this should help
a. From non-rabies free countries: dogs and cats may enter Canada if accompanied by valid rabies vaccination certificate issued in either English or French, by a licensed veterinarian, clearly identifying the animal and showing that they are currently vaccinated against rabies. The certificate should indicate the type of rabies vaccine used, date administered and expiry date (please note that if validity date does not appear on certificate, it will be considered a 1 year vaccine). b. From rabies-free countries (as recognised by Canada): Dogs and cats may enter Canada if accompanied by a certificate, in either English or French, of an official government veterinarian clearly identifying the animal and showing that rabies has not existed in that country for the 6 month period immediately preceding shipment of the animal, and that the animal has been in that country for the 6 months preceding import or since birth. Please note that (a) above is also an option if the animal has been vaccinated against rabies.
Note: Dogs and cats under 3 months old are exempt from above rabies requirements. In addition, please note the following section (c) for all puppies under 8 months old: c. for puppies under 8 months old travelling unaccompanied to Canada, in addition to above, they are required to be accompanied by a detailed health certificate. Please see www.inspection.gc.ca under title `Pets Imports' and then `Dogs' for further details. d. An inspection fee must be paid for dogs and cats from countries other than the USA: CAD 30,00 + tax for the first animal in the shipment, and CAD 5,00 tax for each additional animal in the shipment. Please note that above only applies to personal pets and does not apply to commercial shipments. For further information on importing animals, please view www.inspection.gc.ca under title `Pets Imports' or contact:

We are looking at moving back to canada and we will be taking our dog that we rescued here.

Am I best to go to my vet in Dubai for a health check as well.
