Hi. I'm actually leaving a comment here to seek some advice. I'm a US citizen, and I've been on a reserve up in Canada for the past few months. I grew to love one of the dogs up here, cared for him, brought him inside to stay and sleep, and also fed him. He's about 11 or 12 years old, and he's a big dog. I was told he was hit by a car last year, bled profusely, and was never taken to a vet to heal properly. He has difficult walking and even sitting down and getting up, but he's got a great attitude and is such a loving dog. I was planning on taking him out of the reserve with me when I return home in the next month because I don't feel that he has much time left and the thought of him dying either from the bitter winter or from a pack of wolves that will soon cross the frozen lake onto the reserve breaks my hurt. I thought about taking him to a shelter, but the thought of him being left alone and probably not being adopted to a loving family because of his age saddens me so I feel the best thing I can do for him is to take him with me. Could you give me some advice as to what I am to do before I leave the country?

Angela,
First, I would like to thank you for being so kind and taking this fellow under your wing. I understand that if you take dogs across the border you will need to show that the dog has had current vaccinations. When I have crossed the border with my dogs I always have this information with me but have not been asked to actually show the information. He should only need rabies vaccination. Is there a vet nearby who can give him the necessary vaccination(s)? Once you get that, you will of course receive paperwork showing that he's had his shot(s). This should be all they require at the border, if they look at it at all. You don't need to mention that you are bringing him into the States when you get to the border. Good luck, bless you and please keep me posted! I wish there were more people like you.
