Hi, my name is CARSON (Charlie) and here is a little info about me:Age: 2 yrsGender: maleWeight: ~27 kgHeight: 64 cmHighlights: playful with other dogs, cuddly, good with all people
My rescuers think I had a home and was used as a hunting dog before, but was abandoned when I had an accident and injured my legs. I was wandering the streets when I spotted an animal lover.
When she gave me some attention, I didn’t want to let her go and tried to get into her car. When she let me, I was so happy that I put my head on her lap the whole ride home to thank her.
I am a happy, playful boy who loves meeting new people and going out for adventures. I am very good with people and build up an emotional connection with people very quickly. I am good with children, men and women. I don’t like cats. I get along well with other dogs and enjoy playing with them, but I do consider myself the alpha and I don’t like sharing my food with my four-footed friends.
I love getting attention from people and am very cuddly. I am very loyal to my human.
My ideal home you ask... I would be happy with an active, young family who takes me out on lots of adventures, or a quieter home with children. I am not very fussy, as long as I have people to give me cuddles, I will be happy!
Energy level: moderate
I get along with:dogs: yescats: nokids: yes, await vid
Prey drive: medium. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviours, should they arise.
Fears: unknown/none observed. Please be patient with me through my transition.
Training: a bit on leashLeash: my leash skills still need some work. I will generally happily walk alongside my human, but when I feel the pressure of the leash I get stressed and may refuse to walk. Please be prepared to continue training me.House trained: No. Please be prepared to help me learn!
Health notes: I have a limp in my right hind leg. My rescuers don’t know what caused it, but according to the vet, there is an old break that healed incorrectly on it's own. No intervention or treatment is necessary or recommended now. I will be able to have a normal life despite my limp. Sometimes I prefer not to use my leg, but when I run and play I do use it. My rescuer can provide X-Rays.I have been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
My adoption fee is $750.00 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, 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.
