Greetings everyone. My name is Bahar. I’m a 13 lb, 1 year old female shihtzu/terrier mix. When my rescuer in Iran found me, I had a broken jaw and open wounds on my back. Nobody knows what I’d been through or how I sustained those injuries, but there is little doubt I was deliberately beaten. Since then, I’ve had surgeries to correct my jaw and my back has completely healed. But my emotional scars are not as easy to recover from. I have a fear of old people, especially those holding canes and will bark at them. But I am a gentle dog and have never attempted to bite them. My rescuer thinks it has something to do with the hardships and cruelty I’ve endured. My fear of old people may not ever go away because it was a very traumatic episode in my life. Every so often I am troubled by nightmares, but those are happening less and less. I am a smart little girl who is very loving and affectionate. I am great with children and other dogs. I will need to be taught basic commands but I am young, intelligent and eager to please. All I am waiting for now to start my new life is for someone to apply to foster-to-adopt me so I can be flown to Canada. My adoption fee which includes my transportation to Canada, spaying, vaccinations and a microchip or tattoo is $450.

About Home at Last Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Home at Last Dog Rescue is a small group of volunteer animal lovers whose goal is to help homeless, neglected and abused dogs find caring and responsible homes.

Our volunteers are dedicated individuals who have joined together to form a new rescue group. We are commited to helping dogs in need and to provide them a second chance at a happy life.

Our dogs are not kept in a shelter. We depend on the support of caring and compassionate people to care for our dogs until we can find them permanent, loving homes. We provide vet care and rehabilitation to all of our dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a rescue dog, the first step is to search through the list of our dogs currently available for adoption. All dogs remain on Adoptapet and our website (homeatlastdogrescuebc.ca) until an adoption is finalized so all dogs listed may be applied for.

Our job is to find the right home for each of our dogs. We will contact you to arrange for a home check at your convenience. Unfortunately, many of our applications are rejected, not necessarily because there is anything wrong with the home, but because it is not the right match for the dog. Following a successful home visit, we will arrange for you to meet the dog, usually in their foster home. At that time, you will decide if you would like to adopt the dog.

Before an adoption can be finalized, we will ask you to sign an adoption contract. Depending on the dog’s personality you may be asked to visit the dog once or twice before taking him or her home. This will be most common with shy, timid dogs. Outgoing and confident dogs can most often be taken home after the first meeting. Documentation for each dog will be provided upon adoption. Adopters must be ready to pick up their adopted dog home as soon as they have been approved and have agreed to adopt the dog. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC cannot hold dogs for people who have applied but are not yet ready to accept the dog into their home.

Please note: an adoption fee is required for successful applications. The adoption fee is non-refundable, even if the dog is subsequently returned. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC will always take back one of our dogs for any reason, and without question. Adoption fees for our dogs vary. The price varies based on the age and medical needs of the dog being adopted; costs are judged on a case by case basis.
