About A PATIENTLY WAITING PUP (FOSTER)

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".

ALEXI - Special Needs (Arrived)

I am ALEXI. Please can you help me? I'm the sweetest special needs dog! I am a cute west highland terrier mix (around 10kg and 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. Disclaimer: In order to keep both dogs and children safe, the Board of Directors has decided that unless a representative of LALDR has personally met the dog or has been satisfied by the international rescue about the dogs' ability to live with kids, we will not approve an adoption to a family with children age 8 or younger. We are hesitant to approve an adoption for families with children under the age of 12 years but will consider each application individually. VACCINATIONS - Dogs from the middle-east are vaccinated for rabies, parvo, distemper and leptospirosis. They are not given Bordetella as that hasn't been a problem in the Middle East. show less

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, but now I have come to live with a foster family in Canada they are helping me with this and I am learning fast. They are helping me walk calmly on a leash and understand how to feel comfortable when other dogs approach. I am beginning to understand this wonderful new life of being a pet. I even have my own Instagram Page now: angievancityrescue. My foster mom is amazed at how affectionate I am, given my cruel past. She and I spend lots of time cuddling on the couch. I think it may be my favourite part of the entire day whe we cozy up together like that. I also love playing fetch and I enjoy tossing around the toys she's given me. I gotta say this life is already turning out a lot better than I ever imagined. When my foster mom leaves me alone in the house, I just settle down and have a nice long snooze. And another point I'd like to make - I am perfectly house trained. Oh yeah, I don't bark much either. These are all things that I hope will make you like me. You do like me don't you? So do you think you could make room in your heart for me? I promise to love you will everything I have.

Well, hellooooo Canada!! I am pleased 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. I enjoy interacting with the dogs 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; 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 between 2 and 3 years old, but nobody knows for sure because I was a stray. I weigh around 30lb. 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 fond of 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.

Hello Cashew here. I am a pretty, 2 year old, female labrador retriever/Australian cattle dog mix (just a guess!), in need of a forever home. I was born on the streets of a big city in the Middle East and I was just a wee puppy when I was hit by a car. My back leg was run over and crushed so now I am a card carrying member of the tri-paw'd club. Even though I was in terrible pain when my rescuer found me, I couldn't stop kissing her when she lovingly scooped me off the ground. I was so happy to be rescued. After some time at a shelter I was fortunate to be brought to Canada and placed in an adoptive home where I soon bonded with my owner and one of the other two resident dogs. My owner worked with me for a while to help me become a good pet and I am proud to report that I am crate-trained, house-trained, leash-trained and know my basic commands. Impressive huh? Unfortunately I did not get along with one of the dogs there and I guess 3 dogs was just a little too much, so one of us had to go. Now that I am in the care of an experienced foster mom we are working on my, shall we say, 'personal growth'. Because I am a little fearful I tend to come on strong when I meet new dogs, so, with the advice of the talented dog trainer James (ArfArfBarkBark.com), she is teaching me how to say a more polite hello. After proper introductions I have become friends with some of her other dogs and I just love to run around and play with them. Mom also says that I have a high prey drive. I don't know; is that a good thing? I do know I find small creatures very exciting and I like to chase them, so for that reason, I should not live in a home with little dogs, cats or squirrels! My lovely foster mom has already taken a shine to me (I have that effect on people) and I enjoy entertaining her with my mischievous nature and energetic playfulness. Sadly she will be moving to a smaller place in November so, once again, I will have to find a new place to live. Now I am in a temporary foster home once more. I long for a quiet, calm home, perhaps with another doggy-friend, but most importantly with someone patient, but firm, who will take me for long walks or play with me in the yard to burn off my energy. In an ideal world I would live in a rural area or on a large property so I could avoid the crowds and noise that come with an urban life I am so sweet and loving when we settle down together in the evening that you would be sure to enjoy my company. Please help me find my forever home. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Are you out there somewhere, looking for me? I am Casper and I am waiting for you here in Bahrain. They named me Casper because I am as white as a ghost. But they also tell me I am a well-built and handsome young boy of 59lb and 24 inches tall. I 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. When you and I finally meet you should be prepared for my larger than life personality and my sloppy kisses. I will probably surprise you with my good leash-walking manners and my ability to forget and forgive everything in my past in order to live totally in the moment with you. I can't wait; can you. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $350 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Howdeeeee. They call me Cezar. I am an absolutely stunning Anatolian Shepherd mix. Still quite a young boy at 2 - 1/2 years. You can see just looking at my photos, I am a happy, engaged boy. I am a large dog at about 80 lbs. Plenty of me to love. My rescuer found me along with my 5 siblings in freezing cold. We were beside our Mother, who had been shot in a dog cull by city workers. My Mommy managed to run away from the rescuers, but thankfully us puppies were rescued. We were brought to a home, where they found relief from our nearly half dead frozen bodies. It is a happy ending on this one, because after three days of chasing her down, our mother was caught by the rescuers, who never gave up on her. They treated her wounds and she healed. Well, my Mama and three of my siblings were adopted out to good families in the Middle East. My rescuer fell in love with me and decided to keep me and my sister, Dingo (also listed on here) and one other puppy from our litter. Sadly, my rescuer 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 us. It can be scary here for dogs. She asked some other dog loving people to help her find good homes for us. My one sibling has a possible adopter here, though it is not finalized yet. I am being trained by a dog trainer at the moment. See how I pay attention working with him? I am good with other dogs, but have never been around cats. I am also good with children, but is better to be in a house with older children since I have only been with a few of them and my size might bowl over a little one. It would be great if you had a place where me and my Sis could stay together, but we understand that is difficult and we may have to have separate homes. We are both well mannered in the house. I would love an active home. One where we can get out and do things together... hiking and dog fun, like playing ball. It would be best if you had a yard, as I will need plenty of exercise, both physically and mentally. Have you have ever contemplated Rally or some kind of dog sport? I am very smart, so we could easily learn some great things to do together. Of course, I am not opposed to some terrific cuddles w/ belly scratches too. We really need homes quickly. Please bring us into your home. You will be overjoyed with either one of us. 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.

CHASE - Can I be your hiking buddy?

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.

Australian Kelpie

Well hello out there. My name is Cheerio and I can not believe I might one day move from Egypt all the way to Canada. As you would say: "that's awesome!" I am a very sociable, female dog of between 2 and 3 years old. I look like an Australian Kelpie mated with a small husky, but in fact I am an Egyptian Baladi dog. (They don't even have that as a breed option to enter on this site. I don't think there are many of us in North America.) Like many of my kind, I was born on the streets of Cairo, but I am one of the few lucky ones who was rescued and placed in a foster home. Meanwhile the government authorities are conducting a massive cull of street dogs, mostly by using poison, resulting in horrifying, painful deaths. It is a very dangerous country for unloved dogs and I will be forever grateful to my rescuer for saving my life. Unfortunately she lives in a small apartment and goes out to work all day so I spend much of my time crated. This is incredibly difficult for me as I am an energetic, playful dog who loves company. When my person comes home I follow her everywhere just waiting for the chance to get my ears scratched or to snuggle up next to her. Baladi dogs are known for their loyalty and I am no exception. If you were to make me yours, I would be true to you until my dying day. Because I am such a playful girl, I would enjoy living in a home with another energetic dog. I am a little too boisterous for young children, but would likely get along fine with older ones as I have a very sweet temperament and really love my people. Perhaps you are looking for a running partner? I would be a fine dog for you in that case. One thing you should know about me is that I get sick on long car drives, but maybe you can give me something to help with that? I hear there are other dog parents who have lots of suggestions. And it doesn't happen on shorter trips so please don't let that little issue turn you off me. I am very clean in the house and I am crate trained, but to be honest with you, if you let me, I would much rather sleep on the bed with you! Really, I am an all-round good girl and I'm sure I could make you happy with my loyal, loving energy. Could you please give me a home? I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $550 CAD includes my airfare to Canada.

Hello wonderful people! My name is Cheetos and I’m a friendly & cheerful, 8 month old, 44 lbs. pup who looks like I could be a Anatolian Shepherd mix. I was born in the Middle East. I lost my mom when I was only one month old (where I come from people are not very kind to dogs without homes.) Even at 8 weeks old, I knew to look for a place to be protected, so I went to the yard of a factory. I was so hungry and weak. I just wanted human kindness. The people there did not know how to feed me and just didn't have time to take care of me, so they called a dog rescue group. Then a temporary home was found to keep me safe and cared for. After several months of healing to make me stronger and healthier I was taken to the shelter where I am now. If it weren’t for those kind people at the factory who called the rescue for me, I would have died of starvation. From this, I learned that humans can be kind. Here at the shelter, my most favourite things are to play with my doggie pals and to be touched and pet by the humans here. I like everyone! Older kids are so awesome because they can run and jump like me! Some of the adults are like that too. Yay!! And lots of the other dogs like to run and play like I do too! We run and play all day long. I love other dogs. I have no knowledge about cats though. I’ve heard that if I am adopted I will be kept inside a house to sleep! I don’t ask for much - I will do best with a nice yard to play in (with something called grass – what the heck is that?). I would love to have another dog buddy to play with, if possible. Also……running on the beach?? Hiking? I don’t know what any of these things are, but count me in! I will fit right in with an active family who will give me lots of affection. I have been neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $600.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada. Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca.

My name is Chicklet and I know my face shocks you. I am severely burned from acid and yes, on the outside I am not pretty, but inside there is the beautiful soul of a forgiving puppy who still greets everyone with a wriggling bum and a wagging tail. I am a five month old, female, Spitz/Maltese mix pup of 13lb, and I am currently living in a foster home in the Middle East. Three months ago, I was living with my family when someone threw acid in my face. Perhaps it really was an accident as some have said, or perhaps it was a vile act of deliberate cruelty, but either way it burned my face, nose and right eye. My family took me to the vet to be euthanised, but a supporter of this rescue group intervened and I was given over to their care. I have already had one surgery by the vet here - something called enucleation - but now my skin needs to grow back before I can have the next surgery I need. Because I am still growing there is a chance I may need several surgeries to accomodate my growing jaw, but we will know more about that when I am assessed next week. *Update: the vet here thinks I will soon need a surgery to re-position my nostrils, but it is possible that may be the only one I need. The reason I am telling you all this is because this country is not a good place for my surgical needs and my rescuers are praying there is someone in Canada or America with a heart of gold to offer me a home. If you could meet me you would be amazed to see that I am just full of the joys of life. Nothing makes me happier than playing with other dogs, children or people. I am sweet and gentle with them all so I could easily live in a house with children or other animals. I am super gentle and affectionate with cats as well. You can see me playing with one in the video. Though I am blind in my right eye, that doesn't stop me from scooting around the furniture and rolling on my back for tickles; in fact, it really doesn't seem to affect me at all. The really great thing about being a dog is our incredible ability to live in the moment. So, let me help you learn how to do that too. Bring me home with you and I promise I will spend every moment of every day joyfully showing you what that looks like. My adoption fee of $350 CAD includes my airfare to Canada. LALDR will cover the cost of the initial post-adoption surgery. (I am approximately 18 inches to the shoulders.)

My name is Cleopatra, a lovely female Shepard mix dog. I look like a Tornjak (which is a Croatian Shepard dog) mixed with a Collie. I am about 2 years old and weigh 65 lbs, while standing 25-1/2 inches tall. I am a sweet and mellow girl. This is my story. My rescuer was walking through a building complex she lived in and noticed a sick looking dog. It was me. I stood motionless, hoping she would not see me. I was injured, a sure death sentence here in the Middle East. My rescuer ran towards me, but I could not escape because of my injuries. I was afraid. Thankfully, she was there to help me. The neighbors told her I had my puppies stolen from me. That is one of the many reasons a dog has to be fearful here. My rescuer looked into my eyes of hopelessness, she saw my pain too and began to cry. That made me sad, because she was so gentle to me. The rescuer was trying to get me in her car. She asked people to assist, because I was too large for her to lift, but they would not touch me, saying I was unclean. She began crying again amd after an hour, someone finally helped her. She did not care what they thought, only what it would take to get me well. She brought me to a shelter, but after 10 days, I was not better. A doctor told her to put me down, but instead, she moved me to the big city for care. After mamy months of medicine, good food and lots of love, I started improving. I began to walk again. Love was victorious and I am now healed and well. Although physically fit, my journey of healing inside begins. I need a family to show me how to trust in people. I need lots of love to forget the past and look to the future. I am a little depressed being here in the shelter and so many times just sit in a corner, watching. I am the quietly observant type. I would like nothing better than to be curled up beside you being petted. I love being hugged, as you can see in the one photo. Someone just holding my head close makes me feel cared about and loved. I would like a moderately active home, though I could easily adjust to a slower paced one too. Maybe one that doesn't go too overboard with commotion, yet still likes to be sociable. It would be enjoyable to go on walks, as well as learn to play like other dogs. I bet hiking around exploring would be fun too. Another canine friend in the home is okay by me. I like kids too. I even like kitties, so do not mind sharing a home with them. I am a calm soul, so if you like quiet times too, I am all for that, as well. 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.

Hello out there, it is me, Clover, and I would really love to be your special girl. I am just 12 weeks old, 18lb and 16 inches to my shoulders. Nobody could really say what breed I am but I will likely grow to be a similar size to my mom who is a 45lb lab mix, or my dad who is 60lb and is a Nicaraguan cattle dog. My mom gave birth to me and my 8 siblings after she was rescued from the streets of Nicaragua and brought here to live with a kind lady. Unfortunately, the lady already has 4 other dogs and now there are 9 more of us running around, it is all a bit too much for her and she has to find other homes for us. So do you can help out by bringing me home with you? I am a very relaxed and affectionate puppy and I will be utterly devoted to you. Just take a look into my dreamy brown eyes and I know you will want to make me yours. I am vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee of $600CAD includes my airfare to Canada. I am not spayed yet as I am too young. Steriliztion is mandatory for my adoption to be finalized.

Help. URGENT assistance needed. Corndog needs a foster or adoptive family ASAP. Hi there, my name is Corndog but you can call me Corny. (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 don't 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. The people that take care of me are very worried that I will get picked up by the city workers and killed. So, my situation is rather urgent and I need to get to Canada fast. Ideally, I would love a home where I can play, run around, go for walks, but most of all be living in the house with you. I get along with other dogs, and kids too, so you see, it would be pretty easy to add me to your life. Who doesn't want a corndog? Get yer corndog here. 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. UPDATE: Corny wants so much to be with people, that when left out in the garden, she escapes to find people to be with. This is exceptionally dangerous. She has thus far defied the odds of getting caught by the government, nasty people who would hurt her or hit by a car. Please bring her into your home before something happens. Thank you. I am spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.

Hello, Cuddly here, a shy young puppy from India. I am a 6 month-old female, about 17lb and 18" tall at this point, and in this country I am known as a Desi dog, which is a breed that looks a little like a Saluki/Retriever mix. Possibly the reason I am a little timid is because I was being attacked by a pack of dogs when I was first rescued. I was only 4 weeks old at that time, and my mom had abandoned me: it was a pretty scary experience. So ever since then I am fairly submissive when I meet new dogs, and I take my time to warm up to them. Once I am familiar with them and I know they are not going to hurt me, I will relax and enjoy their company, but I am just not the type that can bound up to greet a new dog and start playing right away. However I am not shy when it comes to cats I meet on walks. I will try to chase those I see outside. It isn’t known if I would behave respectfully towards cats I lived with. When it comes to people I am also shy at first. Please do not be put off by my reserved nature. Once I get to know you I am affectionate and friendly; in fact the people at the shelter nicknamed me Cuddles because I seem to enjoy that so much. I have a feeling that you could help me come out of my shell if you brought me home to live with you. Would you do that for me, please? I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Oh brilliant day to you. I am simply Dee Licious, a female Whippet mix. I currently am 8 months old and weigh about 35 lbs with a height of 25-1/2 inches tall. I am both energetic and smart. A great combination for learning. A person found me here in the Middle East and saw the bone of my back leg was sticking out from my muscle and it was bleeding a lot. This rescuing angel knew I was in great pain, because I was constantly screaming. She brought me to the doctor and had my leg operated on. Sadly, they could not entirely fix the damage and so my leg was cut off above the infection point to avoid the infection spreading to my body. So, here I am a tripaw... but I am alive. I tend to be a kind hearted girl to others, whether it is people or other dogs. Not sure about cats, I have never been introduced to one yet. I am certainly friendly, but I would likely want to chase one. I enjoy non-stop play. I do not seem to need rest, just go go go. I am like the energizer bunny. Probably the best home would be one that is active all the time, going places and doing things. We could be hiking partners even. Gee, the dog park would provide us hours of fun things to do, like play ball. Oh, I bet we could try many things. You will have to gauge how strenuous an activity I can do. But, I will want to try it all. Oooh, I so want to be able to be able to really run around, not be stuck in a shelter with limited area to run. Having a yard for my energy level is probably a necessary thing. It is likely an apartment would not be the best situation. If you had acreage, that would be soooo special, especially if you had a dog friend already there to play with. Please bring me to Canada soon, before I go stir crazy here. 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.

Hiii, feeling a little Deja Vu, like you already know me? I know my name when they call Deja too. You will love me, as I am a calm, sensitive Corgi mix little girl of 13 & 3/4 inches tall and 55 lbs. At 5 years old, I am as big as I will get. Perfect size for a lap from what I hear. My photos will show you I am a happy girl. I was in a shelter outside a major city in the Middle East. The manager there was left with only one other person to help, so it was in a bit of disrepair. I was kept on a chain with only the barest shelter against the snow and rain. My saving grace was a rescuer who knew of the shelter and had seen me there before. I was the smallest dog there and he was worried about me. So he took me out, because I had skin problems from the dirty ground and being on a chain. Was I ever relieved, as life is tough in a shelter for any dog, let alone a little one like me. My rescuer took me to the vet and had my condition cared for. He also got my immunizations and a microchip. This way it will be easier to get into the country of my dreams, Canada or America even. My skin is good now and I am healthy. I will likely need some dental work, as I chewed the chain while at the kennel. I currently live with my rescuer and his wife, but I do not like being in a tiny apartment. And now the landlord is threatening to evict me ! As a Corgi, I am pretty smart and want to get out and do things. My rescuer takes me on a couple walks, but it is not quite enough, because it is dangerous for people here to walk a dog. Once we get back, there is not much to do, so I hop up on the bed and sleep. Being bored makes me lazy and sad. Yes, I am a tad on the chunky side right now from being chained up without exercise, but I should trim up well once I have more opportunity to get about more. I need a place where I can get out hiking and do fun doggie stuff. I hear flyball and scent work are fun. Or maybe you have some other fun games for us. Being a kind and courteous dog, my rescuer knows I would not do well as a guard dog, as his friends have suggested. I am way too loving to be mean. I would rather chase a ball playing and then curl up on your lap for snuggies. Ideally, an active to semi active home would be best for me. If there is a doggie companion to play with, I am good with that too. It would be super if I had a yard in which to run around. Of course getting out for fun on hikes and games with you will be the ultimate. I am not good with cats, as I did not grow up with them. I like kids and any people really. Overall, I am sweet and courteous. My attitude would make me a perfect companion. Please bring me to your land by clicking on the adopt button. Thank you. I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $500.00 CAD, 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.

Hello kind people. I am a refined girl of 2 1/2 years old. I am a gorgeous looking Anatolian Shepherd mix. Just look at my luxurious fur. I am a large sweetheart at around 75 lbs. My rescuer found me along with my 5 siblings in freezing cold. We were beside our Mother, who had been shot in a dog cull by city workers. My Mommy managed to run away from the rescuers, but thankfully us puppies were rescued. We were brought to a home, where they found relief from our nearly half dead frozen bodies. It is a happy ending on this one, because after three days of chasing her down, our mother was caught by the rescuers, who never gave up on her. They treated her wounds and she healed. Well, my Mama and three of my siblings were adopted out to good families in the Middle East. My rescuer fell in love with me and decided to keep me and my brother, Cezar (also listed on here) and one other puppy from our litter. Sadly, my rescuer 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 us. It can be scary here for dogs. She asked some other dog loving people to help her find good homes for us. My one sibling has a possible adopter here, though it is not finalized yet. I am a fairly timid and submissive dog, also quite kind and gentle. I am good with other dogs, but have never been around cats. I am also good with children, but is better to be in a house with older children, since I have only been with a few of them. It would be great if you had a place where me and my Bro could stay together, but we understand that is difficult and we may have to go to separate homes. We are both well mannered in the house. I would love a semi-active home. One where we can get out and do things together... like going to the dog park and taking calming walks together, but also one where we can chill out on the couch and quietly snuggle. It would be good to have a yard, so I can exercise, both physically and mentally. I am very smart and lovely girl, who will light up your life. We really need homes quickly. Please bring us into your home. You will be overjoyed with either one of us. 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.

Hi, my name is Doodlebug and I am a 2 year old female terrier mix of around 17lb. I had to go through a major grooming to prepare myself to meet you, so I sure hope you like me. Although I did not enjoy the experience, I have to say I really like how it feels to be clean. The past couple of years have been pretty awful for me and my friends. We were in a puppy mill in the Middle East until 17 of us were rescued and brought to a shelter. Having human hands touch us with care and consideration is a novelty, let alone being bathed and brushed. Now I feel so good that I am frisky and full of energy like a two-year old dog should be. For whatever reason I am reactive to sounds outside the home so apartment living isn't right for me. I am a very playful girl with people and other dogs so I would love a home that would appreciate that side of my personality. An active home is best for me as I am an energetic dog and need my exercise. I may be small but I can easily handle going on hikes with my new people. Visits to the dog park where I can make some new friends would be great fun for me as well. I can't wait to start my new and improved life with you. 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. It would be helpful for me to have some training so I can learn to practice self correction towards other dogs on walks, but I am a smart dog so I think I would figure it out if you give me the tools. In fact, the best thing would be if you could give me something to do to stimulate my mind and give me a focus, whether that is doing a dog sport or some kind of special task. If you are a dog savvy person you will probably already have some training ideas up your sleeve. 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 build up your stamina for your next 10k run. What do you think - can we be partners? 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.
