canadian family to welcome me into a new home. A little bit about me: Life started out a bit rough as I was born on the streets of the Middle East. It was only when I was hit by a car at 6 months and left to die, that a kind lady took me in. I had a broken jaw and front leg, but the vets were able to fix me up. I am quite the survivor and this early challenge in life has not diminished my love of people one little bit. It did leave me with a minor handicap in that I can only open my mouth a little bit. But it's enough to eat and drink and bark (although I rarely do that). It also means that I can sometimes get short of breath when exercising, especially when running or playing vigorously with other dogs, which I do love to do. I was also left with a quirky eye and ear so I am always winking at you, which adds to my adorableness. Being a sight hound, cats and small animals are very tempting, and if given the opportunity I will chase them. At the moment I am working with a trainer to teach me how to behave around strange dogs when I am on leash. I tend to be reactive to them, but am improving with training. I am the kind of dog who is full of energy outside but calm and peaceful inside. For example, if you were to take me to the dog park, I would impress you with my athletic stride and run laps around all the other dogs. But bring me back home and I like nothing more than to stretch out in the sunshine or snooze on the floor with my paws crossed in front of me. My perfect home would have a fenced yard where I could burn off some energy and maybe chase some flies (oneof my favourites sports). I would enjoy living with older children too because that might mean more people to impress with my tricks. Being very smart I know how to sit, lay down, high five and place, all of which I perform much faster if treats are involved. Once you know me I'm sure I will melt your heart with my loving nature. Please tell me that Chai is just your cup of tea! I am neutered and vaccinated. My adoption fee is $400.

Hello, my name is Chase. I am a handsome 1.5 yr old male German Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix, originally from the Middle East, but thankfully, now in Canada. The early part of my life includes a drama-filled rescue when I was an emaciated, homeless pup about to be killed in a routine 'extermination' of strays. If my rescuer had not been so brave and resisted the demands of the officails to release me to them, I would not be here today to tell my story. That's all behind me now and here I am in this wonderful place called Canada. Now that I have been here a little while I have been introduced to cats and I have to admit that I am not a fan! Nor do they like me. Unfortunately this was impossible to know before I arrived since I had never encountered these bizarre creatures. So my new home just isn't going to work out as the cats were here first. So now I am looking for a new home without cats. In fact I think I would prefer a home where I could be the only dog too. After a past like mine I long for the love and affection I never had, so once we are bonded, I don't want to have to share you with another dog. I am fine hanging out with dogs when we go out, but between you and me, I love people more. I would make a great hiking buddy if you're into that kind of thing. Or we could just walk and talk. (You talk and I listen.) Later we could do this comfy snooze-in-front-of-the-t.v thing that I have discovered since living in a home. I just know we could be a great team. So how about it, will you make my day by filling out an adoption application for me? I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $550 Canadian.

Hi, Cheena here. I am a young (about 3 years) and energetic girl with a pretty apricot-hued coat and an affectionate nature. I weigh about 19lbs and stand about knee high. My foster says that I do not shed very much, almost none at all! Two years ago I was in a bad place, struggling to stay alive on the streets of Mexico, scavenging for food and running from traffic and other, bigger dogs. Some good people rescued me and I was brought to Canada to find a home. Boy, was I lucky! I have spent the last two years living with a wonderful family, but apartment living in a downtown area is hard for me because I am such an active dog. I felt confined and anxious and would sometimes bark to release my stress. Recently a new human addition to the family arrived and there just isn't the time, space or energy for me, so, sadly, I have to be re-homed. When I picture my future life I dream of an active family with a yard for me to play in and time for us to spend together. My tendency to chase things means I probably shouldn't live with cats, but I have spent lots of time around dogs at the dog park and doggy daycare and I enjoyed both of those places. I need to burn off my energy so I can be calm and relaxed at the end of the day when you and I can cuddle in front of the t.v. I know that's one of the activities human's seem to love, and I make a good t.v-watching companion because I don't care what we watch! Full disclosure here; I always fall asleep in front of the t.v anyway. You can see how cute I am when I'm sleeping in my photo's. Doesn't it make you want to take me home with you? My adoption fee is $500. I am not microchipped, but Loved at Last will provide one for me to take with me to my new family. I am spayed and up to date on my records.

Hello out there, it's me, Chuck, the adorable little man who plans to steal your heart. Check out my photo's and you will see I am a good-looking shih-tzu, mixed perhaps with a soupcon of terrier and a sprinkling of Lhasa Apso. I am around 3 years of age and I weigh approximately 12 lb. I was born in a middle eastern country where the life of a dog is way, way down on the hierarchy of living things. I ended up as the property of a drug addict who, needless to say, did not treat me well. But not so long ago I was rescued, with the help of a compassionate police officer, and right now I am delighted to tell you that I am living safely in a foster home. I gotta say, they know how to treat a pooch here! Right away I was given a bath and had my coat cut and brushed and now I look like a million dollars, if I do say so myself. It turns out I do have a couple of little physical conditions that you should know about. The first is that my spine is a bit wonky. This means I walk a little differently than other dogs, but so what? It may be having an affect on my ability to relieve myself, but my foster mom finds that this can be helped if she puts olive oil or edible parrafin in my food. (Phew, I'm glad to get that little personal detail out of the way.) Another unique feature about me is that I have some hard little lymph nodes in various places about my body. Whether these things are a result of a beating in my former life, or just congenital, I'm not saying, but they are harmless. If you and I are going to share a life together, there's something else you need to know: I am very affectionate, and rapidly becoming more so as I learn how to do the whole cuddle thing. Are you the type who can handle that much love? By the way, if you already have another small dog in your life, I'm cool with that, but I do feel a little intimidated by larger dogs so I may bark at them at first. Cats are an unknown quantity for me at this point. If you are the kind of person who would be around a lot to give me back some of that loving, we could be perfect for each other. I really don't enjoy spending endless hours on my own (been there, done that) and anyway, I'm counting on you wanting to be with me as much as I want to be with you. See you very soon I hope. I am vaccinated and neutered and my adoption fee is $500 CAD* which includes my airfare to Canada. *Adoption fees will be collected via etransfer or cheque. Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca Disclaimer: In order to protect both dogs and children, the Board of Directors has decided that unless a representative of LALDR has personally met the dog, or has been satisified by the international resue of the dogs' ability to live with children, we will not approve a family for adoption.

Hello - my name is Coco! I am a Maltipoo which is a cross of the Maltese and Poodle. Sophistication mixed in with cuteness. I am around 6-7 years old (this is a guess), weigh 15lb and I am still full of playfulness and energy. I originally came from the Middle East and have been in Vancouver for 2 years. I am currently in a wonderful foster home that really wanted to adopt me but due to the other little dog's aggression toward me I need to find a home of my own. They have tried multiple trainers but that silly dog won't learn. I however, listen extremely well and when he charges me on the other side of the fence, I ignore him and go about my business. While I am able to ignore him, I am not looking to share my home with any other dogs. I tend to be fearful when I encounter strange dogs or other animals, so I would be happiest if I were the only pet. When I was rescued, I had a broken jaw and my bottom teeth had to be pulled. Other than a crooked smile, it doesn't affect me at all. At dinner time, I like to take my kibble from one room to the next as I like to eat it on my dog bed. I love my doggy toys and will play with them quietly all day. My favorite toy is a glow ball and I run back and forth with it. I can chase that thing forever. I am so adorable to watch that I know you will continue to buy me lots of toys so I can play with them all. A few more things about me; I love going for walks and car rides, I love to stare at cats on the other side of the fence, I enjoy sleeping under the covers and on your pillow, and I can be left alone with no worries. Ideally I would like to be in a quiet home. Call me a recluse, but I am happiest when I can avoid being around unfamiliar people. I have been know to lash out at strangers, so I need familiarity and routine because it soothes me and makes me feel safe. My adopters will need to understand that I take time to feel secure and it will take a calm but confident person to help me reach a peaceful state of mind. I am about to meet dog trainer James Tsai (arfarfbarkbark.com) so I can learn how to be a more well-behaved dog when I am around strangers. Once I have had some training you and I will be able to get to know each other. Then you will discover just how loving and entertaining I can be. I know my foster mom has so many stories about me that she would like to share with you, it almost makes me blush to think about! I am spayed, microchipped and up to date on all my shots (2018!) and local so we can meet. My adoption fee is $400 CAD. Note from foster - Coco is the best dog I have ever had and I would keep her if we could get our dogs to get along. You have no idea how adorable she is and how amazing she will be to the right home. Please do not apply if you insist on taking her to the dog park or have a very busy home, young children or cats. Please do apply if you want a dog that will love you forever and will leap into your arms. She is non-shedding.

Howdy, DaisyDuke here. I am a 4 year old female mixture of various good-looking fluffy breeds, possibly a bit of spitz and a bit of chow in me, all blended to perfection, wouldn't you say? I weigh 24lb and my height is 17 inches to the shoulders. I have been living in this Vietnam animal shelter for quite a long time. When I was first brought here I was in a sorry state. I spent the first year of my life at the end of a chain so not only was I weak and skinny, I also had hepatitis and a severe case of mange, plus I was extremely shy and fearful. If you take a look at my pictures you can see how healthy and vibrant I am today. They have looked after me very well here and I feel safe and loved by the staff. It is so sad that, due to lack of funds, this place has to close down and all of us need to find homes before the end of the year. You are probably wondering why I have not been adopted before now, given that I am such a pretty girl. Well, I think it is because I am shy and when people come to look at the dogs I don't run up to them like the others do. It takes me a while to feel comfortable with new humans, but once I do I am extremely affectionate. The staff here will tell you I am all over them like a fluffy blanket! These people have become my family and with family I am the most loving and playful dog you could imagine. The dogs and cats who live here have also become my family and I get along well with all of them. I am nervous about the changes ahead and I worry that nobody will want me because I am not as outgoing as the others. Maybe there will be someone in Canada or the U.S that understands shy dogs like me. I think I would be fine in a home with another dog, or even a cat. I just need someone to be patient and gentle with me while I adjust to a new life and new guardians. If you give me the time I need I will give you back more love than you can handle. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $500 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Hi all, my name is Diesel. I am a loyal 2 year old male Great Pyrenees mix. I have lived my life on a farm, taking care of the livestock. But my owner became terminally ill and could no longer take care of himself, let alone me. I am now in the care of a foster home where I am living inside a house for the first time in my life. I take some time to trust new people; in fact it took a couple of days of her constant presence before I could trust my foster mom, but now I am very affectionate and loving toward her and I want nothing more than to be around her in the house. She has several other dogs too and I really enjoy sharing the home with them. We all love to play outside and, although I am a big guy, I know how to be respectful within the pack. When new people approach me, I tend to lunge and bark at them in an aggressive manner. I know this is not right and my foster mom has introduced me to a professional dog trainer who is working with me to fix this. They feel that I can overcome this behaviour and be ready for a forever home once the training is complete. On the plus side, I am house-trained, I know how to walk on a leash, I am smart and eager to learn. In my ideal world I would find a loving home with acreage and other dogs to share it with me. I know I am a lot of dog, but believe me, I have soooooo much potential. Once I've worked out the kinks, I will be a truly loving, loyal companion. I am vaccinated, dewormed, neutered and microchipped. My adoption fee is $500.
