Hi hiya. My name is ABBIE (Abby) and here is a little info about me:Breed: Lab/Bernese Mtn DogAge: 6 yrs (almost 7)Gender: femaleWeight: 65 lbsHeight: tbdHighlight(s): loving, friendly, playful, energetic, smart
As a very loving dog with a huge heart of gold, it becomes immediately apparent once you meet me.My current family has to downsize and unfortunately, they just no longer have the time, money and space to provide me with the life they know I deserve.You see, I have allergies and take immunotherapy for the issue, which helps keep most of my symptoms at bay. I have suffered from chronic ear allergies, but they are more seasonal and regular grooming helps reduce flare ups. Despite these things, I am quite happy, healthy and energetic.I still have plenty of the labbie exuberance for life and actually display both breed characteristics, though probably moreso the labbie ones. I'm a friendly girl with people and get along fine with other dogs (though aside from saying hi, not really all that interested), having lived with another for 4 years. I have been around cats a bit, but not for long periods, so not sure how living with one would be. I enjoy being around people, getting petted and just hanging out. I've spent a lot of time around children and am very friendly with them, including children as young as 4 and 6 years.Typical fun for me is water play, balls, and food. Yeee-uuup, I am food motivated. That will lend well to my learning lots of doggie tricks, which I must say I know many already. I have a loud Bernesey bark when someone knocks on the door, but other than that, I am pretty quiet. I guess I can get a bit excited when someone forst arrives and jump, nibble and all.Ideally, I'd love a home that can provide two good walks a day. I am good on leash most of the time, "squirrel"... ahem, but when I see a squirrel, I may suddenly pull.While I did live in an apartment for a year, a home with a yard is much more ideal for me. I would also love plenty of family to love on.

Fears: none observed. Please be patient assisting me in my transition.Training: briefly describeLeash 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 get chronic ear infections & paw irritation due to allergies. Usually every 2-6 months, moreso happens seasonally though. I am on immunotherapy to help. Grooming helps curb it down. Had elbow dysplasia surgery at the age of one (bone fragment removal.) Good recovery with no issues since. Rcently had lump biopsy on left side (July 2023 - follicular cyst. Vet said no worry, nearly gone now.I have been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.My adoption fee is $600.00 CAD plus applicable taxes.
Disclaimer: It is important for all applicants to visit our website, http://www.lovedatlastdogrescue.ca/adopting/ 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.
