Brutus (mexico), Labrador Retriever For Adoption In Langley, British Columbia
Hiya, Brutus here!I am a 55 pound gentle giant who is 7 years old. I may not be a young pup anymore, but boy do I ever have a lot to offer still! I am sweet, gentle, and loving. I am great with other dogs and I love humans. I have been living at the shelter in Mexico for a few years now and I long for a home with a big comfy bed and lots of love!I love a daily walk followed by a snooze (and perhaps a cuddle, hehe). No puppy-like craziness from me, I am cool, calm, and collected. This is one sweet gentleman, if I do say so myself!Although I am such a great dog, unfortunately I haven't had much luck finding the forever home I so badly want. I thought I found it.... but then my owner moved and left me behind. Luckyily, the local neighbors loved me so they fed and cared for me until there was room for me at the Ranch Chapala Shelter.I am neutered, and vaccinated. My adoption fee of $650 includes my airfare to Seattle, presuming I am able to be accompanied by a Flight Volunteer. Due to the global pandemic and associated travel restrictions, it is taking longer than usual to find flight volunteers to escort your dog to Seattle.Dogs from Mexico typically arrive within 4-8weeks of being approved for adoption. NOTE: Mexico dogs must fly into SEATTLE (not Vancouver). This requires a USA/Canada border transfer, which can be done in one of two ways: You may walk across the border at Peace Arch Park to collect your dog from a USA volunteer. You would declare your dog at Canadian Customs before walking back to your car. There is about a 75% chance that CBSA will require you to self-quarantine for 14 days, so please be prepared to do so if asked. Cost to adopter: $32 inspection fee. Pay for a brokerage company (Pacific Customs Brokers Ltd.) to get your dog across the border. You would meet them on the Canadian side, thus having no need to self-quarantine. Cost to adopter: $470 (+ $32 inspection fee) if only 1 dog is crossing OR $275 (+ $19 inspection fee) if 2+ dogs are crossing at the same time ***NOTE: we would try our best to make sure that 2 or more dogs are crossing at the same time in order to keep the cost down for you!*** PLEASE NOTE: There is no expectation for the adopter to pay any more than the adoption fee itself. We simply provide these as options in case an adopter wishes to receive their dog sooner than it would take to fly their dog to Vancouver with a flight volunteer. In the event you wish to choose one of these options, LALDR will be as transparent as possible with you regarding the costs and will ask for your approval before any travel arrangements are made. 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.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.##946788##Adoption processWe 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.
