Good with dogs,
Shots are up-to-date,
Pupdate: I have definitely made some improvements at warming up to some strangers other than my foster and allowing them to show me love, so there is definitely hope for more progress.
I am currently in Vancouver!Update from Foster: I continue to be a loving dog who greatly enjoys cuddles and playtime with my humans. I am working on my confidence with new people I meet as I am still recovering from the awful treatment I received as a puppy. I love playing with dogs who are kind to me and I look forward to getting to know my new adopters. I can live in a family with other dogs or as the only dog. I would like a yard but as long as I'm near pleasant walking areas, a home without a yard would be fine too. Are you perhaps my new human?
Hana is a very sweet and affectionate girl who loves to cuddle and get pets. She loves to play with toys on her own and loves to chase balls, but still hasn’t figured out how to bring the ball back. She is very quiet and is housetrained. She eats her meals without any hassle. Oddly enough, she doesn’t like peanut butter, but loves roast beef! She is very easy to walk on a leash but can be fearful of other dogs that get too close. She is best suited for a home without any other pets but hopefully, with patience and training, she can improve her social skills with other animals.
Here is some info about me:Breed: Dalmatian/Lab mixAge: 3 yrsGender: fe, spayedWeight: 28 kg/ 62 lbsHeight: 62 cm/ 25-1/2 in
My rescuer saved me when I was only 5 months old. A crazy man chained me to a tree and was beating me, because I ate his chicken. I was sooo hungry. They had no idea how long I was in that horrible situation, but no one helped me.
It was actually my rescuer's friend that first saw me, but she was afraid to approach the angry man to stop him. So she called my rescuer and they both went together and hid until the guy left. Then they went and unchained me to bring me to safety.
I was so weak I couldn’t walk on my own. They had to carry me to their car. They took me to the vet and amazingly, I didn’t have any broken bones and no severe injuries from being hit. I was of course very weak from hunger and had no energy to walk. I received an IV injection and came home with my rescuer who cared for me til I was healthy again.
Time for my very own home now though. Don't you just love my freckled fur?
I am super friendly. Also, quite active and playful. I've got dancing feet, hip hopping all over. Life is so joyful. I enjoy being around other dogs, as well as people.
However, where I live is an abandoned area, where many other dogs are living with me. My rescuer comes to feed us as often as possible, but it is not daily nor as much food or as good a nutrition as we need. We are safe there though. So, I await you being my next hero and saving me and bringing me to Canada for a truly good life.

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 and should begin within a few days AFTER arrival. Check out courses in your local area and enrol right away. 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. More information can be found on our website.
*Vaccinations: Dogs from the Middle East are vaccinated for rabies, parvo, distemper, leptospirosis, adenovirus type 1 and para-influenza. Bordatella is not given, as that has not been a problem in the Middle East.
