About A PATIENTLY WAITING PUP (FOSTER)

*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".

Bonjour. Little old me they call Acorn. I could presumably be a Golden Doodle or Labradoodle, but they are just calling me a mix of Poodle and Terrier. No matter which way you call it, I am the gentlest little boy, who is calm too. I am 2-1/2 years old, weigh 22 lbs at a little under 16 inches tall. My story goes like this... my owner did not want me anymore, so gave me to a puppy mill. Sadly, my front legs ended up broken. That is when a wonderful rescuer saw me and got me out of there. My rear legs showed signs of injury too, but the doctor said they are fine. Well, now I am away from that awful place and doing well. I can walk and run with no problems. I actually am not terribly playful to go running around though, I would rather cuddle and follow you around for more snuggles. I would say my energy level is medium. I like other dogs and kids too. The best place for me would be a low to moderate activity home. One where we can take leisurely walks and go to the dog park. Visiting with other dogs at the park would be fun. I am uncertain how I would be with cats. People are special to me, despite my past. They are such neat creatures, as they give snuggles and treats and happy sounds when they see me. I hope I can get into a home that has lots of sweet, cuddly humans... that carry lots of yummies for me. 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. 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 an adoption to a family with children age 8 or younger.

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 don't wear diapers, but my human helps me have my bowel movements so I don't go in the house. 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, acupuncture and stay on all my medications / herbs. I live with two cats, sometimes I'm not bothered by them, but sometimes I growl and bark. I've met some children, and do great sometimes, other times I see them and I bark and growl. I often bark when I want attention, or to be held. I "fly bite" and I'm on some herbs for that, as they're possibly focal seizures. 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 everyone, my name is Anne Murray! I am small dog with a big name, but also a big heart. I am a 3 year old, female, Terrier mix. As mentioned, I am not very big at 26 lbs and almost 20 inches tall, but that just makes me easier to cuddle with. If you are looking for a pup that is as loveable as they are sweet, then you have come to the right place. I am the blonde you have been looking for. Unlike my fellow dogs from the Middle East, I did not have to fend for my life. I was one of the lucky ones who was given a good home with a loving family. They took very good care of me and I could not ask for a better life. Things changed when our neighbours complained about me to the city. They warned my family that if they did not get rid of me, they would take and euthanize me. My family worried for my safety and hid me from everyone. After some time they decided it would be better to just rehome me. At the moment I am still looking for my forever home here in Canada with a family that will love me as much as my other one. Now that we got through that, lets talk about fun stuff! Are you the kind of person that loves to give showers of love and affection? Because I am the dog that loves receiving them and I require three hugs a day minimum or scratches to meet the cuddle quota. But do not let that fool you, I am only three and I have energy to run and play. If you can think of some tricks to teach me, I will try my best to impress you and we can learn together. Around my old home and foster I was known as a love bug, because whether it be cats or dogs I would always love to play with them. If we can all get along then why not spread the fun! My ideal home would be with people who can love me and give me lots of attention. I am no diva, I just love to know you care. A back yard to run around in would be really great, but I think a dog park or a nice trail can suite me just fine as well. Because I get along with everyone I can live in a home with both cats and dogs. You know what they say the more the merrier. Although I am very good with animals and people, I have never been tested with kids and for that reason it would be best to have a home without them. I know what it was like to have a family and I can not wait to have one again. If you can look past my gorgeous locks and see in to my glittery eyes I think you will find a good match in me! I am spayed/neutered (unless a young puppy not yet fixed), vaccinated and micro-chipped. My adoption fee of $500 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 and that may be the most touching I will ever tolerate. 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 and I may always need to stay on anti-anxiety medication. 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 too scary for me. My adoption fee of only $200 CAD is low because I am unneutered.

A male of just over 1 year of 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 $500.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.

Hi, my name is August and I am a friendly 6 month-old female Indie dog. (I look similar to a Saluki/Retriever mix.) My weight is 28lb and I am 19” tall. When I was 7 weeks old I was found wandering alone on the streets of New Delhi, skinny, afraid and with multiple wounds on my legs. If I hadn’t been picked up by my rescuers I would surely have been run over on the busy roads. Since then I have been living in a foster home while I wait for you to find me. I can’t stay here much longer, so please send for me soon. I am an outgoing, friendly girl and I enjoy playtime with the other dogs. But I do like to balance that with a good long nap periodically, so if you were to bring me home you would have the best of both worlds; a playful, active pup who can easily settle down when playtime is over. In my foster home there is a 5 year old human and the two of us just love our cuddle time together. I think cuddling with people is one of my greatest pleasures, in fact. I would be so happy if I could find a home with someone who enjoys going for walks or visits to the dog park. I would be just fine sharing you with dogs or kids (I have no idea about cats, never having met them) as long as you and I can have our special cuddle time together too. I am vaccinated, microchipped and will be spayed by the time of my adoption. My adoption fee of $600 CAD 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 perhaps Austrian Pointer & Shepard. 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. Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca.

Woowooof. My name is Axl and I am a 10 month old Husky and Shepard cross. A Male pup of currently 44 lbs and 23-1/2 inches tall, I am both gentle and calm, though still a playful puppy. My rescuers in Lebanon were helping a puppy who had been shot. They were throwing food to him food from afar trying to lure him in, when suddenly they saw me approaching and eating the food! Well, they couldn’t rescue one of us and leave the other, so they ended up rescuing us both. I am very healthy and have one blue eye and one brown eye, as is the case with some husky dogs. I am quite playful and love making new friends. Always befriending the newcomers at the shelter, I guess you could say I am something of an ambassador. I enjoy playing with the other dogs and sometimes I like playing with my toys, as well. Something I really love is cuddling and being petted. Being the sweet pup that I am, I just want to be loved. I am obviously good with other dogs, but also with kids, as you can see in my video. I have never been around a cat though. Could go either way with a husky type, could love and play with them or see them as prey, so best not to chance it, even though I display a very loving nature. 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. I need your help. You see I am making my people sad and I hate to do that. My humans are my world, but because I just can't seem to stop myself from chasing the resident cats I am stressing out the entire family. I try to be a good girl but I must be hard-wired to go after the cats. My poor mom is about to have another baby and she is at her wits end. I desperately need to find a new home where I can be me and where I make my people happy. I was found with my litter of puppies in a Middle Eastern city when I was a year old and taken to a shelter. Soon afterwards I was lucky enough to come to Canada to be adopted by my current family. They love me and really want to find a good home for me, but none of us can understand why I keep getting overlooked. There are so many positive things about me. 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. I confess that I can still 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 energetic dog. Older children who understand that I can be nervous and that they need to be gentle with me would be great roommates too! I would love to be with people who will take me for hikes or walks on the beach. 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.

Hi there people, I am a newly arrived baby girl named Billie. I am a mix of Pit Bull and Labrador, born here in Mexico on December 13th, 2018. My mom is the lovely and beautiful Paloma who you will see in the photo's. She gave birth to 9 of us on a construction site in Ajijic and she is taking very good care of us all. Fortunately, we also have some very kind humans looking out for us and making sure we are safe and healthy. They have determined that our best hope for a good life is for us to find homes in Canada and they are hoping to send us there when we are 10 weeks old. If I come to live with you in Canada I hope you will be fun. I think I'm going to enjoy playing and running around and sniffing things. Maybe I will be lucky enough to have a brother or sister dog too. Right now I kind of like having all these other squirming, warm little bodies around me, though sometimes it makes it hard to find momma's teat. Speaking of that, it's time for me to say goodbye and push my way back in there for my next meal. I look forward to meeting you when I am bigger. I am too young to be spayed*, but I will be vaccinated and microchipped by the time of my adoption. My adoption fee of $600 CAD includes my airfare to Canada. *Sterilization is mandatory in order for my adoption to be finalized.

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, Maisie (also listed here). We are like sisters and we helped support each other through our recovery time. Unfortunately for Maisie 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 Maisie 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, my name is Bowser, and am I glad to be talking to you. I nearly didn't make it, you know; I was on "The List" at the Shanghai city pound. I am a 3 year old male Beagle/Heeler mix of 33lb and 20'" at the shoulders. Things have not been so good for me lately. I was abandoned by my owners and left to wander the streets and try to survive on scraps of food while avoiding the crazy traffic and hostile people. When they loaded me into a van I hoped I might be going somewhere safe. Not so. It was a high-kill pound. But I'll spare you the details. All you need to know is that now I am safe and staying in a large shelter in Shanghai while I pray that someone will adopt me. I must admit that I am still adjusting to this overwhelming environment and you can probably tell by my sad expression that it is all a bit daunting. There are dogs galore, and while I get along with other dogs just fine, it would be so much better if there were just one or two of us in a home. I am the kind of dog that would probably enjoy a couple of half hour walks a day, along with some sniffing around the yard perhaps. But more important to me would be to have a home where I belong and people I could love. Please can you get me out of this place soon? I have been through so much already and I am hoping I haven't used up all my luck. Could you give me my biggest ever lucky break and say you will adopt me? I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $500 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Hola! I am Brigitte, a female Lab mix with beautiful brindle markings - check out my paws! Speaking of that, my paws are pretty big so my rescuers are guessing I'll be a medium to large dog. I am about three months old and I currently weigh 11lb. My sister Bardot and I were found running on a busy road in Mexico, so nobody knows what happened to our mom or dad. Someone called a local rescue a few days later because many puppies get hit on that road and they were concerned for our safety. As soon as the rescuers pulled over we came running over with our tails wagging because we are friendly puppies and we love people. Right now we are staying in a shelter, but I am very excited to learn that we will be coming to Canada very soon. I like to watch out for my little sister so when people pick her up at the shelter I will run over and lick her head to make sure she is okay. I'm the more outgoing of the two, and am curious about everything people are doing around me. I love to bounce around and chase a ball that you throw or chew on a stuffie. I also love to be in your lap; but warning - I will give you TONS of kisses if you let me. Since we have been here I have met cats and I think they are cool so I could easily see myself sharing a home with one. And then there's kids - wow, are they ever fun - they seem to enjoy playing with me as much as I like playing with them. I would also be happy sharing your home with another doggy playmate, or I would be fine being your one and only, just so long as you can play with me and we can do fun things together. I'm really the perfect mix: I like to just sit and let you cuddle me, but I also love to play and I get along with everyone. Since I will soon be arriving in Vancouver you won't even have to wait very long to bring me home with you so best get that application filled out right away. I can't wait to meet you! I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $600 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

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. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

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 used 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.

Hello everyone! My name is Buster. I picked the name myself. My foster mom kept trying different names out on me but it wasn't until she got to Buster that I looked up at her as if to say, "well you finally figured out my name!" I am a very sweet one year old male 40 lb Bull Terrier from China. I may be smaller than the average bull terrier but when it comes to my personality I am every bit as big. I recently arrived in Vancouver from Shanghai where I had been brought to a shelter. My life before the shelter isn't know but it is thought I started life in a puppy mill. When I arrived at the shelter I was so happy to be there. An animal shelter in Shanghai is not a great place for a dog to live but it was clearly far better than where I came from. What excited me the most was being around people. I just adore them, especially kids. Perhaps because I wasn't able to enjoy my puppyhood, I behave very much like a puppy now. I love playing and romping and racing around. My favourite things are chasing a ball (which I will bring right back and swap you for another one - I am not quite yet willing to give the ball up unless I am assured there is another one to chase), tug of war and squeaky balls. I am a superb play partner. I am house trained with a dog door, sleep quietly through the night in my crate (with the door open please) and rarely bark. I am a very friendly, outgoing and lovable little guy. There isn't a person I have met that I haven't liked. Dogs and cats get me very excited and I react inappropriately as a result. I chase cats so can't live with them and try so hard to get other dogs to play with me that I jump all over them. This can lead to fights so until I learn my manners about how to behave with other dogs I can't live with one. On walks I will pull and jump up to get to dogs I see so would do best with someone dog-experienced. Despite never having been walked on a leash I am surprisingly well behaved on one. I may pull at bit when we first start out but after a few times of you not allowing us to move forward as long as I am pulling, I get it and begin to walk politely. It is just that my excitement about going for a walk makes me forget my manners. A fenced yard would be great for throwing the ball around which I love but it isn't essential as I just want to be where you are. One thing that is essential to my happiness is a home with peanut butter. I just can’t get enough of it. I will need a couple of good walks a day so an active home would suit me best. But when I am home with you I am relaxed and happy to lie beside you on my bed and chew on a bone or a rubber toy. If you want a dog who will fill your home with joy then you need look no further. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee is $550 CAD.

My name is Butterbean and I adore you all. That is just the kind of girl I am, a total love-bug. It is thought that I am a 2 to 3 year old lab mix. At 50 lbs and 25 “ at the shoulder I am an ideal medium size girl. I spent my days wandering around the streets of Lake Chapala, Mexico, searching for food and human companionship. There was one particular restaurant that became my favourite place to hang. The owners were kind to me and I enjoyed being around all the people. Over time I gained a reputation as being the 'Ambassador of Hugs and Kisses' because of my affectionate ways. Unfortunately the Health & Safety officials said it was unsanitory to have a dog in the restaurant so I had to leave. Can you believe that? Clearly they had no idea that I was actually improving the health of all that visited by lifting their spirits and gifting them my love. Anyway, it seems that some of my regulars customers knew that I was special and they grouped together to raise enough money to have me spayed, vaccinated and sent for boarding at Ajiiic Dog School. While I have been staying here I have also received basic training so I can now proudly say that I know several obedience commands and I am very good at walking politely on leash. As you can see in the video I also get along fine with big dogs, both male and female, though I admit I am not so good with little dogs and likely would not be good with cats either. So here's the sad fact of my life; the donated funds have just about run out now and my time at this boarding facility is coming to an end. There is nobody here who is able to offer me a home and the only remaing option will be to send me back out onto the streets again. After all that has been done for me, that would be such a terrible shame. I know I will find it so hard to leave here and go back to such a lonely, difficult existence. What I fervently hope for, is that someone out there will read about me here and decide that they want to bring me home. Could that person be you? If you decide to adopt me there's one thing I can guarantee: I will spend the rest of my days loving you. And that is something I do very, very well. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $500 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Caramel is a favorite for many people, so come and get me. I am a very smart and gentle girl of about 2 years old. Weighing in at 55 and 27-1/2 inches tall, I am a German Shepard mix who will softly come up for attention. I am a survivor of a dog culling by the government here. I had been shot in the leg. My rescuer got me medical help and my leg is fully healed. Our rescuer loves dogs, so had taken in a number of us. Well, a few of my fellow siblings have been adopted out to good families here in the Middle East. There are a few more of us yet that need to find homes. You see, sadly, my human Mama has been informed that she has a terminal cancer and will not be alive too much longer. I am heartbroken of the thought of losing her and of what will become of all of us. It can be scary here for dogs. She asked some other dog loving people to help her find good homes for us. A couple of my friends have been approved for a home in Canada. We are hoping that can happen for the rest of us too. I am a fairly timid and submissive dog, also quite kind and gentle. I am good with children, but is better to be in a house with older children, since I have only been with a few of them. I love attention, but can be a little skittish with big dogs, as they have bullied me for being so gentle. I like little dogs though. Not sure about those things called cats, never seen one. It would be nice to have a place with a yard, as I enjoy being outside. Probably a calm to semi active home would be about right for me. It may take me a little while to settle in before taking walks around the neighborhood. If you had a small dog who could help me with confidence, that would be great. Probably playing games in the yard would be fun or just hanging around while you plant flowers or something. Please ease the mind of this wonderful person who saved us and bring me into your home. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.

Are you looking for a calm, happy but active companion? Well, you just found one! My name is Casper because I am as white as a ghost and full of spirit. I am a handsome young Lab/Pit Bull mix from Bahrain. My weight is 59lb, I measure 24 inches tall and am about a year and a half old. When the people here came to rescue me I was being kept on a rooftop and used as a bait dog by dog-fighting gangs. I guess these cruel men figured I was an easy target for the other dogs because of my albino colouring and lack of eyesight. It is believed I lost my vision because of tick fever. Amazingly, I am a very happy and friendly dog and I have adapted brilliantly to my blindness. I am full of energy and affection and I have a way of bringing a smile to the faces of those around me. Despite my past I get along just fine with other dogs, large and small and tend to be submissive around them. Since coming to live at the Bahrain rescue center I have learned to walk beautifully on the leash; in fact to watch my confident walk you would never know there is anything unusual about me. Nearly every morning I go for a run with one of the care-givers here and now I know the route so well I even lead the way. Even a dog with 100% vision might not be as fearless as I am in the great outdoors. Lucky me - I have now come to Canada and I am being fostered near Vancouver. It is really cool here; there are dogs and cats and horses and I have enjoyed meeting all of them. My foster mom is really pleased with me and seems to enjoy having me hang out with her around the place. She says I have the most wonderful temperament and I am quiet, calm and happy. She is amazed at my leash walking manners: "you could use a piece of ribbon and your pinky finger to walk Casper" is what she actually said! And she also mentioned that I am naturally submissive and just great with other dogs. She will be able to tell you all about me if you are interested in learning more. By the way, you will notice that I had to have one eye removed because it was causing me discomfort. I feel much better now. I would love to live with an active family who enjoy going for long walks and would invest lots of time playing and cuddling with me. If you have another dog in the home, that would be cool with me - they could probably help show me around and introduce me to the new routines of my life. And because I love everybody I meet I would be a fun companion for older kids too! My quiet, gentle demeanor means I would also be a good fit if you want to take me to work with you. Please apply to adopt me so we can start sharing a wonderful, happy lifetime together. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $350 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Hi - my name is Cedar and I am a handsome male German Shepherd. The people who rescued me here in Mexico say that I am the strong but silent type. I am around 1 and a half years old. I weigh about 49lbs and am 24” high. My rescuers believe that I was dumped by someone who used to care for me. Now, I am thinner than I should be, but since I was rescued and come to live in a foster home, I’ve been gaining some weight. When I was on the street I didn’t really know how to find food, so I got pretty skinny. I have some great qualities that might entice you to adopt me. I very rarely bark; that’s a pretty good thing in a dog, I do believe. And I just love to be close to you and sit on your feet. It gives me comfort to know that you are right there and not leaving me. Another great thing is that I get along really well with other dogs! My perfect home would be with a family who has lots of time to play with me, to take me for drives and to give me lots of fun exercise. I’m not picky, though - you don’t have to be a family - a single person would be wonderful too. It would be great to have a fenced yard so that I can roam and play with my people, but as long as you take me out for regular exercise I will be happy. I would enjoy going for long walks, playing in the park, pretty much everything we rescue dogs dream of. If you have another dog that would be great, but I’m also happy to be your one and only. I dream of one day having a life like my good friend who went to live in a place called Vancouver Island. He says one of his most favourite things to do is bite the sea foam on the beach. It would be awesome if I got to try that too! The most important thing in my life though, even more than a chance to bite sea foam, is to find someone to love me. Are you out there? Could it be you? I am neutered, vaccinated* and microchipped and my adoption fee is $550.00 which includes my airfare to Canada. Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca.

Bubbly like my name, Champagne, I will tickle your nose. I am a little over 1 year old, female, Saluki and Lab mix. My weight is about 55 lbs and I am 28" tall. Turmoil in my short life means I need a permanent home of my own. I am playful with lots of energy, just as most puppies. When I was a wee puppy, I was found in the snow in a big city in the Middle East. The compassionate person who discovered me took me to her apartment and cared for me for the next 6 months until the building manager told her she could not keep me there. So then I was taken to an animal shelter. Because I had lived in a home, I was particularly unhappy at the shelter. This drew the attention of a rescue organization from Toronto. I was put on a plane and spent many hours traveling to get there. The person adopting me must have expected something other than a bewildered puppy (they thought I would be house trained and know how to sit and stay the minute I stepped out of my travel-crate.) So, within two hours, I was returned to the rescue organization. My streak of bad luck continued when they adopted me out to someone who beat me. Thankfully, that string of hardship ended when I was removed from that home and brought to Vancouver. I have been placed in a loving foster home arranged by Loved At Last Dog Rescue. Moving all over the place caused confusion and uncertainty. Now that I have stability and routine in my foster home, I am not so nervous, my reactivity has diminished to rarely now. I am also great with other dogs too, love them even, if given proper introduction. My foster mama says I am cute and sweet. Also, that I am a good alert dog, as I will bark at some noises and if someone passes by her apartment, but I respond quite well to No and Good Girl. My foster states I am very obedient, though I am still scared of most everything. I just need more training, patience and lots of love. My biggest fear is men outside of home. I will growl, bark or even jump on them, often I just back away. I just need more introductory socialization with them. But women and kids, I do very well. Playing with a ball is the ultimate fun. I do need to be taken out multiple times for potty yet. I think it is still because I am nervous. Once I adjust to a routine, calm home, I think I will gain confidence and this will more under control. I don't really eat a lot, so my foster has been making most of my food, along with treats. Maybe I just haven't found the kibble I like yet. Ideally, a low to moderately active, but mellower home without a lot of intensity would be best, but I am learning to adapt better to more environments. I walk good on leash, no pulling and do some off leash too. I am not aggressive with strangers on the trail (though my nervous growl can scare people into thinking so.) Other things to know about me... I am quite comfortable in my crate and am indifferent to cats, so I can easily live with them. I was a bit stiff to rise some mornings, if I have had a big day, but my foster said I seem to be fine now. More than anything, I just want to find my family. Those who will love me and guide me to be the best dog I can be. Will you be the one making that champagne toast for bringing a new, adorable girl into your home? I am vaccinated*, microchipped and spayed and my adoption fee is $500 CAD.

Help. URGENT assistance needed. Charisma needs a foster or adoptive family ASAP. Hi there, my name is Charisma but you can call me, Chari if you like. (i am told that name suits me well) I am patiently awaiting being noticed. 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 do not sound so bad for me here, but the fact is that my life is at risk. I am a very affectionate girl. I 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. I want so much to be with people, that when left out in the garden, I escape to find people to be with. This is exceptionally dangerous. Thus far I have defied the odds of getting caught by the government, nasty people who would hurt or kill me or hit by a car. 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 tend not to do well with cats, as I chase them. I do get along with other dogs, and kids though, so you see, it would be pretty easy to add me to your life. Who doesn't want a charismatic girl around? 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.

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. I weigh 50lb and measure 23 inches to my shoulders. 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 hesitant when meeting dogs outside and I tend to like having solitary walks without any other dogs as I get excited easily. I have a tendency to become spooked by fast moving things and am hyper-alert. I need a confident dog owner who can understand my reactive, (not aggressive) behaviour. Because of my reactivity I am not the kind of dog you can take to off-leash dog parks or busy places and I therefore need to have a fenced yard to run freely. 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 am amazing inside the home. I tend to sleep for hours and love belly scratches. In fact, you can touch me anywhere, play with my ears, tail, whatever; I just adore it all. My people say I am the most affectionate dog they have ever known. I save all my energy for the outdoors and rarely even move when I’m on my favourite blanket. I also never beg for food at the table or the kitchen. 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.

Please adopt me. I don’t want to stay in this crowded Shanghai shelter anymore.….. My name is Chewy and I am just a youngster in need of a loving home. I am 10 months old, a charmingly scruffy terrier mix weighing 12lb and just 12” to my shoulders. I was one of many dogs rounded up from the city streets and held at the police station while they called the shelter staff to come and pick us up. This happens on a regular basis and it makes me tremble to think what happens to those poor dogs who aren’t collected by shelter workers. I was in a sorry state when I arrived here. You can see from the photo’s what a terrible case of mange I was suffering from. My fur had mostly disappeared, my skin was raw and itchy and my poor body was emaciated and weak. Thankfully I am feeling much better now. The mange has gone and my fur as well as my puppy spirit has returned. I am a friendly and playful dog who would really enjoy a family of my own. I get along great with other dogs and all people. I could happily live in an apartment or a house, just as long as I have an opportunity to play and run around a bit each day. I think I would enjoy going to the dog park to make some new friends and then coming home with you to have some snuggle time. Please don’t make me stay here much longer. I want to be with you. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $600 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

My name is Chiffon and I promise you that I'm as light and airy as my name sounds. The wonderful people who came to rescue me say that I'm sweet and kind. I'm only 1 year old, just out of puppyhood, with a weight of 22 lbs while standing 16 inches tall. They say that I'm a terrier mix and although I don't know what that means, I sure like the way it sounds! When you see my picture, you can see that I have a really great smile. And not to be too braggy, I also have beautiful, soft creamy coloured hair. And guess what? I am good with both dogs and cats. I don't talk about this much, but I didn't have the best of beginnings in life here in the Middle East. The people who lived at my home kept me chained outside the house and unfortunately, I was given no love or care. It made me very sad and my time was spent all alone until a wonderful person came to rescue me and bring me to a safe place. Due to my rough start in life, I am afraid of bigger dogs when I first meet with them. But if they are kind dogs, like me, then I know we will good friends once we get to know each other. I just love kissing - human, dog, cat, doesn't matter to me. If you don't let me give all my love to you in kisses, I get sad and go to a corner and will not eat. My way of pouting about it. I do like sleeping in your bed with you. I am also good about sharing my toys and playing with other dogs. One game I enjoy is fetch the ball or other toys for you. A fairly active home would be good, since I am young with puppy energy. I'm just so excited to meet the forever people who will take me home with them. I’ve never known a real home or had someone to love me. Because both dogs and cats are fine with me, I hope that helps me find my forever home faster. I have been spayed, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada. Sterilization is required. My spay/neuter is mandatory for my adoption to be finalized.

Howdy, Chip here, and I am really looking forward to meeting you. I am a 2 year old male Lab/Saluki mix from Bahrain. My weight is approximately 45lb an I am 23 inches to my shoulders. When I was brought to this foster home 4 months ago I was a very nervous dog. I had lived on the streets for a while and was constantly in danger from traffic, people and other dogs. It took me some time to learn to feel safe and comfortable with my new life. Now that I have settled in I have become a very playful guy. I have lots of energy and can play all day long with the other dogs here, if they let me. I am also the kind of dog that gets very attached to particular people, so if you are looking for a buddy that will adore you and be very loyal, then I'm the one for you. You will need to be a little patient with me when I first come home with you though, because I still have a tendency to be nervous around new people, so I need an experienced, confident person to help me deal with this. If you have another playful dog in the home that would be very good for me, but I am not fond of cats and a little too anxious to live with kids. I am leash trained and I've just about got the house-training thing sorted out, but just as I'm starting to get the hang of all this, I have learned that I need to move on. My guardians here can not keep me much longer so I really hope I can find a forever home soon. Are you an energetic, dog savvy person looking for a canine buddy to hike with? Please pick me to be your best friend. I will be by your side wherever you go if you let me. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

The name is Chipmunk, ready to make your life lively. I am a happy and affectionate Golden Retriever mix. A 2+ year old little boy, am I. I am young yet, but shouldn't grow to much more. Though I will be a large dog, I will always act like a small one, trying to cuddle up in your lap, no doubt. Of course, at about 75 lbs and 23 1/2 inches tall, I may hang off. Both me and my sister, Lullaby Baby (also listed) are currently living in the Middle East, but we are very excited to one day come to Canada. Our story started 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. She loves the beautiful dogs we are growing up to be. Unfortunately, due to the economic situation here, they are having financial trouble caring for us. With their blessing and a bit of luck, we hope to find amazing homes with families that love us. I may seem shy at first and a perhaps even a bit timid, but once you start showering me with affection, I will become your best friend. Love magnet describes me well. I love playing with other dogs and people are pretty great too, especially when they give me those awesome 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 buddy in the home would be really nice. It would be even better if it was my sister Hunnybun, but we do not have to go to a home together. With youth on my side, I need a place where I can stretch my legs 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. Nor have I been around any kids for that matter, so it would be best if it was a doggie 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. My kindhearted nature makes me ache to belong to a loving home of my own. I have been waiting so long. I want more than anything to discover how wonderful the life for a dog can be alongside people I can call my family. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $550.00, this 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. In my previous home I was fine with the cats but have been chasing them when I go to other homes. It is thought this chasing behaviour is a frustated attempt at herding them. Clearly I never got the memo that herding cats is an impossibility. Because I am very smart and eager to please I can almost certainly be taught to leave the cats alone. 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.

Boy, oh boy, this is sooooo exciting. When I heard I was going to be featured on a website in Canada I just couldn't believe my luck. Well, here goes: Hello, my name is Diggidy and I am a dear little mixed breed dog from Shanghai. I look a bit like a miniature Beagle. I am around one year of age, I weigh 15lb and measure 14 inches to my shoulders. When I was found on the streets of Shanghai I was so emaciated I could barely stand. There's a photo of me taken back then and you can see every bone in my body. I was about 4 months old and just clinging to life. The vets took x-rays of my back legs because they could see that I didn't walk well. It was felt that I was young enough that I would heal so they decided against surgery. I don't remember what happened to bring me to such a sorry state, and I think that's a good thing. What I do know is that I am now a healthy and outgoing young pup who can walk and run as much as I want. Admittedly I do have an unusual gait, but that doesn't concern me at all. What matters to me is that you should know how much joy I can bring to your life. And you to mine! I get along great with all the other dogs here and all the staff think I am a sweeheart. They are all rooting for me to come to Canada and live in a real home because they have seen the transformation I have gone though and they admire my determination to live. Please adopt me and bring me to live with you. I can teach you how to live in the moment: it really is the best way to be. Please note: My posting name is Diggidy, but my rescuers named me Hope because that's what I am filled with. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

My name is Donya and I am a female Great Pyrenees. I weigh 28 lbs and stand almost 20 inches tall. I am only a baby of 4 months old right now, though I will grow to be a big girl. I am such a smart little girl. A rescue's mother here in the Middle East found me and my 3 sister's (Dorna is listed here, the others should be soon) when we were about 3 weeks old. Our mommy was nowhere to be found. She may have been killed so that we would die, as often happens here. We were very hungry and our little bodies were cold. This lovely person gave us some milk and put us in her car into a basket with a warm water bottle. My rescuer's Mother could no longer keep us in her small apartment, so about a month ago, we had to go to boarding. The rescuer's house has convalescing dogs, so we could not go there. I like people and am good with other dogs. Though I have never been around cats or children, I am just a puppy, so would probably learn fast how to behave with them. Being a smart pup, with proper training, I would probably be good at most anything you might want to do. I enjoy playing with my toys, especially the big stuffed ones. Since I am young, an active to semi active home would be most suitable. A yard would be really good, but as long as I get plenty of walks and play time out, it is not a requirement. Another dog in the home is fine too, as I get along fine with others. Let's get the show on the road and bring me to Canada, where I hear a dog can actually be a dog and out in public. That sounds so good. I need my own family to love too. I hope it is yours. 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.

Hi, my name is Dooby and I think you may be just the person I've been waiting for. I am a young male Puggle-type dog (that's a Pug crossed with a Beagle), about one year of age with a weight of 26lb and height to the shoulders of 16 ". If you have been searching this site for a friendly, outgoing and might I say, handsome, little dude from Shanghai, then you have just found him. Like many of the dogs at this shelter, I was part of the regular round up of dogs who had the misfortune of being abandoned on the streets. We are loaded up and taken first to the local police station. If, like me, you are one of the dogs deemed "cute" or "friendly" you will then be sent to Shanghai Animal Shelter in the hope that someone, somewhere will want to adopt you. So, that's how I ended up here. I guess I am like the popular boy at school - all the other dogs seem interested in being with me. It must be my magnetic personality that draws them to me I suppose. There was a time that I thought it was my masculine charm attracting the lady dogs, but now I've been neutered they all still like me, male and females alike. Hey, when you've got it , you've got it! People are also fans of 'the Doobster', as I like to call myself. Probably because I am a big fan of people. Even the cops at the police station described me as a friendly character. I could see us living the good life together, you and me; going for some great walks, hanging out at the park, visiting friends or just chilling on the couch. So now that we have found each other, how about we move things along real quick and you let the LALDR folks know that I am the one for you. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 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.

We are hesitant to approve an adoption to a family with children under the age of 12, but will consider each application individually.

My name is Dorna and I am a female Great Pyrenees. I weigh 27 lbs and stand almost 20 inches tall. Though I am only a baby of 4 months old right now, I will grow to be a big girl. I am quite the smart pup. A rescue's mother here in the Middle East found me and my 3 sister's (Donya is listed here, others should be soon) when we were about 3 weeks old. Our mommy was nowhere to be found. She may have been killed so that we would die, as often happens here. We were very hungry and our little bodies were cold. This lovely person gave us some milk and put us in her car into a basket with a warm water bottle. About a month ago, we had to go to boarding because the rescuer's Mom could no longer keep us in her small apartment. The rescuer's house has convalescing dogs, so we could not go there. I like people and am good with other dogs. Though I have never been around cats or children, I am just a puppy, so would probably learn fast how to behave with them. Did I mention I am smart. With proper training, I would probably be good at most anything you might want to do. I enjoy playing with my toys, especially the big stuffed ones. Since I am young, an active to semi active home would be most suitable. A yard would be really good, but as long as I get plenty of walks and play time out, it is not a requirement. Another dog in the home is fine too. Let's get the show on the road and bring me to Canada, where I hear a dog can actually take walks safely. That sounds so good. I need my own family to love too. I hope it is yours. 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.

My name is Elka and I am appealing to you to please take me away from this crowded, noisy shelter in Shanghai. I am a petite female Retriever/Spaniel mix of just 24lb and 16 inches to my shoulders. I'm around a year and a half. Look into my sweet brown eyes and I know you will see my sadness and confusion. I just don't understand why I was abandoned on the city streets by my people. It seemed that they had somewhere to go and they didn't give any thought to taking me with them or even making plans for my care. Instead they left me at the side of the road without a backward glance. The routine sweep of the city netted lots of us abandoned dogs and I suppose I was one of the lucky ones in that I was then sent to this shelter. (I don't like to think what happens to the dogs that don't end up here.) Since arriving here I have gone on a few short leash walks and had the opportunity to interact with lots of other dogs. I am described as friendly and playful, though I feel sure I would feel more like playing if I wasn't so intimidated by this place. It's all so overwhelming. I like to dream about one day living in a home of my own where the people will really love me. Maybe there is another dog for me to become friends with in that home, or in the neighbourhood; that would be fine. Or it could just be me and my little family of humans, spending our days together, going for walks, stopping to smell a few lamposts, rolling in the grass and then snuggling on the couch at the end of the day. Ahhhhh, what a wonderful life that would be. Do you know where I could find a life like that? I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Hello, my name is Elvis. I am a golden-coloured, 1-1/2 year old, male Anatolian and maybe Greyhound mix. Just like my namesake I am a handsome, well-built guy, weighing in at 75 lbs and 21 inches tall. Though my ears were cruelly cut off, I am hoping that you will instead focus on the great affection and love I offer. Are you lonesome tonight... cause I can't help, falling in love with you. I will love you tender and love you true. In my short life, I have already known more than my fair share of cruelty, hunger, fear and harsh conditions. Sadly, this is the life of a middle eastern stray dog and it's the life I was born into. I took comfort in the company of my mother, Patti, who taught me where to scavenge for food and which humans to avoid. Together we discovered that there can be kind humans in the world too. We were offered food in a neighbourhood that we had visited before. A wonderful lady befriended us and started feeding us regularly and showing affection towards us. I couldn't get enough of her company and would follow her wherever she went. I wanted to be with her all the time and I tried so hard to show her my love and loyalty. It broke my heart when she had to leave, but she promised me she would try to save me from this hard and lonely street life. She kept her promise and here I am. Now, I am hoping that someone will read about me and know in their heart that I am the dog for them. I absolutely love humans and am a super great cuddler and hugger. My ability to love deeply means I can be jealous of other dogs who want to share you so I would probably be best as an only dog or perhaps with a submissive female, as I do like to socialize with the ladies. (There's my Elvis coming out again!). Cats would not want me in their home, as I have been known to chase them. Right now I am being fostered at Northwest Kennels and while I'm here I have been getting an opportunity to work on my social skills around other dogs. I am coming along well and I am quite enjoying my training sessions. I would love to find a home with someone who was interested in continuing my training. Maybe you would find it as interesting as I do! I am really hoping you are the kind of person who loves to be active. We could keep each other company on long walks or I could even help you with those plans to take up jogging. What do you think - when you need someone to turn to, let me be the one. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $500.00 CAD. Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca.

Helllooo Canada. My name is Hanna. I am a beautiful black and tan Australian Shepherd cross female. I'm about 3.5 years old and weigh about 40kg/88lbs. You may wonder why I am wearing clothing (which I admit does seem a bit odd), but its because it is very cold where I am in the Middle East and my rescuers put these shirts on me to help keep me warm. The temperatures in the winter are down around freezing and unfortunately, I live in a cement box which is very cold. There are some volunteers who come each day and spend time with me but other than that, I'm living a pretty dismal life. As awful as it is, it is still a better alternative than living on the streets where I likely wouldn't survive at all. Still ... I am pinning my hopes on a wonderful person in Canada who falls in love with me and wants me to come live with them! (Is that person you???) Here are 3 great things about me: #1 - I love people! #2 - I love to play! #3 - I am good with other dogs! You may be curious to know a little about my past. Well, all I can tell you is that I was rescued off the streets when I was pregnant. I had 5 puppies, 4 of whom have since been adopted but my son, Rocky, is still with me here at the shelter. (Maybe you'd like to adopt him too!!!) I have lived here in this cement box for two years now :+) Please consider adding me to your family! I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $500.00 this includes my airfare to Canada. Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca.

Hello. Havarti here. My personality is as smooth as the cheese. My appearance looks to be a Labradoodle. I am 4 year old female who weighs 55 lbs and am about 25-1/2 inches tall. I am an extremely kind & beautiful dog. I was first rescued about 2 years ago. I was saved from an addict who left me alone in a dark and dirty place with no food and dirty water. I was seen by my current rescuer in the Middle East when she visited the shelter where I was. She just fell in love with me and so decided to find me a real home. I enjoy staying right with you. I love hugs and snuggles, well just being touched at all is great. I am just a big loverball of fluff. It is fun to take walks and play with you too though. I have not really been around children, so not sure of any reactions there. The best home for me would be a moderately active one that enjoys getting out for hikes and walks in the park. I think these dog parks I hear about would be a really enjoyable place to have fun too. I can live with other dogs too, but never have I seen a cat. If you want a smart girl who is loving too, then I am the one for you. I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $500.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.
