Hi everyone, my name is Otis. I am a beautiful three year old mixed breed beauty who looks like I could be part border collie. I have a very sad past and a very uncertain future unless someone agrees to adopt me.
Last year I was found on the side of a highway in Tehran. I had been hit by a car and left to die. But I didn't and a very kind woman found me and took me to a vet. They told her my back had been broken and my rear legs were paralyzed. Then they informed her how much it would cost to put me down. When they said that I was smiling up at her - my rescuer. Despite my terrible misfortune and suffering, I had been shown kindness, perhaps the first I had ever had in my life, and that made me so happy. She saw my sweet and gentle soul and just couldn't take my life from me. They were amazed when she told them to do all they could for me.

It isn't possible to find a caring home for a disabled dog in Iran so my rescuer reached out to Home At Last for help. They took one look and me and knew they had to try. I am a very friendly and sociable guy who is great with people, kids and other dogs. Cats are unknown but I am so gentle it is hard to imagine me wanting to chase them. Even if I did it isn't likely I could catch them from my wheelchair. Although, as you can see from my videos, I am a pretty mobile guy who loves chasing a ball and playing with my fur buddies. Naturally my disability means I have to wear a diaper while inside the house. To me, I have almost everything I need - a kind caregiver, friends to play with, a soft bed, good food and a wheelchair to get me around. All I need now is a home and a family of my very own. As soon as one is found I will be flown over to start my new life in Canada. My adoption fee of $300 includes my neutering, vaccinations and my transportation from Tehran.

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.
