  • 6-year-old angel
  • Missing her left paw
  • Loves people, children & other dogs

Hi everyone in Canada! I am also writing to you from Istanbul. Thank goodness I’m right-pawed because as you can see from my video, my left paw is missing (and they think I might have been born this way). If I was a southpaw, I wouldn’t be able to write to you at all (teehee).

My amazing rescuers here in Turkey found me on the streets of a town called Izmir where I was living. They took me in and are taking great care of me. You can see by my video that I am a very happy girl. The kind rescuers here are now telling me I am coming to your wonderful country to find my forever family ~ I simply can’t believe how lucky I am? I have been described as super sweet, energetic, and loving. Wow, pretty good, eh? See, I’m already learning your Canadian lingo. I absolutely love people, children, and other dogs. The doc says I’m healthy and I have no behavioural issues that they know of, in fact, they say I’m an absolute angel. I am around six years old and don’t worry about my left foot. It doesn’t stop me one little bit from getting around as you can see. I think they made a movie about me called ‘My Left Foot’…but I suspect it wasn’t really about me (teehee).

Asta will be arriving in Canada soon. If you would like more information about Asta call our hotline toll-free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
