My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Hi there. My name is OLIVIA (Ollio) and here is a bit of info about me:
Breed: Spitz mix
Age: 3-1/2 yrs
Gender: female
Weight: 40 lbs
Height: 14 inches

High: sweet, calm, shy, bonds well, enjoys outdoors

Left in the freezing cold in Lebanon to fend for themselves at a young age, I was found on the streets roaming around and looking for food in the garbage. Me and my best friend Orrio were constantly harassed by passerbys. We were threatened with being shot, if not removed. Thankfully, a rescuer came through for us

I'm a clever girlie and will never turn down a good cuddle. You'll find me sweet as honey.

My foster says I am great in the house, calm outside and don't bark a lot. I enjoy the great outdoors. So much so, that it would be best to go to a home with some decent sized property for me to run around.

While very shy around people, especially men, my foster has been working on that. I will bark at  men (including my foster's hubby) a lot when they are around me. I would appreciate you giving me the time to adjust and trust. When out in public I shy away from people, so socializing me is an important part of my training. Needless to say, I prefer to be at home.

I have no aggressions at all and will wait to eat til told ok. I get along fine with other dogs. Not sure cats would be a good match. Older kids should be fine.

I have been having some late night accidents in the home. That is being checked on. For now, just picking up the water at night alleviates this. I am great in the house otherwise. My foster has worked with me to stop pulling on a leash. So now, I'm a good girl.

My foster says I am "lovely". I bond quite well, especially to a woman.

Hoping a special adopter will see my awesome qualities and snatch me up.

I really need to find a home with my pal, Orio (also posted), as we are quite bonded with one another.

Energy Level: moderate-high

I get along with:
Dogs: yes
Cats:  no
Kids: no

Prey drive: fairly high. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise.

Fears: none observed.

Training: a bit
Leash skills: yes. Please be prepared to continue training.
House trained:  yes. Please help me learn where to go in my new home.

Health notes:
I am spayed/neutered, vaccinated & microchipped.

My adoption fee is $750.00. The adoption fee for me and my buddy Orrio together is $1000.

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.

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.

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.
