Region: Middle East

Sometimes bad things happen that lead to wonderful opportunities... that is my story. I was involved in a serious car accident here in the Middle East and the people who found me thought it best to put me down, as my treatment would be too costly, but lucky for me there were others willing to step in and help with the surgery costs.

But my story does not end there. It was not long before they came to learn I also had parvovirus. Things did not look good for me, but I am a survivor and after months of care I was finally strong enough to undergo the extensive surgery I needed.

The surgeon had very little hope I would walk again, but again I amazed them! With physiotherapy and lots of love, I was able to regain the use of my legs quite well, if I may say so myself. You may note a touch of a drag in my back leg a bit, but it certainly doesn't effect me or slow me down. Check out my videos. https://youtu.be/qaFU1lT28HE. Now I am running too https://youtu.be/KwmvoM9yLPs.

When I was living on the street food was scarce, so now I will eat and eat and eat ... I am very food motivated. Bet you could use that to your advantage to teach me lots of tricks. 

Next to food my favourite thing is tummy rubs and will drop whatever I am doing to get one of those! 

I am a people pleaser and love all of you two legged creatures .. especially the youngsters - I very much enjoy playing with children. Other dogs used to scare me a bit, but now I am fine with them, big or small.

No one is 100% sure how I will react to cats, as there are none here at my new foster, but one of the rescue volunteers remembers me during my time on the street and never once witnessed any aggression by me towards the cats that approached my food. But if that is important to you, they have promised to try their best to introduce me once our world opens up again. I have encountered cats on my walks with my foster and I do pull, but it is thought it is out of curiousity, not aggression. https://youtu.be/690U-kbYCEM.

This lock down is hard on everyone. But here at my foster, I have blossomed into a healthy happy dog with a calm temperament full of love for everyone. My foster thinks I am just the sweetest dog around. 

Now it is time for a new chapter, the one that has lead me here... one I hope, involves a forever home in Canada with you ! 

I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped.
My adoption fee is $500.00 CAD + applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada.

I am Alexi. If you're in the Seattle / greater Seattle area, please keep reading! If you have a big heart and love cuddles, I could be the one for you!  I am a cute terrier mix and maybe Berger Picard (around 10kg and 3.5 years old) and if you take a look into my deep brown eyes and my large muppet ears, you might quickly fall in love. We are looking to keep me in the Seattle / North Seattle area, as I'm really bonded to my foster Mom, and would need a slow transition. Also, you could think of adopting me as possibly a part time share, my foster Mom would like to stay in my life, help out and dog sit, if that would be okay with you. Feel free to reach out for more information if you're truly interested, and you can chat with my current Mama. You can contact us through this rescue group or even send my foster Mom a message on my Instagram account - info below. I was found by some kind people in an abandoned building, paralyzed in all four of my limbs. - Trust me, I'm a survivor!  The good news - I am now in a loving foster home, just North of Seattle, and have had an MRI. My c5-c6 is injured, which has caused paralysis in my four limbs. My foster mama has done a tremendous amount of work with me to make me stronger.  At this point I can not sit, stand or walk by myself and my bladder gets expressed about 4 times a day. I don't wear diapers, and I have a normal 2x daily bowel movement. I'm one of the few paralyzed dogs that doesn't need to wear diapers! Since the time I've been in foster care, my whole body has become stronger. Six months after I arrived here, my back legs started to "wake up," it was amazing! I now go on daily walks / tows in my cart (see my videos, or check out my IG account). Once my cart starts to get pulled in a forward motion, my rear legs follow (most days, though I do have stubborn days too). Currently I walk 1/4-1/2 a mile daily, sometimes more! I can't steer very well, because of my injury I tend to go left quite often. I move my front shoulders, but my front paws haven't woke up. My days consist of cart walks, park visits, exercises, cuddles and snoozing. Once I get my walk, I'm usually ready for cuddles and a nap. I LOVE to take naps with my human.  You may follow along my adventures here, which I now share with my foster sibling who was also rescued from this organization: https://www.instagram.com/rescuedgypsy/ People have started a go fund me page.  http://www.gofundme.com/help-alexi   I also now have an Amazon.com wish list of my very own! https://amzn.to/2I3kT9v   I always so excited to go outside, and enjoy the fresh air! Sometimes that is in my cart, or my special backpack. Every time my human comes to give me love I do the wiggles and sometimes I sing to her. I know it will take a special person to give me a forever home, but I believe this world is full of special people. I already found one of them and she's my foster mom. If dreams come true, my next special person is reading this right now and lives close to my foster family! I'd love a family who has a nice doggy friend for me, and someone who is home often. I like to be around my humans, in the same room, and outside on adventures. My forever human should be physically fit and will continue my care.  If you live near me, my current Mama will go through my routines with you, including my favorite places to visit.  I live with two cats, sometimes I'm not bothered by them, but sometimes I growl and bark (can you blame me, I am part terrier). I'd prefer a home without small children, and any older children need to be kind, gentle and patient. Once I know you, and you sit and give me treats for a couple of minutes I earn your trust. When I'm out on my walks in my cart, I very rarely bark, though I will do a high pitch happy bark when I see a dog that peeks my interest! I would thrive to be in a home with another gentle and playful dog. Having another loving dog around really has helped my motivation and my happiness. I am also not neutered and need to stay that way. I need my hormones to help me get stronger.  I know it will take a special person to give me a forever home, but I believe you are out there somewhere and when we find each other both our lives will grow bigger with love. Check out some of my videos! https://youtu.be/b7q11RBf34w https://youtu.be/fyHxK46lYus https://youtu.be/BTeiM69_0Mc https://youtu.be/Tk-eEaSbTSo https://youtu.be/hFDEZ-8785Q https://youtu.be/EKcn71KzIBU https://youtu.be/sLwFCahPLWw https://youtu.be/H97s9_hU6RM I have been vaccinated and micro chipped.

Please note: AMBER can only fly into Seattle so her adopter must be able to pick her up there. If you are bringing her back to Canada you must be a Canadian resident, citizen or essential worker, and you will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days.   Hello lovely people; my name is Amber and I am coming to you from S.Korea. I'm a 37lb Jindo mix female, about 5 years old and 21 inches tall. Until July 2019 I was living in horrendous conditions, tied at the end of a short chain, along with 8 other dogs and the long-dead body of one more. Thanks to the efforts of KAWA*, the largest animal rights organization in Korea, we were all rescued and I now have this exciting opportunity to be adopted by someone out there in Canada or the United States. Could you be my person? I have spent the past three months at a special dog boarding facility where I experienced the pleasure of being cared for by loving humans. They tell me I've passed all my temperament tests which means I'm ready to start living with my very own human family. Just like the other dogs who were rescued that day, I am still initially cautious with strangers. But I soon become more sociable if you introduce yourself with treats and a gentle touch.  You can see how quickly I became relaxed and friendly with the little girl in the video.  I really enjoy the company of other dogs and I could play endlessly, especially with the big guys who have some energy.  I can get pretty excited and zoom around like crazy, if given the chance.  Some dogs might find my zoomies overwhelming, though I can also be respectful of small dogs who don't want to play with me. You could probably let me wear myself out at the dog park and then I'd happily settle down quietly at home. Give me a chew toy or a squeaky one and I'll be very content to quietly entertain myself with my toys while you do whatever you have to do.  I'm generally pretty calm indoors and I rarely bark.  When I think of where I've come from, it's hard to believe how much my life has already improved. To think it could get even better and I could have a home of my own, is incredibly exciting.  Can this really be true?   *KAWA works hard to educate the people of S.Korea regarding animal welfare. They ask that my adopter be willing to provide several updates about my life. They use these happy adoption stories to illustrate how dogs like me are loved and valued in other countries. I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee of $500 + applicable taxes, includes my airfare to Seattle.

Due to current travel restrictions there may be a long delay before I can get to you. Please only apply for me if you are willing to wait. This is NOT a dog belonging to LALDR. This is a courtesy posting. Please do not contact us, as we know nothing about the dog. For more information, please contact: woofywishes@gmail.com Bahar (means spring in Farsi) is very kind and affectionate - Bahar was a healthy, kind and loving stray dog which was fed by a group of animal rescuers regularly by the Caspian shore north of Iran. 10 months ago when they went to feed the dogs, they found Bahar dragging herself on the shore. Immediately she was taken to Tehran for imaging, but unfortunately they found out that she was hit by a hard and sharp instrument so 3 of her ribs were broken and her spine was badly injured, which left her legs paralyzed. They also found out that she was very pregnant. She was transferred to Noor shelter and had her babies, but all of them perished due to illness at the shelter. She is very smart and learns very fast. She just needs a loving home and family to forget her horrible past. Bahar has control over her bladder and bowel; using a diaper until getting her on a potty routine will be helpful, as well as training her to give notice when she has to go. She is potty trained and needs a sand box for when she needs to go in order to not to get wet or dirty. She weighs about 49 lbs. Bahar is a resident of Noor Shelter in Iran and temporarily staying with one of the shelter volunteers in her home, but she will not be able to stay there and will be transferred to the shelter again if a permanent home is not found.    Here is a video describing my story: https://www.facebook.com/woofywishes/videos/432159497686464/ If you are interested in Bahar, contact woofywishes@gmail.com. show less

Due to current travel restrictions there may be a long delay before I can get to you. Please only apply for me if you are willing to wait. Are you looking for a cool, calm, collected four-legged companion? Well, you just might be in luck! My name is Blitzen and I am a handsome 4 year old mixed retriever pup from Bahrain. I am quite the looker with my soft black fur, big brown eyes, and white speckled front paws. I stand about 27 inches tall and weigh about 65 pounds. I may have a pretty big stature; however I am super calm and gentle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9lO34-9G2c&feature=youtu.be). How’d I end up in the dog shelter, you might ask? Well, me and my bro were abandoned by our owners when they decided to leave the country. Unfortunately, instead of finding us a new home, they just left us tied up in the garden. We stayed there, tied up for a long time. Thank our lucky stars though, somebody called the Bahrain Animal Rescue Centre (BARC) and they came and saved us! My bro and I are both safe and sound at the BARC shelter now, but we both deserve loving homes with cozy beds, treats, and lots of lovin’. I have been told that I’m grrrreat with other dogs (check out my video of me sharing a kennel with another pooch…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deb6Ca4T8bk&feature=youtu.be). I am still a young, youthful dog who loves walks and adventures, but I can also be calm and chill (can you say snoozes on the couch? Yes please!). My rescuers describe me as a lovely boy who is gentle and great with kids. I will admit, I’m not a huge fan of the kitties though, so a kitty-free home would be good for me. I’m a gem on the leash, look at my video- I’m such a good boy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWitNi4rAag&feature=youtu.be). Look how much I love having my head scratched hehe, I never want my humans to stop! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otCb6R8hv7U) Could you be my furever family? I guarantee we would be fast friends! UPDATE: My foster family in Bahrain noticed that I was walking a bit funny, so they got some x-rays of my hind legs. Turns out that I have pretty severe hip dysplasia and will require a surgery to fix me up! The specific procedure is unknown at the moment, however it will most likely include hip replacements. The vet here in Bahrain says that once I have surgery, I should be able to live a normal, healthy, happy life! I'm only 4 years old after all! My best shot at a full recovery and a long, healthy life is if I receive my surgery in Canada. LALDR and BARC want to fly me to Canada to have my surgery and will try to help fundraise for the vet costs, however there are no guarantees that they will be able to cover the full amount. What I really need is a foster or an adopter who is generous enough to help me out! I will need patient humans who are willing to spend time helping me recover after my surgery. Once you lavish me with your patience and love, I will be in tip-top shape and will repay you with endless doggy kisses and cuddles! I am neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped. My adoption fee of $500 includes my airfare to Canada.

Please note: CAMMIE can only fly into Seattle so her adopter must be able to pick her up there. If you are bringing her back to Canada you must be a Canadian resident or citizen and you will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days.   Hi everyone, Cammie here. I am a two year old Jindo mix from S.Korea. My weight and height are 32lb and 21 inches. Before our rescue by KAWA* (the largest animal rights organization in S.Korea), my mom and I did not have a good life. We lived out our days at the end of a short chain with no shelter and no comfort.  Thankfully, that's all behind us now. My mom, Damson, already has a home waiting for her in Canada, and I'm hoping it's my turn next. When I was examined by the vet I was found to have early stage heartworm (stage 2), but I completed my treatment and was cleared back in February of this year. After that I spent three months at a special boarding facility which helped prepare me for my future life in a home with you. I passed all my temperament tests and all that's left now is to find my people. Admittedly I am still somewhat timid when I meet strangers, so I'm hoping you will be the patient sort who will let me make the first move. It certainly tweaks my interest when you offer me treats and come down to my level to say hello. Once we've broken the ice and I've begun to feel comfortable around you I know it will only be a matter of time before we become the best of friends.  My energy level is fairly typical for a dog of my age. I love going for walks and I really enjoy playing with dogs who are a similar size to me.  (Small dogs don't really interest me much.) Sometimes I feel a little anxious when I first meet a new dog, but I quickly get over that and become very playful. Occasionally my play style can get a little wild and crazy so you may need to get me to calm down a wee bit so I don't intimidate my doggy friends. If you have a dog-savvy cat in your home I could probably live with him or her.  While I do feel a little curious about cats it's easy to get me to transfer my attention to you so this is a good indicator that I can be trained to accept a cat as my room mate. I do hope that someone reading this will say "she's the one for me". I want to be that lucky dog who gets to spend her days with a person who loves her.    *KAWA works hard to educate the people of S.Korea regarding animal welfare. They ask that my adopter be willing to provide several updates about my life. They use these happy adoption stories to illustrate how dogs like me are loved and valued in other countries.

Hello, it's me, Charli! I appear to be a 3-year old Australian Kelpie mix, weighing 37 pounds and standing about 25 inches tall (to my shoulders). I came all the way from Bali and now I’m living with my foster mum in Canada. In Bali people don't care much for dogs.  I was left as a pup at a local garbage dump where my rescuers found me living amongst the filth. They tried to rescue me for many days, but I always ran away because I was so terrified of absolutely everything and everyone. Luckily, because of their persistence, I ended up living pretty happily with my rescuers and several other rescue dogs for years. Sadly though, they had to return to their home country, Australia, and couldn't take us with them. So here I am, a Bali girl in the big city of Vancouver! After arriving here, I was very sad for a while and had a hard time adjusting to my new life. My new foster mum has made me feel safe though, so I stick to her like glue now! Although it has been quite a challenge adjusting to my new life in Canada, my foster mama says I am slowlyyy coming out of my shell. I am still quite anxious and jumpy, and quite frankly I can be a bit grumpy towards other dogs and men. We’re still not sure why – perhaps I was abused as a little pup or bullied by some other dogs? I’m definitely a “Mama’s Girl” – so I think I’d do best in solo-pet home with a female owner (Girl time? Count me in!!) Because I love my foster mum so much, I have some separation anxiety when she leaves me alone (fun fact: I can howl pretty darn loud). My foster mum is working with me on that and has started taking short trips out of the house to get me used to her not being there. It’s a slow process, but good things take time, right? My foster mum has also found out that I love having my own space – so me and my crate are pretty good buddies, it makes me feel safe and comfortable. The crate is never locked, so I can come and go as I please! What’s my ideal home? Well, I’m pretty athletic and very good on leash, so perhaps a home with a jogging buddy? Or someone who could take me for long walks in the forest… I hear its peaceful up there (and boy could I use some peace in my life!!) I can jump really high by the way, so you may want to keep an eye on me if your fence isn't very tall. I am also very smart and have learned lots of tricks! Mostly, I crave love from someone gentle and calm; someone who understands that I'm quite nervous in the beginning, especially with men and other dogs (I’ll run away with my little tail between my legs). My world has been turned upside down multiple times, so I just want to find a secure, loving home where I feel safe. Are you patient, gentle, and kind? Could you please be my furever family? I know you're out there somewhere. Please come and find me.   UPDATE: As much as my foster mum would LOVE to adopt me (because we adore each other!), I have not been able to get past my fear of men and I still bark at my foster dad whenever he enters the room.  My household needs: - preferrably WOMAN-ONLY (or a male + female home with an extremely patient, gentle man with rescue experience) - SINGLE-PET home (I want all your love to myself!)   I am spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and my adoption fee is $500 CAD.   Looking for more furry friends?

Due to current travel restrictions there may be a long delay before I can get to you. Please only apply for me if you are willing to wait. This is NOT a dog belonging to LALDR. This is a courtesy posting. Please do not contact us, as we know nothing about the dog. For more information, please contact: woofywishes@gmail.com Chiko is very smart, handsome, affectionate and an amazing boy. He will make an absolutely wonderful addition to any family. He is 2.5 years old, a neutered male, Anatolian Shepherd mix. He is very social and loves the company of people of all kind and dogs. He is not cat tested, but since he has such an amazing temperament, with patience and proper introductions, he will be ok. He is crate trained. House-training is work in progress, and he may have a couple of accidents at first but he is so eager to please his master that he will be fully house-trained in matter of few days. He is not a barker nor flight risk, and he is good on leash.  History: Chiko was a stray dog and he was rescued after being hit by a car. He had several broken bones including a broken pelvis. He went through 3 procedures and he has made full recovery. He runs and jumps with no issues, but sometimes has a limp in his hind legs when he is running.  Chiko is healthy, vaccines are up-to-date, and micro-chipped.   You can see a couple of videos of Chiko in his Instagram post: https://www.instagram.com/p/B6wTTHthzuS/   If you are interested in Chiko, please contact woofywishes@gmail.com. show less

Due to current travel restrictions there may be a long delay before I can get to you. Please only apply for me if you are willing to wait. Chixxy (Alyssa) Breed: Anatolian Shepard / Spanish Greyhound (Galgo) Age: 1 yr Gender: fe, spayed Wgt/Hgt: 72 lbs / 32-1/2 inches Energy level: moderate to moderate-high Relations: good with dogs / unknown cats, kids Highlights: sweet natured, bit shy Region: Middle East I have a very sweet nature, though I can be a bit shy until I get to know you. After that, I am a lover.  I am a tall, leggy blonde who loves to stretch her legs1  Wanna go for a walk with me? My mother was getting pregnant way too often on the streets here in the Middle East. Our rescuer caught her with me and my litter mates when we were about 2-3 months old.  We were put into foster homes until we were older.  All my siblings have already gone to homes in Canada, and I am ready to come too!  you saved the best for last!  I am a very loveable girl, smart and a fast learner. I get along with other dogs, so a buddy in the home is fine. I should be ok with kids and cats, but I haven't had a lot of time with them. An energetic to moderately active home would be right up my alley. Having my own doggie bed would be so nice, but of course if you let me, I would be cuddled up with you in your bed too. Are the dog parks as fun as I hear? I sure hope so.   I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated µchipped.  My adoption fee is $550.00 CAD + applicable tax. This includes my transportation to Canada.   Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Daniel (Billy) -  Foster lined up. Thanks. Breed: Shepard/Pointer Age: 1 yr Gender: male, neutered Wgt/Hgt: 43 lbs / 20 inches Energy level: moderate to active Relations: good with dogs / unknown cats & kids Highlights: house trained, polite, loves to play ball I was saved from a horribly painful death at the hands of monstrous people in the Middle East. They had doused me with gasoline and were about to light me on fire, when my rescuer swooped in and pulled me put of the situation. They also cut my ears & tail off. https://youtu.be/PARiXHddxMo. My rescuer planned to keep me, but the neighbors have complained. People here in the Middle East still think dogs are unclean. It is all bogus of course, but they need to relearn that dogs are good. Anyway, the police have given my family here a month to get me out. That means by the end of November. You will find I like to please and am quite the polite little boy. Bonus, I am already house trained. I will likely be a medium-large sized dog, so I hope you like lots of big loving coming your way. I like other dogs, though haven't been around kitties or kids yet. Being I am yet a puppy and a sweet one at that, it is likely I could get along fine with respectful children. It is just that I have not been tested with any yet. See how bouncey, trouncey I am in my vids. Maybe agility sports should be in my future. https://youtu.be/X3RXe_K44Sk, https://youtu.be/AKLG2v6gCN8. I love to play ball. So, I hope you like to do fun activities like that. Maybe some hiking or ball playing at the dog park? While I am young I will probably be fairly active. Once I mature, probably moderate to active.  There is someone there for me reading this now, I just know it. Please help me and keep my rescuer from crying. She is distraught over this. I will be your lifelong buddy... and cuddle bud and playmate and... well, you get the picture. Update: I have been chosen by a loving adopter & am currently with a rescuer until a flight is found.   I have been spayed/neutered, *vaccinated & micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $600.00 CAD, this includes my airfare to Canada.   Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

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. Please review our adoption guidelines at http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca Disclaimer: In order to protect both dogs and children, the Board of Directors has decided that unless a representative of LALDR has personally met the dog or has been satisified by the international rescue of the dogs' ability to live with children, we will not approve a family for adoption. Specifically, we will not approve an adoption to a family with children age 8 or younger. We are hesitant to approve an adoption to a family with children under the age of 12 but will treat each application individually. show less
