My name is Babur although everyone calls me Babs. I’m a 3 year old, 48lb female Mini Kuchi from Afghanistan. If you are wondering about my unusual name, it comes from a famous Central Asian emperor considered a national hero in Uzbekistan. I was rescued off the streets of Kabul by a Canadian aid worker when I was just a puppy. I was trapped in the middle of the road and was almost run over by a car. My rescuer brought me home and raised me in a household of foreign aid workers. Alas, eventually most of the workers had to move away and couldn't take me with them. But one of the other aid workers couldn't bear to leave me in Kabul and brought me back to Canada with her so I could find a new home here.
I am a very affectionate dog and I LOOOOVE my people. There is little I enjoy more than being played with and cuddling beside you and I am calm and quiet in the home.
I find strangers stressful however, and will sometimes become very protective and reactive around people I don’t know. I need a calm, patient person who is willing to commit to training and practice with polite greetings when someone comes to visit or when I meet people near my home.
It seems that I haven’t had much interaction with young children, as I am nervous and unsettled around them, so a home with no children is best for me.
I adore going for car rides and am very well behaved in the car. I am excellent on the leash and walk politely beside you. The only time I pull is when I see a squirrel. But really, what self-respecting dog doesn't want to chase a squirrel? Even though I have great recall inside the house, (you never know if a treat might be offered) I am still working on coming when called while outside. So I am not allowed off leash in an unsecured area quite yet. At night I sleep contentedly in my crate (with the door open of course)
I am slightly fearful of dogs I haven't met before but I am not aggressive. I am generally passive to dogs I meet during my walks and if I am unsure of them I will try to steer clear. But once I trust that they aren't aggressive I adjust quickly and relax. Then before you know it we are playing like bff's (best furry friends).
I am a total play monster with my people. As you can see from my video I love, love, love to play with you - it really brings out the joyful puppy inside me. I have lived with other dogs in Afghanistan and have been fine with them but haven't been seen around cats to know if they would be safe around me.
Because of my timidity with new people and dogs, I need a very dog experienced home with (adult) people who are calm, relaxed and confident, thereby helping me feel the same. I am in great health, am house trained, spayed and microchipped and up to date on my vaccinations. My adoption fee is $400.

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 ( 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.
