ID #: 4158 & 4160 Age: 8 yrs Gender: female Status: In-Progress

  • Flying SOON to Toronto
  • 2 separate adoptions ~ they are not a pair
  • Both are around 8 years old

Here are two lovely girls about to fly to Toronto from Istanbul. They are both around 8 years old and both are absolute sweethearts. These are the kind of Goldens any home would be delighted to have as an addition to their family ~ sweet, friendly, medium-sized, spayed, healthy with no known behavioural issues. These girls were both abandoned by their families and desperately deserve a second chance. They will be adopted separately and here’s a peek at who they

Mia #4158
Hi everyone my name is Mia and I’m writing you from Istanbul where my wonderful rescuers saved me from a horrible situation. I could barely walk and I was also pregnant. They took me to a physiotherapist who did wonders for me and got me walking again. She said I was hurt because of being beaten but I don’t like to remember that. I have had my pups and am now spayed and feel terrific. I am a happy, tail-wagging girl who can’t wait to meet you. I love people, other dogs, and literally everyone one I meet. I am one grateful, happy girl.

Ava #4160
My name is Ava and I lived with a family in a small town. My family had another dog and decided they could no longer care for us both so I was the unlucky one given to a local shelter; however, I’m going to choose to believe that I’m the lucky one as look where I’m going! To Canada…woohoo!!! Other than having to lose a pound or two, I have been described as a sweet girl, healthy with no known behavioural issues…whatever that means. I am extremely friendly, gentle, and affectionate with people, kids, and all dogs. I don’t know how I got so lucky to be chosen to come to your wonderful country but I’m ready.

In fact, from both Mia and I (singing):
Our bags are packed, we’re ready to go
We’re standing here outside the door
Already we’re so happy we could cry
We’re leaving on a jet plane…
See you soon!!!

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