Beirut bitches

Ottawa group imports Lebanese shelter dogs.

Volunteers with Hopeful Hearts, a non-profit organization created in 2007, arranged to take in four shelter dogs last month after an animal protection group in Lebanon flew the dogs to Ottawa.

Some of the dogs had their ears cut off, supposedly to turn them into aggressive guard dogs.

Laurie Martin, a member of the Ottawa dog rescue group, said she wanted to help save the animals from the overcrowded pounds.

“It does make me feel good to know that I have helped these particular dogs who otherwise probably would have lived their whole lives in a shelter, living in a kennel, sleeping on a cold cement floor their entire lives,” Martin said.
