Hi all, my name is Benji. I am a beautiful 1 yr old shepherd mix who was rescued after being beaten by a man in the streets Tehran. When my rescuer found me I was emaciated, terrified and had an badly injured front right paw. It had to be amputated but I don't miss it - I can run as fast and as far as any of my four legged companions (as you can see in the picture of me running in the snow). Snow is rare but not unheard of in Iran and this was my first experience with it. I loved it and didn't want to stop playing in it. How much fun would it be to get to play in this magical stuff all the time. I can't wait until someone in Canada decides to give me a chance at a new and wonderful life.
Cats are a lot of fun to chase so I wouldn't be very welcome in a home with these odd creatures. I am great and playful with every dog I meet so would be happy to have another dog in the home and a backyard we could race around in. I am very kind, considerate and respectful of other dogs and play gently with them. Although I do love to run, I am not a high energy dog so don't require tons of exercise. A couple of walks a day and play time in the yard is perfect for me.
One of the effects of my deprived life as a stray is poor teeth from a wholly inadequate diet and I have had several of them removed. But that doesn't impede my ability to eat in the least. In fact eating is another one of my favorite things to do. But more than anything else, more than snow, more than dog play, even more than chasing cats, I love being with people. Some may have hurt me but far more have helped me and treated me with love and tenderness. I know what it is like to be hurt so I am very appreciative of all kindnesses shown me. My gratitude to you for giving me a loving home will be absolute. I am neutered and up to date on my vaccinations. My adoption fee which includes my air transportation to Vancouver is $500.

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.
