ALASKA - URGENT

Female Puppy Siberian Husky (mixed)

Oh dear people of Canada. I am a Siberian Husky named Alaska. My name matches the beautiful color of my eyes, like the gorgeous blue glacier ice of Alaska. 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 retinal 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.

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 2.5 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! I am gaining movement. 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.

Hello Dog lovers, my name is Angie and I am a survivor of the Mexican dog meat trade. I am a stunning 2 year old, 50lb female Pittie/Lab mix with a gorgeous glossy black coat and a big smile. I am more like a "pocket-pittie" because I am small and stocky and only measure about 20" to my shoulders. I was wandering the streets as a stray dog and had recently given birth to a litter of 5 pups when we were all suddenly scooped up by a group of strange people. They took us to a restaurant where we were to have been killed and served as dinner. I can not bear to even think about it. Thankfully, the restaurant was raided by authorities and we were rescued, or so we thought. In fact, my puppies and I ended up in a high kill shelter where our fate was euthanasia. But fate had something else in store for us and once again, we were rescued. This time our rescuers drove us all the way to California where my puppies have all been adopted out to wonderful families. All that remains now is for me to find a family of my own. Because I had to protect my babies on the streets of Mexico, I am still working on socialization. For this reason, it would be best if I was placed in a home with no small children, cats, or dogs. I am currently working with a trainer in California where I am improving everyday! With continued training and a consistent routine, I can be good with other dogs. I am learning to walk properly on a leash and obey commands. All these kind people are showing me that there are caring humans who value dogs like me. I am starting to believe that someone will love me and want to take me home with them. Now my favourite part of every day is spending time with people; I just love them all so much. Do you think you could make room in your heart for me? I promise to love you will everything I have. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee is $550CAD 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 rescue of the dogs' ability to live with children, we will not approve a family for adoption.

Hi, how are you doing? I am Antoinette, a striking Weimaraner mix of between 2 and 3 years old and I weigh a healthy 75lb. I live in Mexico but would happily relocate to Canada or America in order to find my forever home. As far as I am concerned, there is no distance too great to overcome the love I feel for people, and most importantly for my future forever guardian. Nobody seems to know for sure how I came to be homeless, but it is pretty evident that I once had a home and a family who cared for me. These days I spend my days here at the rescue, surrounded by other dogs who are also waiting to find homes. I play well with them, but to be honest, I prefer the company of humans. You guys are the best! I am a high energy girl so I will need a home with a yard and preferably someone who would enjoy taking me for long walks or maybe even wants a jogging partner. Just think how much more fun it would be to go for walks with me by your side? I know it would be fun for me to do just about anything with you. Please adopt me soon so we can get started on sharing a wonderful life together. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Well, hellooooo Canada!! I am gobsmacked that I get to introduce myself to you. Here goes: My name is Anton. I am a one year old male Bull Terrier from China. I weigh approximately 50lb and around 20 inches tall. Now I have to tell you something really sad; it is illegal to own Bull Terriers here in Shanghai. (The same goes for some of my good friends here; German Shepherd's.) Consequently, there is no hope of me ever leaving this shelter unless someone overseas adopts me. So now you know why I am so excited to present myself to you. The local police called the shelter to tell them that I was one of several dogs they had picked up and that they should come and fetch us immediately. Thankfully the shelter staff are used to these phone calls and they know they must act quickly if they are to save our lives. So now I live here among all these other dogs (and some cats too). I enjoy interacting with the dogs and I don't mind the cats either, but what I love the most is being with people. The staff describe me as a very friendly, outgoing and playful kind of guy and they think I would make a great family dog. I have to agree; I would love a family to call my own. I often dream of being surrounded by my own human pack and it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I can happily share you with another dog or a cat; just so long as you love your Anton I'll be content. Please, please take me away from Shanghai. You are my only chance to have a home. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

*This will describe a dog needing foster placement ONLY. This application is for review by the foster team to assess foster homes. This is not to be reviewed by or utilized for adoption team purposes.* PATIENTLY WAITING PUP Hi, I am a "PATIENTLY WAITING PUP"... I can be anything from a few month old puppy to a dog in senior status. I come in all sizes and colors and often have a medium length coat. Even if I am at the older age range, I probably have not experienced the love of a family and certainly know nothing of the activity of a typical Canadian family, including car rides and the noise of household appliances. If I lived in a shelter before coming to you, I am probably savvy about how to integrate in a canine pack and avoid confrontation. In some cases, I may gain great security and confidence from a canine sibling, but in others I may be fearful of my place in the pack and growl. If I was in a foster home, I was probably hidden away to avoid being poisoned by neighbors or killed by the police. I might not ever have been outside at all. Whether I came from a shelter or a foster home, it is a good bet I never met a cat, and have not had much exposure to young children or babies. You can also be guaranteed that I have never been on a "walk", whether on leash or off. Some of us will have suffered severe neglect from our owners or suffered starvation and illness during our life on the street. As such, we may be food aggressive at first. Some of us might also be missing an eye, ears or a leg and hope you will be patient with our needs. Occasionally, we may even have paralyzed rear legs and need a wheelchair, which would be provided. We adapt quickly & are usually fast learners, but due to the traumas, may need time to gain confidence. Some of us may crave the attention, soaking it in, others of us may be more reserved and cautious, holding back until we feel more comfortable. You can pretty well bet, once we settle down, we will begin to flourish. Your help makes this possible. In any case, no matter what we have endured in our past lives and all we have suffered, once we become accustomed to our new lives, we will become incredibly joyous and grateful. We bond tremendously well in many cases too. I thank you for your desire to help us and hope that you will consider any one of us suggested by Loved at Last and be open to temporarily fostering a "PATIENTLY WAITING PUP". show less

Greetings people of North America. Applejack here. I am a male, Poodle and Shih Tzu mix. Standing 19-1/2 inches tall and all of 31 lbs, I am a polite with an mellow temperament. I may grow a smidgen more, but I am pretty much full grown, although I am still a puppy at 1-1/2 years old. My story comes to you from the Middle East, where I was rescued from a puppy mill. My fur was matted up and I had fleas real bad. Heck, my rescuer couldn't even see my face, because of the fur being a messy mass. I am healthy now though. They got me cleaned up, brushed out and rid of the fleas. I tend to be a quiet boy, a bit shy even. I am very friendly with other dogs, but I do not care much about playing with them. I am a gentle soul and prefer not to roughhouse. I usually just sit quietly in my cage. I like the shelter cat we have here. The staff is nice, so I have learned humans are good and I like them all. I have never been around children yet though. I think I would do well in a low to semi-active home. One that was not always rushing around, because I am a chill kind of guy. Another mild mannered dog or a kitty would be fine or I could be your one and only love. I certainly look forward to taking walks and hanging out in the park with you. Perhaps we can just sit quietly and snuggle. I bet you and I could find some fun things to do together. I am an observant type and learn quickly from watching. Please get me away from living in a shelter, where the staff has little time to interact with as much attention as us dogs all need. Bring me to your great land of sweet relief. Thank you very much. I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.

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 slightly ungainly walk and I drag my back feet a little. 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. In fact, in my foster home I have learned the joys of running around and playing with the resident dog. It's such a new and wonderful experience for me to do anything just for the fun of it. It would be really good for me if my future home included another relaxed, non-threatening dog who could help mentor me in the doggy ways of the world. I will miss my foster-brother, for sure. One of my lingering fears, due to my years of confinement, is being crated or shut in small spaces, so I really need to be free to roam around the house and yard. And because anything resembling a rope is still very frightening to me, I can not be leashed and taken on walks like other dogs. I will need to find a home with a fenced back yard so I can safely go outside. Here at my foster home I spend much of my time in the yard where I feel most comfortable. It took me a long time to choose to come inside, but now I will spend the night there and I am beginning to feel safe. My foster mom is very patient and gentle with me and I trust her enough to let her scratch my head and back, but it took me a while to get to that point. I guess I may never completely heal from my trauma and be the kind of dog that will roll on my back and let you give me belly rubs. But, if you are compassionate and patient and you care enough to let me find my own version of dog fulfillment, I believe we could bring happiness to each other. I am vaccinated but not yet neutered as going to a vet is still to scary for me .My adoption fee of only $200 CAD is low because I am unneutered.

A male of 1 years age and 40 lbs be me. As a Shepard mix, I stand 25-1/2 in tall. A somewhat shy, yet sweet boy am I. I had been living in a village in the Middle East, where people were teasing me because of my front leg problem. It was so difficult to find food and fight with other dogs just to get a portion to survive. I was becoming weak and getting injured fighting for food to stay alive. My luck changed when I was rescued. I am cared for better at the shelter, though life is still hard. Good news is they plan to operate on my leg in the near future. I am kind with other dogs, even after the life I had. I can be timid toward humans, but I like them a lot. You just have to win my trust. It was not easy having everyone always making fun of and poking at me before. So I guess maybe I am just more on the shy side. I do like to come up for hugs. I am not really too terribly active, so probably a lower activity home would be best. I much prefer just sitting around relaxing. So, if we could just hang around the backyard and soak up the sun being buddies that would be heaven. Or maybe you have a fireplace we can be toasty in front of watching TV. I am not opposed to taking some leisurely walks though. Maybe even going to meet some buddies and kick back at a dog park would be neat. I hope you make the choice to get me to Canada. I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.

Introducing me... Aurora. Like the brilliant Northern Lights, my personality is dazzling. As a female of just over 3 years age, I weigh 65 lbs and stand 22 1/2 tall. Best guess is that I am a Shepard mixed with a bit of Pointer. Sadly, life is very difficult for dogs in the Middle East. Life is no picnic and we struggle to just survive. The government tore down the shelter where I lived. Thankfully, a rescuer found me and brought me to a safe place. Although it is still a hard life here. Often, there is not as much food as we need and the rescuers are so busy and so few, that they haven't the time to devote the attention we would like. I do have doggie friends here to visit with though, so that helps to lessen the loneliness of not having my own family a little. I am a quiet and gentle dog with nice manners and a good temperament. I display no aggressions with food or anything. I like other dogs of all sizes. I know if you were to bring me to this Ca-na-da I hear about, you will find me to be a real treasure. Given time, I will show you the vast riches I possess. I am a bit shy and timid. If you get too close, too quickly, I can become afraid. But once I know you it is fine. So basically, I am calm and kind, but need time to trust people. My rescuers are currently training me to wear a collar, walk with a leash and learn how to communicate with people, so that I can feel safe around human beings. I would love being in a home that cherishes my uniqueness. There is no need to feel sorry for the fact I am missing a leg. I was born this way, so it is natural and normal for me. I am quite healthy. I can still run around and play. I can probably even go for hikes, although you will have to ensure what my abilities will be for distance and terrain. I am sure in time, we will each learn about the other. If you already have a dog who would enjoy a companion too, I would be just as happy having a friend to hang out with, as I would be getting the love all to myself. Being with a family where I can just snuggle up and get scratches behind my ears would be a dream come true. I am still quite young, just finishing puppyhood, so we will still have many years together. Hoping to be on a plane soon heading to you. I really want to be somewhere I do not have to compete to survive. I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $500.00, this includes my airfare to Canada.

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?

Hello, I am Ballerina, a petite, sweet-faced, eager-to-please female boston terrier mix. 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 wee bit bossy 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. Everyone around here is kind of sad right now because they have run out of money to keep this place going. The few of us that are still here are getting really worried wondering where we will go. The shelter mom says she can't understand why I haven't been adopted yet because she thinks I'm great. In fact I make her laugh a lot; it seems I'm kinda funny! Who knew I could be so amusing; it just comes naturally I guess. I would dearly love to make you laugh too. Please bring me home with you to Canada so we can have fun, active times together and quiet, peaceful times as well. I can be such an adaptable little dog, as well as an entertaining one. Please say there's room for this little Ballerina in your life. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $500CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Greetings kind people. Weighing in a bit under 18 lbs and almost 16 inches tall, I am a Lhasa Apso and West Highland Terrier mix named Barkley. At the age of 7 months old, makes me just a little guy. I am quite affectionate. My story begins in the Middle East, where my rescuer watched and watched, waiting for the moment to free me from the clutches of an abusive owner. That awful person had me chained up and caged all the time. I was fed garbage and leftovers. Most of the time my water bowl was empty. Thankfully, the moment came and I am now away from that horrible life. My rescuer gave me good food and love. Despite my past mistreatment, I am a playful tyke. I enjoy playing with the other dogs and I am even good with the 7 year old child of my rescuer. I have not been around cats. I tend to be the friendly type and a kind soul. I know, I could really use a bit of a grooming, my fur is flying all over. I am sure that is an easy fix. Then you would really see how handsome I am. I think a home that is somewhat active and has fun things to occupy me would be a place I would like to be. If there is another dog to play with or some kids to love on me, I would be content. I just want a home that will care for me as a dog should be. To be loved and cared for is my deepest desire. I hear that can happen once a dog gets away from here over to these far away places of Canada or Washington of which I have heard. Will it be your home and that makes me part of your family? I hope so. I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $600.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.

Hello people, my name is Bella and I am a young female mix of shepherd and labrador with the sweetest brown eyes you ever saw. When I was just under a year old, I gave 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 again, when, thanks to LALDR, my puppies and I all found homes in Canada. Though my Canadian family loves me greatly, they think (and I agree) that I will be happier in a home without feline or human babies. I love running on trails and beaches, and dance with excitement when I know a walk is imminent. My favourite foods are chicken and steak. I have excellent manners and love to sit, shake paw, lay down and roll over. I love playing with other dogs, especially the high energy kind! My squishy soccer ball is my favourite toy and I love it when my family fills my kong with treats. My mom feels I am starting to gain my confidence in my new Canadian life. However, 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. Older children who understand my nervousness and the need to be gentle with me would be great roommates too! Although I do love the resident cats, I haven’t quite been able to settle in with them fully. Also, the quick and unpredictable movements of toddlers is a little bit scary for me, but I will let them pet me if they are gentle. 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.

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.

Hi, my name is Blink. As a 12 year old husky, I am a senior gentleman, but I still have a lot of life and love in me yet. I am a little underweight for my breed as I currently weigh just 35lb and measure 27 inches to my shoulders. You have probably taken note of my weepy eyes in my photo's. These old eyes of mine are completely blind as a result of tick fever. Four years ago I was unceremoniously dumped at the doors of this shelter, probably because I had lost my vision and my owners decided I was worthless to them. Sometimes humans can be so callous! But, I am a dog, and forgiveness just seems to be part of the canine make-up, so I feel nothing but love toward all people. (Dogs are O.K. too, but peole are my main interest.) If you were to meet me tomorrow you would probably be amazed at my friendly and curious nature and my enthusiasm for walks. I hear my walk is quite enchanting in fact, because I prance like a pony, bringing my front legs up high as I feel my way around. Around the shelter I navigate very well because I am quite familiar with everything, but at your house I would need some guidance at first, just until I know where your bed is anyway! That's kind of a fantasy of mine you know - curling up on a bed beside my human. After 4 long years in a shelter, you learn to take pleasure in fantasies like that. I do take pleasure in a few other things too; one of them being chicken. Boy, do I love that stuff! Hmmm, maybe I will add that to the fantasty - I am lying next to my human in bed while they hand feed me morsels of chicken. What a dream! O.K Blink, time to come back to reality. What I need you to know is that I will be an undemanding, loving companion and I will be forever grateful if you give me the chance to have a home for my twilight years. By the way, I was recently tested around cats and I did just fine; ignored them for the most part. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $300 CAD included my airfare to Canada.

Bonzaaaaaai, here I come. A little boy of 5 months old, I was dropped at the shelter with my mama, Monique (also listed on here.) I be a wee Scottish Terrier and Spaniel mix of some sort, all of 6-1/2 lbs and 9 inches in height. A quiet and composed youngster you will see. Our owner could no longer care for us anymore. You see, I was very ill. The doctor treated me for distemper. I pulled through with flying colors. Now I am quite healthy and have full strength back. I am rather subdued though, I was separated from my mommy when I got sick and I was very attached to her. So, I tend to be quiet and do not really play with the other dogs. I think it is because I have not learned. I am only recently feeling well enough to start really living. I would love to find a family that could help me learn to actually be a puppy. I want to learn how to play and cuddle. These dog parks sound fun too. I think I will need quiet activity until I get confident, then watch out, we can get rolling on some fun. Please choose me, the adorable little black fuzzball. I would love it if my mama could be together with me, I am very attached to her. UPDATE: I have had a set back on my health. I had been stable from my bout with distemper, but I just began to have seizures. The doctors are working to help me, giving me medicine. They are sending me to the big city for better treatment at a clinic there. I may end up w/ some nerve damage. Time will tell how if I make it throughnthis okay. So, stand by. I have not been spayed/neutered, as I am too young yet. I am vaccinated & micro-chipped though. My adoption fee is $600.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada. Sterilization is required. My spay/neuter is mandatory for my adoption to be finalized. Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca.

Greetings world. I am a playful, female, 2 year old Shar Pei mix. With my weight at 55 lbs and a height of 24" I likely have finished most of my growing, so should remain a medium sized dog. My real name, that I know is Pochik, pronounced Pocheek, but BoPeep is a name I hope you will remember. I was dumped on the streets of Turkey when I was a puppy of 2 months old by some heartless, irresponsible people. Thankfully, I was found by my rescuer when I was 6 months old. Good thing, as I was weak and near the brink of death. I was taken to a private shelter, where I was nursed back to perfect health. I have been living here with my friend, Minnie (also listed here). We are like sisters and we helped support each other through our recovery time. Unfortunately for Minnie and I there are new regulations being imposed on Turkish shelters and now we must find homes or be released back to the streets. How awful that would be, as a dogs of our size are easy targets for those who have no regard for animals. Being somewhat large for apartment living our chances of finding adopters here are limited. I would cross all my paws if I could just to be sure that someone in Canada will read this and want to give me a home there. I am an energetic girl, who loves to play. I am leash trained already and like walking with my sister. I am a very fast learner. I do bark the first time I meet a stranger, but I do not have any aggressiveness and I have no biting habits. I am also good other dogs, children and cats. I love running around playing with the kids in fact. It would be great if I went to a family that had a good sized yard and some children to play with. If my sister Minnie could come with me, that would be icing on the cake. I understand if that is not possible though. Maybe whoever adopts her, we could make playdates to see each other? I definitely need an active family; one who likes to get out and do things, go to dog parks, hiking and such. I also require some sort of a good sized yard to burn off my energy running around and playing with my kids. Please give me a chance to live out the rest of my life in a safe and loving home. If I stay here there is no such future for me and in fact there may be no future at all. I have been spayed vaccinated & micro-chipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

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. 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 rescue of the dogs' ability to live with children, we will not approve a family for adoption.

This Bud is for you... Wanna grab a Budwowser and sit on the couch? Then pick me. I am a 1-1/2 year old Maltese and Scottish Highland Terrier. At 26 lbs and 15-1/2 inches tall, I am just the right size to be right there in your lap while we watch TV and sip refreshments. If you entertain, I am a friendly boy, who will say hello to everyone. It wasn't always so. I was rescued from a puppy mill in pretty bad shape. I was infested with fleas and had skin problems from my fur being matted up. Also, I was weak and underweight. Now I am healthy with no medical issues, thanks to my rescuers and the help of the shelter staff. I am friendly, but not overly so. I actually tend to be fairly quiet. I am not much for getting out and playing with other dogs. They are okay, but I would rather focus on you. Do not let my somber face fool you into thinking I am a gloomy gus. It is just that I wish I could get out of having to be in a shelter. I want to know the freedom of a land like Canada. Where dogs can be walked outside without fear and go play in a dog park with you. I do not know much about cats or children. My ideal home would be one where we could take regular walks and drive around seeing the sights. As a puppy still, I do have some energy, so we should find some fun ways to burn off energy, maybe a hike in the quiet forest. For the most part though, I would prefer to cuddle up and enjoy your company. I want to know what it is like to have a family. I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada. Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca.

Well hello there all you wonderful people. My name is Bumpy and I am so very grateful that you are reading about me. I am a male Indie dog around one year old. Indie dogs are a breed unique to India but we look similar to a large Saluki or a small Retriever. I weigh 44lb and measure 20 inches to my shoulders. You will understand how I came by my name when you take a look at the pictures of my face when I was first rescued. I was suffering from a severe case of mange that covered my face with nasty-looking bumps and scabs. Life is very hard for a stray dog in India and in my malnourised and weakened state I was a prime target for the mites that cause mange. When my rescuer saw me she knew she had to do something to help relieve me of my misery so she tried to catch me. Even though I was skinny and weak I manage to out-run her for about 3 kilometers before she finally cornered me. She threw her jacket over me, scooped me up and took me straight to a shelter. Over the next three months I was given medicated baths and treatment for my skin until it healed. And look at me now! I still have a little scarring on my face, but hey, nobody's perfect and I think it give me a little character, don't you? So now I am living in a foster home with 2 other big dogs and we all get along just fine. (I'm not crazy about little dogs though and I can be dominant toward them.) But I can not stay here for much longer so I am really hoping my rugged good looks and sense of humour will win you over. Just check out Goofy Bumpy in my photo's below and you will know instantly that I am the kind of dog that will make you laugh every day. In case you still need a little persuasion that I'm your guy, let me tell you that I am excellent on leash, crate-trained and house-trained. Impressive huh? My perfect home would be with someone active, who wants a friendly canine sidekick to share their life. How about it folks - are you ready for me? I am certainly ready for you, so just say the word.

Hello everyone far and wide! My name is Bunny Wabbit. As you can guess I get my name from my big, adorable ears. I am a gentle and lovely 3 year old, female, German Shepherd mixed with a Corgi. My weight is 55 lbs with a height of 23-1/2 in. My ears are not the only thing that makes me special, I am blind in one of my eyes, but do not fear, it does not affect me getting around. When they found me wandering the streets, I was really sad and depressed and my eye was injured. They do not know what happened to my eye, but the streets are not kind to dogs like me. I use to be a proud mom, but one day someone killed all my puppies in front of me. It makes me sad that I could not stop them. Even after I was rescued by some amazing people, I refused to eat as the whole ordeal left me heartbroken. Things changed when a few orphaned puppies needed a new mum. I accepted them and after some time, I remembered again what happiness felt like. Though my heart healed, my eye never did and it left me blind in the one eye. Now I am living in a shelter in the Middle East. In spite of my tragic past, I look to the future and hope one day I can come to Canada and find a family to love me. Enough of the sad stories though, let us talk fun! I love to have a good play, especially with some other dog friends. My caretaker describes me as being very kind to my fellow canines. When it comes to people, I am a bit shy. With some TLC and scratches you will see me come out my shell. I respond well to affection, so you bet I would love to cuddle up with my person and enjoy a nice day in. Oh, did I mention I am also great around kids! My gentle soul knows only how to love. Though I have a big heart, I have never been around cats, so do not know how I would be in a home with them. My ideal home would be one with another dog companion. Having company is always nice, but it is not necessary. A visit to a dog park will work great too. If you have a back yard I would love to play around or just relax in the grass. All that stuff is great, but all I really want is a second chance and a family I can share my love with. I hope one day I get to come to Canada and finally find out the true meaning of family and maybe even discover what toys are all about. I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped.
