My story

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

Good day. My name is MARLIN (Martin) and here is a little info about me:
Breed: German Shepard/Canaan dog mix
Age: 6 years 8 months
Gender: Male
Weight: 56 lbs
Height: 60 cm
Highlight(s): quite energetic, know basic commands, smart, happy

I need a fair amount of exercise, so will be most pleased with a very active family. As you can see, I am a very smiley, happy boy.

After being confiscated from a neglectful home, I went to a local shelter. I was around 1 year old then. I have been at the shelter since. It is time I find a home. I need a fairly experienced home that knows about & has experience with training.

Okay, so I can be a bit choosy about who my friends are. Probably best if I am an only dog in the home. I certainly can intro to other dogs. If I like them, we'll get along fine

Since I have never lived in a home before, having a yard would be good, so I can acclimate to living inside better, by having plenty of outdoor time, where I feel most comfortable right now. I hope you are willing to give me time to understand a house is a great place to be.

I have had basic training: leash walking with a halti, heel, sit, down, bed/place, in addition to exposure to other dogs. Continued training and review of what I know would be good. I'm a smart pupper, so could learn tricks too Here I am calm at the vet's office:

Energy Level: high

I get along with:
Dogs: Some. I get along with some of the other shelter dogs, but not all.
Cats: No
Children: Yes

Fears: unknown/none observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition.

Training: yes, basic training commands and leash walking
Leash skills: yes. Please be prepared to continue training.
House trained: No, as I live in a shelter environ. Please be prepared to help me learn!

Health notes:
I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

My adoption fee is $700.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight 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.

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.
