Pleased to meet you, kind hoomans. My name is FIONA and here is a little info about me:
Breed: Cardigan Welsh corgi mix
Age: 2 years
Weight: 12 kg
Height: 40 cm
Found in a desert in the Middle East, I was sooo hungry and thirsty. Luckily, my rescuer found me and brought me to a safe place. They think I was abandoned by my previous owners.
Well, my whole world has been turned upside down, and I am trying to figure everything out. I really need a forever family who can love and care for me.
From my photos, you can also see how beautiful I am. My rescuers tell me I am a kind and friendly girl, who is also very smart.
Being abandoned, however, has made me a bit sad, but I know this will change once I reach my new home. I am a bit depressed being here, but you can see from my video how my tail starts to wag when I get attention. I love to snuggle with my rescuer and go out for walks. I imagine my energy level will come up some once I am in an actual home.
Right now, I am the smallest dog at the shelter. It’s ok, but the bigger dogs tend to be bouncy and sometimes it’s scary for me. I really hope you pick me, so I can leave here and start my best life with you. I love taking walks and resting on the sofa with my humans. If you have a gentle dog who can build my confidence, that would be great, but not required. I’m happy to fly solo as well. I have never encountered a kitty, so I’m not sure if we would be friends, and I’ve no experience with kids. What I do know is, I will be your very best friend.
Energy Level: moderate to low.
I get along with:
Prey drive: unknown/not observed. My adopter needs to be willing to train me through these behaviors, should they arise.
Fears: My only fear is not being adopted. Please be patient assisting me in my transition.
Training: no, but remember I am very smart.
Leash skills: no... Please be prepared to train me.
House trained: No. Please be prepared to help me learn!
I have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
My adoption fee is $800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes. This includes my transportation to Canada, if I am able to be accompanied by a flight volunteer directly to Vancouver.

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 behaviors arise. Most bad behaviors can be modified if caught early enough, so make sure to nip undesirable behaviors 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.
[MID-EAST DOGS] *Vaccinations: Dogs from the Middle East are vaccinated for rabies, parvo, distemper, leptospirosis, adenovirus type 1 and para-influenza. Bordetella is not given, as that has not been a problem in the Middle East.
