My story

Unfortunately, due to recently introduced regulations by the CDC, dogs from Lebanon can no longer be imported into the US. Therefore, this dog is only available to Canadian residents.

Helloooooo Canadaaaaa! My name is Kyros and here is some info about me:
Breed: American Pitbull Terrier
Age: 6 years
Gender: male
Weight: 28 kgs/ 61lbs
Height: tbd

Witnesses saw me being dumped from a car on a busy highway. Terribly shameful thing for someone to do. Thank goodness my rescuer saved me. After my rescue, my old owner was identified and my rescuer discovered that I’ve lived most of my life (5 years) tied outside a garage through winter and summer. Horrible again.

I got adopted shortly after (6 months) and unfortunately my owner passed away due to a sudden heart attack. So sad. We were great together and he was helping me learn. After that, I have been placed in a paid boarding facility, where I am extremely depressed and barely eating.

I am an extremely loyal and protective dog. I often get depressed and stop eating if I am not with a human for a long period of time. I warm up to people very quickly and love to bond with humans. I stay close to my human and give them a lot of sloppy kisses and love.

I can be trained easily once I trust the person, you just need to find my motivation (usually vocal and physical praise.)

I was initially reactive towards all dogs, but with training and some socialization from my previous owner, I was able to approach female dogs in a playful way without reacting. See my video. Though still not friendly with male dogs at all (have a bite history with a male dog). I will never be the dog who can be left off-leash in a park, but with proper training and leadership, I can be a very good dog and companion!

Through the work my owner had done, I can walk past barking male dogs (with a secure fence separating us) without flinching (before I was adopted, I used to lunge and pull right away), but if one of them crosses a line and annoys me, I will still lunge and snap at them. If my training is resumed, I'm sure I can improve further. I showed definite improvement with someone taking the time to work with me.

The best home would be one without young children or other pets.

I will do well with 1.5 hours of walking per day and around 30 minutes of running or tug play. It would be ideal to be in a home with a fenced space for off-leash play, since I cannot be left with other dogs.

It would be grand if I could go to a Pitbull knowledgeable home.


Dogs, ok with females (on leash only) and not friendly at all with males.
Cats, unknown, but not likely
Kids, unknown. I greet kids (7-10 yrs) during walks, but have never lived with one. I seem friendly and kind with them during walks.


none that my rescue mom knows of! I do get jumpy if someone does a lot of sudden movements around me due to my abusive history.

Leash skills – I am leash reactive, so wil need continued work on this. My previous owner was teaching me how to walk nicely on the leash, but I still pull a lot!
House trained – I was in a home before, but need a refresher!
Other tricks – sit and stay

I am a healthy boy. I am fully vaccinated and neutered. I am also microchipped!

My adoption fee is $650.00 CAD + applicable taxes, which includes my airfare, if a flight volunteer is found directly to Vancouver. I would likely fly through Montreal, see extra costs below.

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.

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.
