My story

Good day! My name is BUDDYBOY (Buddy) and here is some info about me: Buddyboy

Breed: Anatolian Shepherd/German Shepard mix
Age: 3 years
Gender: male/neutered
Weight: 23 kg
Height: 50 cm

Hola amigos! Que pasa? That’s what’s up, in Spanish. I am learning as many new languages as I can in order to increase my chances of getting adopted. I was recently rescued from a very horrible situation from an addict in the Middle East. Unfortunately, that is the fate of many dogs in my country.

I was one of the lucky ones! I was soon after taken to a shelter. Life in the shelter is not very glamorous but trust me, it is a lot better than living on the streets with an addict.

Getting along very well with all other dogs is my specialty and I absolutely love people! I am very quiet and mellow. I hardly ever bark and would be an ideal pet for a family. Though I can be a bit shy when meeting someone new, just give me time to warm up.

The street and cars are something I have never seen since my rescue, so please be aware of new things that I may need to get accustomed to.

I also get along with kids. I have not been tested with cats, but because I have an amazing temperament, I don’t see why I would not get along with them also. Thanks for looking at my profile! I hope to see you in Canada soon! I promise to be your buddy for life!

Energy level: low to low-moderate

I am good with:
Dogs: yes
Cats: Unknown, most likely yes
Kids: yes

Prey drive: I have no prey drive, but my adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviors should they arise. I lived with two small dogs the first six months after being rescued.

Fears: I will need some patience in order to get used to my new environment. I am skittish and shy when I first meet strangers.

Training: Some leash training
Leash Skills: I am good on the leash, but can use continued training
House trained: no. Please be prepared to help me learn!

Health notes: My teeth have been cleaned, so I can give you a big smile.
I have been neutered vaccinated and microchipped.

My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a fight volunteer directly to Vancouver

Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, and read about Loved at Last Dog Rescue.

Information included in the profile is provided to us from the international rescuer or local fosters. LALDR does not have access to overseas dogs and cannot always verify the accuracy of their descriptions. Every dog is an individual and can act differently in different situations based on the person adopting them and the environment in which they live.

Please Note: LALDR highly encourages adopters to research some local dog trainers before their dog arrives. Although a 1-on-1 trainer is often not needed, it is good to have someone in mind in case any problematic behaviours arise. Most bad behaviours can be modified if caught early enough, so make sure to nip undesirable behaviours in the bud before they become serious problems.

Basic training should be taken seriously, but should not begin until your dog is well settled in - at least a couple of weeks. After you feel your new dog is relaxed and comfortable in their new home, check out training courses in your local area. Even basic beginner courses like those taught at a local pet store can have a huge benefit in helping your dog learn to socialize and get used to being in public situations, all with the added benefit of strengthening their bond with you.

While most dogs find escorting passengers flying directly to Vancouver, some will find flights through Toronto or  Montreal. In that case, additional fees will apply to fly your dog to Vancouver by cargo. Unaccompanied cargo costs within Canada range from $350 - $550 depending on the size of the dog. LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding these costs.

The age and breed of a dog is usually an educated guess, so we are not able to guarantee the accuracy of age or breed of our dogs.

Normally, we will not approve adoptions to homes with children under 12 years of age. However if a dog has been determined to be good with children we will approve applicants with children 8 years or older. More information can be found on our website.

[MID-EAST DOGS] *Vaccinations: Dogs from the Middle East are vaccinated for rabies, parvo, distemper, leptospirosis, adenovirus type 1 and para-influenza. Bordetella is not given, as that has not been a problem in the Middle East.

Take the Pet Home

As adopters of overseas dogs will be taking their dog home from the airport, they have a couple of weeks to decide if the dog is a fit.

Additional adoption info

We offer a foster to adopt program for adopters of overseas dogs. As they will be taking their dog home straight from the airport, they have a couple of weeks to decide if the dog is a fit. In the rare times the dog isn’t found suitable we will find the dog another home.

More about this rescue

Loved At Last Dog Rescue operates in the Greater Vancouver area. We rescue and rehome local dogs as well as homeless dogs from numerous countries around the world, including Mexico, Korea, China, Iran, Kuwait, Bahrain and India. Many of these dogs have experienced hardship and cruelty yet they are gentle and loving. We have found that dogs who have experienced suffering appreciate every kindness shown them. All our dogs are fully vaccinated, microchipped and those over 6 months are spayed or neutered.
