Maggy (mexico), Labrador Retriever For Adoption In Langley, British Columbia
Hiya, my name is Maggie! I am a petite 6 month-old lab/shepherd mix pup weighing about 15 pounds (and still growing!). When I grow up I think I'll be a pretty medium-sized pooch. Aren't I a cutie patootie? My story is a bit of a mystery. All I know is that I was found as a stray in Guadalajara and was doomed for euthanasia because there are too many street dogs in Mexico. Thank my lucky stars though, my amazing rescuers swooped in and saved me and my sister (Mimi) from death row!I am currently living in a foster home with my sis and some other dogs. Being surrounded by other doggies has made me a very social pup! I love to play and I am full of energy-- I mean, what puppy isn't? Being a puppy, I exhibit all of your classic puppy behaviours (you know, some nipping, jumping up, restless zoomies, some adolescent stubborness... hehe). What can you expect though, I'm just a youngin'! Lucky for me (and you, of course!), I still possess that ridiculously cute puppy-look. I am a kind-hearted, energetic pup that is keen to learn! I am a clean slate in terms of training—I've got my whole doggy life ahead of me to learn so many tricks and good manners. I haven't been tested around cats, so I'm not sure how I'd do in a household with them. I am SO ready to find my loving forever home-- do you think you could make room in your hearts for a sweet gal like me?I cannot come to Canada until I'm 8 months old, so please be patient and wait for me just a little while longer! I will be spayed and vaccinated before I make my journey to the Pacific North West.My adoption fee of $750 includes my airfare to Canada, 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 Vancouver.Dogs from Mexico typically arrive within 4-8weeks of being approved for adoption. NOTE: Mexico dogs 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.##945347##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.
