Facts about Pawlo

  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
Hi everyone, I am a stunningly handsome, 100 lb 2-3 year old male Great Dane mix. I was recently rescued from a terrible shelter in Washington and brought to Vancouver by a very compassionate woman who is now fostering me. When she saw me at the Washington shelter I was so scared and shaking so badly that the she knew she had to get me out of there.
Now that I am in a home I have gained some confidence and trust and my loving personality has come out. I adore my people and am very affectionate and as cuddly as a dog my size can be. When I meet knew people I am aloof at first but once I get to know them I am begging for attention and affection. I am good with medium and large size dogs although I have shown little interest in playing with them. When we meet there is the traditional sniffing and then I move along. Another large dog in the home might help bring out my playful side.
I can't live with cats, rabbits or small dogs as I have a high prey drive. It doesn't seem like I want to hurt the little critters but I do like to chase them and pick them up with my mouth. As this seems to be generally considered an undesirable behaviour I need to be kept away from small dogs when on walks.
I have a medium energy level and enjoy a couple of good walks a day. When we first start out for a walk I pull a bit but once you remind me to stop I take up a nice mosey-ing along pace. Strange noises and unfamiliar areas can make me nervous and put me on high alert. It seems as if I haven't had much exposure to the world. But as each day passes I am gradually becoming more relaxed. It helps if our walks stick to a familiar route.
I am very smart, eager to please and food motivated so training me is a breeze. I know sit, paw, down, stay (most of the time) and can catch treats tossed at me like a pro. As I am a bit rambunctious at times I would be best suited to a home with older children.
One of my favorite things to do is people watch. I love staring out the front window and watch as people and dogs walk by. Car rides are the best because I get to see the world go by. When you leave me in the car to go into a store I love to get into the drivers seat and pretend I'm driving. As you can see from my video I also love playing with my toys and am very skilled at entertaining myself.
I am a happy, healthy house trained boy who is neutered and up to date on my vaccinations. My adoption fee is $300.

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.
